White Plains, NY (October 19, 2022) – Coffey Modica O’Meara Capowski LLP is pleased to announce that Partner Timothy Capowski, head of the firm’s Appellate/Consulting/Monitoring Practice, has been named to the 2022 Irish Legal 100.  Capowski will be among the honorees recognized on October 19, 2022, at a reception held at the residence of the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Geraldine Byrne Nason in Washington, DC.

“Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees,” said Capowski.  “Our grandparents and great-grandparents left Ireland, in many cases, with nothing but stubborn courage and a thin hope for a better life lived with pride.  While some of what they fled remains unresolved, and while our own nation remains imperfect, every one of us is a testament to that hope and that courage, and, we can hope, a vindication of that pride.”

A descendant from the Irish towns of Tipperary and Galway, Capowski has spent 27-plus years at the forefront of the insurance defense bar.  He has been in the trenches for many of the biggest and nastiest claims in the history of the toughest legal market in the world.

A pioneer, Capowski brings his hard-won know-how to bear fighting for defendants everywhere against the coordinated strategic attacks of the plaintiffs’ bar, shaping strategies to identify, evaluate, monitor, mitigate and defend defendants’ risk in catastrophic property and casualty matters of every kind.

In addition to receiving this honor, Capowski has been named to the New York Metro Super Lawyers since 2019.  He also has earned an AV Preeminent Rating by Martindale-Hubbell, the highest peer-review rating in the legal sector, and AIG named him a Top 10 Lawyer in 2012.
