Cynthia White has been a God send. I hired her for child custody, she was prepared, professional and had a nice bite to go with it. During the court process, she took my stress and my anxiety and ALL my questions. My kids are my life that will be my only legacy, Cynthia understood and cared about MY issues. I have to take moment and give a big shout out to her staff DEBORAH, one word describes her AMAZING, she is a wonderful asset. She knows my voice and my current events regarding my case when I call, they are a great team. They were great at returning phone calls and emails in a timely fashion.
Before retaining Cynthia, Deborah (her para legal) spent time with me on the phone explaining the process to me, (incase I decided not to retain...which of course I did). My consultation with Cynthia was lengthy, she just gave me a plethora of information and then took the time explaining it to me in layman's terms, obviously having never been through this situation before and had trust issues with any lawyer. She reassured me, comforted me and empowered me with confidence regarding my case. I can't say enough good words about her law firm. I was in good hands.
She is so personable that we are on a first name basis which made it feel like I was talking to a friend that really cares about you, your family and especially your court situation. Thank You Cynthia!!
I was referred to Cynthia L. White for a family law matter a couple of years ago. She and her office staff were extremely helpful and supportive. Ms. White knows the law, and even though she cannot guarantee any outcome of your case, she certainly has a tremendous insight as to how the court tends to rule on certain issues based on the law. I think we tend to lose sight of the fact that no matter how good an attorney may be at what they do, they cannot change law and sometimes they have to tell us things we do not want to hear. It is easy to blame the attorney when things do not go our way, when the truth is the attorney has no control over the law and the court must make its ruling based on the law. Fortunately, in my case that did not happen, and Ms. White was very honest with me about what to expect and prepared me for any possible outcome no matter how unpleasant it may have been to hear. Ms. White is extremely knowledgeable and very good at what she does. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is in need of her services.
Ms. White handled my case with professionalism and in a caring manner. She and her staff kept me informed and were able to answer my questions when needed. She did fight for what was right and was completely honest the whole time. Deborah was very helpful and very kind as well. They will fight for you and I appreciate all they have done! When it comes to child custody cases she does what is best for the child. I have and will continue to recommend her to others.
Cindy is genuinely committed to her clients. She navigates the legal system with highly skilled knowledge and a professional style that makes you feel well represented throughout the process!
Ms. White represented us in two legal affairs and in both cases, we found her to be extremely honest, pro-active and timely. She was professional and treated us with compassion and patience. We even referred her to our friend and she too expressed how quickly Ms. White got back to her and gave her the legal advice she desperately needed.
Cynthia White was very highly recommended to me by several of her prior clients and even some opposing parties based on the excellent job she did for their ex-spouse. She is extremely honest and ethical. She did not sugar coat the issues or make promises she could not keep. She was brutally honest about the law and what I could expect, even though she was telling me what I did not want to hear. I had nothing but the best experience with her and her office. My phone calls were always returned within a reasonable length of time and even though her staff was often able to answer my questions, Ms. White was always accessible to me and I was given the option of speaking with her directly if I chose. Any paperwork prepared by Ms. White's office was nothing but top notch and always prepared and filed in a timely manner. Ms. White never missed a court appearance, and I was always represented with the highest level of competence and professionalism. As far as I am concerned, Ms. White truly lives up to her reputation as "The Great White" in every way and I highly recommend her to anyone.
She was recommended to me to do my divorce. Had consultation last May (Nine months ago) and have not heard from her since. $4000 retainer down the crapper. She has not filed a response to my husband's divorce filing which was filed last June. I think her assistant does her work. When I try to contact them they are rude and insulting and I have yet to talk to Ms. White in spite of numerous requests in the last nine months.
Missed deadlines, did not communicate other than when she wanted more money, dragged my case on forever, did not follow through on my requests, wouldn't return my phone calls, treated me rudely on numerous occasions, was late to court several times leaving me wondering if she was gonna show up.
