Roy Buckmaster


Roy Buckmaster's Headshot

Roy Buckmaster, driven by a commitment to give a voice to the voiceless, discovered his true calling as a prosecutor. Realizing that he could further serve people as a civil litigator, he joined Arnold & Itkin, where he continues to champion the rights of those who need it most. His transition reflects his dedication to impactful legal advocacy and his desire to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others through the law.

“At Arnold & Itkin, we are just different—in all the best ways. We are relentlessly dedicated to our craft and our client’s cause. The results are manifested in the lives of those we help and ultimately speak for themselves.”


Attorney Roy Buckmaster doesn’t just view his legal career as a job; he knows it’s his life’s calling. Roy finds fulfillment every time he’s able to help people who are unfairly suffering because of circumstances they can’t control. When ordinary people face extraordinary challenges, Roy knows he can be the difference-maker they need.

Roy studied law at the University of Arizona and enjoyed working at the Child Family Law Clinic. Here, he had the opportunity to represent the interests of children during child protection proceedings. While at school, Roy studied hard to remain on the Dean’s List. He also participated in the Veteran’s Clinic, the Volunteer Lawyers Program, the American Inn of Court, and the Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law. He clerked for a respected litigation firm in Tucson.

Roy didn’t waste time getting into the courtroom after graduating from law school in 2014. He served as a criminal prosecutor throughout Arizona, including agencies in Yavapai County and the Prescott. During his time as a prosecutor, Roy excelled at being the voice victims needed during legal proceedings. Roy managed hundreds of challenging cases. He was the guide and counselor that those suffering from crimes needed during the entire court process.

Over the last two years, Roy has changed his focus from criminal law to civil litigation. This transition makes sense as working in civil litigation allows Roy to apply the same passion for helping others that he used while working as a prosecutor. His trial skills and focus on pre-litigation strategy have made him a welcomed member of the Arnold & Itkin family. He uses them to help clients get the results they need after they’ve lost so much.

Roy lives in Heber Valley, Utah with his wife and three children. By wakeboarding and snowboarding during his free time, he always finds a way to jump on a board no matter what season it is!
