Vicki Buckley
Vicki BuckleyIn House Counsel
Vicki joined your LegalHQ in March 2015.
An immigrant from Ireland, Vicki practiced law as a member of the independent Irish bar where, as a barrister, she handled the court work of a diverse range of clients, both individuals and business owners in all courts and tribunals.

Vicki is a highly analytical thinker who brings the realities of running a case before a judge to the very first meeting with a client. This allows instant focus on the critical areas of a client’s case and the ability to control risk and maximize litigation opportunities from the outset.

Vicki’s official admission to full practice in our jurisdiction is anticipated by the end of this year at which time we hope she will be able to handle all of your LegalHQ’s court work. That will allow our clients to save the expense of engaging external barristers in the more difficult cases.
