I found Cynthia through a friend. When I called and made my first appointment I was scared and had no idea what to do. The girl that answered the telephone put me at ease, and I was given an appointment very quickly. My first meeting with Cynthia was just questions about my life, why I had to do this and her biggest concern "was I safe". She guided me through the whole process.Cynthia was there with me from day one~~in the court room she was my advocate and I felt safe for the first time in a long time. I think back to last year and all the turmoil, and now, where I am today. I know none of it would have happened without Cynthia, my lawyer , and her staff. Thank you Cynthia.
I hired Mrs. Hanley's law firm to represent me in my divorce. In my case the lawyer on several occasions showed up late or to the wrong courthouse and seemed more interested in trying to convince me that what the other side was claiming was true rather than defending me or advocating for me. In the end I had to look for other representation. When I asked for copies of my files my lawyer asked if I was looking for another lawyer, I said yes and that I did not feel I was being represented properly. The reaction to me looking for other representation was that I was fired as a client and a very damaging letter was sent to the court further hurting my case.
I have recommended Cynthia Hanley to several people who have needed help with marital issues. During my divorce process, she was extremely effective, efficient, direct and helpful on many levels. She took me from a very confused and stressed out state to a full understanding of the issues and a satisfying settlement. She was clearly focused on having a broad view of my family situation, while having the legal expertise to execute at a very detailed level. I felt very secure in her hands and highly recommend her.
Cynthia helped me through a very tuff experience. She was very knowlegable and helpful in all areas and kept me informed on everything necessary during the process. Cynthia was my advocate in dealing with a contempt case. She was there for me to represent me and stand up for me when I was unable to stand up for myself. I would recommend Cynthia to represent anyone who needs help with growing a backbone.

I hired Attorney Hanley to represent me in my divorce. She was kind, professional and more importantly, very knowledgable. She made sure I understood each aspect of the financial settlement. She helped me work out a custody arrangment for my daughters that worked very well for our family. I have since referred family & friends to her. I trust her and was very pleased with the service I received during that difficult time.
