WASHINGTON, DC - October 7, 2019
Renée J. Gentry is excited to announce the opening of her new firm, The Law Office of
Renée J. Gentry (RJG), focusing exclusively on vaccine injury litigation.
“The launch of The Law Office of Renée J. Gentry, will allow me to offer comprehensive
vaccine litigation services, balancing experience and efficiency, while personally engaging
with clients in every phase of their cases,” said Gentry.
Gentry was featured in the New York Times on June 18, 2019 as a legal expert in the
area of vaccine related injuries. The article, titled “Vaccine Injury Claims Are Few and Far
Between,” discusses the data analysis from the federal initiative, National Vaccine Injury
Compensation Program, a no-fault system begun in 1988 after federal law established it
as the place where claims of harm from vaccines must be filed and evaluated. It currently
covers claims related to 15 childhood vaccines and the seasonal flu shot.
A notable quote from the article includes: “Vaccine injuries are rare,” said Renée Gentry,
a lawyer who has been representing people filing claims of vaccine injuries for nearly 18
years. Still, she said, “they are pharmaceuticals and people can react to them — you can
have a bad reaction to aspirin. They’re not magic.”
Gentry is also the Co-Director of the Vaccine Injury Litigation Clinic at The George Washington University Law School where she supervises a team of student-attorneys certified to practice in the US Court of Federal Claims, representing vaccine-injured children and adults in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.
Ms. Gentry has obtained millions of dollars of compensation for clients in a wide variety of vaccine injury cases.
“By launching this new firm I will be better able to leverage my individual personal expertise to provide greater services to my clients,” said Gentry.
