Albin-Riley Recognized Among Daily Journal’s “Top Health Care Attorneys” for 2022
Debra has a reputation as a tenacious health care litigator, and recently argued and prevailed before the California Supreme Court to establish significant anti-SLAPP protections for medical staff in peer review matters.
Of the matter, she said, “Everyone on a hospital's staff has to be free to speak out about substandard patient care without fear of being sued. We have now resurrected protections that were in danger of being lost.”
Debra has served as lead attorney on numerous high-profile matters across the country and her extensive experience allows her to take matters through hearing, trial, or appeal, or skillfully negotiate positive resolutions for her clients. In addition to leadership positions with the firm, she also chairs the Board of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles (LFLA), and previously served as LFLA’s Governance Committee Chair and a member of the Board’s Executive Committee.
Debra has also been recognized by Chambers USA and Legal 500 and was listed as a Lawdragon Magazine “Top 500 Leading Litigation Lawyers.” She is a Senior Fellow, Litigation Counsel of America, and has been named as a “Super Lawyer” by Los Angeles Magazine every year since 2004 and is rated “AV Preeminent” by Martindale Hubbell.
The Daily Journal “Top Health Care Lawyers” list is compiled from hundreds of nominations submitted by lawyers statewide, with the honorees selected by editors based on the impact of their work.
