Member Spotlight

Elizabeth Kaveny

Managing Partner // Kaveny + Kroll

Please provide a description of your practice.

Plaintiff’s personal injury, with an emphasis on medical negligence actions. I’ve also developed niches in police misconduct and suicide cases and am handling my first MDL as the plaintiff’s liaison counsel in the Infant Formula litigation.

Why are you a member of the WBAI?

I have been a member for 30 years. Over the years, I have met the women I hold in esteem, my mentors, my colleagues and opponents and my best friends. To me, its been about developing relationships. I’ve served on committees, been on the Board and enjoyed the Nominating Committee to slate new officers.

What do you think is the best way to empower women in law?

Two words: Respect and Mentor.

What are you most looking forward to in the following year, personally/professionally?

I am taking my 4 children on an Alaskan cruise to celebrate one graduation from Notre Dame, one heading abroad and two turning Sweet Sixteen. It’s been on my list too long.

Tell us something interesting about you.

On one hand, I have over 200 books that I’ve collected from bookstores in London. On the other, I am certified in skydiving and have jumped out of perfectly good airplanes just because.
