Messer Caparello, P.A., is pleased to announce that Gigi Rollini, a shareholder and attorney practicing in its full-service Tallahassee firm, has been named a 2015 “Super Lawyer” in appellate law by Super Lawyers magazine.
Ms. Rollini is a member of Messer Caparello’s Litigation & Appellate Team. Her practice focuses on Florida appellate law, general civil and administrative litigation and litigation support, and all aspects of administrative law, including licensing and regulatory matters, insurance, health and energy law. Super Lawyers names less than 5% of Florida’s attorneys to its list each year. They are chosen through a competitive selection process that includes peer nominations and evaluations, as well as independent research into a candidate’s professional achievement, credentials, competence, experience, professional activity, pro bono work, honors, and other recognitions.
In addition to being named a “Super Lawyer,” Ms. Rollini is AV-Rated by Martindale—the highest peer rating available—in both appellate and administrative law.
Ms. Rollini also serves as incoming board president of America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend, a regional food bank that serves 11 counties and 130 partner agencies in North Florida. She is a member of the 2014 Class of Tallahassee’s “25 Women to Know,” and serves on the Club 25 board as well.
Ms. Rollini is a triple Seminole, having received from the Florida State University her J.D., magna cum laude, in 2003; her M.P.A. from the Reubin O’D. Askew School of Public Administration and Policy in 2003; and her B.A. in 1997. She is a lifetime member of the FSU Alumni Association.
Messer Caparello, P.A., is pleased to announce that Gigi Rollini, a shareholder and attorney practicing in its full-service Tallahassee firm, has been recognized by the Florida Association of Women Lawyers (FAWL) as one of Florida’s “Extraordinary Women.” FAWL noted in its selection that Rollini is “unquestionably . . . at the top” of her profession. Gigi is an AV-Rated “Super Lawyer” in appellate and administrative law, who has been recognized as one of Florida’s Top 40 Litigators Under 40, Florida’s Most Productive Young Lawyer, a FAWL Leader in the Law, and one of Tallahassee’s 2014 “25 Women You Need to Know.” Rollini serves on the Executive Board of America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend, and as a pro bono lawyer to Legal Services of North Florida on cases with access to court implications. Gigi also represents adults with developmental disabilities in Florida cases of statewide impact.
Attorney Gigi Rollini’s professional success and leadership in her field reflect a basic belief that the individual matters.
“I think individually we each have the power to effect change,” she says. Rollini has seen that proven in her association work and civic activities. Furthermore, when women who share that culture, passion and energy get together, the achievements are multiplied.
