Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader LLC, a law firm with offices throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, announced it is changing its name and restructuring the firm.
The firm was founded by former New Jersey Gov. James J. Florio and Michael J. Perrucci in 1996 and then added two partners over the years, Douglas J. Steinhart and Paul T. Fader.
As part of the restructuring, Fader will no longer be associated with the firm. The firm's new name, Florio, Perrucci, Steinhardt and Cappelli, will include partner Lou Cappelli, Jr., Camden County Freeholder Director, who joined the firm in 2007.
Cappelli has been practicing law for 30 years and has extensive experience in education, governmental and regulatory affairs, labor, lobbying, real estate, family and personal injury law. He's recognized statewide for his efforts in fighting the opioid addiction crisis, the firm said.
“The firm’s commitment to exceptional legal representation has always been the polestar of its success,” said Florio. “We are pleased and optimistic about the restructuring and believe that it represents the best potential for our continued growth and vitality. We look forward to serving our clients’ ongoing needs in the same powerful and professional manner that they have long been accustomed.”
Florio added, “We wish Paul well in his future endeavors.”
