NEW YORK, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, one of the nation's leading plaintiff law firms, announced today the election of Dr. Susan Friery as a partner. Dr. Friery, previously an associate in the firm's New York and Boston offices, is a Columbia University-trained medical doctor. She joined the firm in 1987 as a medical consultant, and focuses on general tort, medical malpractice, product liability and aviation litigation.
Dr. Friery is one of only an estimated 2,500 medical doctor/attorneys in the nation, of which less than 100 are representing the rights of victims and their families at plaintiff law firms. Over the last 17 years Dr. Friery has brought her combined legal and medical expertise and skills to bear on hundreds of death and injury cases handled by Kreindler, the nation's preeminent aviation law firm.
"Susan is an extraordinary attorney with a perspective few can boast," said firm partner James P. Kreindler. "She understands the intricacies of our nation's complex healthcare system, is an expert at analyzing victims' injuries and causes of death, and recognizes how to assess the types and cost of care injured parties will face in their lifetimes. Susan is a terrific asset to the firm and we're pleased to welcome her into our partnership."
Dr. Friery works on dozens of the firm's cases at any one time, and screens hundreds of other inquiries from prospective clients the firm receives each year. "Many of our clients do not have substantial financial means," said Dr. Friery. "They suffer lifelong, catastrophic injury and face costly medical challenges resulting from the negligence of others. I'm particularly concerned with determining what kind of medical care they will need for the rest of their lives, and ensuring a medically-safe living environment for them. Unfortunately, it is too easy to get lost in the healthcare system, or to be compensated only for short-term needs without the long-term vision of the medical necessities and pain and suffering victims often face. We strive to ensure that doesn't happen to our clients."
Dr. Friery plays a substantial role in the injury, death and medical negligence cases of the firm. She coordinates and determines how to prove liability and damages in all of the cases, including those claiming failure to properly diagnose, surgical errors and other active commissions of malpractice by doctors, nurses and hospitals.
As one of the trial attorneys on Ruby v. Budget Rent a Car (2005), Dr. Friery helped Kreindler secure more than $20 million for its client, then the highest-ever New York State verdict in a personal injury case. Recently, she served as one of the two trial attorneys on Reis v. Volvo, a product liability case that resulted in a $8.75 million verdict for a then 56-year-old man who suffered an above-the-knee amputation when struck by a 1978 Volvo 340 that did not contain a clutch safety starter switch.
Dr. Friery received her medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in 1988, where she graduated in the top one percent of her class. She has special training and experience in forensic pathology and has worked at numerous New York hospitals as well as at the New York City Medical Examiner's Office. She has served as an advisor and worked for the American Red Cross, the National Kidney Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and the National Disaster Medical Response Teams.
In January 2010, Dr. Friery will deliver an address in the medical malpractice/brain trauma section at the American Association for Justice (AAJ) convention in Maui, Hawaii.
A graduate of New York Law School (1993), Dr. Friery is admitted to the bars of Massachusetts and Washington, DC, and the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts. She has also been admitted pro hoc vice in numerous state and federal courts throughout the United States.
Dr. Friery is the American Bar Association Mass Torts Sub-Committee co-chair on Pharmaceutical and Medical Device torts and is a member of the Board of Governors of the Mass Academy of Trial Attorneys. In 2009 she participated in the AAJ's Lobby Day on the Health Care bill as a member of the AAJ medical doctor/attorney lobbying team. She frequently lectures about medical-legal issues for several state and national trial lawyer organizations and at medical conventions and hospital training programs regarding patient advocacy and legal-medical ramifications of patient care.
Dr. Friery works in Kreindler's New York, Boston and Los Angeles offices and resides near Boston, MA. For more than a decade, Dr. Friery was a principal dancer and soloist with the Empire State Ballet Theater and a guest soloist for the Canadian National Ballet and the American Ballet Theater.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
