Biography

An outgrowth of his work on behalf of professional liability insurance carriers, Irwin Kramer has devoted a significant portion of his practice to the defense of his fellow attorneys in professional malpractice and disciplinary matters.

Appointed to the Court of Appeals Standing Committee on Rules of Practice & Procedure, Mr. Kramer serves on a team of prominent judges, legislators and attorneys which review and revise court rules including those which govern the attorney grievance process.
