Review Karen Buckley

  • Excellent Family Law Attorney

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Karen did an excellent job in her handling of my protracted and complex family law dispute. She was excellent in the court room, in negotiation, and in helping me devise a strategy that led to what I believe was the best possible outcome. She was also extremely responsive and a pleasure to work with. I was fortunate to have her as my attorney and strongly recommend her.

    I am a lawyer, and Karen handled my divorce. She did a great job of finding a way to deescalate every issue (despite the other lawyer trying to drive costs up at every turn), but being firm when firmness was right. Her intuitions were continually spot on.

    I interviewed three attorneys and am glad I selected Karen Buckley to represent me in my divorce. Karen handled my contentious and long-drawn-out court case with knowledge, skill, and good judgment. She responded to all my concerns and advised me honestly about the repercussions of any decisions. She knows the system inside & out and continued to advise me post-divorce about several complications that came up. I have two children and she made it clear throughout that as a family lawyer her concern for them was paramount. I trust her and so will continue to use her for divorce-related issues, and would recommend her to anyone going into this difficult process.

  • Experience and empathy in a divorce attorney

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Karen brought skills from years of experience and natural empathy to help me with a difficult divorce process. She both litigates and works collaboratively, and clearly laid out the pros and cons for me when I was weighing the options. I could really tell she would advocate for my best interest, and that of my three children. She is pragmatic and direct, and kept me on track even when my ex provided quite a few diversions. She worked well with opposing counsel. We still keep in touch, and I've recommended her to friends.

    Karen is a great attorney. I have worked with her in the past and it has been a pleasure. She advocates for her clients in an effective manner that helps the case reach a positive conclusion. Look forward to working with her again.

    I have referred clients to her in the past and I will continue to do so in the future.

  • Highly recommend

    Karen is a very dedicated, knowledgeable and straight forward lawyer - these words were all used in other recommendations posted here and are a perfect description of her. Some of the things I appreciated about her were: her availability to me, her understanding of how important it was to me to be fair and truthful in the year + time we spend working on a settlement and custody, and her efforts to make sure that we were not spending money needlessly.

    The most important thing was how she cared about the well being of my daughter (and me!) through this process. She was a great resource in helping me help my daughter deal with the stress and with her relationship with her very difficult father. She's not a shrink, just very caring, and has great insight into, and experience with, the divorce and custody process. I always felt she had my daughter's best interests in mind, which was what mattered most to me.

    In the court room she is very clear and well spoken, just the right levels of conviction and touch of emotion when stating the case. She had a very good working relationship with my ex's lawyer, they were able to communicate clearly and negotiate well on my ex's unreasonable requests.

    I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking counsel.

  • HIGH CONFLICT DIVORCE

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Suzanne

    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.

    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 Buckley is a very experienced, dedicated and compassionate attorney who is very knowledgeable in her field. I was always kept informed of the status of my case including everything that I would be dealing with such as time frames and expenses that I would be responsible for including all my legal options. My questions were always addressed and phone calls were always returned promptly. Karen is very hard working and demonstrated a keen interest in my case with a friendly support. She is a very loyal and honest person and a highly professional lawyer who is doing her very best to help you out to win the case and reach the most desirable resolution. I would highly recommend her to anyone and would definitely use her again.
