I owe the deepest gratitude to Charlie Buttrey, the most enthusiastic, positive, supportive injury attorney ever. He is a loving human being first, who shares me sentiment about seeking restitution without ruining another person’s life. Last June 2012, I was struck by a car while riding my bicycle. The driver was an 84-year-old man who made an illegal turn into my path and hit me without seeing me. I sustained serious injuries including two broken cervical vertebrae, a broken thumb, lacerations that required stitches on my knees, a lost tooth and a broken tooth, serious abrasions from head to toe, and the psycho-emotional stress of related recovery implications. I was forced to eliminate my athletic passions and was on bed rest wearing a neck brace for eight weeks. Charlie took the reins from the first moment I walked into his office following my hospital stay. He ensured that I was taken care of so that I could relinquish the stressful administrative, financial and legal tasks associated with my life-changing event. His support and presence played a significant role in the speed and positive mood of my whole experience.

  • When our daughter was injured by a drunk driver, we didn’t know what to do or who to turn to. A friend suggested that we contact Charlie. He was with us every step of the way and, in the end, we recovered more than we thought was possible. His ads say that he is ‘not just another lawyer,’ and that’s true. He wasn’t just a lawyer; he became our friend as well.

  • It took only a moment’s inattention by the surgeon to change our lives forever. Charlie understood us, he understood our needs, and he understood the legal issues around the case. The money we received will never take away the suffering we went through, but it went a long way to helping us heal. Thank you, Charlie!

  • The driver of the car says he never saw me, but he came out into the road without even looking. I was going at the speed limit, but I had no choice – I had to lay my bike down. I was in the hospital for four days, and out of work for three weeks. Charlie was there for me from the start. I’m still recovering, but I don’t have to worry about making sure that I have enough money to pay for my rehab or the bills that piled up when I was out of work. I’ll be back on my bike soon. Thanks, Charlie!

I was on my way to work when I was involved in a serious collision with a drunk driver. My car went over the guardrail and rolled, and I was knocked unconscious. I suffered a traumatic brain injury and a cervical fracture, and I was hospitalized for several days and was unable to return to work full-time for three months. I put my faith in Charlie. While I was engaged in the slow process of getting better, he was working tirelessly with two different insurance companies to make sure that I was compensated for my medical bills, my lost wages and my pain and suffering. Like any good lawyer, he was diligent and thorough. Unlike most lawyers, he treated me with both compassion and a gentle, and very welcome, sense of humor. I would not trade what I went through for ANY amount of money. But I am glad Charlie was there when I needed him.

  • Our daughter’s physical recovery from the accident was fairly uneventful, but she was emotionally fragile for a long time. We were so grateful to have had Charlie with us – he made sure that we were part of the process from the very beginning, and was never more than a phone call away. The settlement really put us at ease. He really is not just another lawyer!

  • Thankfully, the scars on our daughter’s face will eventually heal, and the mental trauma she suffered from the attack is slowly lessening. Charlie refused to stop fighting for us until the insurance company finally paid all of the money that we needed, to help us pay for her plastic surgery and counseling, and to compensate her for all of her pain and suffering. We are so grateful to Charlie for the work he did for us.

  • We bought a brand-new recliner chair for our father after he came home from the hospital following some surgery. The very first time he used it, the chair collapsed, and he was back in the hospital with serious injuries. Charlie took our case, hired an expert, discovered the defect, and promptly obtained a very good settlement from the manufacturer. We were glad to have him on our side.

  • The dog raced into the street before I even had a chance to react and even though I was wearing a helmet, I was knocked unconscious and got a broken leg and punctured leg. The days after the accident are simply a blur. Charlie was so patient and sympathetic while I recovered, but he was tireless and unyielding with the insurance company. He did a terrific job.

We are all aware of and thankful for the sacrifice and efforts made by the men and women who serve and fight for this Country to protect the freedoms we enjoy today. My personal thanks go out to anyone who has served our Country. My name is John E Sanville Jr. resident of Canaan, NH. I have lived in the Upper Valley all my life and I have a lot of immediate family members who live there as well. Within our legal system, we fight battles in local court rooms every day; court cases that sometimes determine our rights to our freedom. I can speak personally on this subject because of my own experience going through a lengthy court battle some years ago. This battle could have resulted in me losing my freedom for a very long time if I were found guilty of a crime I did not commit. Because the severity of what I was being accused of, I was put through the Superior Court, a branch of court I never had been familiar with. Thank God I was able to obtain Charlie Buttrey as an attorney. Throughout the length of time that it took to finally go to trial, Mr. Buttrey and his resourceful staff were nothing less than amazing. The process of going through the Superior Court branch was an eye opener; a situation that I had never had to deal with, and the overwhelming emotions that I went through were intense. Despite this, I always felt a sense of security each time I went to meet with Mr. Buttrey prior to going to trial. At the close of a three day trial sitting in front of a twelve person jury, it ended with a unanimous verdict of not guilty. Mr. Buttrey made believers out of my family and friends who went to court to support me. The legal system can and does work with the right person at the wheel. I owe a world of thanks to Charlie Buttrey and his team for everything they did for me, and I will always be forever grateful.
