Roger B. Linden
Roger returned to Potsdam upon graduating from Albany Law School and began working at the Law Firm of Ingram & Ingram where he had interned as a SUNY Potsdam student. At that time, Francis Cappello was also an Associate Attorney at the Ingram firm. Both of the young Associate Attorneys became partners and the firm then became known as Ingram, Ingram, Cappello, & Linden. In 1991, Francis and Roger opened Cappello & Linden and for the past 25+ years have continued to provide quality legal services to the people of the North Country.
Roger has continually supported his alma mater, SUNY Potsdam. Over the years, he has had various roles with its alumni organizations, and has been a long standing member of the College Council and College Foundation. Roger has afforded many students the same opportunity which he experienced as a student by hosting a number of interns throughout his years of professional practice. He continues to support the students of the university by providing student legal-aid services and, when needed, by providing legal advice to the Student Government Association.
