  • "Thank God we found him. He really seemed to care about our family."
    Mr. Buckingham won our case after two other law firms said it would be impossible to win. He knew the medicine better than the experts in the case. I guess the fact that he’s also a doctor was a great help.
    Former Client
  • "He truly was impressive."
    Mr. Buckingham flew to the East Coast several times & understood how a correct gall bladder surgery is supposed to be done better than the surgeon. He was very knowledgeable & precise.
    Former Client
  • "If you want real-life heroes contact these guys. They cared when no one else did."
    When I first contacted Mr.Vega, I knew he was different because he listened to me with compassion. Mr. Vega and his team gave me hope and most important they gave my son a better life.
    Former Client
  • "Adrian Vega and his law firm changed my family's life."
    They fought for my injured baby and made sure we would be taken care of for the rest of our lives. I highly recommend this law firm.
    Former Client
  • "My family is better off having them in our corner."
    We turned to him when we had nowhere else to go. Turns out it was the best decision we could have ever made. They represented us in a difficult case and made those responsible accountable for their actions.
    Former Client
  • "Nothing but the best of the best."
    This was an experience I'll never forget and felt like family and not a business associate. Adrian kept me informed and up to date on all matters of the lawsuit. Needless to say, I received more ( much more ) than expected...
    Former Client
  • "Very professional firm and well knowledgeable!"
    I would highly recommend using Buckingham & Vega if you have been injured in an accident. Very professional firm and well knowledgeable!
    Former Client
  • "Highly Recommend"
    We had a great experience working with Adrian. He was very professional and guided my family through a difficult situation.
