Judith A. Livingston has long been one of the most successful plaintiff’s attorneys in the United States. Reserved, methodical and precise, Ms. Livingston has been called “A Legal Legend” by Law Dragon. Since 1989 she has been a partner at the law firm of Kramer, Dillof, Livingston & Moore.
To date, Ms. Livingston has won 33 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 specializes in medical malpractice and personal injury cases. In recognition of her trial skills, Judith Livingston was the first woman in the United States admitted to the Inner Circle of Advocates an invitation-only professional group limited to the top 100 trial lawyers in America. And she was the youngest person to be invited to be a member.
New York magazine also cited her as one of “the 50 most influential women lawyers in America.” And in every listing since Law Dragon began recognizing the top 500 lawyers in the United States, Ms. Livingston has been selected as one of the country’s top lawyers.
In 2014, Ms. Livingston was honored by both Hofstra University and Fordham University. She received the Presidential Medal from Hofstra University and the Fordham Founder’s Award.
The former is awarded to “distinguished persons in recognition of outstanding career achievement and professional leadership.” The latter “recognizes individuals whose personal and professional lives reflect the highest aspirations of the University’s defining traditions, as an institution dedicated to wisdom and learning in the service of others.”
A fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, Judith Livingston has participated nationally in lectures and seminars on subjects ranging from trial strategy to women in the courtroom.
Ms. Livingston sits on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. She is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers; the International Society of Barristers; the Bar Association of the City of New York; the American Association of Justice, and the International Academy of Trial Lawyers.
From 2006 through 2009, Ms. Livingston was co-president of the Judges and Lawyers Breast Cancer Alert. She continues on the JALBCA Board of Directors, helping to educate women in the fight against breast cancer.
