Educator and Counselor
Litigation is never an easy choice when you believe you have been wronged and overcoming the emotion of the situation is often the greatest battle. There is a reason they refer to the profession as legal counsel. Ed Buckley was exceptional, educating me along the way to the pros and cons of each step, the effort required, potential disruption to my life, and outcomes. Throughout the process, I felt as though he remained mindful of my investment in their services while maintaining prompt responsiveness. In conclusion, he was able to negotiate a very acceptable settlement on my behalf and I would highly recommend the firm.

Cares for his clients and wins
Ed Buckley did a great job in my case. I was told by my previous lawyer that I was “screwed” and I should pay my prior company to make this go away. Ed gave me good advice and calmed me down and helped me remember I was the good guy. Then proceeded to win my cases. Very good lawyer.

The Consummate Professional
Ed Buckley represents all that is noble in the legal profession. His extraordinary competence coupled with genuine compassion guided me through a tumultuous employment issue. He was patient and attentive as he listened to my convoluted rendition of events that brought me to him. His calm and steady presence at a tense conference and later at a nerve-wracking deposition settled and grounded me. He was always available by phone and email and made me feel as though he had all the time in the world to listen and advise and guide me. His experience in employment matters and wise counsel were invaluable in navigating me to a resolution that brought peace of mind. Moreover, Ed carries forward the best traditions of the legal profession in his community service endeavors. He translates his concern for others in the larger world beyond his practice into actions that improve lives. Clients are in the best of hands with Ed Buckley!

Ed is the best
Ed Buckley did an excellent job with my case (which was a gender discrimination case against my employer). He was completely up front with me (luckily my case was pretty obvious) and just his reputation put my employer on notice. As the attorney for my employer stated, " he is one of the top law attorneys in the city and we need to give this priority", which was what i was hoping. Hopefully I won't have to use him again but I know if I do, he's the one. And I have recommended him to many of my co-workers.

The Buckley Firm is excellent firm. They represented me well and always kept me informed about the status of my case. In this 2 year time period, I dont have one negative word about this firm. When they take your case they will go above and beyond for you. You will never regret your decision, they put your mind at ease even when your dealing with a difficult and stressful situation. Look no further, Ed Buckley is your choice.

preeminent employment attorney
I have worked with Ed many times and have known him to be an excellent labor and employment attorney and widely regarded as one of the best in the state.

Mr Buckley was very respsonsive and kept me well-informed on the matters pertaining to my situation. I was also most impressed with his fiscal handling of my case: He charged me a retainer fee from which he created an escrow account, and he paid himself from that escrow account at an hourly rate, documenting the hours he spent on my case and periodically sending me notification of the same.
