Ms. Mendoza was very informative and made me feel very comfortable, despite the situation I was in! She kept in touch with me regularly and got things done quickly! I highly recommend her!

What I had hoped for and much more
I hired Ms. Cynthia Mendoza to represent my son, who was going through a challenging time in his life and had made some very poor decisions. In addition to being professional and extremely responsive, she was very sensitive to my son’s needs and took the time to get to know him and truly understand his situation. I view Mrs. Mendoza as more then competent, very thorough with her research, effective with both her written and verbal communication and sincerely kind, caring and compassionate. She was very realistic and never sugarcoated any facet of this process. However, we felt an immediate sense of ease upon meeting with her for the first time. Because of Ms. Mendoza’s talents, skills and her relentless efforts, by son’s charges were dropped. I have worked with a number of attorneys professional and a few personally and without a doubt, Ms. Mendoza is one of the best. I hope I do not have to use a personal attorney in the future, but if I do, I will not hesitate to rehire Ms. Cynthia Mendoza.

2nd degree felon turned misdemeanor!
Cynthia got me out of what I had truly believed was a hopeless situation. I am strangely beyond happy to serve my sentence, knowing it was originally a much more serious charge. She was very understanding throughout the year figuring things out and communicating clearly with me, and I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends in a pinch!

Exceeded Expectations
I decided to select Cynthia to represent me after a consultation with her because of her friendly and professional demeanor. Ms. Mendoza showed genuine concern for my situation during the entirety of the affair and negotiated an outstanding solution that is allowing me to move on from this incident.

Great attorney
Cynthia was very informative and helpful. She is very down to earth and will give you real expectations. She didn't sugar coat anything when giving me information on my daughters situation. Living so far away it gave me comfort knowing she was close by to take care of my girl.

Took care of buisness
Ms. Mendoza handled my case this past year as well as a few years ago on a separate charge and both times she was very helpful. I always recommend her to anyone I know facing legal problems. Not only is she very professional but also courteous.

Cynthia Mendoza
Cynthia is very passionate about what she does & makes it her priority, to not only get the job done, but also makes sure your concerns, questions and even doubts are at the top of her list. Cynthia gets back to you promptly, always has an open door, and when anything needs to be addressed, takes time out of her day to do so personally. From speaking with her upon hire, she has this "doesn't back down" persona and a will to do whatever it takes to make sure justice is being represented and served correctly. I highly recommend Ms. Mendoza to anyone in need of legal consultation and/or representation.

My first meeting with Cynthia was very informational. She explained clearly what her capabilities were and her specific intentions with my case. Cynthia was very professional and organized. She made it clear I was a priority as a client and always put my specifications first by legal bounds when bargaining my case. I was very impressed with her legal abilities.

Atty Mendoza was very formative on everything. She walked us through what would be done on the day of court. She genuinely cares for her clients and being a mother I needed that. Hopefully I won't need her again lol but if I do I would definitely hire her again.

DWI case
Very honest upfront and direct. Pleased with her attitude and friendliness. She worked very hard with language barrier but was successes, overcame with passion with her job. She knows the law and well presented. I wish many were like her that she put much effort to go out of her way. While in court she was well like and respectful, make my case much easier to work with. She stayed with me even to the jailhouse as assured me everything is going to be fine. She knows what questions to be asked, such a smooth transition but after all this was done my case was close and dismissed. I truly recommend her to any client that need direct approaches and knowledge. If she doesn't, she will either learn it or refer someone in that line of work. Very pleased and honor that she Is my attorney!

Excellent Lawyer
Mrs. Mendoza did an excellent job for me when I needed someone I could trust. I didn't know her at the time, but a friend recommended her to me. I needed someone to take my case, but not just anyone. I usually trust my first impressions and when I met her I felt I could trust her. Since that moment on, she worked incessantly and showed a great dedication to my case. She is a very smart lawyer but what I want to convey to whoever reads this post is that you can trust this lawyer. She didn't let me down, and I am sure she won't let you down either. I am very grateful for her help and support during the whole ordeal and she always kept me informed and advised me every step of the way. She is honest and has a very high level of integrity and professionalism. You cannot go wrong with her.
