Mr. Buscemi graduated law school cum laude and was both a member and editor of the Whittier Law Review.  He also was awarded multiple academic scholarships, in addition too, receiving several academic awards while pursuing his law degree.  

But it is Mr. Buscemi's background that his clients appreciate most and what makes him very different from other attorneys.  

After leaving the military as a U.S. naval officer, Mr. Buscemi began his civilian career as a U.S. federal agent, then transitioned to a California licensed private investigator, later a senior insurance adjuster and ultimately he found himself drawn to the field of law (now in his 20th year of legal practice).  

Thus, Mr. Buscemi has extensive investigative experience which he applies in every case.  

Thus, Mr. Buscemi's diverse background and experience as a senior attorney make him knowledgeable and a formidable opponent - which results in client satisfaction.
