Brian Buckley

Appointed to Ryther's Board of Trustees in November 2023

Brian currently is a Litigation Partner at Fenwick & West and is a UW Law School graduate who has practiced law in Seattle for almost 30 years and been involved with many pro bono and non-profit causes, mostly focused on the rights and interests of women, children, the poor, and the LQBTQ+ community.  Brian was on the Board of Wellspring Family Services for 14 years, including two years as its Chair during its $20M capital campaign to build its new headquarters.  He is currently a Board member with the Campaign for Equal Justice, a former Board member with Legal Voice, a former Board member with Westside School, and a former Board committee member with United Way of King County. 


In 2013, Brian received the Washington State Bar Association’s Annual Pro Bono Award for his significant contributions to the legal profession, the justice system, and the public interest.  Brian was drawn to Ryther based on its commitment to kids and his conviction that building strong a community means starting with our youngest and most vulnerable.
