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

Our experience with Cynthia Johnson Vermeulen was excellent. She has vast knowledge of the law and skill in presenting this knowledge before a Judge in a courtroom. She understands that each client is a individual and is sensitive to their needs. Cynthia is always assessible when you have questions. She calls or e-mails as soon as possible. This is appreciated when worried about the case.
We would recommend Cynthia as a knowledgable, competent and skilled attorney. We appreciated her proficiency in working with our case with a ruling in our favor. We would not hesitate to call Cynthia Johnson Vermeulen again. Thank you Cynthia!

I cannot say enough positive things about Cynthia and the service she afforded me during a difficult time. She went above and beyond in every aspect and is a great communicator which, for someone like me who worries a lot, was a huge benefit as I was never left to my worries and imagination. She immediately addressed all my worries and concerns and got the job done in a thoroughly professional and efficacacious manner.

While it was unfortunate due to circumstances that I had to engage an attorney, Cynthia Vermeulen was the right choice. Cynthia was responsive to my concerns as well as took a very proactive approach to my case. Cynthia was organized, extremely knowledgeable and handled my case in a very professional manner. Cynthia was up front about fees and didn't nickel-and-dime me. She was forthright and honest - I appreciated her integrity. I would strongly recommend Cynthia to anyone without hesitation.
