About the Firm

If you are involved in a family dispute or facing a criminal charge, chances are that you are feeling apprehensive about the future.

At The Buckley Law Firm, in San Luis Obispo, California, we represent clients throughout the Central Coast region in a wide range of family law and both misdemeanor and felony level criminal defense matters. We work hard to give our clients clarity and peace of mind about the challenges they face, particularly in matters of divorce and DUI defense.

Our founding attorneys Heather Sutton Buckley and Brian Buckley are experienced and dedicated attorneys who are familiar with the law and its practice, both in court and at the negotiating table. They strive to provide clients with legal options that fit their needs and their circumstances.

Our experienced trial attorneys will advocate strongly for our divorce clients in court when necessary. However, they often pursue alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods when possible. Through negotiation and/or mediation, our clients can often resolve disputes over child custody, child visitation, child support, alimony or property division for a fraction of the cost of a court trial, while retaining full control over their personal and financial destinies.

DUI Defense
Whether a client is facing his or her first DUI arrest, or the latest of many arrests, we provide the same high level of dedicated defense work. We use expert testimony in addition to diligent evidence gathering to make sure law enforcement officers followed proper arrest and testing procedures, and that they can prove a drunk or drugged driving offense occurred.
Further, we defend clients at DMV hearings to prevent their driver’s licenses from being automatically suspended after a DUI arrest.
