Epstein Becker Green Attorney Michelle Capezza Receives Excellence in Achievement Award from Peter W. Rodino, Jr., Society

EW YORK (Oct. 1, 2012) — Michelle Capezza, an attorney with Epstein Becker Green, is being recognized with the Excellence in Achievement Award from the Peter W. Rodino, Jr. Society at Seton Hall School of Law for her commitment to excellence and compassionate service in the field of law. The award ceremony will be held at the Society's annual banquet on October 17, 2012, in Newark, New Jersey.

The award is conferred annually to an attorney of Italian-American heritage who exemplifies the values of Congressman Peter W. Rodino, Jr.: compassion, wisdom, and honor. Congressman Rodino was known for his sponsorship of legislation that made Columbus Day a national holiday and for acting as the "fair moderator" of the partisan impeachment hearings of President Nixon. He was widely respected by people in the local, regional, and national communities and his legacy will endure forever.

"I am honored to be this year's recipient of the Peter W. Rodino, Jr. Society Excellence in Achievement Award. Congressman Rodino was a true role model as he carried out his responsibilities with dignity, integrity, compassion, wisdom, and fairness. I am humbled by this award, encouraged, and reminded to rise to the challenges that present themselves with the same qualities in mind and fervor to do what is right," said Capezza, a Member of the Firm in the Employee Benefits and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, in the New York office.

Capezza practices law in the areas of ERISA, employee benefits, and executive compensation and has more than 15 years of experience representing a range of clients, from Fortune 500 companies and multinational corporations to medium-sized businesses and individual executives, in these matters. In 2011, Capezza was named a "Rising Star" by New York Super Lawyers - Metro Edition, and in 2009, she was named a "Rising Star" by New Jersey Super Lawyers magazine for her work in Employee Benefits/ERISA. Capezza has also been recognized in Marquis Who's Who in America, American Law, and Emerging Leaders.
