I was extremely satisfied with how Cynthia handled my case. She was very personable and her knowledge of the law clearly showed in the way she interacted with the District Attorney and the Judge. Well worth every penny we paid. You truly get what you pay for, I hope I never have to retain her again, but I would choose her firm again without any hesitation.
I am very grateful to Cynthia and her paralegal for taking the time to speak with me and answer my question even though I was unable to hire her at this time. I found her to be knowledgeable and confident, everything you could want in a lawyer.

Very knowledgeable attorney
Cynthia is a very confident but reserved attorney, she had the respect of the judge I was in front of, that helped a great deal as he listened and repressed the officers testimony.
Best attorney around
Cynthia is an amazing attorney! I was facing my first DWI and I was scared to death. I was so scared I would lose my job. Cynthia made sure to answer every question I had from the very beginning. She put my mind at ease. I was always able to contact her and her staff to get my questions answered. The case ended better than I could ever hope for! She won my MVD, even with the cop showing up. And then my case got dismissed because she was able to stop the officers from testifying! It was such a relief and Cynthia was awesome. I never even went to court! I’d not only hire Cynthia again if I ever needed to, I’d recommend anyone with a criminal problem to call Cynthia. She’s worth it! Thanks Cynthia!
