Lawyer James Convery, former Passaic administrator, dies - NorthJersey.com

Monday, March 06, 2017

No. 2 lawyer, for much of his 27-year government tenure. He distinguished himself by avoiding controversy and getting along with elected officials from both parties. In 2000, the freeholders tapped him to replace Nicola DiDonna as administrator after DiDonna was indicted on corruption charges.Mr. Convery, described in The Record as "apolitical," remained county administrator until retiring in early 2004. He wrestled with a yawning budget shortfall in 2002 and kept a low profile while overseeing more than 2,000 employees and a quarter-billion-dollar budget.And he displayed the same knack for conciliation he did as a county lawyer. In one instance, he intervened when a freeholder objected to the large-size letters on the sign proclaiming "Passaic County Sheriff’s Department" and "Sheriff Jerry Speziale" at the department’s offices in Wayne.Mr. Convery left the flamboyant Speziale’s sign intact but ordered that the co-tenant, the county Board of Taxation, have an equally prominent sign.Mr. Convery’s final two years as deputy counsel were under Bill Pascrell III, now in his 18th year as county counsel. Pascrell said he advocated for Mr. Convery, 24 years his senior, to move up to administrator."Jim was a straight shooter, honest as the day is long, and never a political guy," Pascrell said. "He was a great, fair administrator, and the political leadership was comfortable with him because they knew the county was in good hands. Being the administrator was...

Marcia Denbeaux, lawyer dedicated to helping Bergen County domestic violence victims, dies at 72 - NorthJersey.com

Monday, September 05, 2016

For her efforts, Mrs. Denbeaux received commendations from the Bergen County Board of Freeholders and the New Jersey Assembly.Mrs. Denbeaux’s daughter, Abigail Kahl, a lawyer who is of counsel at Denbeaux & Denbeaux, described her mother as “quietly fierce” and a fighter of injustice.“People sometimes underestimated her because she was sweet and petite,” Kahl said. “But she was incredibly strong. She just didn’t feel the need to be the loudest person in the room.”Active in Woodcliff Lake affairs, Mrs. Denbeaux was a former councilwoman and, at her death, a member of the zoning board.“Here’s how responsible she was: She felt bad that she missed two zoning board meetings and, in the hospital a week before she died, she had someone deliver the CD from the last meeting,” her daughter said.Marcia W. Denbeaux is survived by her husband of 51 years, Mark Denbeaux, a Seton Hall University law professor; her children, Joshua Denbeaux of Hillsdale, Abigail Kahl of Hillsdale and Gregory Denbeaux of Albany, N.Y.; Marcelle Higgs of Woodcliff Lake, whom Mrs. Denbeaux helped raise and considered a son; her mother, Helen Wood of Boulder, Colo.; sisters Caroline Wood of Berkeley, Calif., Janet Wood Dillingham of Denver and Beverly Thurber of Fort Collins, Colo., and eight grandchildren.A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Sept. 10 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Montvale.
