Gina M. Zippilli


Ms. Zippilli is a shareholder in Capehart Scatchard’s Litigation Group. In addition to being the firm’s PIP expert, Ms. Zippilli focuses her practice in civil litigation matters involving tort defense.  Her client base is mainly devoted to liability and property insurance carriers with a focus on general liability; automobile; UIM/UM; bad faith claims; and homeowners’ claims.  In light of the new IFCA law that passed in New Jersey in January 2022, a lot of her practice is devoted to defending bad faith claims.

In addition to tort defense, Gina has extensive experience as a complex commercial litigator.

In her earlier years, she prepared corporate and transactional documents and assisted those clients in creating and obtaining trademarks.
