Bell, Moore & Richter is one of Wisconsin's oldest law firms, established in 1851, three years after Wisconsin became the 30th state admitted to the Union. Originally founded under the name of Vilas & Remington, the firm began operation after Levy Baker Vilas moved to Wisconsin and set up his practice in Madison. BMR is proud to continue a tradition of providing our community legal services and builds its practice on a commitment to legal excellence by dedicated professionals. Many of BMR's attorneys have gone on to served as: mayors, U.S. senators, state legislators, law professors, Wisconsin's Supreme Court justices, federal judge, and circuit court judges. As our society becomes more complex and you are in search of legal assistance, BMR can provide a variety of legal services and is here to help you.
