Linda is an excellent attorney that is easy to work with and extremely helpful. My firm refers clients to her for estate planning, estate administration, and corporate work, and I have worked with Linda for my own personal legal needs. I find it refreshing when an advisor is willing to collaborate with clients and fellow advisors to reach the best outcome for our clients. Linda Fine and everyone at her firm always treat people with respect and, in my opinion, that says a lot about how well that expert can relate to clients I refer over.Steve FishSteve Fish ★★★★★ The team at Buckley-Fine is at the top of the class.

They have a big parking lot and an easily accessible elevator to get to their floor. The office is new and clean. They all were wearing masks and had hand sanitizer and you could feel they follow all the precautions. We worked with Linda and Jackie today. They were very knowledgeable, responsive, and fun to work with. This was for my fathers estate, but my estate planning went just as smoothly. They charge a fair price for their services and I felt they had all the answers to the questions we had, as well as many ideas that require their expertise. I highly recommend their firm and especially Linda Fine. She is fantastic.Mike NelsenMike Nelsen ★★★★★ A pleasure to engage and work with this firm and specifically Caroline Hecht.
