Edward P. Capozzi, Member

973.364.5204 · 973.618.5543 Fax · ecapozzi@bracheichler.com

One of New Jersey’s most renowned and dynamic personal injury attorneys, Edward P. Capozzi exclusively handles auto, trucking, NJ Transit, products liability, and other catastrophic personal injury cases. He has successfully represented seriously injured clients in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan, West Virginia, Florida, Massachusetts, Virginia, and Delaware. Edward is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a civil trial attorney. The New Jersey Supreme Court has designated this honor to attorneys who are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge, and skill in civil trial practice.

Known for his fierce cross-examination of medical witnesses and artistic presentations of his cases, Edward lectures across the country on trial techniques and the concept of proximate cause.

Edward is the author of The Domino Theory, a Trial Guides publication in which he explains proximate cause and shows other attorneys how to successfully present any case to a jury. In his popular YouTube video, “Capozzi Causation Dominos,” Edward demonstrates, step-by-step, how to set up each element from discovery to settlement to opening statement to arguing damages in closing – when you knock down your dominos and demonstrate the inevitable logic of your case.

Edward is an active participant, advocate, and educator in the field of law. He is a published author and lectures nationally on trial techniques and cross-examination of defense medical experts. In 2014, Edward received the New Jersey Law Journal’s Personal Injury Hall of Fame Award for receiving the largest verdict in the state in a products liability case and from 2012-2018 received at least one, and as many as three, of the state’s top 20 verdicts or settlements. He is recognized by the New Jersey Law Journal as having the top personal injury settlement in an auto case for 2017. Edward is the recipient of numerous other honors and awards, including the following:
