A TOUGH, NO FRILL, NO HAND HOLDING COMPETENT ATTORNEY
Went to Cheryl Young years ago with a tough case. She was no nonsense from the beginning. Direct, insightful, ETHICAL ( vs the others out there), and did the job most efficiently. She was always honest and prepared. She does not like to play around with nonsense and is sharp on her feet and well respected in court. Once you get passed her rough demeanor, she is just the best one out there and worth every cent. I would have never gotten this far without her and she cleared the way and made the case balanced.

Really helped my case
After 2 years of major court issues and having to change lawyers because of not getting work done and over billing, I hired Ms Young for family divorce issues with my ex who would not follow the rules. She is honest, direct and cleaned up the mess others left in a short period of time. And helped stabilized our kids school issues and finances. She is top of the line and worth every cent.

Finally an honest solid lawyer !
I used Ms Young in a terrible divorce after 2 prior lawyers who did nothing. Ms young was compassionate but solid in every way. Worth every cent and she made it fair vs a battle like the other lawyer tried. She commands respect and I am very appreciative

Restores your trust in lawyers!
Ms Young represented me in a very hard divorce and custody. I did not think I had much of a chance because the other side created so much drama. . She is tough, HONEST and no nonsense so be ready for her sharp tone. I court, she is brilliant and respected. She got me 100% more than I expected in PA knew --all by following the law and doing a great job. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Top of The Line Attorney after some real losers....
Cheryl Young is tough, honest and very ethical. Does not " nickel and dime you" like the others. She knows her stuff and handles herself and me, the client with a hard line but always on target. She gets the job done and hates the " petty" arguments and has no tolerance for the other side's " bad behaviors". Just a solid lawyer in this arena of crazy ones who are out for the cash only....

Agile Mind. An Attorney who thinks on her feet!
Ms. Young represented me in a family court/ child custody matter. She gained my trust after our first one hour meeting: she was a great listener, and empathic. This is in stark contrast to the way in which she litigated in court. She was very tough, agile in asking probing questions--she thinks very well on her feet. Opposing parties were quite evasive, but Ms. Young was able to get the facts and present them to the court in a logical manner by asking both me and the opposing party those questions that cut through the extraneous information. She was very quick at getting things done--didn't waste anyone's time (a great asset when in family court at present hourly rates!). One caveat I found was that she does not like the continuing small "battles" that sometimes occur in very adversarial cases. She is very good at starting and ending a dispute; however, when problems keep arising (as in the minority of custody cases), she would rather not continue to litigate. I think that this is a good strategy in a family lawyer; however, not all cases are easily resolved. Overall, she is an outstanding attorney, very knowledgeable and a great litigator--she can very quickly and succinctly gather and present pertinent information: she thinks on her feet!

CHERYL YOUNG IS THE BEST OUT THERE
Cheryl Young is the best lawyer I have ever dealt with in all my professional years. She is 100% ethical, tough but fair, and knows the law and negotiation but would never sell out her client. She only advocates within the confines of the law and will defend her client vigorously but not at the abusive level of many. She is just great and has helped my hopeless case come full circle. SHE NEVER STOPS TILL JUSTICE PREVAILS

Unimpressed
In a complicated financial case involving businesses, and other large assets, where this lawyer was recommended, I found she did as little work as possible. She responded to my questions with terse emails. Did not conduct discovery, did not find out the true worth of assets, we had toward 4 way meetings which were a waste of time.

Moving on
One word or terse answers to emails. I was presented with a poorly written agreement drafted by opposing counsel and I was asked to sign it without modification. She is very expensive and I got little accomplished. Every motion/petition she filed for me was denied.

Big name and fees; no results
Had to fire her. She delayed my divorce by at least a year by moving so slowly and by failing to provide my disclosure documents to opposing counsel. She was non-responsive, expensive, and unhelpful. Her replacement got the job done in a few months.
