Denlea & Carton’s Summer Newsletter

Summer 2020

What a crazy year it’s been ! COVID, hurricanes, long overdue discussions about racial injustice, and a presidential election that’s still three months away. It would be understandable if you’re emotionally (and intellectually) exhausted. With that in mind, we thought we’d share a few “lighter” announcements with you before the summer ends, as who knows what awaits us in the Fall. Happy reading, and thanks for being a friend.

A Warm Welcome to Joe Licare and Craig Cepler

Joseph is an experienced litigator who joins the firm’s business litigation practice. He graduated from Bucknell, and received his MBA from Iona College, and his law degree from St. John’s University School of Law. He was a Senior Court Attorney for the Honorable Alan D. Scheinkman of the Supreme Court, Ninth Judicial District, and most recently practiced in Manhattan with Hogan Lovells US LLP. Joseph lives in Harrison with his wife, a nurse, and their three children.

Craig Cepler has also joined the firm’s litigation practice. He is a graduate of Cornell University and NYU Law School, and began his career at Kaye Scholer. He was a federal clerk for the Hon. Warren Eginton (in the District of Connecticut), and for the Hon. Vincent Briccetti (in the Southern District of New York), before returning to private practice. He lives in White Plains with his wife, a high school teacher, and their three daughters.

Baby Wallace Arrives!

Congratulations to Amber, Kevin and big sister Annabelle, on the arrival of Evelyn Violet Wallace (or “Evie”) on July 21st. Baby Evie checked in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 21.5 inches long, with a full head of black hair. Everyone is healthy and doing great!

Community Involvement

2020 Westchester Corporate Cup

The Firm is a proud sponsor of the 2020 Westchester Corporate Cup 5K Summer Race, benefitting HOPE Community Services. HOPE, based in New Rochelle, provides vital services throughout Westchester County to families in need. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this important event, especially during these difficult times,” remarked partner Jeff Carton. “Now, more than ever, meeting the needs of those less fortunate in our community is critical.” To learn more about the HOPE Community services, or how to donate, click the link below.

Volunteer New York’s Spirit Awards

The Firm was pleased to support Volunteer New York’s annual Spirits Awards. These awards, given for various volunteerism in Westchester County and the surrounding communities, include recognition in education and literacy, youth leadership, social advocacy, and quality of life. For 70 years, Volunteer New York has been a leading, one-stop resource to increase volunteerism in Westchester.

We hope you enjoy the waning days of summer.

Stay well, and healthy !
