When my 2 year old daughter was severely bitten by a dog my husband and I didn’t know where to begin. Robert Lantzy, from Buckfire & Buckfire, put that all at ease! He actually came directly to the hospital to go over everything with us. I never once felt stressed about the handling of my daughter’s case.
Robert always made sure we knew exactly what was going on and explained everything in detail and answered any questions. He took into consideration how hectic everyday life is and made it so simple for us! My daughter’s case was resolved in less than a year, the settlement was above and beyond what we expected.
Thanks to Robert Lantzy my daughter will get the medical care she needs for future surgeries and we could not have done it without him! If you want your case handled with respect and promptness then I couldn’t recommend anyone better than Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C.

I was attacked by an 80 pound dog and hired the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to handle my case. Daniel Buckfire was my attorney. He was always available to answer my questions and give me the best advice. I did not know what to expect but everything was explained as we went along. I trusted his expertise and think he is excellent at what he does.

Daniel Korbutt, Clinton Twp., MI
Buckfire & Buckfire is an exceptional law firm. I was really impressed with the way they handled my personal injury case. They are very caring about their clients and at many times I often felt I was their only client because of how much time was spent on my slip and fall accident case. I truly feel they went above and beyond to help me receive maximum settlement for my injuries. I am very pleased with the results of my case and how Buckfire & Buckfire handled my lawsuit.

Aaron Mole, Washington, MI
I choose Buckfire & Buckfire for my Northern Michigan dog bite case after my daughter, who was searching for an attorney for me, talked to Mr. Buckfire and instantly liked him. I felt Buckfire & Buckfire provided me with outstanding service. They were excellent when it came to communicating, clarified all information and answered all my questions throughout the entire process, and most of all kept the stress off of me. The dog attack took place one week after I lost my husband. The law firm was professional and their concern for my well being allowed me to focus on healing while they handled everything else. The outcome of my case was better than my expectations. I would definitely refer a family member, friend, or acquaintance to Buckfire & Buckfire for a consultation and legal representation.

"First class organization from the office secretary to my personal attorney to the head of the firm, the Buckfires."
Daniel Korbutt, Clinton Twp, MI
Attorney Robert Lantzy was very thorough with my personal injury case. I have never had to have a lawyer but I’m glad that when I needed one I had Buckfire & Buckfire. Robert Lantzy was so nice and explained every step in common terms. He knew I was a busy mom, student and worker and was extremely patient with my tight schedule. I trust him and the outcome of my case exceeded my expectations.
Laura Johnson, Birmingham, MI
GWRRA Motorcycle Chapter F2 would like to thank Buckfire & Buckfire for the great and informative presentation by one of your staff at our May Chapter Gathering. Your motorcycle accident attorney was very informative and very knowledgeable to help our members understand the intricacies on the new Michigan Helmet Law which is certainly much more complicated than just deciding to wear a helmet or not. If anyone is involved in a motorcycle accident, we certainly would recommend they call Buckfire & Buckfire for expert legal assistance.
Ralph Rheingans, Jr., Davison, MI
I would highly recommend attorney Lawrence J. Buckfire to anyone considering a nursing home neglect or nursing home abuse case in Michigan. I hired Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to investigate a case involving the death of my father at a Detroit nursing home. My father suffered a brain injury while at the nursing home and later died at a local hospital.
My family suspected that his death was due to neglect and inadequate supervision by the nursing staff. Mr. Buckfire filed a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit against the nursing home and was able to obtain significant evidence during the litigation process. Based upon his hard work, he was able to win a settlement for my family.
We could not be more pleased with Mr. Buckfire or his law firm. He communicated with us on a regular basis and provided frequent updates on the case. Best of all, he explained the legal process to us from start to finish and worked with us every step of the way. We are grateful for his hard work and the excellent result.
Anthony Amos, Jr., Detroit, MI
Since 1980, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) has been focused on a three-fold mission to eliminate drunk driving, to support victims of this violent crime, and to prevent underage drinking. Sadly, this is a massive task. Our efforts are aided tremendously by the support of like-minded organizations like Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. The personal injury law firm has demonstrated its commitment not only through critical financial support for consecutive years, but also through a passionate and involved staff in support of MADD’s mission.
