Summary:A National Law Journal article featured Kramer Dillof as one of the "Twenty-Five go-to teams for when the going gets tough."

"The husband-and-wife team of Tom Moore and Judy Livingston lead the 12-lawyer New York firm Kramer, Dillof, Livingston & Moore," the article began, which went on to praise the two attorneys for winning "more than 100 verdicts in excess of $1 million."
In three highlighted cases:
  • Tom Moore won $56 million from a New York jury in 2002 for "a girl stricken with cerebral palsy as a result of an infection that set in after a procedure to install a shunt to drain fluid from her brain." The doctors failed to see that she had developed an infection.
  • In 2002 a Brooklyn jury awarded $6.75 million to a girl whose father died after "waiting more than 12 hours for emergency cardiac care." The ruptured aorta he had suffered killed him on his way to surgery. Judy Livingston "argued that the hospital staff wasted precious time in arranging the man's transfer to another facility."
  • A Bronx jury in 2001 awarded $107.8 million "to a child whose brain was ravaged by untreated meningitis." Hospital staff "ignored clear signs of the disease, allowing the child to lie untreated in the hospital nursery for three days after birth."
