Ms. Cloninger assisted me in understanding a Florida real estate matter even though she is located far from the property in question. Her advice was clear, concise, and greatly appreciated.

Mrs. Cloninger has been our personal attorney for a good twenty-five years. There have been a number of occasions where we have contacted her for real estate, estate, and personal matters. She has always handled our legal issues with respect, confidentiality, and the expertise needed in each and every situation. My husband and I have recommended her to our friends and colleagues in need of legal representation. She has an admirable work ethic and honest manner that is a rare commodity in today's workforce.

Ms. Cloninger and staff have been crucial to my business and I would recommend them to anyone. Each time they have provided services for me, I have felt that they have pursued my interests as if they were their own. They are accessible, hardworking and, above all else, have the integrity you look for in a law firm.

I endorse this lawyer. Having known this attorney the past 35+ years of her career, I can say without reservation that she's a great person to have on your side. She introduces a hefty dose of common sense where technicalities can sometimes make things more complicated than they need to be. If you need to get the job done legally and sensibly, check in with Evelyn Cloninger.
