Roy Buckmaster found that the best part of his job as a prosecutor was giving a voice to the voiceless. Eventually, he found that he could fulfill that role even better as a civil litigator.
“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.”



Roy Buckmaster finds real joy in advocating for people who have been victimized by things outside of their control. At the University of Arizona, his favorite coursework was with the Child of Family Law Clinic representing the interests of children in child protection proceedings. Consistently on the Dean’s List, Roy excelled in law school participating in the Veteran’s Clinic, the Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law, the Volunteer Lawyers Program, the American Inn of Court, and clerking for a prestigious Tucson litigation firm.

After graduating in 2014, Roy chose to quickly get into the courtroom and was a criminal prosecutor for various agencies in Arizona, including Yavapai County and the City of Prescott. Roy excelled in this role as the voice for victims. He managed hundreds of complex cases from charging through trial and was often a guide and a counselor for those who suffered from the effects of devastating events like domestic violence and sexual abuse.

For the last two years, Roy has transitioned his focus to civil litigation—though his passion for relentlessly representing victims has only grown brighter. Roy’s trial skills and understanding of pre-litigation strategy have made him a valuable contributor with Arnold & Itkin—helping those who have been injured by the negligent, reckless, or intentional acts of others.

Roy lives with his wife Elliot and three children in the beautiful Heber Valley, Utah, where he snowboards in the winter and wakeboards in the summer.