Sherry McGee, MADD MI State Executive Director
I hired the personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to handle my food poisoning illness case after suffering injuries from eating at a banquet hall facility in Shelby Township, Michigan. I was very impressed with how the firm handled my case. It was clear that my attorney, Robert Lantzy, had my best interest in mind throughout the case. Mr. Lantzy communicated with me and kept me informed during the entire litigation process. I always knew exactly what was going on at every step of the case. He did an outstanding job and has a top notch legal staff who were very knowledgeable, and returned any of my calls promptly. I would highly recommend Mr. Lantzy and his firm to any of my friends or family members. I would say he is one of the top personal injury attorneys in Michigan. I was very pleased with the results of my case.
Susan Parker, Hazel Park, Michigan
I contacted Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to investigate a medical malpractice case against my podiatrist. I was concerned that the treatment that I received from a local doctor was negligent and that this caused me a significant injury. I felt that it was necessary to discuss my case with the top-rated medical malpractice lawyers in Michigan.
I was treating with my podiatrist for foot wound but he was not properly treating my infection. The condition continued to worsen and I eventually went to the University of Michigan Hospital for an evaluation and treatment. I was told by the surgeon that due to the severity of the infection that my leg would have to be amputated. I had a below knee amputation on my leg.
I originally spoke with attorney Larry Buckfire about my case. He has a team of great lawyers and attorney Randy Blau took over my case. He filed a lawsuit against the doctor and was able to prove through medical expert witnesses that the podiatrist was negligent in my care and that this was a cause of my amputation. Mr. Blau was able to obtain an excellent settlement for me.
I would highly recommend the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to anyone considering pursuing a medical malpractice case. Both Mr. Buckfire and Mr. Blau handled my case with both skill and professionalism. They really did a great job for me.
Harry Carter, Brighton, Michigan
I was attacked by a neighbor’s Pit-bull and German Sheppard while walking my small dog through my neighborhood. I had never needed to hire a lawyer before this incident. We went to a friend who was a lawyer and she gave us some strategies for hiring a competent and professional personal injury attorney. After several attorney interviews we decided to retain the services of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. Attorney Bob Lantzy was assigned to handle our case directly.
Mr. Lantzy came to our house for our initial meeting and fully discussed the facts of the case and explained the litigation process that we could expect to encounter. The attack occurred on April 11, 2012. The lawsuit was immediately filed and the entire case was settled on November 7, 2012. Other lawyers told us it would take a year or more to resolve the case if it was put into litigation. In our opinion Mr. Lantzy handled our case in a professional and highly efficient manner. He was able to achieve an excellent settlement for our case.
Mr. Lantzy and his staff provided great communication with us throughout the entire process and worked hard to achieve an excellent settlement. We would highly recommend the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to anyone searching for a top personal injury and dog bite lawyer in Michigan.
Michelle Ramoie, Leonard, Michigan
It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon in May when my life took a drastic change. I was hit by a car while walking; a walk that I have taken many times before. An accident such as this affects everyone in your life and when you are the least capable you have to make some very important decisions. When my wife heard about Buckfire & Buckfire, she knew this firm and our family would be a perfect fit. We contacted Buckfire & Buckfire and within days the firm helped us to navigate the unfamiliar territory we would have to deal with for quite a while. Even though I may not have been fully able to understand the entire process, I had faith that the attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire was steering us in the right direction. Being a former business owner, I appreciate those who truly know their job. Everyone we have had contact with within this firm is knowledgeable, courteous and respectful.
We have gained quite an education of the insurance process and share our newly gained knowledge with everyone we can. Insurance companies can be very vague when it comes to explaining your rights even though you put your faith in them that they will do the right thing in times of need.
Our family will never be able to thank the pedestrian injury attorneys and Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. enough. The settlement I received and the assistance with getting all the medical bills and wage loss benefits covered is so valuable. I will recommend Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you.
Don Powell, Hartland, MI
Our client was injured in a T-bone intersection Michigan car accident caused by an unexperienced driver. Injuries included a closed head injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. The auto accident lawyers of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. were able to help her be getting her meical bills paid and recover damages for her pain and suffering.
We contacted attorney Lawrence J. Buckfire to represent our four year old daughter in a medical malpractice case against her former pediatrician. We were very concerned that the pediatrician was negligent in failing to diagnose the condition of pediatric hip dysplasia when our child was an infant. She was later diagnosed by another doctor, but due to the late diagnosis she had to undergo several surgeries.
