Lidia Szczepanowski, Esq. is a practicing attorney who was nominated as “Best Lawyer" in the well-known "Best of Long Island" competition hosted by the Long Island Press in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015. As a general practice litigation attorney for over 28 years, Lidia has spoken to hundreds of individuals about their legal issues. She has represented clients in a wide range of cases, from inception up through trial, in the areas of corporate and commercial litigation, real estate, bankruptcy, and appellate law, just to name a few. As counsel for corporate executives, professionals, and individuals, Lidia works diligently to find creative solutions to complex challenges in order to accomplish the client’s objectives while optimizing the results. In addition to bringing success to her clients, she always does her best to maintain open communication with her clients while holding herself to the highest standards of integrity, competence and excellence.
Lidia attended Hofstra University where she received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in International Business in 1987. Thereafter she attended St. John's University School of Law. During law school, Lidia interned with Judge Arthur D. Spatt in the Appellate Division for the State of New York, Second Department and in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Lidia received her Juris Doctorate in June 1990. Soon after graduating, Lidia became a partner in a successful general practice law firm on Long Island where she provided legal counsel predominately in the areas of corporate and commercial litigation. Lidia currently maintains an “of counsel” relationship with several law firms and has appeared on numerous television and radio shows as a legal correspondent.
In 2012 and 2015, Lidia was selected by the Long Island Business News as one of Long Island’s Top 50 Most Influential Women in Business. She also volunteers her time as legal counsel for several charities including the New York Veteran Police Association and Yes We Care. Lidia exemplifies the real-life embodiment of the words “success, independence, entrepreneurship and glamour”. But most importantly, despite her extraordinarily busy schedule, she is most passionate about “giving back” through proactive “hands-on” participation in philanthropy and philanthropic activities.
Philanthropy and playing an active role in the improvement of the human condition have long been Lidia’s most consuming motivations. In 2007, she founded the National Organization for Women’s Safety Awareness (NOWSA), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit which helps prevent violence against women and teens, and raises awareness about sexual assault and other forms of violence.
Lidia volunteers and appears regularly as a legal correspondent, personal safety expert and entrepreneurial consultant in numerous media outlets and has been invited as a keynote speaker for educational institutions and other organizations such as St. John’s University School of Law, St. John’s University, Molloy College, National Association of Women Business Owners, Suffolk County Women’s Business Enterprise Coalition, and the Nassau Suffolk Dental Societies, to name a few. For several years, Lidia has been invited as a panel speaker by the St. John’s School of Law, Multilingual Legal Advocates, a student organization that pairs up multilingual law students with volunteer opportunities, at their annual event entitled "Marketing Your Multilingualism." Lidia has also volunteered her time as an evaluator at the Supreme Court, Queens County, for the 2016 New York Regional Round of the National Trial Competition (NTC).
Lidia is also a volunteer, event host and Director of Marketing for the New York Boutique Lawyers Networking Group (NYBLNG). Lidia has been instrumental in helping to create, develop, and implement many successful events and establish a presence on many social media platforms.
In addition to her winning record as a lawyer, black belt in karate, women’s lifestyle and personal safety expert, and businesswoman, Lidia has also managed to incorporate some glamour into her life. She holds the titles of Mrs. New York America 2006, Mrs. New York International 2009, Mrs. Corporate America 2013 and in May 2017, she won the international title of Ms. World Elite. Although Lidia’s pageant platform is women’s safety awareness, she has also promoted the ideology that there are no limits to what women in our country can achieve and she encourages women to celebrate their achievements, accomplishments and contributions to their families, careers, and communities. Her mission continues to be to inspire and challenge women to always try new things, never settle for the ordinary and experience life to the fullest.
Lidia is also the owner of Everything Lidia, Inc., an award winning multi-platform luxe lifestyle enterprise that is devoted to providing practical and thought-provoking information, insights and ideas through seminars, speaking engagements, social and other media offerings and products which encourage women to live even more successful, passionate, fulfilling, confident, safe, and glamorous lives!
In April, 2015, Everything Lidia, Inc. and Lidia, as its President and CEO, were awarded a prestigious Folio Award for being “Best Corporate Communicator” by the Fair Media Council.
Today, Lidia continues to spend countless hours volunteering her time with numerous charities and she is also using her growing celebrity status, extensive legal background, vast business and leadership skills, practical marketing and public relations knowledge, and unique insights to make a positive difference in the lives of women by sharing information about “Getting, Having & Enjoying It All”. As a Modern Day Renaissance Woman, Lidia educates and motivates women to realize their true self-worth and reach their maximum achievement potential while enjoying the ride and attaining genuine happiness.
