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.
