I recently hired Cynthia for my DWI case in Kanabec county. I feel she was a great deal of help for me. She was very knowledgeable in this field. She was able to not make my case affect my job which was greatly appreciated. She was good at helping me understand what was going on, and what my options were. She seemed to be well known in and out of the courtroom. Overall, I am very pleased with the outcome of my case.

Cynthia has been working with my case for about two years now. Cynthia has never failed to impress me with her stellar organizational skills and professionalism. If I ever had a question, Cynthia would respond as soon as possible and I always felt as if she was meeting my needs to the best of her ability. Her office and staff are organized, professional, kind, and helpful as well.
Cynthia is apt to take notes and is very wise and intelligent. Her years of experience as an attorney is evident and she is top notch.
While dealing with my case was never easy, I'm very thankful for Cynthia's assistance and could not ask for a better attorney,

I made a mistake in the way I chose to defend myself during a serious altercation. I received several very serious charges (4 felonies and a gross misdemeanor). Cynthia defended me extremely well and 4 of the charges were dropped and the one that I plead guilty to will be reduced after probation due to a downward departure. I felt I received a very fair outcome. Her experience definitely showed in my case, and she also made me feel human again, as the legal process can feel to many people like they have been demonized and reduced to nothing. Cynthia always prepared me for what to expect in court, and gave me recommendations on how to better conduct myself in the mean time to help produce a more favorable outcome. I would definitely be locked up for a long time if I chose to have a court appointed lawyer defend me. Cynthia runs a very good practice in St. Cloud and Minnetonka and I feel the other lawyers that work for her must be really good too, based on my experience meeting them, and knowing how important it is to her to have knowledgeable experts at hand. I am really glad I hired Vermeulen Law Office. She is definitely a great lawyer that I would recommend to anyone.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Ms. Vermeulen for several years. I have been invoked with Ms Vermeulen on both personal and professional issues. Ms. Vermeulen has never ceased to amaze me with her ability to resolve difficult situations with efficiency and positive results.
Through my profession I have daily contact with various attorneys. Ms Vermeulen is by far the hardest working, knowledgable and competent attorney I have dealt with.

I hired Cynthia about 4 years ago to handle my divorce/custody issues. She provided excellent guidance throughout the process. She prepared excellent responses and listened to my concerns. She stayed calm about everything and offered realistic advice. She did not sugar-coat anything and I feel I went into everything knowing my options. I am a rather non-assertive person and she was very assertive yet respectful and I knew she would get me the best result possible. I also have a friend that she represented on a case and he was extremely happy with her services as well.

When I needed a criminal defense lawyer, Cynthia came highly recommended by someone with extensive knowledge of the attorneys in Central Minnesota.
Throughout my case, she was willing to offer me her best legal advice, always returned my queries in a prompt manner with complete information, and was willing to work with my family to achieve the best possible outcome, even if it meant toning down some of her considerable tactical skills.
Cynthia helped me with both a civil and criminal case stemming from the same incident, and made sure the civil case came out the way it needed to for my family, even though it meant she had a harder job to do on the criminal side of things. She then worked with the legal system to find the softest landing possible and pursued it by going around the prosecuting attorney and straight to the judge.
Throughout the process, she gave me good advice on how to minimize the damage already caused and how to survive the process. I am thankful for her guidance and reasonable approach to the case.

Cynthia helped me through a very difficult process for me and was very patient and helpful through the whole process. I would definately recommend her to a client seeking a divorce.

I have retained this attorney on more than one occasion for legal counsel on family law and she is intelligent, trustworthy and prompt. She made my divorce settlement palatable and stood her ground representing my rights. I highly doubt that anyone who has gone through a divorce thinks that their settlement is fair, but Ms. Vermeulen kept me calm and sane throughout the whole ordeal.

Cynthia handled my divorce case, first off, sympathetically, but remained professional, always advocating for me. Her first words to me were 'How are you?' and I knew she meant it. She is an attorney with a heart, but the know how to get it done. I have used her more than once and she has met my needs both times. Only thing I would have improved on was the billing. It was sporatic and I preferred it monthly.

Cynthia is one of the most responsible professionals I know. She always returned my phone calls and emails in a timely manner, and she always followed through with what she says she would do.
Also, Cynthia really seemed to shine when we were in court. She demonstrated a lot of common sense and thought quick on her feet when before the judge. I would definitely recommend Cynthia as your attorney. John
