Firm Mourns Passing of Founding Partner

  • Download PDF
Edwin KunzmanOur firm is saddened by the passing of our founding partner, Edwin D. Kunzman, on May 1, 2020 at the age of 93 at his home in Florida. Ed grew up in Plainfield, New Jersey and graduated from Plainfield High School, then Rutgers University, after which he served in the U.S. Navy. He received his law degree from Columbia Law School in 1952, then joined his father, Irving, and his uncle, Ira, in their Plainfield law practice.

Ed was involved in local community organizations and commenced service to the City of Plainfield in 1958 when he was elected councilman from the Third Ward. He continued serving the City in various roles on the Council and was appointed Magistrate of the Plainfield Municipal Court in 1965, where he sat for four years – a particularly volatile time for the City.

Ed’s practice in the 1960s was a general practice with a focus on real estate, real estate development and representation of local zoning and planning boards. He was instrumental in initiating the expansion of the firm, including the addition of an insurance defense department in the 1970s. These areas remain the essential framework of the firm today.

Ed served as managing partner as the firm grew and moved to its current location in Warren, Somerset County. He was a highly respected member of the New Jersey Bar and known to be kind, fair and compassionate, with a dry sense of humor.

Ed’s vision and leadership paved the way for the firm to grow to its current level of 60 employees, including 35 attorneys in 4 offices throughout the State of New Jersey. Ed’s passion for family has continued as the firm’s primary mission in both its relationship with its employees and clients.

His wife Joyce, his high school sweetheart, predeceased him in 2013. He is survived by his daughter Bonnie Shapiro of Chadds Ford, PA; his son, firm partner, Steven Kunzman; seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
