Michigan Bus Accident Lawyer Review

James Hennen
michigan charter bus accident lawyer review"I was hit by a private charter bus while riding my motorcycle in Detroit. I hired Bob Lantzy and the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire after not being happy with my former attorneys. I found Bob Lantzy to be easy to speak with and work with throughout my case. He answered all of my calls or returned them without delay. He always kept me informed. He resolved a first party no-fault benefit case and third party pain and suffering case for me. I was very pleased with both settlements. Bob was honest and forthright. I would highly recommend Bob Lantzy and Buckfire and Buckfire to anyone who needs a lawyer."
