PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon Attorney Kristen Gibbons Feden served as the keynote speaker at the Victim Rights Law Center’s 2018 Shining Star Gala on Sept. 27 in Boston. Feden, the special prosecutor in Bill Cosby’s sexual assault re-trial and recent conviction, also received the leadership award. All proceeds go toward advancing the mission of VRLC:  to provide free, comprehensive legal services for survivors of sexual violence to help them rebuild their lives, and promote a national movement committed to seeking justice for each and every rape and sexual assault victim.

Feden concentrates her practice on complex commercial and class-action litigation and white-collar defense. Prior to joining Stradley Ronon, she was Assistant District Attorney in the Trials Division of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, where she served as captain of the Elder Abuse Unit and the Domestic Violence Unit, and as a member of the Sex Crimes Unit. During her tenure in the District Attorney’s Office, Feden investigated and prosecuted all types of criminal cases, including cases of abuse, neglect, rape, sexual violence, internet crimes against children, financial exploitation against elders and homicides. Her most notable case was Commonwealth v. William H. Cosby, where she played a critical role in the first trial, which resulted in a hung jury, and the second trial where a conviction was attained.
