Ms. Luhana has been recognized by the courts for her commitment to women’s causes. She was a panelist at the 2017 Duke Law Conference Panel for Women and Minorities in Leadership Positions in MDLs and will be involved in drafting MDL Best Practices for federal judges. Ms. Luhana also served as one of only two court-appointed women on the Plaintiff Steering Committee in the In Re: Yasmin and Yaz (Drospirenone) Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation in the Southern District of Illinois. Ms. Luhana further works closely with the firm’s female clients and co-counsel on transvaginal mesh injury cases, including those involving the Bard Avaulta Mesh, Mentor Sling, and the Gynecare Prolift.

Over the course of her career, Ms. Luhana has served on committees in other multi-district litigations (MDLs) involving over-the-counter consumer products and defective pharmaceuticals and medical devices, including the Discovery Committee in the Guidant MDL. She was also extensively involved in the denture cream litigation in federal and state courts and served as the Chair of the Law & Briefing Committee in the federal Denture Cream MDL.

Ms. Luhana has further litigated a number of significant nationwide class actions. For example, she served as class counsel in the In Re: IPO Securities Litigation, which recently settled for $586 million and she was also class counsel in the ETS nationwide litigation which resulted in an $11.1 million settlement for teaching candidates who were inaccurately scored on PPLT tests. She also served as class counsel in a national consumer fraud action against IBM, resulting in a $35 million settlement for purchasers of defective IBM hard drives.

Prior to practicing as a plaintiffs’ trial lawyer, Ms. Luhana gained invaluable experience as a law clerk for the now-retired Judge Marina Corodemus who was the Mass Tort Judge of New Jersey. Judge Corodemus helped shape the way Ms. Luhana practices law by teaching her to be a strong, but fair and balanced voice for victims. While clerking for Judge Corodemus, Ms. Luhana managed thousands of mass tort cases and various class actions. She also worked closely with the judge to develop case management orders and strategies for efficiently and effectively managing and resolving cases.

Ms. Luhana resides with her family in Brooklyn, New York. When Ms. Luhana is not working on cases or with her clients, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters.
