A Great Attorney,Nicer Person
I have had numerous legal entanglements in NYC going back 40 years. Robert Buckley has provided legal representation that I would say is in the top 3% of all the attorneys I ever had to deal with. Even before I hired him he was working on my case by providing legal research documents as to how he was going to handle the case. In addition he arranged that only he had to appear in court due to my illness. The way Mr. Buckley works one might think he was an eager young attorney fresh out of law school looking to get his career started.That is far from the truth. He is an experienced competent attorney who also is a nice man. I wish all my legal affairs could be handled the way he handled my SS case.

Robert reviewed my case and my prior denials of SSD Benefit cases, He established a very great format going forward to which his dedication to my case and his hands on approach to which my prior attorney never took the time or effort put forth by Robert to complete and present a very productive defense on my behalf. I must say Robert is one of kind, very dedicated to his career in establishing his clients victory as per his personal touch in creating a team effort on your behalf.

Mr. Buckley makes me feel that I am in good hands.
Mr. Buckley is a great lawyer. He was my first choice, after unsuccessfully reaching to other lawyers online, he called me up and emailed me right back requesting more information about my case. I was involved in a medical malpractice case that took place many years back, and he found that the last time my Dr. treated me was within the deadline, and with a few months to file for my case, he successfully did it. Thanks Mr Buckley.

Excellent and attentive immigration lawyer
Moving to a new country can be a difficult and frightening experience and a lawyer can easily transformed the experience for better or worse. Robert Buckley is a kind and attentive lawyer who made our case a priority. Robert is quick to respond to questions and concerns when they arise - if he dose not have the immediate answer he is quick to find it. Robert is vigilant and empathetic of the stresses that come with relocating to a new country (e.g., unfamiliarity, unemployment, etc.) and he swiftly completed our paperwork and periodically followed up. Robert's friendly demeanor and openness eased our immigration process. We are a same-sex couple and Robert always treated us with kindness and respect. We highly recommend using Robert Buckley to help you through your immigration; you will not regret it. Our experience with him was quick and painless... even enjoyable at times.

An absolute professional.
Robert C. Buckley is a fantastic lawyer who is extremely knowledgeable, patient, organized, and very understanding. He took me through the whole process at my own pace and was very knowledgeable when any questions I had arose. I would highly recommend Mr. Buckley to anyone who needs an SS disability attorney.

A Very Positive Recommendation
Mr, Buckley couples a strong expertise in case law with a personal commitment to partner with his client to enable them to share in decisionmaking and to have a clear idea of options and outcomes. He keeps the client well-informed, readies them for hearings and depositions, and argues effectively on their behalf. He is smart, decisive, and empathetic, and I recommend him to any prospective client.
