We are deeply saddened to share that Peter S. Falvo, Jr., a Shareholder Emeritus of Ansell.Law and the former Chair of the Firm’s Land Use & Zoning Law Department, passed away on December 18, 2023.
Peter was a loyal friend and colleague whose legal career spanned more than 50 years. He joined Ansell.Law in 2001 after founding and growing his own law firm. Peter made an immediate positive impact at Ansell.Law. He added depth and expertise to our Commercial Real Estate, Land Use & Zoning Law, Residential Real Estate, and Wills, Trusts & Estates Departments and brought in many distinguished clients, many of whom we continue to serve.
“Peter was the consummate dapper gentleman with inimitable style and wit. Despite his many accomplishments, Peter was unassuming and humble all while handling significant and complex legal matters,” said President and Managing Shareholder Michael V. Benedetto. “I’m honored to have had the opportunity to call him my partner and friend. He will always be loved and missed by everyone at Ansell.Law, past and present.”
Peter’s practice and talents were multi-faceted. In addition to being a skilled counselor, he was instrumental in the growth of our Land Use Department and unofficially known as the “Dean of Land Use” in Central New Jersey. He was an important part of our culture and never failed to bring humor to every interaction he had.
Peter was also active in his community, serving on the boards of many professional and charitable organizations.
We will miss Peter and his many contributions to the Firm. As a mentor to a generation of Ansell.Law attorneys, his skills and influence will live on at the Firm for decades to come. On behalf of the entire Ansell Grimm & Aaron family, we extend our sincere condolences to Peter’s wife of almost 60 years, Chris, and their entire family.
