Not only a lawyer, but an aid
Cheryl is an incredible attorney and an incredible individual. I had met with a few attorneys prior to Cheryl for my divorce, but we were able to work together after we met. The best part of that meeting was when she discussed her willingness to assist versus fight through the process, was more than accommodating to my EX, but was able to turn up the heat after the EX decided to stop producing documents or cooperate. She was professional, caring, and effective. The divorce took longer than anticipated (COVID, non-compliance, etc.) and Cheryl not once made me feel forgotten or alone. If you are looking for a decent individual that will fight for what is right, advice you in the direction of the best option vs. the easiest option, and not leave you, then look no further for a partner to one of the hardest times you could be experiencing. Thank you again Cheryl.

I can't say good things about Cheryl. During the hardest time in my life Cheryl provided guidence and advice that made a huge difference in the outcome of my case. She takes her work not only seriously, but personally in many ways and will work tirelessly to advocate for you. I'm forever greatful to her, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help.

The best
I cannot express the gratitude I have for attorney Cheryl McCormick. While going through a difficult situation with my child's mother, I found myself needing the expertise of an attorney. Not only did I find what I needed but much more. Cheryl McCormick is beyond efficient. She was not just out to win the case she was looking out for what was fair not just for me but, for my child's wellbeing. She is always available to speak, no matter the time or day. Thanks to her I can now say I am a very happy dad !!!

You are important with Attorney McCormick
My husband and I hired Attorney McCormick to represent him in a child support modification case. From our first meeting to discuss our situation to our final appearance before the judge, she worked tirelessly on his behalf. She amazed me with her diligence, attention to detail and impressive knowledge of family law. Our case was handled professionally with a personal touch that is rarely seen from an attorney. I’m my opinion, she was heads and tails above any other lawyer I have dealt with. Attorney Cheryl McCormick is someone that you can trust and count on to do her absolute best for you.

Very Satisfied
Cheryl was very detailed and scrupulous with my case. She's very intelligent and easy to speak with. She was very patient with me as English is my second language. Cheryl made sure I understood 100% of what was being done or said. Cheryl was very protective in a very emotional situation.

Cheryl McCormick - Outstanding Family Law Attorney!
Dealing with an unexpected divorce has been one of the most difficult things I've had to deal with in life. Will I still be able to see my daughter as much as possible? Will I be left with enough money in my pocket to move on in life? These are the major issues (amongst others) that haunted me. I am incredibly grateful to have found Cheryl and use her through my entire divorce process. Cheryl is a true professional who has the knowledge, experience, and personality that will assure you that you are in good hands. She always explained everything to me, in a manner in which I could clearly understand. She is very quick to return phone calls and emails, and she even met with me on numerous occasions in convenient locations outside of her office. Cheryl was always a pleasure to deal with, but is tough and will not take any BS from the other attorney. During emotional times, Cheryl would reassure me that we would never agree to anything I was not comfortable with. She would even call to check on me just to be sure I was doing all right. She's extremely fair with her billing, and does not charge for quick emails, texts or phone calls. Divorce is tough, but trust me life will go on. I highly recommend Cheryl McCormick as your counselor if your life happens to take you down this difficult path.

Beyond pleased
If you need a family lawyer and you need one fast try giving Cheryl McCormick a call. I called her late one night and she got back to me the next morning not only that but I was unable to meet her at her office so instead of rescheduling we met somewhere in the middle she got straight to the point and didn't waste any time. Right off the bat I told her the solution I wanted out of this and it seemed like from that moment on her main objective wasn't about how much money she could take from me it was about getting to the solution that I wanted. She made it known that men have just as much equal rights in Family Court as women do and I am beyond pleased with the end results thanks to her i can watch my son grow up in to the awesome man he is going to become.

Intelligent, experienced, dependable and trustworthy.
I feel very comfortable recommending attorney McCormick. I would not have been able to get through the past year without her constant support. Ms. McCormick 's knowledge of the law and understanding of the courts system saved me from being taking advantage of. Cheryl’s has strong verbal and written communications skills, and for my case this was very important. Attorney McCormick was always available. I am in a much better place because of her.

Brilliant Attorney, dependable & highly capable advocate
Attorney McCormick displays continuous self control and a clear view and knowledge of the court system in the most heated, stressful times without fear or reservation to aggressively make a valid point. . Her professionalism and focus are her forte as well as her ability to navigate difficult personalities. She is impressive in the court room in front of a judge with her overall knowledge of the legal system and ability to make connections that allow for purposeful negotiations. Attorney McCormick has dug deep into my situation and has managed to prioritize and almost project what should and could happen in order for me to make decisions that would be in the best interest of my family. I highly recommend Attorney McCormick if you are looking to settle legal issues that will leave you a whole person. She is more than an Attorney to me she is now someone I will always think of and model after when I am making important decisions that effect others.

Tremendous Lawyer and Advocate
I would strongly recommend Cheryl as an attorney for anyone going through a divorce involving children, especially men. I came to Cheryl with a lot of open ended things from my divorce agreement (because I couldn't afford a lawyer when it was done with my ex). Cheryl took the time and met with me initially to point out a lot of openings that could come back to bite me in terms of time with my daughter. It was clear that from the beginning Cheryl wasn't looking to milk out billable hours with me, instead cutting right to the chase and having great communication with me over what I needed to take care of, and what her goals were with representing me. Cheryl would keep me informed every step of the way whether it be through email, phone calls, or text messages. She also was such an incredible advocate with my ex's lawyer for me and what I was looking for in this amendment to our original agreement. In the courtroom Cheryl was just as good as she was out of it. She was able to voice my concerns to the judge in our case in a manner that I was unable to. In the end Cheryl was able to help me through the amendment process and get things straightened up and put in writing that I was unaware needed to be. Like I stated previously, I would highly recommend Cheryl for an attorney, specifically for men going through a divorce.

Excellent legal services.
Attorney McCormick displayed an extraordinary knowledge of Divorce / Family law. As a client, Attorney McCormick always, and I mean always, made herself accessible to me, either in person, by telephone, or by text messaging. I always felt that Attorney McCormick kept me well informed and fully aware of any actions she was taking, on my behalf, within the court system. The professional attitude and calm demeanor that Attorney McCormick displayed absolutely put me at ease during a most stressful and unpleasant episode in my life. I have and will continue to recommend Attorney McCormick to my friends and relatives, in need of exceptional legal services.
