    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.

    I was a passenger on a motorcycle referred to Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. after I suffered very serious injuries in a Florida motorcycle accident.

    George Burke of Buckfire & Buckfire handled my motorcycle claims. He was very professional and explained all of my legal rights to me. He communicated with me regularly by email and phone; and kept me updated on my case. Mr. Burke assisted me with establishing a claim for my Michigan No-Fault benefits and pursued a claim against the negligent driver that caused the accident for my personal injuries. Mr. Burke obtained a significant settlement for me.

    Mr. Burke and the entire support staff at Buckfire & Buckfire were excellent to work with, and handled my case with the highest level of integrity and care. I am very happy with the results of my case, and I would highly recommend anyone injured in a bike accident to hire George Burke as their motorcycle accident attorney.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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 law firm 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.
