Michigan Dog Bite Law Firm

Our law firm was founded in 1969 by my father, David Buckfire (1934-2012), based upon his principle of representing clients with dignity, professionalism, and perfectionism. In 1979, he was joined by his wife (and my mother) Vicky Buckfire, who returned to law school after a successful teaching career. Our practice grew in 1989 when I joined the law firm and again in 1992 after my brother Daniel L. Buckfire passed the Michigan bar exam.

The four of us worked together every day for almost two decades handling dog bite and injury cases for people just like you. My brother and I were fortunate to learn our profession from our parents, who were both outstanding trial attorneys. They taught us the importance of paying attention to every possible detail of a case and that the best prepared attorneys win the big cases.

We added several other very fine and talented personal injury  lawyers to our firm. Click on the name of any attorney to read their professional biography.
