Deena Buchanan

Founding Partner



Attorney Deena Buchanan has handled trucking crash cases, wrongful death, catastrophic injury, and employment cases in more than 20 jurisdictions. As former BigLaw and in-house counsel to a Fortune 500 company, she traveled the country advising corporate executives and litigating multi-million dollar disputes for insurance companies and large corporations. After seeing some very sad results in tragic cases, she left her defense career to represent real people and their families. Now she teaches other lawyers about how to take on these big companies using her training and experience from the other side.

She has a personal, as well as professional, understanding of personal injury claims, having been a victim of someone else’s negligence herself.

Deena is board-certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in trucking crash cases, making her one of the first few women in the nation to achieve that honor. She’s served as trial counsel on a number of high-profile, complex cases, including wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims. She’s a highly respected trial attorney, earning praise from clients, colleagues and judges for her skill in the courtroom.

Deena spends her free time with her family unwinding in the beautiful outdoors – hiking, skiing, scuba diving, and photographing nature.
