She's a great lawyer; wonderful advice
I could've had a default judgement against me, as I waited beyond the response window, but Cindy jumped in and helped me navigate the system. Through her diligence and good advice, we negotiated a deal that we all could accept. My hat's off to her for her excellent work. I would highly recommend Cindy.

Great Attorney
First of All, I would like to thank Cindy for helping me with my case. I would consider my case a very complex one. It involved 2 different States with a child and an immigration aspect as well and a very stubborn opposite party. Cindy understands the Family Law very well and is very knowledgeable. Was always available when I needed her and ready to answer any questions that I had. I am so grateful of her and would suggest anyone that needs any legal help in Family Law.

Tough, Knowledgable, Amazing
Cynthia came into my case after 5 years of dealing with an extremely litigious ex. I had been to court many times and it all seemed to be a "band-aid" until the next time he filed. My ex is a bully and a narcissist. Cynthia handled him in 5 minutes. She shut him down and stood up to the bully. That first time she was with me in court I knew I finally had the help I needed. She knows the law like the back of her hand, which was tremendous in getting support re-established. I have referred many people her way because I'm that pleased and confident in her. She is amazing.

My best experience with a lawyer
Cindy stepped into the middle of my very complicated divorce and immediately started the process of clarifying and organizing the various issues. For the past year very little progress had been achieved with my previous (high priced) attorney. Within 60 days, my court ordered spousal support was eliminated and ultimately Cindy helped me reach a settlement that was hundreds of thousands better than I originally expected. She is professional, detail oriented and well respected. Her thoughtful, empathetic and swift responses gave me confidence that I would make it through the ordeal with a fair outcome.
