Our Michigan drunk driving accident attorneys work hard to ensure our clients feel welcomed and secure with our legal representation. Below you will find reviews and testimonies from real former clients who were willing to share their experience with our law firm.


I suffered major injuries when I was hit by a drunk driver near Lansing, Michigan.  The driver crossed the center line and hit me head on.  The next thing I knew I was in the hospital and I remained there for many months trying to recover from my injuries.  My family found Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. on the internet and called them to learn more about my rights.  Attorney Robert Lantzy came out to the hospital and met with my daughter within a day of our phone call.  She was so impressed with him that she hired the firm right on the spot.

Mr. Lantzy started working on the case immediately.  He tracked down eyewitnesses and even found out where the woman who hit me had been drinking.  He even subpoenaed her credit card bills, the bar records, and bar surveillance video.  We were amazed at how hard he was investigating my case.  In addition, he helped with getting all of my medical bills and no-fault insurance benefits paid.

We filed a lawsuit against the drunk driver and it moved quickly.  I was surprised when Mr. Lantzy called to tell me that he was able to get the insurance company to pay the full $ 500,000.00 insurance limits to me.  Everything was handled in a first class manner and we were kept updated every step of the way.  I am grateful that we found the law firm and Mr. Lantzy and that we chose them for my case.

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.

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 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.

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!
