  • Eric John Buckvar

    I endorse this lawyer. He is a renowned expert in the area of motorcycle accidents - and I have used Mitch's article on trying motorcycle cases for my own cases. There is a lot of misunderstanding and negativity about motorcycle riders, and Mitch has been in the forefront of educating people about the unfair treatment of them. Not to mention that he is an excellent trial attorney.
