Having Cherie represent me for child custody and divorce issues has been the best decision I ever made. She has integrity, is dependable, extremely competent and worked hard to get results. I appreciate the fact that she was very accessible to me during this trying time in my life. She truly cares about her client's best interest and it made a difference in my case. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of a reputable family law expert.

I was her client. She represented herself as a family law expert when in fact she is a criminal law attorney with limited knowledge in family law. She failed to keep me abreast of her charges and blindided me with a huge bill. She lost part of my file and has yet to find and rerun it. I do not recommend this attorney if you are looking for a family law attorney.

Cherie Brenner came highly recommended and she has certainly lived up to her reputation as an outstanding lawyer. She has a unique blend of being compassionate yet tough and her no nonsense approach to reaching a settlement certainly saved me a lot of time and money. It is rare to find a lawyer who is more interested in supporting her client than lining her pockets with high legal fees. Cherie is an excellent negotiator and her background in criminal law allowed her to quickly identify the deceptive tactics that my husband and his lawyer were trying to use. Cherie always maintained her high degree of professionalism and integrity and she never stooped to the silly, underhanded tactics of opposing council. I could not have made it through the divorce process without her guidance and support. She is a tremendous lawyer and I consider myself fortunate to have had her as my council.
