Attorney Melanie Buckmaster

You’re tired. You’re frustrated. Yet, they’re still dragging out what should have been an easy decision to do the right thing. That’s when I step in.

I can’t guarantee your case will be short, but I can guarantee I’ll be relentless as we fight for what you deserve.

I remember the moment it all clicked. Law wasn’t just my passion; I was good at it. Really good. And it meant I could use my skills to stand as an advocate for those who needed it most. The decision to become a lawyer was hardly a decision at all.

I spent years studying the system and digging into the details of the most complicated cases. You’d be surprised just how many tactics insurance companies can use to delay rightful compensation — but now, I know exactly what to expect and I put my insider knowledge to work for you.

From day one, I work to give back what the insurance companies took from you: stability, a sense of control, a belief in fairness, a chance to rest. And when they try to slow things down, I stay quick on my feet to keep our case moving. You’ve spent enough time hurting. You and your family deserve the space to heal.

They may have tried to push you around, but that ends when I join your team. It’s our turn to put the pressure on.
