Outstanding Professional
I would highly recommend Cynthia Garnholz as a family law practitioner. Having known and worked with her for nearly a decade, I believe she has the experience, knowledge, intellect and dedication to represent her clients successfully. An empathetic nature makes her exceptionally suited for family practice law. In addition, her ethics are of the highest standard. She has earned my trust and absolute respect.

I would recommend Cynthia Garnholz
I hired Cynthia about a year ago to re-do my will, trust and powers of attorney. I thought she was thorough, she answered all my questions, the work was done when promised and at a reasonable price. Cynthia is professional and trustworthy beyond question.
