Lenore Kramer is best known for her work in personal injury and medical malpractice litigation, as well as her long-standing leadership positions in state and national law associations. She is a past president of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, the Metropolitan Women’s Bar Association and Bronx County Bar Association.
Kramer has long been at the forefront of women’s legal issues in New York. She has successfully represented numerous women injured by medical malpractice and has also served as a member of the Board of Advisors of the Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Rape Crisis Center.
Kramer is also a staunch advocate for the rights of women and children, winning millions in damages for grieving families when mothers and children have either died or have been seriously injured as a result of medical malpractice. She is also representing two women — pro bono — whose husbands were killed in the World Trade Center attacks, to help them obtain monies under the federal Victims Compensation Fund.
A frequent lecturer and Court TV commentator, Kramer is a member of the Departmental Disciplinary Committee First Department and a Commissioner on the Franklin H. Williams Judicial Commission on Minorities. She also is a member of the Office of Court Administration Advisory Committee on Civil Practice, Committee on Case Management and Task Forces on Professionalism and Conduct. She previously served as a member of the Mayor’s Committee on The Judiciary and as one of only two attorney members of the Office of Court Administration Committee to study the IAS System.
