I was a client of Ms. Cecilia Guzman. I attempted to contact her numerous occasions via phone and email for legal advice being that she was my attorney. She never called me back once. I finally had to get another attorney. Once I did, I still had to contact her for months to try and obtain the remainder of my retainer. When she finally sent me the invoice after calling her almost daily, another legal professional advised me that would have never spent the time on certain items that she said she did, she most likely did not provide the services herself but charged me her fee on certain items on the invoice. She also charged me a few items on invoice even after she received substitute of attorney letter. She did not provide good services, she never responded, and she did not return due money, and she made the process a lot longer than it should have been.
Cecilia has been my attorney on various family matters throughout the years. She it the kind of attorney who makes you feel like you really matter. I felt like she was not only fighting for me and my rights, but she understood and sympathized with what I was going through. She knows her stuff and is not afraid to fight. One of a kind!
I came to Ms. Sarina Guzman in the past on an issue of custody when I was going through a difficult time in my life. Ms. Guzman was attentative, compassionate, and understanding. She is experienced when it comes to family law and she did a great job in court. She fought hard to have my views set before the judge and did not let our opponent get the upper hand. Ms. Guzman is a professional with a heart of gold. Having someone by my side with such confidence and who was fighting for my cause with her heart as well as her mind made me able to hold my head up. It was such a relief to know I could give her my opinion and tell her my side of the story and see how she incorporated her expertise and knowledge into a presentation before the judge that got our point accross and got us what we were requesting from the Court. She is awesome and humble. The best decision I ever made was having her represent me.
