    34 years

I have been practicing law in North Carolina since 1990 and am admitted to practice before the U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. District Court for the Middle District and Western District of North Carolina.

 

Before I began representing injured people in the mid-1990's, I worked for an insurance defense firm in Greensboro.   In that role, I gained considerable experience in injury litigation and wrongful death.  This experience is invaluable now as I take on the insurance companies in my representation of the injured. 

 

I have a wife, Carla and a son and daughter.

This law firm far exceeded my expectations. Mr. Buchanan, Kathy Willets and Kelly Weaver worked diligently to obtain all the records and documentation needed for my favorable judgement . I appreciate that kind of dedication and diligence. Mr. Buchanan knows the system, is very professional and helped ease my angst. These folks are kind and I believe care about what they do. I would recommend them every single time.

Mr. Buchanan has more strengths than just his areas of expertise listed. My agency has requested Brian year after year because he is the only attorney we trust to handle our difficult cases. I appreciate the respect he has earned in the courtroom with other attorneys and judges. I feel confident that people listen when my attorney speaks on my behalf. He always comes across as the most knowledgeable in the courtroom. The countless hours of preparation are obvious when he argues my case and proves the opposition wrong. He is easy to approach and is able to shift and flex from minute to minute in the extreme environment of the courtroom without any sign of distress. He can have a comfortable conversation with me without making me feel judged or embarrassed and then just as easy fit the role the judge needs and come across as the best lawyer in the courtroom. I have picked Brian Buchanan for many reasons and he represents my agency in every case I have. His passion for representing what he believes in has touched many people in the courtroom and is most likely why I never lose any case. I'm proud to say we hired Mr. Buchanan and more proud of his commitment to the underrepresented and fighting for what is right.
