NEW MILFORD — BBB Attorneys is taking over the New Milford law practice for Rudy Kuss, who is retiring.

BBB Attorneys is headquartered in West Hartford and Stratford.

Kuss focused on elder law throughout his 25 years in the legal profession, handling estate planning, long term care, guardianship, Title 19, retirement, Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid and more. He has won the Connecticut Legal Services Award and the Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging Partnership Award.

A Connecticut native, Kuss is in the Danbury High School Hall of Fame for football. He earned the Kiwanis Club Football Award in 1959, a berth on the 1960 Nutmeg Bowl team and a football scholarship to Rutgers University. After college, he attended the FBI academy and worked as a New York City police officer. He then went on to get his law degree from John's Hopkins University and worked in the private sector before going to work for legal services and then opening his practice in New Milford in 1995.

Kuss's partner, Michelle Liguori, will maintain her practice and continue to work alongside BBB Attorneys from their New Milford office. Liguori is a member of the New Milford Commission on Aging and has been practicing law in Connecticut for nearly 20 years.
