Drake is a conscientious person and a knowledegable attorney. He's a great counsellor to have working for you. His costs are reasonable; and he will tell you the truth whether that's what you want to hear or not. He's experienced in writing Wills and setting up trusts and estates. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Buckman is a highly-skilled Professional who expedited my case efficiently and effectively. He was ethical, knowledgeable, patient and thorough from start to finish. I could not have asked for anything more!
Dale Workman, Litigation Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I met Drake on the first day of law school and our friendship grew quickly and deeply from there. I credit him with helping me overcome my fear of public speaking, and consequently saving my legal career before it even had a chance to begin! Drake is one of the most creative and charismatic people I've ever known. Both excellent qualities in a trial attorney! In fact, I believe my own courtroom style was subconciously modeled on his. Although I've never had the opportunity to work with Drake in the real world, I have spoken with him about cases on numerous occasions, and it is clear to me that his brilliance and work ethic have not faded in the least since law school. I have often turned to him for advice or to bounce an idea off of him, and he has never failed me. I would recommend Drake in a heartbeat for any type of legal issue, with full confidence in his abilities.
Russell Kirshy, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have worked with Drake on several matters, including a several day jury trial on a serious criminal matter. Drake is one of the best attorneys I have had the good fortune to work with over my 20 year career. He is focused on the task at hand and protects the client at all costs. I wholeheartedly endorse Drake and Buckman and Buckman.
