Volunteer Counsel for Community Health Center of Franklin County.

Over the course of his career, Buz has handled many complex civil and criminal litigation, including a substantial number of civil cases that resolved with 6- and 7-figure recoveries. Because of his deep commitment to due process and the notion that access to the halls of justice should not depend on one's ability to pay, since 1981 he has devoted a significant portion of his practice representing those who otherwise could not afford to pay, without compensation. By way of example, Buz was a member of the defense team in State v. Blanks, a Georgia death penalty case. That case ended when the Federal Courts vacated the death penalty imposed by the State of Georgia. As a result, a young man's stay on death row ended.

Buz currently represents a 21 year old Saudi who has been detained in Guantanamo Bay by the U.S. military since he was 17 years of age. Abdul-Salam Gaithan Mureef Al-Shihry v. Bush, et al. was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in early 2005. Weinberg & Garber has added its name to some of the most prestigious firms in the country and indeed the world, who have also provided counsel in an effort to insure due process and fair conditions of confinement to detainees worldwide. Buz is also currently a plaintiff in a lawsuit, filed in February of 2006, challenging the right of the government to engage in electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens without a warrant.
