We make ourselves available to you, our client, to help answer questions and assist in any way we possibly can.


Buckley Patterson, PLLC was cofounded by John Buckley and Phillip Patterson to protect the rights of victims injured due to another’s negligent or reckless acts. After years of practicing in a large nationwide personal injury law firm, John and Phillip realized that many lawyers and firms had lost track of what they were fighting for: the client. At Buckley Patterson, PLLC, you are more than a number. You, the client, are what matters most to us. Your health, your family, your rights. Our firm’s core values are built upon customer service and we pride ourselves on treating our clients like family.

The Buckley Patterson, PLLC team understands that injury victims and their families face hardships following these incidents. Victims of negligent or reckless actions often sustain life-altering injuries and have nothing to fall back on and no one to help them through the troubling times that follow. These injuries often have many rippling effects throughout the victim and their family’s lives. A victim does not ask to be hurt, they are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when another’s negligent or reckless actions end up costing them dearly. If you were injured by a wrongdoer’s negligent or reckless actions, then you should not have to direct your physical and mental strength to dealing with big insurance companies and stressing over your medical and financial well-being.  Rather, you need the ability to focus on your health and returning your life to what it was prior to the injury.

It is no secret that when a person is injured by another person’s negligence or recklessness, the wrongdoer will do anything to avoid properly compensating the person they hurt. Wrongdoers often deflect, hide from, and possibly deceive innocent victims to avoid properly compensating the person for their injuries. The cards are stacked against the victim; so, this is not a fight to take on alone – from day one the Buckley Patterson, PLLC, team will fight to protect you and your case.

Having practiced in a large nationwide personal injury firm, John and Phillip are well-versed in the immersive and immediate investigations required to develop a solid foundation for your case. While your attorneys work in the background, we are also in constant communication with you to ensure all injuries are addressed and that you are on the path to physical, mental, and financial recovery.
