Jan. 16, 2008 For immediate release
Robert J. Incollingo, a Glendora attorney, has been named 2007 Man of the Year by the New Jersey Remodelers Association.
Incollingo was honored Jan. 9 for his work with the Collingswood-based association, whose mission is to protect South Jersey homeowners by holding the 80 contractors and suppliers in the group to strict ethical standards. Through its Operation Good Samaritan, the group even sends contractors out – at no cost to selected homeowners – to fix faulty or unfinished work done by nonmembers.
Incollingo belongs to the association because construction law is one of the primary focuses of his practice, which also encompasses business and real estate litigation.
New Jersey Remodelers Association Executive Director John T. Gasper III cited the large commitment of time Incollingo has donated to the group over the past 10 years, and noted that Incollingo rewrote the rules for the group’s Consumer Arbitration Board, which settles disputes between homeowners and member contractors.
“Bob is always focused on getting us more members and getting the best and newest industry education to our members,” Gasper said. “We appreciate what he does.”
Incollingo said he was “thrilled” to receive the honor, adding that “it’s especially gratifying coming from a group committed to such high standards of fairness and justice.”
A practicing attorney for 26 years, Incollingo is a graduate of Temple University and its school of law. He also attended the construction development and management certificate program at the University of California, Irvine, and completed the construction management certificate course at Camden County Community College.
Incollingo is co-vice chair of the New Jersey State Bar Association Construction Law Section and a member of the Burlington County and Camden County bar associations and the unified State Bar of California. He serves as a commercial arbitrator by appointment of the Superior Court in Camden and Burlington counties.
Incollingo is also a founding member of, and counsel to, the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Roof Consultants Institute, and a member of the Builders League of South Jersey and its parent group, the National Association of Home Builders.
He is a frequent speaker at professional conferences on construction topics and is a contributing author of “Residential Construction & Renovation: A Legal Guide for New Jersey Homeowners,” published by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation.
