Michigan Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Review

Thomas Conkle
 
"I was riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle when I was rear-ended by an 18-year-old kid on a 'crotch rocket' motorcycle. I called Buckfire & Buckfire and spoke with attorney Bob Lantzy. I was impressed by Bob’s knowledge concerning my type of case and the fact that when I spoke to Bob it was like speaking to a 'real person.' Bob assured me at the outset that my case would not be transferred to any other attorney and that when I called I would speak with him rather than a paralegal or clerk. Bob was true to his word."