Mr. Buckfire thoroughly reviewed the records and determined that there was a valid case. He worked with two top medical experts to prove that the pediatrician did commit medical malpractice and that a sooner diagnosis would have resulted in treatment other than surgery. He was able to achieve an excellent settlement for our daughter.
Mr. Buckfire and his staff provided great communication with us throughout the entire process and worked hard to achieve an excellent settlement. I would highly recommend the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. to the parents of any injured child and to anyone searching for a top medical malpractice lawyer in Michigan.
Garon Fry & Ashley Cole, Southgate, Michigan
I was referred to Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. by a fellow Michigan ABATE Member after I suffered very serious injuries in a Florida motorcycle accident.
The accident law firm handled my motorcycle claims. They were very professional and all of my legal rights were explained to me. The attorney pursued a claim against the negligent driver that caused the accident for my personal injuries and assisted me in submitting all of my claims to my insurance company for no-fault benefits. The at fault driver filed bankruptcy and Buckfire & Buckfire navigated through the bankruptcy issues and was still able to obtain a significant settlement for me.
I am grateful for the excellent work that Buckfire & Buckfire did for me. The entire support staff was great to work with and handled my case with compassion and integrity. I would highly recommend Buckfire & Buckfire to anyone injured in a motorcycle or motor vehicle accident.

Elvera Lantz, L'Anse, Michigan
My experience was a pleasant one, considering the circumstances. I was injured by a drunk driver in a hit-and-run accident 3 ½ years ago. Before I found Buckfire & Buckfire, I was told by another popular firm here in Michigan that my injuries were not severe enough for a case. I was fortunate enough to find Buckfire & Buckfire on the internet. I met with Daniel Buckfire during my first visit. He treated me like a human being and not as if I was a dollar sign. All of my following visits with the law firm were very professional and my attorney was easy to talk to. The process from start to finish was not easy but the drunk driving attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire were with me every step of the way, getting my case resolved in a very timely manner. I’m pleased with the outcome and would like to thank the entire staff at Buckfire & Buckfire. I show my appreciation by recommending their services to friends and family.
Pia Yates, Inkster, Michigan
I was referred to Attorney Lawrence Buckfire by an insurance defense lawyer that I had known from my days working for a major insurance company myself. I suffered serious injuries while on vacation in Grayling, Michigan. I suffered a fractured sternum, broken ribs, and a closed head injury.
Mr. Buckfire came to my house to meet me for the first time. He was very professional and explained all of my legal rights to me. He then pursued a claim against the negligent driver that caused the accident for my personal injuries and assisted me in submitting all of my claims to my insurance company for no-fault benefits. He worked very hard to settle my injury claim against the negligent driver for the full insurance policy limits.
When my own auto insurance company refused to pay my wage loss benefits, medical benefits, and other benefits, he filed a lawsuit against the insurance company. He was then able to get the insurance company to pay all of my outstanding benefits.
I am grateful for the excellent work that Buckfire & Buckfire did for me. The entire support staff was great to work with and handled my case with compassion and integrity. I would highly recommend Lawrence Buckfire to anyone injured in a Michigan auto accident.
Diana Dickerson, Waterford, MI
The law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire more than exceeded my expectation in handling my lawsuit. The highly professional legal team laid out the strategy, the steps the car accident attorney and his team would be taking in support of my claim and kept me abreast throughout the process in a most professional manner. This transparency was remarkable. The attention received in ensuring that every ounce of my claim was given the proper consideration it required was equally outstanding. If they didn’t understand something they didn’t fake it but communicated their concern until they fully understood my position. No stones were left unturned in maximizing the outcome. I felt immediately reassured following my initial conversation that indeed this was the team I needed in support of my injuries claim. As it turned out I was indeed accurate in my gut feel and assessment of Buckfire & Buckfire. I would without hesitation highly recommend this outstanding team of attorneys to anyone who feels they need a real advocate in their corner. Having Buckfire & Buckfire on your side eliminates the possibility that your opponent will be hiring them and that in itself is a relief.
Lou Caporusso, Toronto, ON
My name is Staci Barkkari and I am the legal guardian for my Uncle, who was hit by a drunk driver 4 years ago. My Uncle went from a fully functioning, active, working man in his fifties to a man that now has to be completely taken care of by others. Our attorney and the rest of the Buckfire staff have been a large part of our lives the past 4 years. They have done all they can to ensure that my Uncle's medical expenses and continued life long care is paid for by the insurance company. I haven't had to deal with any problems. If something comes up, I just give Buckfire & Buckfire a call and they take care of it! They really have been a great resource for me to rely on through such a difficult situation. I don't know what I would have done without Buckfire Law. Thank you so much!!
