Experience, Expertise & Savvy

“As 'applicant' a 'big gun'-time was of the essence, the respondent was 100% uncooperative. Understanding of legal rights was respected as explained necessary by Mr. Buck. It took longer than anticipated as there was stonewalling going on by respondent. Costs spiral but as said" why are divorces so expensive? Because they are worth it", as was the case here. Where Mr. Buck shone was in the final moments before trial was ordered, negotiating with the respondent's lawyer who seemed to understand the scope of problems created by his client. Whilst in the court house meeting room, a deal was struck that certainly took experience, expertise and savvy. In the end it worked out favourably as it was finally over without going to court. It was all about the 'buck'($) by the 'Buck'. Could have been a lot worse and now it's over! Thank you Mr. Buck!”

Grateful I had Him in My Corner... Very Effective

“I have just finished my divorce and Richard has been my lawyer from the beginning. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to have had him in my corner. In addition to being very effective in representing me, he has also taught me many valuable lessons over the past 2 years. Richard has been upfront and honest about the cost and my chances of success on issues. He has counselled me against making decisions based on my emotions - even when I insisted. He has taught me to put my feelings aside and to make objective and informed decisions. Richard has fought the fights that needed to be fought, but has not wasted my money fighting for things I had little chance of success in obtaining. Richard has ensured that, in the end, I received everything I was entitled to. I can now start this new chapter in my life with my finances and self-respect intact. Thank you Richard - for everything you have done for me.”

I cannot express enough my content, if you need a trusted lawyer Richard is a must to have represent you. I guarantee you will be absolutely blown away with what he has to offer you.”

Knowledgeable, Diligent & Patient

“Just finished my settlement and want to relate my experience with Richard Buck. I found him to be very knowledgeable, diligent, and very patient of the antics the other side was throwing at us. His fees appear to be reasonable, although this is the first (and last) time I have been through this process, so it’s hard to be certain. Having said that, I have spoken to friends who have paid much more. Knowing that court would create even more acrimony as well as cost, he skillfully / strategically avoided court. He was always sensitive to my mood and appetite for conflict during the process, which was very comforting during what has been one of the most difficult processes I have ever experienced. His team was also extremely knowledgeable, supportive and responsive to the events as they unfolded. They were very effective in keeping me calm and informed of the process as it unfolded. I unreservedly recommend Richard Buck and would use him again if the situation was repeated.”
