Couldn't be happier
Eric is a very thorough and detailed attorney that you can trust. When I was involved in a car accident the insurance company refused to take my injuries seriously. I hired Mr. Buckner and I could not be more happier that I did. He explained every aspect of the case and got the case settled for much more than what the insurance company was initially offering. I was really happy with the result he was able to obtain for me.

Excellent attorney
As a former attorney, I can attest that all attorneys are not equal. Don't take a chance on your personal injury attorney. Just go with the best. I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Eric Buckner during my recent accident case. The whole office is very professional and attentive. You don't have to worry about them calling you back or fighting for you. Because Mr. Buckner is willing to go to court, he will be able to get you the best settlement you can get. I highly recommend Eric Buckner.

I was in a car accident back in 2016 and had no idea what to do as I had a previous attorney out of state that represented me for the past 3 years with no results and I was lost, confused and frustrated with the whole process UNTIL Eric stepped in and after talking to him about it on the phone he brought me right into his office and talked to me about everything and eased my mind. The office staff is extremely friendly and helpful!! Eric always made sure I knew what was going on and up to day with any change in my case. He made sure he called me himself to explain any question I ever had or to be sure I understood the next steps. I would recommend this law firm to anyone!!! Eric Buckner is the best!! Fast and professional service!!! Just wanted to tell him and Tonia his paralegal and the rest of the staff thank you all for all your help!!

Eric is not only a skilled lawyer who gets outstanding results for his clients, but he also maintains relationships with his clients long after the case is over. Unlike so many other lawyers, Eric realizes that the end of a legal claim doesn't necessarily mean the end of the suffering and grief which his clients might continue to experience long after the case is over. I do not hesitate to recommend anyone to him who might be in need of his services."

"I endorse this lawyer. Eric is an outstanding lawyer and more importantly an outstanding person. I have had the good fortune of working with Eric on several large cases as co-counsel. Eric showed incredible compassion for our clients and their families. He treated them like his own family. Even after the cases were over, Eric stay in close contact with these families. On the other side of the coin, Eric has incredible skills in the court room and in depositions. He has a unique ability to look at cases and develop a strategy for success. I was also very impressed with Eric's staff and other lawyers within his firm."
