Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is a personal injury firm founded on the principles of compassion, professionalism, and perfectionism; as well as educating others and providing individuals with educational opportunities. Since 2014, Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. has annually selected a student for their Disability Scholarship Program and their attorneys work with families on birth injury, brain injury, and accident cases. Now our attorneys are looking to give back to the community in a new way, through the Special Empowerment Hero Award. Education is one of the cornerstones of society and as such, it is important to support those individuals that dedicate their lives to educating others!

The Special Empowerment Hero Award is a way for our attorneys to help local special education teachers and workers that strive to help their students succeed. By creating curriculum and coursework tailored to individual differences and needs, these teachers and workers are providing their students with the invaluable opportunity to learn and grow. Through this award, Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. will award a $250 cash prize to the winner as well as a $250 donation to the school, organization, or nonprofit of the winner’s choice. Buckfire & Buckfire will also provide a pizza party for up to 25 people within 30 days of our winner announcement. Two winners have been chosen and the final winner will be chosen on June 3rd.
