Attorney Buck is settlement oriented, but tough and aggressive when needed (in litigation). She strives to minimize trauma in divorce, and believes these are problems to be solved, not battles to be fought.
Founder of the Law Offices of Meredith J. Buck, P.C., Meredith Buck brings to her legal practice an extensive background in critical care and surgical nursing. She received her R.N. from Chestnut Hill Hospital School of Nursing, where she graduated with honors. She graduated summa cum laude from Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science with a B.S. in Health Care Administration. Elected as a member of Phi Delta Phi, she received her J.D. from Widener University School of Law, where she also became certified in mediation.
Because of Ms. Buck’s diverse background in nursing and administration, after September 11, 2001, she concentrated much of her time as a volunteer nurse and instructor for the Emergency Services Department of the American Red Cross, traveling to New York, Colorado, California, and as far as Guam with the disaster relief efforts. She continues to volunteer on both a local and national level.
As an attorney, Ms. Buck worked as an associate at Plakins, Rieffel & Ray P.C., where she concentrated her practice on medical-malpractice defense. In addition to owning and operating her firm in Chalfont, she now devotes many hours to the pro bono representation of Protection from Abuse clients. Additionally, Ms. Buck devotes much of her practice to family, including collaborative divorce and mediation.
Ms. Buck is admitted to practice law in the state courts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey and in the Court of Bucks County. She is an active member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and also the Bucks County Bar Association. As an active community advocate, she also sits on the Central Bucks Ambulance and Rescue Squad’s Board of Directors.
