We brought our estate planning to Cynthia because we knew of her stellar reputation for being professional, responsive and knowledgeable. We could not be more pleased with her in every aspect of her professionalism. She was always patient and considerate of our many questions. She made us feel like she truly cared about us as clients, and what was important to us was also important to her. We highly recommend Cynthia Buhr for estate planning, She is an exceptional attorney.

Cynthia was very knowledgeable about what kind of documents we needed as a lesbian couple trying to do as much as we could to protect ourselves, our assets, and our relationship. She was very comfortable to work with and very responsive to our changes and questions. We have complete faith in her and would use her again for any legal needs,

I hired Cynthia to work on my very complex divorce case and she kept me informed about the proceedings as things transpired. She researched the specifics regarding my case to ensure that it was being handled in the best possible manner. She was very professional and prompt, would highly recommend her!

My partner and I used Cynthia for a fairly straightforward estate plan. Cynthia was very professional and the experience was straightforward and effecient yet she took time to answer all of our questions in length.

Cynthia has been a superb attorney to work with. She handled our son's adoption, our family estate planning, and is now handling our daughter's adoption. We have appreciated her clear communication, prompt responsiveness, reliability, and affordability. Above all, she is extremely knowledgeable about the unique issues facing LGBT families, as the legal landscape for these issues is quickly changing. Cynthia is respectful of the time of busy families, and has made these processes as easy and convenient as possible. I enthusiastically recommend her services.

o We ended up using the opposing attorney’s documentation, which put me at a huge disadvantage, because they were more prepared.
o I had to answer the same question multiple times. It’s definitely good to get confirmation, especially regarding legal documentation; however, I was asked for information that I had previously answered in the multiple page questionnaire which I spent hours completing. It led me to believe that this questionnaire wasn’t used at all.
o Along these lines, instead of using the information I provided to put together a proposal that would be customized to my needs, she used a template from prior cases which didn’t address my concerns.
• Difficult to talk to
o She is really hard to talk to. Most of the time I felt as though I was inconveniencing her and that she really didn’t care about my situation. Once I realized this I would have loved to switch attorney’s but unfortunately at that point realized it was too late to do so. She was also argumentative with me at times when I raised concerns about some of the decisions.
o In addition, throughout the case it felt as though she just wanted to close the case as quickly as possible and hence probably made recommendations that weren’t in my best interest.
o There were multiple occasions where I had to wait weeks for Cynthia to deliver on her commitments. I had to send her multiple reminders and felt as though I was prioritized to the bottom. Consequently, everything ended up being rushed towards the end and I was forced to make decisions I was not happy with.
o We ended up going with all of the other attorney’s recommendations. Looking back I don’t think this was a good idea and had Cynthia been experienced with their recommendations would have advised against them. She in fact told me after the fact that she didn’t have experience with some of their suggestions.
