  • Chad David Engelhardt

    Honor, integrity, dedication to his clients, committed to justice. Rob Buchanan embodies these principles. He is one of the finest medical malpractice trial lawyers in the nation. Rob's knowledge of medicine and exceptional trial skills enable him to handle the most complex cases and achieve outstanding results. Rob is often consulted by other lawyers on their most challenging cases, and is a frequent lecturer in continuing legal education. Rob has assembled a team of superior quality and has the resources to challenge the largest hospitals and insurance companies. He is well known for handling catastrophic injury cases and obtaining results that allow his clients and their families to live the best life possible after a doctor or other person's negligence. I strongly endorse Rob, personally and professionally.

  • Michael R. Bartish

    I endorse this lawyer. The highest compliment any attorney can give another attorney is to refer clients to him or her. For medical malpractice issues, there is no attorney or firm more dedicated, more experienced, or more knowledgeable than Robert Buchanan. I refer all my medical malpractice clients to Rob and his firm because I know that they will be in the best of hands.
