Superior Attorney & Firm

Posted by Jill S.

Cindy Best and her Firm are Superior in their profession. I can not express enough the gratitude I feel towards Ms. Best and her Firm after the premium job they did with our case. No stone was left unturned. Every pertinent detail was presented. Ms. Best is top notch with her research and preparation. She is thorough and effective when working with clients and witness testimony. She is equally as thorough and effective when cross examining opposing party witnesses. Her experience with domestic violence has provided her with invaluable and reliable resources utilized for her clients. She is “no nonsense” and honest when relaying information and potential outcome for each situation that arose. The opposing party was beyond difficult and unethical. She handled them effectively as well. She and her staff are a pleasure to work with. Every single person there is a pleasure to work with and they really work as a Team. Words can’t describe the gratitude I have for Ms. Best and her team. Thank you All!

A very pleased Dad!

I am sure everyone says this but i had a very unique situation that required Cindy and her team to do research that was out of the oridnary for our custody case. They went above and beyond my expectations. Cindy and her team were able to help the judge to see things I have been trying to get others to see for years. In the end, my son is better off since we won our case and he is happier and healthier then ever which in the end.. is all we wanted. I went into the court process thinking since I am a Dad I would never get what I wanted but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Cindy saw the reality of our situation and fought hard for what was the best interest of my son. We have used other lawyers in the past that were too afraid to battle custody against my son’s Mother however, Cindy put all that aside and fought for the best interest of the child, she will continue to be our first and only choice in the event we need family law in the future.

I am so appreciative of what you have been able to do for my family. You exceeded my expectations of what I would receive from an attorney. You and your firm have been timely, understanding and compassionate throughout my family law matter. I would recommend you and your firm to anyone who had a family law issue.

Cindy’s knowledge, experience and professionalism are unmatched. Not only did Cindy provide the dedicated legal representation I needed but she did so with a personal touch that I never would have expected a law firm to provide. I highly recommend Cindy and her firm’s services for anyone going through a divorce or family law issue.

I was unaware of the whole divorce process and was afraid I was going to lose my children. Cindy guided me through the process and I was able to get 50/50 and see my daughter on her birthday. I am so happy with the outcome!!! Thank you!!!!

Cynthia, her associates and staff did an excellent job helping me settle some loose ends, in a difficult six year old divorce. She is a very experienced, knowledgeable Family Lawyer. I was happy with the outcome and would recommend Cynthia to anyone looking for an exceptional attorney.

Trustworthy and conscientious

Cindy prepared a will and living will for us, as well as reviewed other legal documents for us over the past five years. We have highly recommended her to several friends who have subsequently hired her. She has proven herself to be trustworthy and conscientious.

Thank You Cynthia!!

Divorce Mediation

“Ms. Best resolved my spousal maintenance issue with my husband and his attorney in two hours. She accomplished what the lawyers could not do in 9 months of litigation. I am very grateful for her help.”

Divorce With Children

“We hired this law firm to represent our son in trying to get joint custody. They did a fabulous job keeping us informed as to their plan each week.  I have to say I do not think my son would be enjoying his daughter right now with his 50/50 custody if it was not for this law firm.”

Custody And Father's Rights
