Family law attorney Kathleen Buckley is teaming up with her daughter, attorney Bridget Buckley, to form what they say is Madison County’s first mother-daughter law firm.
Buckley & Buckley Law will open at 216 N. Main St. in Edwardsville on Sept. 1. Kathleen Buckley has practiced law at that location for 20 years and is pleased to have the new firm continue to provide excellent legal services at the same place.
“I have been a lawyer in the metro-east for the past 29 years and Bridget has worked locally since 2014,” noted Kathleen Buckley. She added, “Bridget and I both graduated from SIU-Carbondale School of Law, albeit 25 years apart; and we are very happy to bring our client-centered approach to managing cases to this new venture.”
Buckley & Buckley Law will provide a dynamic range of legal services. They include all areas of family law from simple divorces through those involving business owners and high net-worth clients; child support for minors, college-bound students and disabled adults; adoptions; custody cases (visitation, allocations of parenting time and responsibilities); parentage; orders of protections and other domestic violence issues; DCFS investigations; wills and tax deeds.
Buckley & Buckley Law handles DUIs, traffic offenses, and criminal misdemeanors. The law firm also offers mediation in family law, real estate, and business disputes.
