Spotlight: Milton & Betty Katz JCC

For more than 110 years the Jewish Community Center has been a focal point of the Atlantic County community. We have been a place where families come together, Jewish culture thrives, children are cared for and their futures shaped.  The Atlantic County community has flourished in substantial part as the result of the JCC’s programs and services. While times have changed, the need for the JCC in Atlantic County has not.

Our JCC serves not only our Jewish Community but also the broader Atlantic County community with new and varied programs that reflect both the complexity of the Jewish experience and life in our modern world. Our children benefit in various ways from our Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) and Camp By The Sea. (more…)

Landsman Uniforms & Embroidery

Landsman Uniforms & Embroidery

Landsman Uniforms and Embroidery is excited to share the story of our business – a tale of resilience, passion, and a commitment to serving customers in Atlantic County for three generations.

The family business began in 1932 when William Landsman opened a general department store that evolved eventually into a menswear shop in the 1950s. Max, William’s son, and Cissy Landsman worked in the department store and, in 1962, also opened Landsman Uniforms out of their home. This new business venture was in addition to their job responsibilities at the department store. This entrepreneurial couple also had five children, one of whom now runs the business with her husband Dennis Smith. Janet Smith, Max and Cissy’s daughter, can remember opening packages of uniform shirts for this ‘cottage” industry at the ripe old age of six.

Eventually the uniform business outgrew its cramped quarters and moved into the menswear shop. By the time William Landsman retired (at age 85), the uniform business was thriving in Ventnor. Max and Cissy aimed to build a legacy deeply rooted in the local community, and that is what they did. What started as a small venture has blossomed into a cornerstone of our community. Landsmans Uniforms prides itself on quality products and unmatched service. Professionals from law enforcement and medicine and restaurant and casino employees have been the mainstay of Landsman Uniforms over the years, because here they can find quality garments with same-day monogramming, screen printing, computerized engraving and heat-sealing capabilities. Janet strongly emphasizes the importance of having imprintable technology on hand, because probably 9 out of every 10 garments sold are customized in some way. Needless to say, this in-house service is a major selling point, since most custom work can be handled on a while-you-wait basis.

As management was passed from one generation to the next, the family has maintained the commitment to quality products and the kind of service that comes with an on-premises owner. Landsmans offers the inventory of a large business with the personal touch of a family-owned and operated establishment. According to Janet, “It is the same formula used by my grandfather, father and mother and it works as well today as it did sixty years ago.”

“No business, including Landsman Uniforms and Embroidery, can be successful without a professional team to help manage growth. Our team is fortunate to include Capaldi, Reynolds, and Pelosi. Mike Reynolds has been an integral part of our growth and success.”

Client Spotlight: D’Arcy Johnson Day

Client Spotlight: D’Arcy Johnson Day

D’Arcy Johnson Day was founded in 2008 when the law offices of D’Arcy Johnson (Patrick D’Arcy, Andrew D’Arcy & Steven Johnson) combined with Christopher Day and Richard Albuquerque.  Both firms specialized in representing injured people and their goal was to combine forces to better serve their clients as well as launch their campaign to give back to the local communities.  With their shared resources, the Partners were able to commit over $100,000 a year to local charities and they continue to do so to this day.  Guided by the advice of Benjamin Franklin, DJD’s mission since 2008 has always been to “do well by doing good”.  According to Chris Day, “Capaldi Reynolds & Pelosi has been instrumental in the growth of D’Arcy Johnson Day from the very beginning and has provided valuable professional accounting and business advice.  Their level of service is second to none.”

For more than 15 years, D’Arcy Johnson Day has been regarded as leaders, known for results, both inside and outside the courtroom. The firm is known for its high-profile cases, such as the lawsuit that helped intensify the investigation into the murder of April Kauffman and a case that spotlighted the treatment of injured professional athletes. DJD has also handled matters that may not have made headlines, but nevertheless have made a huge impact on the people involved – people like the police widow who, with the firm’s help, received past due workers compensation benefits nearly 46 years after her husband was killed in the line of duty. DJD regularly takes on drug companies, neglectful nursing homes, and other corporate behemoths to advocate for those who need protection. The firm’s clients have shown their appreciation, recognizing DJD with the Best of the Press Gold Award in the legal services category for nine consecutive years.

D’Arcy Johnson Day’s professional commitment to fight for justice is matched by its dedication to help the community. Each year, the firm has supported hundreds of local sports teams, schools, charity events, and nonprofit organizations with financial donations, sponsorships, and volunteer hours. From supporting a fundraiser to purchase new beds for a veterans’ nursing and rehabilitation facility to sponsoring multiple National Night Out events throughout Atlantic County, DJD can be counted on to make a difference.  After reviewing the firm’s extensive list of charitable efforts and the enthusiastic nominations submitted by at least a dozen nonprofit organizations, the Press of Atlantic City named the firm the winner of the 2017 Bailey Award.

D’Arcy Johnson Day’s philanthropic activities have not slowed since the firm received the Bailey Award. From sponsoring events that benefit the Donny Fund and the Hope Exists Foundation to honoring our local heroes by supporting the Atlantic City Police Athletic League, the John R. Elliott Hero Walk, the Wildwood Fire Department, and Tunnel to Towers Foundation, the firm remains committed to making an impact in the community. Supportive of area schools and educators, DJD sponsored numerous school activities and sports teams, donated Christmas gifts to families of a local middle school, and helped a local high school fund its first senior trip in 20 years. Whether they are helping those who need a strong advocate in their corner or helping the organizations that support and shape the local area, D’Arcy Johnson Day continues to honor their pledge to clients and community to “do well by doing good.”

Client Spotlight: Bunting Family Pharmacy

Client Spotlight: Bunting Family Pharmacy

Josiah (Joe) Bunting is the owner of Bunting Family Pharmacy, an independent pharmacy in Northfield, New Jersey. Since 2008, Bunting Family Pharmacy has been providing quality health care and service to individuals in the local area.

Joe is a dedicated professional and a visionary, both of which have led to his success as an independent pharmacist. Independent pharmacists are not as common today as they were years ago. Today the big retail chain pharmacies dominate the marketplace offering 24 hour service, prescriptions, over the counter medications, and convenience store goods. You may ask yourself, how could Joe compete with such juggernauts, especially since he had no established patient base and only a little of his own savings to use as start-up costs? read more…