Staci Barkkari Behalf of Ralph Weaver, Clawson, MI
I would like to thank the Michigan personal injury lawyers at Buckfire and Buckfire, P.C. for being an excellent source for me through the years for legal advice and assistance. When I think about the events over the last 20 years which presented the need for legal assistance Buckfire has always been my first contact. I have never actually had to hire an attorney because of the free legal consultation I've gotten from Buckfire and Buckfire and that's a good experience for me to be able to reflect back on. Thanks Again for your great service!
Deborah Gordon, Detroit, Michigan
Buckfire and Buckfire is an excellent law firm. From day one I was treated with respect, dignity, and always felt that my case was very important. Larry Buckfire was the attorney who handled my case. He was always professional, on time, respectful, and reliable. He was always there to explain things in understandable terms and was good at keeping me up to date with all processes involved with my claim. Buckfire and Buckfire is truly a law firm that cares and works hard to get the results that are deserved. I am very grateful to Larry and his staff. I would recommend anyone who has been seriously injured to contact Larry immediately for the help, support, and the legal guidance that he is able to provide.
Stacy Goodpaster, Social Worker, Ecorse, MI
Nursing home neglect lawyer, Randy Blau, from Buckfire & Buckfire, was an absolutely wonderful speaker to our group of Stephen Ministers. He presented the group with a wealth of valuable information on nursing home neglect and abuse and answered everyone's questions. We have care receivers in assisted living, nursing homes, and hospitals on a very regular basis. Thank you so much Buckfire & Buckfire for having him speak to our group.
Bobbie Weidendorf, Farmington Hills, Michigan
I hired the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire to handle my nursing home neglect case against a Saginaw skilled nursing care facility. I would highly recommend anyone who has lost a loved one or suffered injuries due to medical malpractice or nursing home neglect to hire Buckfire & Buckfire as their law firm. They treated me with respect and kept me well informed throughout the whole process of filing the claim. They have earned my highest possible rating for their quality of representation and legal ability, meeting all of my expectations.
Vincent N. Candela, Saginaw, Michigan
When I was released from the hospital after my Livingston County accident I asked my wife if she could help me find a law firm that specialized in personal injury and no fault cases. I'm grateful she found Buckfire & Buckfire. The service they provided to me was professional, going beyond my expectations, and was competent, courteous, and thoughtful. My case was carefully represented and it was presented to me in a realistic manner. From start to finish, the firm worked towards my best interest and I would not hesitate to recommend the expert and personalized services of Buckfire & Buckfire to a family member, friend, or acquaintance.

Dieter Wasserbaech, Shelby Township, MI
Never having been involved in a lawsuit before I wasn't sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised that the personal injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire took the time to personally meet with me, explain the process and answer any questions that I may have had. They were very professional, knew the law and best of all, negotiated a settlement for me that was fair compensation for the injuries I received. They also successfully reduced the lien from my insurer so that I would receive a larger "take-home" of the settlement. For your personal injury cases, I would recommend the Michigan accident law firm Buckfire & Buckfire.
Kevin, Walled Lake, MI
I can not thank Daniel Buckfire enough for helping in my No-Fault Insurance claim against State Farm Insurance Company. I am a quadriplegic as a result of a car accident and my insurance company denied me a portion of my insurance benefits. I contacted Daniel and he was able to get those benefits paid quickly for me.
Daniel is a very caring and compassionate person. Even though he doesn't really know me he treated me as if I was one of his family and made me feel very comfortable. I knew from the first time that we spoke that he would give his all to resolve the situation with little regard for his personal benefit. I had all but given up when a friend recommended me to Mr. Buckfire and he was more than willing to go to work to get me when I rightly deserved. Alot in my life had been ripped away as a result of the car accident but Daniel was there to help me restore as much as possible. He even made sure that I was completely satisfied with the results.
I highly recommend him to anyone injured in an accident. He really knows the law and insurance companies listen to him.
Brian Woodward, Detroit, MI
I could not ask for a better attorney and a compassionate person. Daniel Buckfire gets the job done with a positive attitude in representing you. Anyone who gets him as an attorney won't regret it.
