About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

Hello!!   I am Brian Buckmeier.  I will strive to give you the best possible outcome in your matter.  I handle all varieties of legal issues and litigation matters including trial work in criminal law, personal injury and family law.  I have been practicing law for almost 30 years in Iowa and Nebraska.  I have handled over 1000 personal injury cases in that time frame from start to finish.  I deal with complex injury and death cases and even smaller traffic collison cases.  I deal with insurance adjusters, who will try to settle the case with you as quickly as possible in order to save their company as much money as possible.  Often times,  personal injury attorneys can get the most compensation for a client's injuries by handling the case from early on to completion.   I would be happy to discuss your personal injury case with you at no cost.  I handle these cases on a contingency fee amount of 33 1/3 % of the total recovery in your matter.

I have handled numerous criminal defense cases including Class A Murder and B felonies in Iowa and Murder defense in Nebraska.  I also am counsel on numerous misdemeanor matters including OWI/DUi defense in Iowa and Nebraska.  I have had good results in my cases over the years and am not afraid to take your case to court if that is what is warranted.  I handle these cases on an hourly rate of $200 per hour. 

I also handle many family law matters including divorce/dissolution in Iowa and Nebraska.  Modifications of visitation, custody and child support situations.  I handle these matters on a hourly rate of $200 per hour.

I also have handled complex business litigation, will/estate contests, contractor litigation and many other lawsuits over the years.  Please give me a call at and set up an appointment to talk with me.  Thank you!!!!

Not Guilty
Brian and his paralegal, Chris are caring and wonderful! He defended me on a criminal matter that I didn't do and Brian took the matter to trial. He believed in me the whole way and the jury came back with a not guilty verdict and proved my innocence.

Brian Helped me on short notice
I was in a jam at one point in my life. I contacted Brian. He instantly jumped to my defense and handled the difficult matter with discretion and poise. If you are ever in a jam and need help, Brian Buckmeier would be a good choice.
