Best First Call Ever!
Ms. Powers was the first attorney I reached out to based on her reviews. My 16-year old was charged with a DUI. Ms. Powers immediately answered and we discussed the case. She provided immediate details, discussed a payment plan, and officially represented my child. It was the best decision I made. Thank you so much for making this matter less stressful than what it was.

Okay, so she's pretty, BUT...
Traveled the world, met so many people, but wish I met THIS ONE as a friend BEFORE having to need her for a poor decision I made. The good news is she did more than just represent me, she helped CHANGE me.

DUI and Criminal Defense my experierence.
I will never get another attorney. She will be the only one my family and I will ever use. She is very persistant and proffesional. You are not just another case to her, she is very personable. She is very swift in accomplishing what you may need. I dont know what I would have done without her. She has helped me and my family tremendously.

One of the best out there!
Cheryl took on my case and kept me up to date the entire time. She did not make promises about the resolution and she was fair. She handled my case quickly and charged a more than fair amount to take the case. I highly recommend her!

Excellent Lawyer
Lawyer was professional and extremely aggressive in support of my case. Kept me well informed and was economically reasonable as well.

Highly recommended
Ms. Powers handled my case in a highly professional manner. She communicated all information in a timely fashion and was always responsive to my needs. She went beyond what I would expect of an attorney regarding rescheduling meetings, etc to fit my own shedule. She never made a commitment that she did not keep. I highly recommend Ms. Powers.

Unfortunately the lowest rating is a 1-star review.
Absolute waste of money! I was arrested in July 2014 for DUI with Serious Bodily Injury. I made mistake of hiring Ms. Powers as my counsel. In the beginning, meaning - prior to recieiving payment from me, Ms. Powers level of enthusiasm in taking my case and putting my best interest first was everything I sought after in an attorney. Then i made my $7,500 payment to her. Everything changed. I ended up getting a 56 month prison sentence followed by three years probation. This was my first DUI. I found out later that vast majority of people with same charge receive no more than two years prison. Most receiving only probation. Bottom line, please do not waste your money or trust with this person. I'm believer in karma. Gonna pray for you Cheryl.
