Denville law firm Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost PC will change its name to Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick PC, effective Aug. 1.
The revamp honors the firm’s 58 year history while focusing on what it calls present strengths, growing practice areas, and focus on the evolving needs of its diverse clients.
“The practice of law is always changing, as are the challenges facing families and businesses in everything from estate planning to custody agreements to zoning to employment policies. Our new brand is reflective of the mindset and creativity required to help clients identify and meet these challenges,” said Gary Botwinick, co-managing partner of the firm in a statement. “From an operational standpoint, too, our firm has changed. We are highly attuned to our clients’ expanding needs and offer innovative services such as our On-Call for Business group, a cost-efficient way for small businesses to essentially have a virtual in-house lawyer on call when needed.”
You have to have more years in front of you than behind you to have a vision: that’s one of Botwinick’s axioms.
“As we look ahead, we recognize that our clients reflect a cross-section of society that has a panoply of individual and business issues on a daily basis,” said Co-Managing Partner and Chair of the Board Patricia Barbarito in a statement. “Our job is to provide our clients with a talented and collaborative team that evolves to suit their expectations and individual needs. Our new brand is symbolic of that responsibility as well as our excitement for the future of the firm.”

When Barbarito joined the firm as a summer associate in 1980, there were only three attorneys. At the time, it was under the leadership of Theodore E.B. Einhorn, who founded the firm in 1961.
Now, the firm has grown to 31 attorneys and 34 staff, with areas of concentration including business and corporate matters, employment law, commercial litigation, personal injury and workers’ compensation, family and matrimonial matters, real estate and zoning issues, estate planning, special education, assisted living issues, criminal law, and tax law, and the firm has a strong appellate practice that touches on a variety of legal issues.
Einhorn currently serves as of counsel. Bonnie Frost is chair of the firm’s appellate practice group and has practiced family law since joining the firm in 1985.
Botwinick, who along with being co-managing partner is also chair of the taxation, trusts and estates department, joined the firm in 1998 and was named co-managing partner in early 2019.
