I hired Mr Jeremy Buckmaster from a referral. My case lasted about four months. It’s the first for me. In four months, I never met Jeremy face to face, due to working long hours. Everything over phone or email. It was Terrifying. Jeremy stayed in constant contact with me , and ensured me, that everything would be ok. He did his job!! Very Confident, and professional!! Superb Lawyer. I saved his phone # in my contacts. Thank You So Much, Jeremy James

!The Best!
My family and I can not thank Mr. Buckmaster and his firm enough. We were involved in an accident. Everything happened very fast for us. The following day of the accident we met with Mr. Buckmaster and his staff. We had an appointment and were seen immediately. We got weekly updates every Friday from his paralegal Laney. Laney was professional, kind and very helpful. It was a pleasure dealing with her. I am typically not the person to leave a review. However, maybe someone reading this will help them make a decision to choose Mr. Buckmaster. We would highly recommend Mr. Buckmaster and his firm. Thanks for everything you guys did to help our family. We will never forget it..

Mr. Buckmaster scheduled a consult with me instantly. He was very friendly, understanding, and informative. His team always responded to my emails right away and answered all of my questions. They always called me as soon as they found out anything about my case, which I was very appreciative about. They worked hard and got my case dropped. I highly recommend! Very easy to talk to and no doubt in my mind about my case the whole way through

Excellent Service
I can highly recommend Jeremy Buckmaster to defend your case. His office was quick to respond to my initial call and an appointment was set up right away. Fortunately the criminal complaint made against me was frivolous but I was able to sleep much better with Jeremy in my corner. Thank you Jeremy.

Professional, Responsive, Knowledgeable, Excellent Team at the Buckmaster Firm!
When I went to speak with Mr. Buckmaster for my consultation, I truly didn’t know what to expect. I was a nervous wreck. Mr. Buckmaster put me at ease immediately with his words of wisdom. Once we finished with the consultation, I knew my legal situation was going to be in good hands with Mr. Buckmaster and Laney. The fee for Mr. Buckmaster service was more than fair. I was kept updated weekly with the process by Laney or Mr. Buckmaster. Hiring Mr. Buckmaster was a very wise decision! I would highly recommend his firm to anyone in need of their services!

Serious Charges
Hired Jeremy to represent my brother-in-law when he was arrested and was charged with a serious crime. Happy to say instead of him getting 25 years to possibly life he received 36 months. Great attorney and great staff. We are very grateful!

Absolutely Amazing Attorney and Staff!
I cannot say enough about the efficiency and compassion I experienced from working with Attorney Buckmaster and staff!! They walked me through everything that was going to happen! I was informed every step of the way! They advocated for me and had my case dismissed in just a few weeks! Then they took me through the expungement process and they were on top of things! Everything was done in just a few months!! I’m so thankful for them!! Hiring them was the best decision I made!!! Now I can move on with my life and not be afraid of the future!!

Mr. Buckmaster went above and beyond during my time of need. He accepted my case and reviewed all the pertinent details and came up with the best strategy for my case. His persistence and hard work provided me and my family with a solution that was better than expected. The entire team at Buckmaster and Ellzey were warm, friendly, and professional. I felt like I was heard and well represented. They were with me every step of the way to help me prepare and give me the peace of mind I was looking for during this trying time. i would highly recommend Buckmaster & Ellzey for superior representation!

Saved my skin, possibly my career as well
According to an attorney that practices in a similar field in South Florida, Mr. Buckmaster secured for me one of the fastest case dismissals that he's seen in his entire career.

Simply the BEST
I put myself in a position where I needed legal representation for a criminal offense. Jeremy Buckmaster handled my case with the utmost professionalism. His attention to detail, knowledge of the court system, and communication with me throughout my ordeal was second to none. His associate, Laney, kept me informed of any and all developments expeditiously. His fee was more than fair. All in all, choosing Mr. Buckmaster to represent me was a very wise decision. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone in need of a top notch lawyer. Simply the best.

Professional, personable, thorough
Mr. Buckmaster kept me informed through the entire legal process. His staff is equally professional and all have been wonderful during this time of stress. Attention to detail, along with appropriate communications made a difficult period all the better for his assistance. I recommend Mr. Buckmaster and his team for any appropriate legal concerns.

Great Attorney - Highly Recommend
I am completely satisfied with the work of Attorney Jeremy Buckmaster, his Legal Assistant, Laney Bates, and the results. Jeremy worked hard and smart to get only but the best results. Also standing out and most appreciated was the excellent communication, by phone, email, regular mail, and in person. I always knew what was going on in a timely and efficient manner. In addition, it was a plus to experience excellent reminders and follow-up work after the case.

Respectful, Responsive, and Reliable
Jeremy tracked me down when the state "lost" me taking me into custody, driving halfway across the state to only have to come back when they decided to let people know where they put me. He was calm and courteous at every stage of an amazingly stressful process, always taking time to let me know exactly what was going on. Even after the case was resolved in the eyes of the court, he helped with follow-up questions and concerns (expungement, retrieval of bail, etc.) quickly and professionally. The office support was amazing too.

An honest and supportive lawyer and human being
Attorney Buckmaster took our case at 1030 at night and represented us in court the next day at 8am! Against all odds, he helped get our child out of juvenile detention the same day. In less than a week a half, all charges were dropped. And while charges were dropped because there was no evidence of wrongdoing, without Jeremy's guidance, expertise, and knowledge of the local climate, things would have dragged on for much longer. Additionally, because our case wrapped up quickly, Attorney Buckmaster did not accept his full fee, though he had every right to. He and Alyssa worked hard and were successful in getting the arrest expunged. This is the best experience we could have hoped for given the circumstances and we couldn't be happier with our representation by this firm.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Jeremy and I worked on opposite sides of the courtroom many times while he was a prosecutor in Fort Pierce. He is a tenacious advocate who sees the merits of a case exactly as they are. He was a top-flight prosecutor, and has made the adjustment to top-flight defense attorney. Some ex-prosecutors just don't have the heart for defense work, because they think that everyone's guilty or that everyone who breaks the law is a scumbag. Jeremy's not like that at all. He understands that the police are quite often incompetent, or worse yet--flat out liars. He's willing to cross-examine a police officer or an alleged victim with one goal in mind--to shred them apart and win the case on behalf of his clients. If I were in trouble with the law in east central florida, Jeremy Buckmaster is the only guy I'd call."
