Jeremy J. Buckmaster

Mr. Buckmaster was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He moved to Florida in 1988. He attended the University of Florida and received a Bachelor's of Arts in Political Science. Mr. Buckmaster went on to obtain his law degree from the University of Florida, Levin College of Law.


Mr. Buckmaster began his legal career as an Assistant State Attorney in the 19th Judicial Circuit of Florida in Fort Pierce, Florida. While there, he prosecuted thousands of criminal cases in both county and circuit court. After leaving the State Attorney’s office, he joined a private criminal defense firm where he spent two years representing hundreds of individuals charged with crimes in State and Federal Courts.

Mr. Buckmaster later moved his family to Daytona Beach and returned to the State Attorney's Office in the felony division of the 7th Judicial Circuit of Florida.

Mr. Buckmaster is admitted to the Florida Bar, and is licensed to practice in front of the United States District Court for the Middle District and Southern Districts of Florida and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
