Noteworthy: The Pittsburgh chapter of The Kosciuszko Foundation named Federowicz the 2014 Outstanding Polonian. Federowicz helped found the organization's Pittsburgh chapter in the 1980s when he came to Pittsburgh to attend law school at Duquesne University.

Age: 61

Residence: Shaler

Family: Married to Marty; children Liz, Peter and Marie

Occupation: Lawyer and shareholder in the Downtown firm Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C.

Education: Federowicz earned a bachelor's degree in international relations and history from Lehigh University in 1974, and a law degree from Duquesne University in 1977. The first person in his family to attend college, Federowicz said he got involved in the Kosciuszko Foundation because of its emphasis on education.
