About me

A skilled and respected insurance defense litigator, Rob Cappuzzo plays an active role as a member of the Forthright Advisory Council for No-Fault Disputes in the State of New Jersey. In that capacity, Rob is involved in revising arbitration rules and the selection and review of dispute resolution professionals who preside over no-fault personal injury protection (PIP). As a litigator in the PIP arbitration arena, Rob has nearly double the industry average in no-cause arbitration wins to his credit. As chair to Chasan Leyner & Lamparello’s PIP Department, Rob concentrates his practice on insurance defense, liability and coverage matters. His impressive client list includes Allstate, New Jersey Manufacturers, State Farm, MetLife and Encompass Insurance companies. Rob regularly shares his wealth of legal insight — garnered from more than 15 years of practice specializing in the defense of PIP actions—with clients, through in-house training sessions focusing on claim handling and defense strategies. He is also a lecturer for the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education, the New Jersey Defense Association, the Insurance Council of New Jersey and the New Jersey State Bar Association. As a lecturer, Rob has been called upon to educate his peers in all areas of PIP defense practice.

    I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Rob Cappuzzo for the past 8 years. I also served with him on the NAF/ Forthright Advisory Council from 2008 - 2013. Although we were and are on opposite sides of many issues Rob is always fair. Although he is a vigorous defender of his position he is always a pleasure to deal with. Whether it be arguing a case or dealing with multiple and different personalities on the Advisory Council, Rob shows that being an attorney is more then just knowing the law. it's also about getting things done the right way.

In that time, he has consistently proven himself to be a consummate professional, and is widely recognized for his uncanny talent in defending his clients. In short, his name is synonymous with excellence in this line of work, and his skill places him beyond the petty strategies utilized by many of his competitors.
