Cindi did a great job keeping me informed about my case and its progress.

She was very helpful and knowledgeable and helped me understand everything I needed to know to help my divorce proceedings go as smoothly as possible. She was quick to respond to any questions I had. I would highly recommend her to anyone that was looking for a lawyer. – Kerri, divorce client (5 star review)
