Partner Ravi Bhalla Departs FPSF to Transition to Hoboken City Hall as Mayor

We would like to congratulate our Partner and friend Ravinder S. Bhalla who is leaving the firm Friday, December 29th to assume his full-time position as Mayor of the City of Hoboken, New Jersey on Monday, January 1st, 2018.

Ravi made history this past November becoming the first Sikh to be elected to a mayoral position in a municipality in the State of New Jersey. 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.

"Leaving the firm is bittersweet as I will truly miss the partners, associates, staff members and clients who I have worked so closely with at Florio Perrucci Steinhardt & Cappelli over the past four years. I am so grateful to have been part of such a remarkable team," said Ravi.
