Karen Buckley handled my divorce. She was recommended by a coworker who had commented on her being able to handle the "bully" her ex had hired. My ex didn't hire a bully, but the vast income difference between the two of us, made me want to get someone on board who would look out for my interests without making excuses. After months of mediation, it became clear that I needed that. Karen was patient, clear, straightforward, laid out things how she saw them but always asked and respected my input, was available for any kinds of questions, and in the end, I think we got a fair divorce, if there is such a thing. I highly recommend her.
Karen was also able to connect me with a good financial adviser and gave advice about other services connected with starting a new single life after a long marriage.
What helped me, and this is probably not something that would help everyone, is that she had a good working relationship with my ex's lawyer. It kept the process civil, which was important to me.

Karen is an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. She is also honest, fair and kind. At the end of the divorce process, I realized that I was fortunate to have her as my lawyer. I strongly recommend her.

YOU NEED ATTORNEY KAREN M. BUCKLEY IN YOUR CORNER......
Karen is a professional straight shooter, with a real steady plan. Attorney Buckley continually advised me to treat my high conflict divorce as a business deal, and to keep any emotional feelings out- Karen also stressed to me to be sure that the issue(s) I was fighting for were worth the value of her pay rate. Additionally, Karen is a great listener, very savvy with math, and she is very well organized.
Karen helped me deal with a very high conflict divorce. A divorce that went from collaborative to litigation. This divorce involved children, a parenting plan, affidavits, an emergency hearing, DCF, GAL, division of marital property/ assets, and now a PC. To say working on all the above mentioned is overwhelming is an understatement!
One quality that impressed me the most about Karen was that she had the perfect balance of knowing when, where, and why to add any information. Whilst my ex- husbands atty. was constantly mud slinging- Attorney Buckley maintained her balance.
Attorney Buckley's delivery in front of the judge (and she was there many, times) was always awesome! Karen's physical presence, delivery, intonation, and voice quality were all sharp and professional--From what I witnessed in the court room- this is HUGE!
Let's stop stereotyping lawyers; Attorney KAREN M. BUCKLEY is trustworthy, and works FOR you; not just for your money.

I have referred several divorce matters to Karen over the last few years. I have found her to be extremely knowledgeable and very skilled at working not only with opposing counsel but also with her clients, who are often going through very difficult circumstances. She is practical in her advice, and always reassuring. I highly recommend her.
