Randal Buckley - The Law House Family Law Solicitors, London & Peterborough


Client Profile Image

Given the weather, where would you holiday in the UK and why?

A small cottage in the countryside for long walks in rolling hills. Lovely.

One thing I never travel without and why?

I always travel with fluffy slippers, no matter where as my feet are able to turn to ice in the warmest of climate.

What is the best piece of technology you have ever owned and why?

I’ve recently purchased a Mifi device for international roaming and it has worked a treat, keeping me online wherever I travel.

What is your best reason for cancelling an appointment? Did it work and did you feel guilty?

The only good reason to cancel an appointment is death or disaster, luckily I have not had to use it yet.

How environmentally friendly am I?

I am trying to reduce packaging, plastics are my new favourite enemy.
