Rayna Kessler, an attorney at Robins Kaplan LLP, was recently named a “Top Woman in Law” by the New Jersey Law Journal. Twenty-five women were chosen for the 2016 recognition, each selected by the journal’s editorial staff either for their notable achievements in recent years or for their outstanding overall contributions to the legal profession.
A member of the firm’s Mass Tort and Personal Injury practice groups, Rayna represents individuals who have been injured by dangerous drugs and medical devices, medical malpractice, and other catastrophic injuries. Her recent achievements include appointments to leadership roles in New Jersey state and federal litigations concerning severe intestinal problems suffered by users of the blood pressure medication Benicar.
A frequent speaker, Rayna is invited to lecture and serve on panels regarding pharmaceutical cases for several organizations, including the Mass Tort Med School’s annual medical seminar, New Jersey Association for Justice, Mass Torts Made Perfect, HarrisMartin, and the American Association for Justice.
Rayna and her fellow recipients of the Top Women in Law recognition will be honored at the awards dinner on November 15, 2016, at the Manhattan Penthouse in New York City.
