Ms. Macklin is without a doubt the most ethical attorney I have ever met. She is so honest it absolutely floored me. She does not play games. Unfortunately for me she decided that I was in need of a different sort of attorney to handle my case as it is riddled with complexities and my insistence that if we were unable to resolve the matter I would want to take this case to trial.
Even though she decided to not continue with my representation she did not leave me empty handed. She gave me a list of attorneys that she personally knew and felt they would be good for my situation, all of whom I did contact but for one reason or the other I chose another attorney that was not one of Ms. Macklins referrals.
This has turned out to be on a more probable than not bases a huge mistake on my part.
I should not have strayed from Ms. Macklins referrals as each day that passes I am becoming more and more aware of the colossal mistake I have made.
I have dealt with many attorneys on issues such as L&I, civil, and shamefully criminal matters, and I can assure you that Ms. Macklin is not the norm.
I have never in all of my many experiences met an attorney who I have liked until I met Ms. Macklin.
What I realized nearly immediately was her ethical standards and her honesty. For me though maybe to honest, however I am a big boy and I can take it whether I agreed with Ms. Macklins decision to not represent me or not.
I am stubborn and aggressive when I feel that I am getting the shaft. I have just enough legal knowledge to get myself into a heap of problems and I am probably just short of narcissistic. So with that said I don't blame Ms. Macklin for her decision.
She is a graduate of the Jerry Spence trial college and knows her business inside and out and as stated her standards of ethics are something I have never seen before. When she speaks you are getting it straight. She will work with you financially and explain everything that you are signing, unlike the attorney I have hired after leaving Ms. Macklin.
I so wish I could have her back on my case. I am now feeling like I am in really big trouble even though I feel my case is very winnable.
So bottom line is look no further. Choosing an attorney is one of the most difficult things you will ever do. Your butte is on the line and you want someone who is truthful, honest and really cares.
The someone, believe me is Ms. Cynthia Ann Macklin.

Ms. Macklin was described by my son as his "angel." She is the most amazing attorney I have ever dealt with in my life. Besides being very professional, she is warm and extremely knowledgable. She is the epitome of lawyers and I would trust her with my life.

Hesitant to call a lawyer for my legal issue, I was directed to Cynthia Macklin by a friend. Contacting her was the best decision I had ever made. Cynthia is extremely motivated, dependable and knowledgeable. If you are in need of a lawyer who truly knows the law look no further. I highly recomment her as a personal advocate and attorney.

While she is tough in the courtroom, she has a heart of gold in person. This attorney excels not just because of her expertise, but also because of her hard work and amazing spirit.

I hope to add details later - but want to get this much shared.
After General Contracting over decades, and Divorced more times than I care to share, I have met countless attorneys.
Ms Macklin is only one of few I would recommend and the only one available for Criminal Law.
Go meet her and find out for yourself.
If your straight with her, and fortunate enough to gain her representation, I look forward to reading YOUR referral later.

When Cynthia took my case she was extremely professional,helpful, and informative. She represented me with confiedence and continued to keep me positive throught the entire process. I would not have trusted anyone else to do the job, and can't thank her enough for all the hard work she has done for my husband and I. And becuase of Cynthia I have been able to move forward and still remain successful within my life, and through my mistakes.

Cynthia Macklin is a great attorney that is professional, respectful and honest. She has gotten traffic infractions dismissed for my son and many of his friends. EShe always takes the time to listen and answer questions. I highly recommend Cynthia and have many times. Her fees are very reasonable. She has helped to keep my son's driving record clean which kept his insurance rates down. It is definitely worth your time and money to hire Cynthia!

Cynthis Macklin was a pleasure to work with. She is relentless and creative. Ms. Macklin cares about and is committed to her clients. She's very honest, knowledegeable, and patient. Not only did she provide competent and professional representaion in court, she goes above and beyond her duties as a lawyer. I would reccommend her to anyone.

I am just a regular guy, and yet Cynthia Macklin did everything she could for me. What's so good about her is that she puts her all in every case. No matter how big or small the situation. When I came back from Iraq I received a few tickets. So I had the pleasure of seeing her in action a few times. Watching her is like watching poetry in motion, or Beethoven performing. Some are really good at what they do, and she is one of those people. I'd trust her with any situation that I am faced with in the future.

She took care of several tickets for me over the course of a year. Even when the case was somewhat complex she was able to build a valid defense and get the best result possible. Repsonse to my questions were very fast and the rates were very reasonable. MUCH BETTER than several other lawyers I have used...!

Cynthia was amazing!!! Over a year ago I got a DUI and after talking to friends and family I thought I was going to be SOL. Cynthia was recommended to me for having helped my boyfriend with a few tickets that she always rescued him from. Cythnia always kept me informed through out the ENTIRE process which really suprised me. in additong to keeping me informed Cythnia handled my ignorance very well. I can't tell you how many times I had to have her explain the paperwork to me, yet she was so patient! So with all that said, I would highly recommend Cythnia. She was very proffesinal, efficient and affective, all while being hands down AMAZING!

I am happy that I called Cynthia Macklin when I was looking for a attorney to help me with my daughter's situation. She was helpful from the start. Once she knew the circumstances my daughter was involved in Cynthia showed compassion for her and went to work on what had to to be done to resolve the issues. I felt Cynthia was honest with me and never told me more than what she was capable of doing for the case. She worked only with facts and was very diligent with her ability to get to the point which concluded with a victory for our case. I recommend Cynthia to anyone that is in need of counsil that will take control and stand up for your interests.
Thank you, Cynthia!

Being in law enforcement, a pending DUI charge had implications beyond the criminal charges. I "shopped" a famous Bellevue DUI attorney and was surprised to learn he was unaware of the range of pleas offered defendants based on their BAC test result. Cynthia not only knew this information, her fee was considerably more reasonable. I hired her on the spot and have never regretted the decision. Her representation was outstanding, from handling court appearances to fighting for me in innumerable conferences with the prosecution. Her professionalism and expertise yielded a positive outsome for me, and I highly recommend her services.
