About Us

McVane | Bellobuono | Kuzmak | Wiezalis & Bibisi, LLP

Established 1967

EXPERIENCED, PROFESSIONAL, ETHICAL

 

Our historic, Connecticut roots go back to a partnership established in 1967.

 Frank J. McVane (1914-1984), then CT State's Attorney in New Britain, invited Michael C. 

Bellobuono (1941-2012), a younger state prosecutor in Hartford to join him.   

For more than 50 years, what started as a small criminal law practice in Hartford’s 

South End developed into a firm that covers an array of client needs across central 

Connecticut.  The additions of M. Patricia McVane, Richard P. Kuzmak, 

Raymond J. Wiezalis and Joseph W. Bibisi have created a professional group of lawyers

who advise and consult on a broad base of legal needs. 

 

From relatively minor issues to complex financial and development work we have extensive experience: 

Commercial & Residential Real Estate, Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts,

Personal Injury, Motor Vehicle & Workers Compensation,

Civil Litigation, Probate and Criminal Representation.

Over the years, we have litigated many cases throughout the State’s Courts.  

We appear regularly in State Probate and Superior Courts. 

Our significant growth is a result of our reputation for providing

effective legal advice and service at reasonable cost.
