5.0 stars 30 totalReview Kathleen Buckley-O'Neill
Kathy is wonderful. She is hard working, honest, and fair. She truly cares about her clients. If you need a divorce attorney look no further Kathy is the best choice.
Kathy took care of my divorce in a very efficient and effective manner. She controlled the situations (and me sometimes) to make sure that I got the best result that I could in the circumstance. Divorce is awful. But she got me through this one efficiently and with little fuss so I can start moving on.
I met Kathleen during the most difficult time in my life. I selected Kathleen because of her excellent reputation in the Flint area professional community. She represented me in ending a marriage that spanned over three decades. I had no experience with attorneys or the legal system. Kathleen calmly walked me through each step of the process. She took time to understand my goals and worked diligently to achieve them. Kathleen is very realistic and her straightforward approach inspired my confidence. She collaborated with me often and gave me firm direction when I needed it. Kathleen does not pad her fees. She charges according to the actual time worked. The fees I paid were far less than I anticipated. Because of Kathleen I am no longer a victim. I survived and will someday thrive. Thanks Kathleen. You're the very best!
I was referred to Kathy from a good friend & it was the best decision that I could have made for my divorce proceedings. My case involved a bitter custody dispute with attempts to badger my character with lies & malice, from our initial consultation Kathy was upfront, insightful & methodical in how she/we would approach my case. She not only provided me with impeccable legal representation she also answered my technical legal questions without hesitation & provided me with worst & best case scenarios at each developmental stage of my case. Her eclectic style & savvy court room etiquette bodes well & was a tremendous plus. During this very stressful period she eased my tension with her confidence & legal knowledge, not only did she provide me with excellent legal representation she also challenged me to grow in the area of "emotional intelligence". I would not only recommend Kathy I would rather demand or insist if you want the best representation. I secretly deem her as the "The Pit Bull" of divorce attorneys, & I mean that in the most sincere affectionate manner...

I retained Kathy to handle my divorce. She was very up front explaining what the process would be, and what to expect moving forward. When we ended up going to court she was professional and informed as well as caring. You could tell she had my back. I would strongly recommend her to anyone going though a divorce. You won't find anyone better to protect your interest.

Upon entering Kathleens office after 5 years of court proceedings and 2 years of litigation, I had been on the defensive and was EXHAUSTED! You can immagine the mess I brought to Kathleen with being a highly intense custody case and as it currently continues.
Kathleen Buckley-Oneill hit the nail on the head during my consultation. I could not believe it! She is providing me with outstanding professional representation and I am no longer carrying the load. Immediate responses to all voicemails/emails even contact on weekends. The resources she has provided have been more than case specific, resulting positive life changes. Kathleen is pro-active, providing clear communication for all expectations of me, resulting in much needed confidence and relief. Her direct commitment and sharpness coupled with her genuine concern and comfort is exactly what I need for getting the job done! I highly recommend Kathleen Buckley-Oneill for counsel for your child custody case!

I retained Kathy to handle my very acrimonious divorce and child custody matter. It was a highly emotional spousal abandonment situation. Kathy understood that I needed to vent, and in return she offered valuable advice. If I could give Kathy more than 5 stars, I would.
While she's not the warm and fuzzy type, she really does have a heart of gold, and always looks out for her client. Even when I annoyed her by engaging in some drama with my ex, she maintained her professionalism and composure.
She has the sharpest legal mind in the room, and is steps ahead of opposing counsel, holding her arguments until just the right moment.
If you retain Kathy, the best advice I can offer, is to keep your emotions in check, and trust that she will do the best job she can for you.

The day I walked into Kathy's office, I was defeated, beaten down and afraid. After talking to her at my consultation, I realized she would have my back. She fought for me, and only had my well being as a focus. Although the process lasted much longer than I had hoped, it was entirely worth the wait. She is my hero and an amazing, intelligent, and tenacious professional! I owe her so much more than money, which she is worth every single penny. She was so brilliant and supportive in a way I never thought I deserved! Now, I have a future. If anyone ever asks me for a reference, Kathy gets my backing 100% plus!

I am very happy with the process of working with Kathleen Buckley-O'Neill for a child custody case. She was very upfront with me regarding expectations and requirements of the court. She was able to connect me and my children with really good and effective support and resources. It seemed like a long and tedious process but Kathleen was able to give me the encouragement to know that this was very much worth it. We were able to acheive a trial result that was very positive to me and that would benefit the children. I hired her based on recommendation of a friend and after I read her reviews on here. I was told that she is very direct but that is something that I appreciate. I don't seek out false comforts and it would not help my case to be misled about the legal system. To this end, I would recommend her and I would hire her again. As a matter of fact, I have hired her again to represent me for the appeal.

Kathleen was my second Attorney that I retained for my divorce. She came highly recommended by her colleagues. She has worked very hard for me in what has been a difficult divorce situation for me. She is VERY prompt at responding to my emails/phone calls. She has returned my calls even after business hours and replied to emails afterhours and weekends. I do not believe you will find another attorney that can out work her. She has gone above and beyond by not only representing me as client but also listening to me as a person as I struggled through a difficult situation. I have already recommended her to other people and will continue to recommend her to anybody that needs an attorney. I felt that my previous counsel was out worked and always on the defensive. Since retaining Kathleen that is no longer the case. I know she is not being out worked and I no longer feel that I am reacting to situations but being pro active to settle my case. She is an aggressive pro active attorney that has helped me out tremendously. She definitely will fight for her clients and I am glad she was able to take my case. Outstanding lawyer that I would retain again if I ever had to.
