Addressing the audience gathered for the presentation of the award, Charles F. Holmgren, Litigation Department Shareholder, said, “This firm’s founder and the award’s namesake, Blaine Capehart, founded the firm on the core principles he embodied in possessing a diligent work ethic, excellence in legal advocacy and esteemed moral character. This award, then, stewarded by our colleagues at the Rutgers Law School, was presented to Mr. Corma for his work that showed thorough research, exemplary writing and was presented in a easily understood and fluid analysis of a compelling legal issue. His scholarship certainly represents the excellence Mr. Capehart exhibited throughout his long legal career, and this award allows us to honor Mr. Corma as he begins his own.”
