Review of Cheryl Perkins
Cheryl Perkins was always professional, knowledgeable, and kept us very informed about what was happening. I could call her anytime and if not immediately available, she would return my call promptly. I appreciated her calm, conservative manner. I hope never to need an attorney in the future, but if I do, I would certainly call Ms. Perkins.

Compassionate and competent
Mrs. Perkins not only has a brilliant legal mind, she is more thorough and detail oriented than most in her field. She handled my case with the help of an engaging and energetic team of legal professionals. She is a most steady "hand" even in the violent storms that one might face in life. Cheryl was available and I was keep up to date on every aspect of my case. She provides a voice of reason and great compassion in a most personal manner. This is the attorney you want to trust in your time of need.
