I met Drake on the first day of law school and our friendship grew quickly and deeply from there. I credit him with helping me overcome my fear of public speaking, and consequently saving my legal career before it even had a chance to begin! Drake is one of the most creative and charismatic people I've ever known. Both excellent qualities in a trial attorney! In fact, I believe my own courtroom style was subconciously modeled on his. Although I've never had the opportunity to work with Drake in the real world, I have spoken with him about cases on numerous occasions, and it is clear to me that his brilliance and work ethic have not faded in the least since law school. I have often turned to him for advice or to bounce an idea off of him, and he has never failed me. I would recommend Drake in a heartbeat for any type of legal issue, with full confidence in his abilities.

I have worked with Drake on several matters, including a several day jury trial on a serious criminal matter. Drake is one of the best attorneys I have had the good fortune to work with over my 20 year career. He is focused on the task at hand and protects the client at all costs. I wholeheartedly endorse Drake and Buckman and Buckman.
