Definitely recommend
Ms Mason took our cold call from Virginia and jumped right in to help. She spent weeks working on our behalf and kept us posted along the way. At the end of this effort she sent a detailed statement. Thank you

You could not be in better hands!
I could not be more pleased with her representation. When I consulted with her, I was ready to give up. I said "he can have it all, I just want out." She talked with me about being worn down by my situation...and my spouse. She fought for me when I was too tired and worn out to fight for myself. I heard she was a bulldog, which was what I thought I needed. When I met her, I was surprised at how kind, caring and compassionate she was. She is definitely passionate about helping people and truly cares about what her client's need, even when they are to tired do it themselves.

Highly ethical, great lawyer
I had her as my first attorney when I started divorce/child custody case. I had to switch attorney due to circumstances. I had spoken with and hired several attorneys including family law attorney and found her as the best attorney I came across. I wish I stayed with her. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. I know that it is extremely difficult to find a good attorney and person like her. She is highly ethical, will respond to all your e-mails and phone calls, and work diligently to obtain best result you want.

Not your average attorney!
I hired Ms. Mason for help for child support and other family law issues. The circumstances of my case are very unique, therefore I had a difficult time finding an attorney that was confident or innovative enough in their approach of my case. Ms. Mason met those expectations and more. She handled each detail of my case with class, intelligence, total compassion and confidence. She stays the course, knows the law and navigates through it with integrity. I highly recommend her for any area of law that she practices.

Great lawyer
My boyfriend hired her to help him gain custody of his children. She worked very hard on every detail of the case. They won the case and we were very happy with her. I would definitely recommend her to someone else.

The help I needed
At a time when I felt like I was being taken advantage of and that I could not solve an issue without guidance, Cynthia Mason was there. Cynthia was both very professional and easy to talk to. Her office worked in a timely manner to help me with a situation that I felt was out of my hands. She always seemed very honest and upfront with my case. She was easy to get in contact with, replied quickly, and was just all around helpful. I was debating if I needed to get a lawyer for my predicament, but I'm so glad that I consulted with her because I would have been stuck in a situation that I didn't need to be in. 10/10 !

Amazing Lawyer
Hiring a family law divorce attorney was something I never thought I'd have to do. It was a very tough time for me and for my children. Luckily, someone recommended Cindi Mason. She was very helpful, responsive and caring. She is all about family and especially the children. Her compassion for the families she works with and her knowledge of the of the law were exactly what I needed. She worked hard to reach a settlement for us, but my ex was unreasonable and didn't want to support his family. So, we had to go to trial. I was a little concerned that Ms. Mason would be aggressive enough to get the job done. But, all I can say now is WOW! She took control of the courtroom, and at the end of the day, I got more than I agreed to at mediation! I would recommend Cindi to anyone and everyone looking for a divorce attorney.

Thankful
I am so thankful to have found Cindi when I was injured. She told me exactly what I needed to know and what to do to help with my case. She was always available to answer my questions. She fought hard for me and her perseverance paid off! Cindi came highly recommended to me from another one of her clients. I'm so glad I took his advice, because I couldn't have been happier with how things turned out.

I asked for a Lawyer and they gave me a Tigress
I knew from the very beginning that my divorce would be contested, even hostile. There were issues with a disabled child, DSS child services, not to mention infidelity and some very real psychological issues on the part of my ex. I called the State Bar Association for a recommendation, a lawyer with experience in these areas, and specifically asked for one "with teeth". They connected me with Cynthia Mason, and I was immediately impressed with her. In one of the longest, most drawn out divorces I could have imagined, she was always on top of everything, armed to the hilt with data, both procedural and personal, at every turn, to counter each new twist my ex called into play, She also saved me from myself, with advice and instruction that kept me from making some key errors through my ignorance and frustration as delay after delay from my ex's side wore me down (her tactic of choice). With Cynthia's encouragement I stayed the course, and in the end I was awarded the house, and my children, with no alimony obligations and even a monetary award for support of our autistic daughter. Looking back, I now see that no other possible path would have resulted in so good an outcome, something that Cynthia never lost sight of, and I will be forever grateful to her, and to the South Carolina Bar for leading me to her.

All I can say is "AWESOME"
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CYNTHIA MASON TO ANYONE. SHE HELPED ME THROUGH A CUSTODY BATTLE AND WITH HER EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE THE COURTS WERE IN MY FAVOR. SHE KEPT ME VERY INFORMED AND UP TO DATE ON WHAT WAS GOING ON. SHE RESPONDED TO ALL OF MY EMAILS AND PHONES IN A TIMELY MANNER. SHE IS AWESOME IS ALL I CAN KEEP SAYING. IF I NEEDED HER DAY OR NIGHT WITH QUESTIONS SHE WAS THERE WITH ANSWERS. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A AWESOME LAWYER , LOOK NO FURTHER. SHE'S THE BEST..

If I Could Choose Zero Stars I Would
I waited three weeks for a phone consult with Ms Mason and paid for child care so I would have full attention during my 30 minute consult. I never received that scheduled call from the office and no one contacted me to cancel which is completely unacceptable. The only way I knew there was a problem was when I called ( after waiting 20 minutes) to ask why I hadn’t received my call and was rudely informed that the assistant and the lawyer were out sick. The receptionist could not explain why I wasn’t given a call, text or email to inform me my appointment was cancelled. Now I am out 25$ for infant care due to this inconsideration which is also compounded by the stress of an upcoming divorce. Please do not choose this lawyer through the SC Bar Referral Service!

Response from Cynthia Mason June 28, 2023
My sincerest apologies that we had to cancel your consultation. My receptionist and I were both out sick and I had someone filling in to answer the phones. I can assure you that is not a regular occurrence. I understand this is a difficult time and I would be happy to give you a free consultation due to the added stress our illnesses caused you. Again, my apologies. Cindi Mason
