Judith A. Livingston, senior partner of Kramer, Dillof, Livingston & Moore (KDLM) is one of the most successful plaintiff’s attorneys in the US. She has won 35 trials with verdicts in excess of $1 million and has negotiated hundreds of settlements that have resulted in payments to her clients of almost a half-billion dollars.
She is the current Vice President of The Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group limited to 100 of the best plaintiff lawyers in the United States. 2020 marks her 30th anniversary with The Inner Circle of Advocates. The group only admitted male members until 1990, when she became the first female member. She was also among the youngest to be invited. Members of the Inner Circle are close-knit professional colleagues that often function as a collective law firm sharing experience, knowledge, and skill, despite being spread across the country. An Inner Circle Member must have at least three verdicts of one million dollars or a recent verdict in excess of ten million dollars.
Some of Ms. Livingston’s landmark verdicts include:
- $31 million – New York state’s largest medical malpractice/wrongful death verdict in 2018 on behalf of the family of a 70-year old woman who died as a result of an incorrect heart procedure.
- $13 million – on behalf of the family of a 43-year old New Jersey woman who died as a result of a bowel perforation caused during an operation to remove a benign polyp.
- $7 million – awarded to a family of a woman who died of pancreatitis when her doctors incorrectly believed that she had ovarian cancer.
Ms. Livingston specializes in medical malpractice and personal injury cases. Among her many honors, she has been called “A Legal Legend” by Law Dragon and named one of “The 50 most influential women lawyers in America” by New York magazine.
