I had a difficult divorce & custody case with an extremely uncooperative former spouse. While seemingly all the wrong was on his side (adultery, mistreatment, hiding girlfriend and extra children) and, by all accounts, it should have been an easy case, his lawyer was very smart in handling his case and always being on the attack. My previous attorneys at what I thought was a fairly reputable firm were not as experienced, and the firm kept going through them like hotcakes, so my last attorney didn't even try to get to know the case. I had almost lost hope. Then, I had a family meeting with my supportive parents and brother, and we decided that we were going to make one last stand for my child's sake. I went to one of the best divorce/custody law firms in the Fairfax area, met with a partner who highly recommended Cindy for my case, looked up Cindy on Avvo (and was happily impressed by her reviews), and my entire case turned around from there. Cindy was supportive and professional, realistic, thorough, and very responsive. We made a clear plan of what I wanted, what was best for my child, what we knew, what we suspected, and how we'd go about doing it. With Cindy, I no longer felt quite as much anxiety about receiving almost daily demanding emails from my former spouse - I would just forward them to Cindy, and she would let me know if I needed to respond or not, and how to do it. My life and my child's life changed for the better almost immediately. We were no longer on the defensive, and, finally, after almost three years since my separation (only the last year was with Cindy), I had my divorce. In the middle of my time with Cindy, she opened her own law firm with two partners, and I gladly went with her.
Note for budget-conscious people: the rates of excellent lawyers are high. This is a simple fact. But, honestly, it's the best investment you'll make. The lawyers I had previously had slightly lower rates, but they wasted so much time and sent me backwards in my case, that, at the time I switched over, my parents and I were out tens of thousands of dollars with my case worse off than when we had started it. Once I was with Cindy, I saw that every penny I spent was used wisely to bring my case forward to get the results I wanted.
Apologies for the long review - I hope it helps someone in choosing lawyers. I know reading these review was important for me when I decided to switch.

I seldom write reviews but in the case of Cynthia I'm going to make an exception.
Cynthia M. Radomsky from the very get go was very articulate and her empathy helped in me explaining my situation.
She offered various options and not once did she rush me or ignore me, whether by email or in person.
I would highly recommend her.

I have communicated with different family matter lawyers, none of them were able to get the job done until I have met with Cindy. She is a very strong, honest, and skilled lawyer, fully knowledgeable of the court procedures and rules. Cindy was able to help me to get things in the right path after was draft in the wrong direction, she was able to deal firmly with my wife's lawyer and get us into settlement very much as we wanted it, only within four months after hiring her. She knows how to handle pressure and turn things around for her client's benefit. I highly recommend Cindy for those who have long and tough cases in court and/or dealing with harsh opponents, she will fix things up.
