BWP’s "Stay Safe & Enjoy your Fourth" Monday’s Edition: Fireworks

Why Fireworks on the Fourth?

On July 3, 1776, John Adams wrote to his wife:

“I am apt to believe that [Independence Day] will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival,” he wrote. “It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

A year later, the United States first celebrated Independence Day and the skies were illuminated with bonfires, cannons, guns and fireworks. Today, more than 14,000 fireworks are set off across the country in celebration.

    Thanks to Attorney Parese we were able to reach a positive outcome

    Thanks to Attorney Parese we were able to reach a positive outcome

    On December 13, 2016 I was involved in an automobile accident (not my fault) at which time my car was totaled and I was injured. Fortunately, occupants of the other vehicle were not hurt. While at the auto body shop that I use, I picked up a Buckley, Wynne & Parese booklet. After reading through the information I made a phone call to the law office and was immediately scheduled with an appointment. I met with John Parese who discussed the process with me and made me feel at ease and confident that I was in good hands in moving forward. John was upfront in telling me that patience was key to moving through the process and completing all doctor visits and physical therapy were key to a positive outcome. John remained in contact, checking in on my progress and advising where we were in the proceeding. Thanks to Attorney Parese we were able to reach a positive outcome and for that I am truly grateful. I would definitely recommend Buckley, Wynne & Parese to friends and family. Thank you John!

    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.
