Mark Steven Buckley CFP

About me

Attorney Buckley served for several years on the Advisory Committee to the US Bankruptcy Court. He has counseled thousands of clients overwhelmed with debt and helped them achieve a fresh start.

While a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is not the only option, it is the best option for those who have no reasonable ability to repay their debts; especially those who are dealing with wage attachments, lawsuits, unemployment, disability/ illness, divorce or other life changing events. Those living on a fixed income, particularly Senior Citizens, also benefit greatly from our help.

If you are concerned about losing your home or car, or ruining your credit, you should know that the vast majority of my clients have kept all of their property and improved their credit rating.

We offer honest friendly advice for all your questions and will gladly discuss your situation. If you qualify for bankruptcy, a free in-home appointment can be made days, evenings, or weekends anywhere in Rhode Island or Massachusetts.

  • Lawrence J. Signore

    I endorse this lawyer. Mark was extremely persistent on a personal injury matter we worked together. It was because of Mark's old fashioned keeping after the insurance company were able to obtain a fair settlement for the client. His attention to detail carried the day.
