Cindy is a consummate professional who is diligent and attentive to my concerns. She is driven to win and puts her client’s interests ahead of everything else. Her direct approach in solving my problems by listening and asking probing questions eased my apprehensions. Cindy’s legal wherewithal is undoubtedly why she is the best in her field of Family Law. I highly recommend Ms. Perusse and her law firm for any family matter that needs expeditious legal resolution.
Cindy Perusse is what an attorney should be: Straightforward, direct, honest, and reliable.
At the same time, Cindy was warm and supportive which I needed at that time. She handled herself, the client (me!), and the opposing attorney with grace and integrity. There was none of that incomprehensible legal mumbo jumbo to explain why we couldn't do what made perfect sense to me. If it made sense to me and didn't violate the law, that's what we did. If she had another idea, she would made her point, explaining the legal aspects clearly, and patiently answer my questions. In the end, it was still up to me. Cindy listened to my thoughts and desires and made them reality to the extent the law allows.
Her rates are reasonable when compared with the market and especially reasonable given the very conservative way she counts her time. I several times found myself wondering how she could accomplish so much in the amount of time she had listed on the invoice.
When I needed some legal help outside of Cindy's area of expertise, she didn't do what attorneys have done to me in the past, which is to just grab a name from their law school alumni book or some other association to score some networking points. She recommended an equally talented attorney with whom she has actually worked in the past and offered a substantial and detailed endorsement. That also worked out well for me.
A very close (male) friend recommended Cindy as she had handled his divorce as well. He's not with us anymore and I don't propose to speak for him but his enthusiastic recommendation was a big factor in my decision to hire Cindy. I recommended Cindy to another (female) close friend who was also extremely pleased with the work Cindy did for her.
Cindy is warm, personable, very smart, strong when necessary, and a lady with class.
I unreservedly endorse and recommend her.
