Honest, smart and trustworthy...
Better than 5 stars. Mr. Buck's honesty easily puts him at the top of the lawyers I consulted with who either wanted their retainer without explaining what course of action they recommended and/or did not get a firm handle on my nuanced situation which a one size fits all action would not resolve. Mr. Buck asked a good number of questions that no other lawyer had before, recommending the best course of do nothing at this time. If and when the time is right however, I will seek Mr. Buck's counsel again and most definitely hire him. It's about honesty and trust.
