Exceptional Attorney - Understands and Cares About Her Clients
Cheryl Bucker is an exceptional attorney that understands that the failure of a marriage is a tragedy with enormous emotional and financial impacts; and is compassionate, honest and diligent in the legal advice and service that she provides. I have come to rely on Cheryl to separate the important and the relevant portions of my case from the "noise". She is a valued friend that continues to make a difference in my life.

Excellent attorney for family law cases
This attorney was retained in a divorce/custody case. Mrs. Bucker resprented our case for over 5 years through mediation, magistrate hearings, judges decisions and worked closely with appelate attornies in an attempt to close our case successfully. Mrs. Bucker succeeded in winning custody of my children, I am a single father who had just remarried, and I was awarded child support and other fees. Through the experience Mrs. Bucker always fought hard for our family and kept us up to date on every aspect of our case. Over the years through hard times, bad news and good news Mrs. Bucker always continued to push forward in the best interest of our family. Mrs. Bucker cares about her clients and treats them like family and friends. I meet many people in my line of work and without a doubt I would recommend Mrs. Bucker to represent them.

Exemplary Professionalism with a Tenacious Drive to Win
You will not be disappointed if you hire this team of outstanding women. They are EVERYTHING you want in a legal team handling your sensitive family affairs. My divorce went very smooth; largely because I was supported by the fierceness of Cheryl and Lindsay. They were well prepared and armed with answers to possible questions. I am forever grateful that I have come to know these ladies.

Post Judgement Modification
Cheryl Bucker, Lindsey Zamniak and her excellent legal team including Jennifer Siegel always provided clear and positive communication with me throughout my case. This firm helped make a difficult mission much easier with informed representation. I felt like I had a strong loyal team with me. I researched many firms to choose the correct fit for my needs and am very glad I engaged this legal team.

Divorce
I consider myself beyond blessed to have had Cheryl & Lindsay represent me for my divorce. Cheryl is not only professional and very knowledgeable, but a true master of her craft. Knowing that she was on my side was extremely comforting. Before I retained Cheryl for my case, I had already wasted time and money with an incompetent attorney. She immediately took over my case, and wasted no time. I was shocked at how quickly she became familiar with every little detail of my case, as if she was there from the very beginning. Cheryl's paralegal, Jennifer, was extremely diligent, efficient, and always made available when I needed her. Cheryl & Lindsay know the law, and most importantly, these ladies know how to get the best outcome for their clients. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!!! Simply the BEST!!!!!

SATISFYING RESULTS
Effective, competent, efficient, accessible, and accountable. That is how I describe the law office of attorney Cheryl Bucker. Cheryl’s years of experience is evident. She knew how to guide my case and what motions to file. Her highly qualified legal partner Lindsay is equally outstanding. She consistently remained on top of opposing counsel and every open issue to ensure the ball was never dropped. I also commend their legal assistant Jennifer for her role in managing my legal documents. If you want to successfully survive the legal process of divorce in Florida, I recommend the reasonable, sensible, and respected law office of attorney Bucker.

Best Law Team ever
I recently retained Cheryl Bucker's firm to represent my interest in a divorce. The divorce proceedings were a confusing and frustrating process. I had a thousand questions and a hundred complaints about the entire justice system. Cheryl and her staff, Lindsay and Jenny, patiently answered all of my concerns. Night or day, through email, text, or a personal phone call, they immediately responded to every inquiry. Opposing counsel tried every trick in the book to prolong and sabotage our case, but Cheryl Bucker and her crew adapted and overcome all of them. She brought in legal consultant specialists, sent subpoenas out like missiles, filed appeals to unfair rulings and even schooled the judge on procedural rules. The divorce took 2.5 years but, had it not been for Cheryl , Lindsay, and Jenny, opposing counsel would have dragged it out to 5 years! Thanks to Cheryl's team, I never paid any temporary support, I did not have to pay any of the ex's living expenses ( including mortgage), and I did not have to pay for any of the opposing counsel's legal fee's. When the divorce finally ended, I paid a small one-time settlement and was giving 3 months to pay it. No alimony was awarded for a 30+ year marriage! That is almost unheard of. And, as further proof of her firm's appeal, my settlement amount and Cheryl's legal fee's COMBINED added up to less than half of what the ex's lawyer charged her to take a beating!! If you are considering a divorce, you need to call Cheryl Bucker P.A., before your spouse does!

