Don Poynter
Don Poynter did everything to help us get something from our insurance company when they refused to pay us. He was professional and always got back to me in a timely manner. I definitely recommend him if you ever need help in a personal injury case!

Very professional!
Don was awesome to work with. He was very calm and patient even though we had a lot of questions for him. We were a little stressed out about what it was going to take to get our partnership agreement and liability waiver, but Don put them together very efficiently and much quicker than we expected. We were also very impressed with the quality of the documents and his ability to explain everything we were unsure about in layman’s terms. We were completely satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend Don and Poynter & Bucheri to anyone. Dante and Keith

Car accident
Hired them to deal with the insurance companies that were trying to screw me over. They took care of everything, got me a good, fast settlement. I would highly recommend them.

Did a bang up job. Great attorney
When the insurance carrier had a lying witness against me and the other driver was at fault Donald still got me a judjement.

A pleasure to deal with turned a bad situation in to something less stressful
I have used this law office and all of the staff for both personal and business. They have helped me in a personal injury case. He has helped with legal matters for both the business and personal.

Great Legal Service!
Mr. Poynter did a fantastic job on my case. He handled everything in a fast and efficient manner. He always made sure our best interest was put first and he kept us informed! His staff was always helpful and pleasant to speak to! I would recommend him to any and everyone who needs trustworthy and honest legal representation!

The best lawyer in Indianapolis!
Don is always honest with me and if he doesn't have the answer he gets back to me quickly with the answer. Don also doesn't over-charge me for every little thing he does (like a lot of lawyers will do!) and has set rates for a lot of things that are very reasonable. I appreciate having someone like Don fighting on my side!
