Shareholder

Gina is a shareholder in Capehart’s Litigation Group and is the Editor of the firm’s quarterly litigation newsletter, “Legally Speaking.” In addition to being the firm’s PIP expert, Ms. Zippilli focuses her practice in civil litigation matters involving UM/UIM litigation and bad faith; tort defense; products, premises and professional liability in both New Jersey, Philadelphia and the federal courts.  Her client base is mainly devoted to insurance companies and national corporations. She has extensive experience in the area of legal malpractice, having specialized in that field for several years, as well as complex commercial litigation. For her business clients, Ms. Zippilli prepares corporate and transactional documents and assists those clients in creating and obtaining trademarks best suited for their businesses.

In 2015, Gina was selected as a recipient of the New Jersey Law Journal’s New Leaders of the Bar award. The New Jersey Law Journal presents the prestigious New Leaders of the Bar award on an annual basis to a select group of New Jersey attorneys under the age of 40. Criteria for the selection of these rising stars include demonstrated leadership qualities, expertise in litigation, charitable volunteer work and other factors that exemplify the ways that these attorneys stand out among their peers. A seven-judge panel reviews all nominations from the State and narrows their list down to reflect only those attorneys that exhibited the qualities and experience that make each of them a 2015 New Leader.

Every year since 2014, Gina has been voted a “Top Attorney” by the SJ Magazine. Additionally, in 2017, she was selected to New Jersey Rising Stars. Only two and a half percent of attorneys under the age of 40, or in practice for 10 years or less, are selected to Rising Stars.
