I contacted Cynthia to help me with a co-habitation agreement. I was worried how I could protect my assets, in the event my relationship failed. Cynthia was incredibly knowledgeable, gave me expert advice, and kept the entire situation positive and fun for both my partner and me. I highly recommend this experienced, talented and very smart woman for any sensitive family law issue. It is times when a person is most emotionally involved in their situation when a calm, patient, and confident attorney is most needed.

After first representing me 10 years ago, JD First abandoned me 5 weeks prior to a simple child support modification arbitration even after running up huge fees chasing a dead end. She knew it was wrong and refunded me some money and put together a huge binder and completed the briefs, and offered to coach me. But I had to present my case pro se while facing deadbeat dad and his lawyer. I was not successful and she harmed my interests by her actions. She had suggested that I postpone the action to get new counsel in spite of having spent a whole year up to the child's 17th birthday. This followed many months in which she did not respond to my requests to meet or have a phone call. I even had to chase down her staff to get them to do things by deadlines. Her office manager is adept at eye rolling, arms crossing, and interrupting condescendingly. Avoid this dreadful group or regret it.

Cynthia is great to work with we came into a few hiccups and she smoothed them out and made me feel at ease through this stressful process. She definitely knows here stuff. Her staff was great with questions I had and was always pleasant.

Cynthia represents me in a divorce and custody case that is unpleasant and complicated. Cynthia and her staff have seen this all before and they simply proceed with intelligence and dignity. She has been compassionate with me but also realistic and straightforward, which I appreciate. Cynthia takes my concerns seriously and addresses them. She is proactive, not reactive, and she is a strategic thinker. Even when she is really busy with other cases, she finds time for me if the need arises. I'm doing better in court since she took over my case and I also feel more confident in a situation that causes one to feel extremely vulnerable. I would recommend Cynthia highly to anyone who needs a family law attorney. I really trust her.

Cynthia is the best attorney ever! She listens and cares about her clients. She is super efficient and gets the job done. She doesn't take weeks to give you a update either. She works hard for each and everyone of her clients apart from having a great sense of humor! would recommend Cynthia to anyone who needed a excellent attorney if I needed her services in the future there would be no doubt that I would attain her again.

I am involved in parenting litigation with someone who plays dirty. Cynthia's representation of me has been compassionate, dignified, trustworthy, and SUCCESSFUL. She always tries to cooperate first, but if that doesn't work, she fights hard. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

From the moment I met Cynthia and her team, I felt comfortable and supported. Though my divorce and custody arrangement were neither contested nor especially complicated, there were a few times where Cynthia's calm voice and solid knowledge helped move the process forward when it stalled. She was always prompt in responding to my questions. I would definitely recommend Cynthia for any family law issue.

As a man getting a divorce for the fist time .My concerns and worries were quickly put at ease. Cynthia was recommended to me by a friend .She has changed the way i feel about attorneys .Rather than care about the bill she was more concerned about me the person and not my wallet. Very sweet lady which concerned me at first because i didn't want someone that would be pushed around in the court room .I quickly found that she can be the one that does the pushing . when it came to the bill and money or other expenses she never made it a big deal in fact i had to ask what i would owe ..she was more concerned about me and the out come of my divorce .Long story short it would be a smart decision for anyone to higher Cynthia and her team Thank you Mike

Her law firm is great! Everybody that I dealt with there was very knowledgeable and professional. Would definitely use them again, but hoping I don't have to!

Cynthia First did an outstanding job of helping us during a 3rd party custody case that lasted nearly 2 1/2 years. Cynthia and staff was responsive and kept us informed every step of the way. She is a fierce ally that you want on your side. Our case went all the way to trial, and we got everything we asked the court for.
We delt with nearly a dozen lawyers during our case and Cynthia was head and shoulders above the rest.
Hiring a lawyer is not cheap, and when you start paying for their services you want to feel like your getting something for you money. With the other lawyers we hired we felt like we got very little for our money. Most would charge you for asking the time of day. But when we worked with Cynthia First it was different. We felt like we could call or e-mail and ask simple questions without being charged for every second.
If you need to hire a lawyer for a family law case, I would strongly recommend calling Cylthia First first.
