Originally founded by Leo Nevas and his brother in 1936, Nevas, Capasse & Gerard, LLC, through its evolution over the years has remained a fixture in downtown Westport for over 75 years. As its leader, Leo Nevas, a former Judge, community leader and philanthropist built a firm with an outstanding reputation as a general practice with an emphasis in business, non-profit organizations, real estate, zoning, estate planning and probate matters.
Continuing through the years with the addition of Jamie K. Gerard in 1984, and the joining of forces of Nevas, Nevas and Rubin with Tate, Capasse and Johnson in 1989, another firm with historical roots in Westport, it emerged as a leading Westport law firm, serving its combined clientele throughout Fairfield County. Edward Capasse, a Westport native and former prosecutor, has built an outstanding reputation for his legal skills, community outreach as well as garnering admiration and respect from all who have come to know him. He is currently “Of Counsel” to the firm since recently relocating his primary residence to Florida.
Our philosophy is to provide clients with that extra measure of personal attention combined with the highest quality of legal services. Our office is located in Westport, but we serve clients in all parts of Fairfield County and beyond, drawing upon decades of experience in the legal community. Our unparalleled commitment to our clients accounts for why so many of them have repeatedly engaged us to handle their legal matters for over 30 years. We would love the opportunity to put our skills to work for you.
