Tonya Cromartie family law recommendation.
Over the past 5 years I have used Tonya Cromartie as my attorney for family law (Child custody cases x 2 and dissolution of marriage x 2) and some business law (Business slander) . She has always succeeded in my cases to my full satisfaction and when in the "heat" of the moment she has always been availble to offer services and support. This is so important, especially when dealing with emotions brought on by personal cases! Tonya is also excellent in mediation, two of my cases have ended in mediation saving on litigation costs and acheiving rewarding outcomes.Tonya has also offered extremely useful guidance in areas that she may not specifically work in and has always recommended excellent profesionals to assist!

Extremely Professional
I hired Tonya to help dispose of a case that had lingered for quite a long time and yet was still keeping me up at night. I think we spoke one time to convey the facts of the case, and she ultimately made it go away with little or no extra involvement on my part. Couldn't be happier with my choice of attorney!

Attentive, honest, compassionate and effective.
I contacted Tonya after being taken for money then ignored by Jeff Higgins. Tanya responded immediately, provided a copy of her clear agreement, and went to work as if I was her highest priority. Early and late, she provided updates at every turn. Knowledgeable and compassionate, she is a rare find in her variety of disciplines. Pleased, impressed and grateful...I highly recommend Tonya.

Ms. Cromartie helped me when I needed help the most. She is a rare combination of Compassionate and Down to Earth. Very results driven. As a father of two young sons, I could not be more grateful. My sons Kenny and Joshua are very happy she was able to help our family.

Excellent!!!
Tonya made sure things were started immediately in my case. She had things finalized and taken care of in less than a month. She is a go getter and knows the law as well as the people that need to be worked with to get the job done. Fabulous lawyer.

Awesome Attorney
Getting divorced is never easy. I was impressed, not only with the level of professionalism Atty Cromartie portrayed, but her compassion as well. She is highly educated and answers any questions you have quickly. She pays attention and has the best personality for the seriousness of her work. I highly recommend her legal counsel and am confident I have found my family attorney. Thank you!

Extremely competent and effective attorney
Tonya has helped me over many years on family law issues and a criminal case. She is very thoughtful and competent when handling the issues at hand and also explaining the benefits to pushing forward or holding back. Her years of experience really comes in to play when your back is against the wall. She will shoot you straight. She will be your best advocate. She will help you. I refer my friends to her because I know that will be given excellent advice and support. Keep up the great work!

Excellent DUI Attorney
Tonya is an extremely responsive, dedicated client advocate. Her immediate response to my case combined with her in depth legal knowledge assured me through out the entire process I was in the very best hands. I cannot thank her enough! She was extremely patient with me in answering all my questions along the way. And best of all, she got my charge dropped to wreckless driving.... which was nothing short of a miracle!! I'm forever grateful that Tonya represented me.

Amazing Job With My Criminal Case
Tonya did an excellent job quickly resolving my case. From the time we met to when my charges were dropped was all of a week. She was then able to advise me through the process of getting this case expunged from my record. Would highly recommend her for anything in the criminal field!
