Presenter: Linda Buckley

Linda’s career in accounting and finance spans several decades and diverse areas of expertise, with a focus on divorce matters for over 20 years. During her own divorce in 1996, she realized how overwhelming the process can be for both parties, especially for those unfamiliar with their family’s finances.

In 2016, considering clients’ need for specialized services in family law, she made the decision to concentrate her practice on matters related to divorce. Her goal as a financial expert in the divorce process is to educate and guide clients to the best possible outcomes. At the end of the day, it is important for both spouses to be able to plan for ‘life after divorce.’
