Professional Sports & Athlete Attorneys in San Diego, CA
Buche & Associates, P.C. provides legal services for professional athletes. The firm is based in San Diego, but we represent athletes across the country in matters of business ventures, and for injuries and disabilities sustained from playing.
As an athlete, your legal challenges can be unique. While highly paid, many athletes suffer from debilitating injuries received while playing that can last a lifetime. These injuries can include not only personal physical injuries, such as chronic traumatic brain injuries, but also financial injuries that are the result of scams that target highly compensated athletes.
We help athletes seek compensation for these injuries. In other cases, athletes will simply need honest, objective, and confidential advice about proposed business deals.

With decades of combined experience, our team at Buche & Associates, P.C. is dedicated to helping our clients to achieve their best possible outcome no matter if they are battling debilitating injuries or negotiating an important business deal.
