Profile

Gregory D. Saputelli is admitted to practice law in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He managed the New Jersey office of a mid-sized Philadelphia-based regional law firm for approximately 30 years before moving briefly to a smaller law firm in 2016 as the head of its litigation department, from which latter firm he departed in 2018 in order to focus solely on his work as a legal malpractice expert. Since 1987 he has been continuously designated by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a "Certified Civil Trial Attorney", a designation carried by fewer than 2% of all active New Jersey lawyers. On May 2, 2017, the New Jersey Supreme Court re-certified him for an additional five-year period. He also serves as an Adjunct Professor of law at Rutgers Law School, and in June 2017 the Law School awarded him an "Excellence in Teaching Award In Recognition of Five Years of Excellence In Teaching Trial Advocacy". Since 2005 he has been regularly recognized locally and nationally as a "Super Lawyer" in New Jersey Super Lawyers Magazine, including in 2017. He was named as a Southern New Jersey “Top Attorney” by SJ Magazine in August 2017. He has served as a judge at the National Mock Trial Competitions conducted at the law schools of both Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania. He has civil litigation expertise across a wide spectrum of disputes in diverse areas of the law, involving, for example, representation of companies, businesses, individuals and governmental entities in cases involving healthcare law, insurance law, securities fraud, zoning and land use (including affordable housing mandates), redevelopment law, eminent domain, construction claims and intellectual property law. He has also represented clients in connection with numerous professional liability and malpractice law claims, including, for example, claims against lawyers, physicians, nurses, accountants and engineers.
