KCMBF’s Military Matters is proud to shine the June & July #ProBonoSpotlight on Larry S. Buccero of Law Offices of Buccero & VanFleet, LLC!
Larry has been a volunteer attorney for Military Matters since 2020. He was informed by another attorney that joining the Military Matters program fulfills an attorney’s requirement to be on the Juvenile Appointment Roster within Jackson County. Larry appreciated the opportunity to join Military Matters, as it allows him to give back to those in need within his regularly practiced areas of the law.
Larry has enjoyed working with the veterans and service members who have been matched to him through Military Matters, noting, “I welcome working with those folks.” Larry has found these clients are usually very respectful and they listen and take advice very well. He has accepted Military Matters referrals from clients all the way from Warrensburg to downtown Kansas City, to Johnson County, MO. Larry’s father-in-law served in the Navy and he has a son-in-law who served in the Marines, as well.
Growing up, Larry looked up to his grandfather who was an attorney and it inspired him to pursue a career in the law. Larry graduated from UMKC School of Law and immediately began working with the Clay County Prosecutor’s Office. After serving with that office for 17 years, in 2004 he started his own firm where he practices family and criminal law. At the Law Offices of Buccero & VanFleet, LLC, they enjoy having the ability to provide low cost and pro bono work for those in need.
Outside of work, Larry is an avid golfer, and according to his wife perhaps too much of a golfer! His oldest son currently works in the field of business and finance, and his younger son just graduated from the University of Missouri in May – and is planning to attend law school. Larry also has seven step-children and five grandkids. Outside of playing golf and spending time with family, he and his wife love to travel when they have the opportunity.
Larry says, “This program is fantastic, especially because you are dealing with [cases] in the area of law that you practice.” He finds that the veterans and service members matched to him through Military Matters “are good folks and good people. You want to help them and do well by them.” He and his staff have found veterans and service members to be very respectful and appreciative. He would encourage other attorneys to consider volunteering in this program!
Thank you, Larry, for your dedication to KCMBF’s #MilitaryMatters and to giving back!
