Cynthia Herber's review
Ms. Herber was very professional. She was honest about what she could and couldn't do for me. She kept me informed of anything I needed to know. She is very knowledgeable in her field. She has a pleasant personality, easy to talk to.

Will go to the mat for her clients
I hired Cynthia Herber through her firm for assistance with handling the division of property between myself and my former partner when I had a no-contact order of protection in place against my former partner. She was great at helping me to secure the order of protection in the first place, as well, gathering a ton of evidence and building and airtight case. We were awarded the no-contact order of protection for four years under Cynthia's diligence. Cynthia was the intermediary and handled all of my ex partner's communications for me. She assisted in negotiating a settlement in order to secure a quit claim deed in my favor for the joint property my ex partner and I owned.

Immigration Attorney | Jul 17
Relationship: Other
"I interacted with Atty Cynthia Herbert, during a somewhat impromptu speakerphone teleconsultation involving and concerning a person, with limited English speaking capability, who was referred to me by a prior client for help with a criminal case (and, as I had learned upon meeting with him earlier, an immigration matter). During the teleconsultation, I was very impressed with Atty Herber's nuanced understanding of immigration law, familiarity with when and how it can intersect with Wisconsin criminal law, obvious Spanish/English fluency, ability to quickly and coolly analyze relevant background information, and willingness to formulate and commit to a reasoned course of immediate practical action, all under time pressure."
