  • Jack Enrique De La Piedra

    Virginia is one of those genuinely good souls who doesn't put on airs or pretend to be someone she's not. She has one of the most impressive professional resumes I've ever read, but you would never know it just talking to her because that is the kind of person she is. I could not proffer a higher endorsement of her.

  • James Chase

    I have worked with Virginia Buchanan on many wrongful death cases. She is a very caring and compassionate attorney and takes the best interest of her client to heart. I would not only use Virginia if the need arose personally, but I highly recommend her if you are in need of this type of legal service.
