Samuel J. H. Weyers joined Kelleher & Buckley, LLC in 2013 after spending several years at a Chicago boutique personal injury firm. Sam prides himself on furthering the firm’s philosophy of providing quality, results-driven, solutions-based strategies.

In civil disputes, Sam has represented businesses, business owners, people who have been injured as the result of negligence (for which he has helped recover millions of dollars), and both individuals and fiduciaries in litigation concerning estate planning documents. Sam frequently works with the firm’s Corporate team to help business owners avoid litigation and efficiently resolve disputes that arise. He also assists individuals with creating carefully-crafted estate plans.

Sam is the Vice President of the Trent Steckel Scholarship Fund, which provides future first responders with scholarships to defray educational costs. He currently sits on the Council of Light of Christ Lutheran Church in Algonquin and Luther College’s Alumni Council. Go Norse!

In his free time, Sam enjoys cooking for his wife and daughter. He plays racquetball several times per week.

After a tremendous 22 years together, David Buckley and Andrew Kelleher, founding members of Kelleher & Buckley, LLC, have decided to amicably split into two distinct law firms. The creation of these new firms will allow each company to follow their individual roadmap to success and maximize their clients’ experience.

We are excited to announce both partnerships: K&B equity member Robert Holland will partner with Andrew Kelleher to form Kelleher + Holland, LLC. Similarly, equity member Linda Fine will join David Buckley to create Buckley Fine, LLC. All of our current attorneys, paralegals and staff will be taking this journey with us.

The separation is effective September 1, 2020, at which point Kelleher & Buckley will no longer be providing legal services. During this transition, you can continue to expect the high quality of service you have always received from us as we shift to our new partnerships. Current and past clients, please check your email for additional details.

In the meantime, we have developed an FAQ to address any general questions you may have. As always, please feel free to contact us with any specific questions or concerns.

Thank you for your loyalty over the last 20+ years; we appreciate your support during this transition and look forward to advising you in the future.
