“Mr Richard Buckley of Lupton Fawcett, gave me excellent advice and help recently with a legal document .In these times when little face to face contact is possible he was always available on the phone and made the experience trouble free and very satisfactory.”
“Richard Buckley represented me in, what turned out to be, highly contested court proceedings. Richard was very professional, knowledgeable and meticulous in his approach and he fought my corner when necessary. My divorce was not an easy one; it was very stressful but Richard always listened, put me at ease and took time to explain everything to me, making sure I understood his advice. He is very good at listening and keeping me on track. Richard doesn’t make me feel like a number, but a valued client. If anyone is looking for a family solicitor, I would not hesitate in recommending Richard.”