Best Family Law Attorney
Where do I start with how wonderful Cheryl and her staff are! Cheryl has assisted me with everything from my Will and Trust papers to a very ugly family matter. Cheryl met with me immediately gave me wonderful expectations of what I was going into with filing of so many documents and having to go to court. Her firm was always quick to respond to any of my questions (no question was ever left unanswered) and her fees were just perfect. I work for attorneys and met with several other attorneys prior to hiring Cheryl to discus my personal matter and what it would cost to resolve and no one beat her. I found Cheryl, Lindsay and Jennifer all very compassionate while being straight to the point with what I was dealing with. I am eternally thankful for their help and quick resolution to my problem.

Best Lawyer
To all those that are in need of the best legal representation in my opinion. At the time of my decision to get a divorce I interviewed 5 attorney's. 4 males and one female. Of the 4 males they did not inspire me at all. They said well this could happen, that could happen, etc. After my interview of the 4 men I decided to seek help from a female attorney. Considering the aggravated history with my ex I needed a very strong attorney to match the ferocity of my ex. So I called for an appointment with Cheryl Bucker. After giving her my detailed history she got up, came over and hugged me and said I will protect you and she stated that she will not allow my ex wife to take advantage of me anymore. And Cheryl did exactly what she said she would. I felt totally at ease with Cheryl's performance and her no nonsense approach to dealing with estranged ex's. Every problem I had with my ex , Cheryl would stand in charge for me and Cheryl delivered the best results I could have wanted. My divorce was a horrible nightmare but thanks to Cheryl's dedication, careful decision making and the care for me, I walked away in pretty good shape. I can't say that I won because no one is a winner in divorce but I feel without Cheryl's representation I would have walked away a loser. Thank you Cheryl for everything you did for me. I will always be grateful. Bill 12/10/2017

Look no further... you have an AMAZING attorney that will fight for you!!
I hired this law firm for a divorce case. They were not only helpful and professional... but they were kind and thoughtful during a very difficult time for me. I was given advice I needed to hear!! Not always easy when emotions are involved and you're not thinking clearly. However, Cheryl had my back 1000%; she totally had my best interest in mind. SHE SAVED ME!!! I work with tons of attorneys due to my business... I could have used so many other firms, but I'm blessed and so very happy I chose Cheryl Bucker, PA!!! The best part of my divorce... I got the dog :-) and she fought for what I wanted, with us getting just that!! God bless and thank you so very much!! COSTS: That was very reasonable too and no surprises. It was over and done with fairly quickly as well. All my best to the staff and Cheryl, thanks again!!

Remarkable attorney at a difficult time
Cheryl is extremely knowledgeable. She assisted me during a very difficult time in my life with my divorce and then my estate planning. Her support staff are also very knowledgeable and gave me the attention and time that you just don't see anymore these days. Cheryl and her team are incredible and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a sharp attorney with a team that truly cares about their clients.

Gives her all for her clients.
After my ex-husband dragged me to court for the pettiest of reasons, I was glad to have someone like Cheryl on my side. If you're looking for an attorney who fights for you then look no further.

AWESOME ATTORNEY
Ms. Bucker represented me in a very challenging modification of divorce that was initiated by ex-wife. Opposing council was neither fair nor reasonable and, quite frankly, down right nasty - to be expected when fighting for more, more, more. Ms. Bucker took the challenge head on in a sensible, practical and pragmatic fashion in an effort to find common sense and when that didm;t work she pulled out her legal "guns". At times when simply could not believe opposing council motion after motion, Cheryl actually knew when to lighten the load by interjecting humor where it was definitely required. You cannot be better served for all of your legals need and could not find better representation. Cheryl Bucker is a ROCK STAR and will mitigate your legal conundrum.

Excellent Lawyer
The first time I met her you can see the passion and drive in her which makes her an excellent attorney. She is not an attorney that tells you what you want to hear but explains the rules and how to engage the case. She is without a doubt the person you want on your side for any case. I highly recommend her.
