Presby to Discuss Science and Chemistry Behind the Law
The American Association for Justice (AAJ) has invited attorney Ellen Presby of the nationally recognized Nemeroff Law Firm to speak at the organization’s Plaintiff-Only GranuFlo and Dialysis Products Seminar in New York City on Dec. 12, 2013. The seminar will offer legal developments, industry updates and trial techniques for cases involving the most widely-prescribed dry acid product in the dialysis industry today.
Presby, a trial attorney with Dallas-based Nemeroff Law Firm, was asked to speak during the Medical and Scientific Overview of GranuFlo Cases. The session will provide a generic overview of the process and mechanics of dialysis machines, an understanding of the science and chemistry of GranuFlo and the negative impacts experienced by patients.
“It’s essential for attorneys to understand the science behind these cases,” Presby said. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with this type of litigation.”
With nearly three decades of trial experience, Presby is a sought-after speaker and will also be moderating a portion of the upcoming AAJ 2014 Winter Convention. She holds multiple legal victories against major corporations, including a role in a $1.275 billion pharmaceutical class action settlement, and was recently appointed to the plaintiff’s steering committee for a major multidistrict pharmaceutical litigation. She specializes in personal injury and product liability cases and stands at the cutting edge of pharmaceutical law and trial techniques.
Presby has been listed as one of National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Lawyers from 2007 to 2012, a Texas Super Lawyer every year since 2003 and was named one of the top 50 female lawyers in Texas by Law & Politics Media and Texas Monthly magazine in 2004. She has served as Co- Chair of the State Bar of Texas Grievance Committee, and on the Boards of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the Public Justice Foundation, and the Dallas Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.
