June 27, 2012

Peter J. Carton, a Director in the Real Property & Environmental Department of Gibbons P.C., was honored at the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) Health Group’s Centennial Gala Celebration on June 23, 2012, at the Chapel Beach Club in Sea Bright, New Jersey.

Mr. Carton’s recognition reflects his extensive, longstanding ties to the VNA Health Group, as well as those of his family. In addition to Mr. Carton serving for many years as legal counsel to various VNA entities, Mr. Carton’s mother was a former chair of VNA Health Group, and the Carton family has long supported the organization and its mission to provide safety-net, community-based healthcare to those in need, including more than 120,000 people each year.

Says Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons, “This well-deserved honor highlights two of the most important qualities Pete displays in his career and personal life, qualities that every Gibbons attorney strives to emulate: a commitment to community outreach, and a dedication to clients that goes above and beyond expectations.”

At Gibbons, Mr. Carton is a member of the Healthcare Practice, providing services across the full healthcare spectrum. He also concentrates in the areas of real estate development and public finance, and he has extensive experience involving governmental entities. He has been included in the most recent edition of Best Lawyers®, in the “Real Estate” category.

The Centennial Gala Celebration, co-chaired by former Governors Brendan T. Byrne and Thomas H. Kean, Sr., along with author and New Jersey resident Mary Higgins Clark, marked the 100th anniversary of the founding of the VNA Health Group, a family of New Jersey’s leading home health, hospice, and community-based providers. These include the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Visiting Nurses, Cape Visiting Nurse Association, Visiting Nurse and Hospice Services, and Essex Valley Visiting Nurse Association.
