Claimed Lawyer Profile

Anne Buckleitner puts her more than 30 years in government and law to work for clients in the areas of civil rights, employment law, criminal defense, facilitative mediation and neutral workplace investigations. She litigates in both federal and state courts. Anne is an accomplished litigator and counselor, an experienced problem solver, and a strong advocate. Through negotiation, litigation, and mediation, Anne identifies and obtains the best possible results for her clients. Anne makes good communication with her clients a priority.

Anne was born and raised in St. Joseph, Michigan. She spent the first chapter of her career working for the federal government in Washington, D.C. – primarily on national security law and issues for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She was awarded the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement from the Director for Central Intelligence for her work in intelligence analysis. Upon leaving the government, she developed a private practice with an emphasis on civil rights, employment law, and criminal defense.

Anne practiced for many years as a partner in Smietanka, Buckleitner, Steffes & Gezon in Grandville, Michigan. In 2019, she returned to her St. Joseph roots, joining Conybeare Law Office to develop civil rights and employment law practice areas for the firm.

She and her husband have two grown daughters. Anne is active in community events, and was on the executive board of Hospice at Home (now known as Spectrum Health Lakeland Caring Circle) for 16 years.
