I definitely recommended him. He is sharp and wiling to go the extra mile. We got everything that we asked for. In my eviction of my tenant, she was out the day that we asked for. He has helped in both my divorce and my landlord/tenant cases and I would hire him again.

Bob has represented me for several years and I would use him again if I needed an attorney. He always made himself available when I had questions and needed advice. He was wise, honest, and sincerely looked out for my interests. He told me the truth and never "sugar-coated" anything. He was absolutely able to fight hard all the while remaining cool and calm and represent me well. I believe that he is esteemed by his peers and sincerely enjoys helping people.

I had a meeting with Bob today regarding a landlord tenant lease. He allowed me to voice my concerns and problems, and then proceeded to advise me on what the required things on the document were. He was patient with me asking probably far too many questions. He is intelligent and held true to his word of the free consultation. I highly recommend him to anyone I know.

Mr Puckett appears to have established a life long practice in St, Joseph, MI. His practice is serving those in need of competent legal advice. He has been able to sustain his practice , by dispensing quality advice to his clients. After reading his reviews, one can be assured, of his commitment to the best interests of his clients. I would endorse this lawyer, and should the opportunity arise, to have a matter on the west side of the state, refer to him without reservation.
