Review for Robert J. Buchanan
Rob is the kind of lawyer who is compassionate and truly wants to understand the dynamics of your case. He kept on top of what needed to be done. He was efficient, responsible and definitely kept us informed as to what was happening on the case. If he needed information he immediately let us know. I have been frustrated before by attorneys putting off what needed to be done and by not returning phone calls. Rob was prompt with returning phone calls as soon as possible and never dodged the issue of what was happening on the case. Both he and his firm have my highest respect and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. He has the highest integrity which isn't always true with lawyers. He will treat his clients in the manner in which they deserve to be treated by a lawyer. Rob represents what a lawyer was meant to be - one who desires to help people.
