About Buckley Wynne & Parese

With Buckley Wynne & Parese, you get the experience and concern of seasoned New Haven CT personal injury attorneys who work to minimize your worries while obtaining the best results for your personal injury claim.

About The Firm

Back in 1881, a young lawyer named John Wynne opened a law office in Connecticut, starting a family tradition of striving to provide excellent legal service. In 1986, fourth-generation lawyer John Wynne, Jr. joined with John Buckley in a legal practice that concentrates all the firm’s experience, energy, and resources on helping personal injury victims and the families of wrongful death victims. John Parese joined the firm in 2007. Our practice areas include personal injury, wrongful death, and professional malpractice.

There is no cost or obligation for our professional analysis of your claim. All our personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means that if we are unable to recover anything, there is no charge for our legal services or expenses. At the time of settlement or judgment, we receive a percentage of the recovery plus related expenses, which is agreed upon before we begin work on your case.

At Buckley Wynne & Parese, the law partners do the work. Your file will not be passed on to another attorney. Every case is handled by an attorney. With Buckley Wynne & Parese, you get the experience and concern of seasoned personal injury attorneys who work to minimize your worries while obtaining the best results for your personal injury claim. We will meet you in our offices, at your home, or in your hospital room. We are available at your convenience.

Buckley Wynne & Parese has represented clients in state, federal, and appellate courts including the Connecticut Supreme Court. They are members of the American Association for Justice (Formerly the American Trial Lawyers Association), the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, the American Bar Association, Connecticut Bar Association, the New Haven County Bar Association and have served as lecturers for various organizations throughout Connecticut.

    Would not go to anyone else

    Would not go to anyone else

    We have worked with the firm of Buckley Wynne and Parese over the past several years, exclusively with Atty. John Parese. We feel that Atty. Parese is our "go-to" attorney for whatever we need, whether it's case related or legal advice on a personal matter. John is ALWAYS quick to respond, professional in his presentation and honest and sincere with his approach. We trust him 1000%, would not go to anyone else and we refer the firm whenever we can. In addition, everyone on the office staff is just as professional, responsive and helpful. A "Wynne-ing" combination for sure.

    Thank you for expertise, you and your staff are amazing.

    Thank you for expertise, you and your staff are amazing.

    I would highly recommend John Buckley and BWP. John explained every aspect of my situation and how to approach resolution, He made sure I was kept informed with frequent meetings/phone calls and was always available to answer questions. John provides old fashioned, quality service with the knowledge to get the job done correctly, efficiently, with honesty and integrity. He listened to my concerns, addressed them, and explained each step of the way how the process worked. He even got me a ride to court when I told him I was afraid to drive during a snowstorm!
