FPSF Congratulates Partner Ravi Bhalla on Historic Mayoral Victory

Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Fader would like to congratulate our Partner Ravi Bhalla on his historic victory, becoming the first Sikh to be elected mayor to a municipality in the State of New Jersey in his hometown of Hoboken. 

Ravi has been serving as a councilman-at-large of the one-square-mile-city since 2009. An Indian-American born and raised in New Jersey, Ravi was endorsed this past June by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer who decided not to seek re-election to a third term.

He ran a very successful campaign and came out victorious in a six-person race where he faced challenges from fellow council members, a Hudson County Freeholder, and others. According to published reports, Ravi received 34 percent of the vote from his fellow Hoboken citizens.

“The FPSF team is proud of our colleague, Ravi Bhalla. We value public service and many of our attorneys have served at the highest level of State government and local offices such as Freeholder, Mayor, Councilperson, School Board Trustee and other positions within their communities.  Mayor Elect Bhalla epitomizes the high standards of integrity, intellect and intensity necessary to take his community to the next level,” said Governor James Florio, FPSF Founding Partner.

Ravi is an experienced federal and state court litigator in the areas of local government law, employment law, complex civil litigation, and criminal defense law. Ravi also serves as Chair of the Firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and is a recognized leader in diversity and social justice issues both in New Jersey and nationwide.
