About the Firm


Our team represents real people injured by vehicle accidents or medical negligence. When you contact our firm, we give you a free evaluation and immediate answers.

Our clients always meet with the team that handles the claim. We never pass you down to an inexperienced attorney or send you off to another firm to make a commission, like those television or billboard lawyers do. And we work continuously on your case to win and do so at no additional cost to you. Using innovative technology and video documentaries, we show wrongdoers and their insurance companies that they must settle or risk losing. Our Grand Rapids injury lawyers are in it to win it for you.

Our Focus

We’ve been recognized nationally for successfully helping catastrophically injured people and families of those who have died because of the misconduct of others. We handle only severe accident and negligence cases. The people we choose to represent are honorable and deserving; they are the opposite of lawsuit abuse.

Unlike television and billboard lawyers, we treat our clients like family. We work closely with our clients, from the initial contact through final settlement or trial. We speak the right language, we select only the best cases, and know what we are doing. You’ve come to our firm’s website because you have important questions and are looking to hire the right team. If you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury or lost a loved one because of the misconduct of others, there is no question – we are the best team for you.


We captivate and hold the attention of juries, answering their questions and concerns, using high-definition video, computer animation, digital media, and the latest technology. We explain the medical issues in plain language and show the impact of disabling injuries to our clients. And, we talk to jurors as caring and intelligent humans, because they make decisions that will forever affect our clients’ lives.

We’ve learned not only to build powerful claims and to always arrive exceedingly well prepared, but also to present our clients’ cases in the clear, compelling manner they deserve. Because ultimately what matters isn’t what an attorney, doctor, or expert says. It’s what jurors comprehend – and believe.



Serious injury and death cases require exceptional attorney skill, knowledge, and experience. But that’s just half the equation. Cases involving catastrophic injuries or death from an accident or medical malpractice (such as brain injury, birth trauma, paralysis, disfigurement, severe burns, or wrongful death) require an experienced on-staff medical team to navigate the complexities.

At Buchanan Firm, we employ medical professionals who work closely with our experienced legal staff to protect and enforce your legal rights.


One of the most important decisions a person can make after suffering a traumatic injury or loss in the family is selecting the best legal team to help and guide them. The Buchanan team has compassionate people who know what you are going through and an exceptional success record in personal injury lawsuits. The firm’s managing partner, Robert Buchanan, is is President-Elect of the State Bar of Michigan, which licenses and regulates every attorney in Michigan.  There are over 46,000 of them. The State Bar of Michigan protects the public and promotes justice and fairness for everyone. Rob is also a professor of medical malpractice law for Western Michigan University College of Law.
