Expert Witness Profile

Gregory D. Saputelli, University of Pennsylvania (BA - 1965) & Penn State Dickinson School of Law (JD – 1968), limits his practice to providing expert witness services in legal malpractice cases. He has been actively admitted in NJ since 1969 & was admitted in PA from 1979 through 2019. He managed the NJ office of a mid-sized Philadelphia-based regional law firm for more than 30 years before moving briefly to a smaller NJ law firm in 2016 as the head of its litigation department. He left that firm in May 2018 to focus on his work as a legal malpractice expert. Between 1987 & 2019, when he retired from active practice, he was continuously designated by the NJ Supreme Court as a "Certified Civil Trial Attorney," a designation carried by fewer than 2% of all active NJ lawyers.

In June 2017 Rutgers Law School awarded him an "Excellence in Teaching Award In Recognition of Five Years of Excellence In Teaching Trial Advocacy." For many years, he was recognized annually as a "Super Lawyer" in New Jersey Super Lawyers Magazine. His civil litigation experience as a practicing attorney, spanned diverse areas of the law, such as, professional liability and malpractice law claims against lawyers, physicians, nurses, accountants and engineers, healthcare law, insurance law, securities fraud, zoning and land use (including affordable housing mandates), redevelopment law, eminent domain, construction claims and intellectual property law.
