MIAMI, FL (December 8, 2015) – Veteran trial lawyers David M. Buckner and Seth E. Miles announce the formation of their new Miami-based law firm, Buckner + Miles. The firm will draw on the founders’ extensive and unmatched experience in the areas of catastrophic personal injury, class action, medical malpractice, aviation, and qui tam litigation.

Prior to forming the firm, both Buckner and Miles worked as partners at the preeminent plaintiffs’ law firm Grossman Roth, where they successfully recovered more than $1 billion for their clients in their 10 years with the firm.

As a result of their stellar litigation record, both Buckner and Miles have been honored over the years by the Daily Business Review as a “Most Effective Lawyer.”

“We are excited about the opportunity to open our firm and continue to expand our personal injury, class action and qui tam litigation business,” said co-founding partner David M. Buckner. “At our core, we are trial lawyers who love nothing more than to zealously, energetically and ethically fight for our clients in state and federal courts across the country,” added co-founding partner Seth E. Miles.

Buckner, a former Assistant United States Attorney, represents corporations and individuals in matters involving complex commercial and class action litigation, securities and other frauds, business torts, antitrust law, white collar crime, personal injury, products liability, aviation accidents and qui tam. He earned his B.A., with high honors, from Rutgers College, his J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School and his Master of Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Miles, also a former Assistant United States Attorney, focuses his practice on personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, maritime, class action, commercial tort and qui tam cases. He serves on the Southern District of Florida’s Bar Grievance Committee, the Florida Bar’s Constitutional Judiciary Committee and the Florida Supreme Court’s Civil Jury Instruction Committee.