M.L., Michigan car accident client
I first called a lawyer from a television advertisement after I was rear-ended by a truck and had terrible low back pain. The TV lawyer then referred me to another firm and my call was given to a paralegal, not a lawyer. The paralegal told me that I was not hurt serious enough to have a case and told me that her firm was not interested in representing me.
A friend then suggested that I call attorney Daniel Buckfire about my Detroit, Michigan car accident case. He spoke with me personally and gave me a lot of information that no one else did. I met with him at his office and he understood the serious nature of my injury and began working on my case immediately. My condition worsened and I have had several surgeries. I can no longer walk. Mr. Buckfire fought hard to obtain a truck accident injury settlement of $1,400,000.00 for me.
It has been several years after my case settled and Mr. Buckfire is still fighting for me to make sure that all of my medical bills and insurance benefits get paid. I cannot imagine any other attorney going to such great lengths to help a client. I am grateful for his efforts.
Margie D., Ohio
When my child was diagnosed with lead poisoning because my landlord refused to paint my apartment, I didn’t know where to turn. My doctor and the health department nurse told me that my son would have learning and behavioral problems when he got older because of the lead poisoning. The health department inspector told me that Larry Buckfire was the best lead poisoning lawyer in Michigan.
I called him and he filed a lawsuit against my former landlord. Not only did he get a great settlement for my son, but he set up a college trust fund for him with a portion of the settlement. His greatest concern was the future financial security of my child and I am grateful for his efforts.
Carol R., Detroit, MI
My son and I suffered very serious personal injuries in a Michigan car accident when another driver crossed the center lane of the road and hit our car. I suffered numerous fractures in my leg and other orthopedic injuries that required surgeries. My son suffered a traumatic brain injury. We needed the best legal representation possible for our case.
My husband was referred to the Michigan personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. for our case. Attorney Robert Lantzy met with us and immediately began his investigation. The other driver denied that he was negligent and blamed me for the accident. Mr. Lantzy hired a former state police accident investigator to perform an accident reconstruction and also hired a former automotive engineer to download the black box from the defendant’s truck to prove that the other driver was driving above the speed limit at the time. He also subpoenaed the other driver’s cell phone records to show that he was talking on the phone at the time of the accident.
Because of his efforts, we proved that the other driver was at fault and the driver’s insurance company paid a significant settlement for our injury claims. Mr. Lantzy also made sure that the no-fault insurance company paid all of my medical bills and other benefits. Hiring his firm to represent my son and myself was the best decision I could have possibly made. Many thanks for the great work.
Kathy G., Imlay City, Michigan
As a nurse case manager, I am frequently involved with patients who are involved in lawsuits. Most of these are from auto accidents and typically involve brain injury and spinal cord injury patients. As a result, I frequently deal with personal injury lawyers on these cases.
My experience with the lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. has been great over the years. When I call their office, I speak to the lawyer handling the case, not a paralegal or law clerk. This alone clearly separates them from 90% of other law firms handling injury cases.
The lawyers provide me with great assistance in handling my patients. They promptly provide me with all necessary information to have medical treatment provided and often even contact the insurance company to make sure the benefits will be paid. They all make sure that my bills are paid.
Nurse Case Manager, Livonia, MI
My husband died when a truck left the roadway and struck him. He was off the shoulder of the roadway helping another motorist pull his car out of a snow bank. I had three children and did not know where to turn. I was not only grieving, but extremely concerned as to how I would support my family.
Another lawyer told me to call attorney the Michigan personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. I did and I am appreciative of that referral. The law firm met with me and immediately began working to get the No-Fault Insurance benefits paid. The process was very confusing to me and they took over and did the work. They also started to investigate the claim against the driver and owner of the car that struck my husband.
The driver and his insurance company denied that the car struck my husband and then tried to claim that my husband was actually standing in the roadway. The wrongful death lawyers immediately hired investigators, an accident reconstruction expert, and began locating witnesses. They even hired an automotive engineer to download the “black box” on the vehicle to prove that the driver was going too fast when he hit my husband.
The work that they did helped me settle my Michigan wrongful death case for $1,600,000.00. Their knowledge of law was second to none and they hired the best experts to prove my case. Best of all, they kept me advised of my case from day one, returned all of my phone calls, and made sure that I understood everything that was happening throughout the entire process.
