Robert Lantzy Buckfire LawSOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Buckfire Law is pleased to announce Robert Lantzy has been named by Michigan Lawyers Weekly as a “Go To Lawyer” in 2023-24 for negligence law, which includes personal injury, premises liability and product liability.

Michigan Lawyers Weekly recognizes leading lawyers in a specific field of law, and are nominated by their peers. The highly touted legal publication, which is published statewide, considers a Go To Lawyer as an attorney who:

  • Is an expert in their field and is well-versed in the nuances of case law, statutes, and regulations their clients will encounter.
  • Is experienced and has a record of success.
  • Is someone other lawyers make referrals to due to their knowledge, expertise, and accomplishments.
  • Is someone who thinks creatively and explores all options for their clients.

“I provide representation that is both personal and professional,” Lantzy said. “My clients quickly understand I will aggressively handle their case with integrity, while maintaining a direct line of personal communication.”

A member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Lantzy’s recent notable case was a $9 million resolution achieved on behalf of four autistic children and their families. The children suffered abuse at the hands of registered behavioral technicians who were supposed to be teaching the children valuable life skills.

“The children were nonverbal, and I became their voice,” said Lantzy, who is a member of the American Bar Association, the Michigan Association for Justice, and the Macomb County Bar Association.

“Bob is very deserving of this distinction,” Buckfire Law President Lawrence Buckfire said. “He has a proven track record of significant trial verdicts and fighting for his clients. He is an asset to our firm and the community.”

Some of Lantzy’s notable settlements and verdicts include:

  • $3,350,000: Fatal truck accident lawsuit.
  • $3,000,000: Sex abuse case.
  • $1,800,000: Motorcycle accident case.
  • $1,500,000: Fatal auto accident case.
  • $1,300,000: Law mower injury case.
  • $1,000,000: Pedestrian wrongful death case.
