Edward Capozzi has been installed as the 59th president of the New Jersey Association for Justice for the 2020-2021 term.
Capozzi chairs the personal injury practice at Brach Eichler LLC in Roseland, and exclusively handles auto, trucking, New Jersey Transit, products liability, and other catastrophic personal injury cases, and is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a civil trial attorney.
He has successfully represented seriously injured clients in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, Vermont, Florida, Massachusetts, Virginia and Delaware.
According to NJAJ, Capozzi is known for his fierce cross-examination of medical witnesses and artistic presentations of his cases. He lectures across the nation on trial techniques and the concept of proximate cause, which is an event related to an injury sufficiently enough that the courts deem the event to be the cause of that injury.
He is also the author of “The Domino Theory,” a Trial Guides publication in which he explains proximate cause and shows other attorneys how to successfully present to a jury.
The NJAJ, which was founded nearly 80 years ago, is a statewide association of more than 2,700 members in private practice and public service, paralegals, law clerks, law students and law school graduates not yet admitted to the bar.
