Bill has handled many legal issues for me over the many years I have known him. In most cases, he has figured out a way to AVOID a lawsuit and figuring out my best options. He takes a very practical approach in applying the law to any situation. Although he is a fabulous litigator (as evidenced by his experience and successes), he has been best at giving me good advise when needed, and knowing when to pick a fight or when to exit gracefully.

Bill was our lifesaver in a TM dispute. I honestly do not know what we would have done without him. We would have lost our life's work. In court he was aggressive but not egotistical. At no time was it about him, it was always about us.
He helped us get through our depositions and didn’t hold back when he knew I was starting to fold under the pressure. He reassured me and kept me strong while being deposed. With his help, I made it through!
Bill is an honorable man and for two people who trusted no one, we knew that Bill Buus was indeed someone we could always trust.
We still retain him as our Atty. and really thank God for Bill saving our livelihood! We are so ever indebted to him.
Eric Schiffer, Litigation Attorney
Bill is one of the finest lawyers I know. Bill is detail-oriented, intelligent, and understands client expectations. He is the person I always call when I need to consult on a case. I am proud to call him my law partner, and even prouder to call him my friend.