Tracy R., Troy, MI
I was referred to attorney Larry Buckfire by my physician after I was severely injured in a Michigan car accident when my car struck a deer. I sustained a number of serious injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, orthopedic injuries to my knees and back, and numerous other injuries. I have two masters degrees and was working in the human resource department for a large company in the Detroit area.
Before the accident, I was a healthy and active person. I exercised regularly and worked everyday. Since the accident, I have been unable to do either. I was shocked when my own no-fault insurance company was refusing to pay my benefits for medical bills, wage loss, and attendant care services after the accident. I had assumed that because I had paid my premiums and was seriously injured in an accident, they would take care of me. I was wrong.
The insurance company refused to pay my benefits. Mr. Buckfire filed a lawsuit against them and made them pay every penny that they owed. My case settled several years ago but occasionally there is still a dispute over a medical bill. I have since moved to California but I never hesitate to pick up the phone and call Larry. He promptly takes care of the problem. Every time I see my doctor, I thank her again for the referral to Buckfire & Buckfire.
Michael M., Southern California
I am a former U.S. Army Ranger and an avid biker. I have been riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle for over 25 years and am a member a Michigan motorcycle club. On October 9, 2006, I was riding my bike in Detroit when a tractor-trailer truck pulled into my lane of travel and forced me to roll my bike into an oncoming lane of traffic. I suffered catastrophic injuries, including a traumatic brain injury and numerous bone fractures, which required multiple surgeries. I am completely disabled from my work as a truck driver and have required around the clock nursing assistance from my wife during the 1st several months after my release from the hospital.
While I was in the hospital, my wife did extensive research on lawyers on the internet to find the best law firm to handle my case. She contacted attorney Daniel Buckfire and he came to the hospital to visit us. He carefully explained my rights under the Michigan No-Fault law and answered our concerns over who would pay my medical bills and lost wages. He taught us about other benefits, like attendant care, that we did not even know existed. We were very impressed with him and hired Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. to handle our case.
The insurance company for the trucking company told us that they were not responsible for paying my medical bills and other benefits, which was not true. The motorcycle accident lawyer at Buckfire & Buckfire proved them wrong and they have paid over $500,000.00 in insurance benefits. The firm also immediately began their investigation and hired the best accident reconstruction experts to interview witnesses, take photographs, inspect the vehicles involved and investigate the case. The trucking company blamed me for my injuries, but the experts proved that the truck driver was at fault for my injuries. The firm did not spare any expense in proving my case and settled my case for $1,100,000.00, within one year of the accident.
I could not be more pleased with the work that they did for my family and me. My attorney paid attention to every detail and fought the insurance companies to the end. Hiring Buckfire & Buckfire for my case was the best decision I could have made. In my opinion, they are the bese motorcycle accident lawyers in Michigan.
Michael Smith, Waterford, Michigan

I have focused my practice on complex tort and personal injury cases and have working relationships with the top trial lawyers throughout the United States. In Michigan, I refer my serious and catastrophic personal injury cases to Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. They have obtained excellent results for my clients on very difficult cases. My clients are always extremely satisfied with the personal attention that they receive from the firm.
Ari Kresch, Attorney, Southfield, MI and NY, NY
For the first ten years of my legal career, I represented clients who suffered brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other catastrophic injury clients in liability cases. Since that time, I have served as general counsel for a national physician, nurse, and medical provider service. Throughout my professional career, there are only a few Michigan personal injury attorneys who I consider to be in an elite group when it comes to representing catastrophically injured clients. Larry and Daniel Buckfire are in that group. Their reputation for ethical and effective advocacy is respected throughout the legal community.
Jeffrey Silverman, Atty General Counsel, Michigan
"Families of injured children hire Larry Buckfire to represent their injured child for three (3) reasons. First, without question, Larry is among the elite child injury lawyers in the United States of America, and is clearly the leader in the State of Michigan. He has recovered millions of dollars for injured children time after time.

Chris Keane, Attorney, San Francisco, CA
I am a Michigan psychiatrist and specialize in the treatment of patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries. In my experience, there is a small select group of lawyers who fully understand the medicine and science behind brain injuries. There is even a smaller group who understand how these injuries affect people every day and how to best represent these injuries in a legal proceeding.
I have had several brain patients represented by attorney Daniel Buckfire and have had the occasion to meet with him. Daniel is the attorney that brain injured patients should turn to for the best possible legal representation.
