Patrick “Rick” Buntz was cut out to become an attorney from the very beginning. He loved to question things as a youngster and had the necessary ability for verbal jousting. A founding shareholder of McCumber, Daniels, Mr. Buntz, and his colleagues stand up to the bullying and intimidating tactics of rival lawyers in the areas of insurance, professional liability (including licensing/Administrative), hospital and medical malpractice, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home care, and premises liability. Their combined experience and expertise in these areas of practice are an essential part of making their clients feel truly represented.

Mr. Buntz has had a remarkable professional career – and continues to remain actively involved in the firm. He has been a member of the United States Supreme Court, Florida Bar, U.S. Middle District of Florida, American Bar Association, Defense Research Institute, Risk and Insurance Management Society, Florida Defense Lawyers Association, and the Hillsborough County Bar Association. He earned his Doctor of Law from Stetson University College of Law in 1990.

When not vigorously defending his clients, Mr. Buntz de-stresses by running, kayaking, and spending time with his family. A firm believer in community involvement, he is an ardent supporter of the U.S. military troops and their families through various groups, the American Cancer Society, and has frequently volunteered at the Circle of Love for Grieving Children at LifePath Hospice and Palliative Care of Tampa.
