Fighting for Peace

When I first came to Cheryl, I was terrified to go through the judicial process.  She took the time to explain the process each step of the way.  She was sensitive to my emotional needs, yet professional and efficient.  Her strength and intelligence allowed me to trust her implicitly.  Like having a great doctor, I now have a great attorney.”

Cheryl aided me tremendously through my hardship. She is easy to talk to, personable, genuinely caring, and honest. I felt very comfortable and at ease in all of the encounters I had with her.  Thank you for your caring and dedication, Cheryl.

I couldn’t handle the creditors calling me anymore, being behind on my payments. I thought I would have to lose everything going through bankruptcy. I called Cheryl and she guided me through the complicated legal process of filing for bankruptcy. I was able to save my house and my monthly plan payments are very sensible. I’m no longer uneasy about answering my phone or opening my mail. Thank you for saving my life and making my year.


“When I went through a divorce a few years ago, I had such horrible experiences not only with the legal systems but with my own lawyer too! Now, Cheryl is my lawyer in my child custody and support case.  She has been able to help me and my ex-husband through mediation. Thanks to Cheryl’s hard work, I now have my kids back! Cheryl has always been there when I needed her.  I will always appreciate that.”

“My wife and I were in our final stage of her immigration petition.  We decided to go see Cheryl to review our application when she noticed that our application (prepared by a notary) was incorrect.  Cheryl immediately got to work on our application.  She and her husband put all of their knowledge and dedication into our application.  The outcome of all her hard work was very rewarding since my wife’s application was approved on the day of her consulate appointment.”

“Cheryl is personable, kind, and professional.  I always call her when I need legal services or advice. She takes her time, takes and returns my calls, and makes me feel like somebody understands me and has my back. She has successfully defended me in a landlord/tenant dispute and went to bat for me in a messy civil entanglement. I walked away with everything I wanted and my chin up. Cheryl understands BIPOC and isn’t afraid to stand up to systemic oppression in the judicial system. I feel like I have family with Cheryl.”

“Cheryl came highly recommended to me by a professional that I know.  From the first day, and throughout this process, she made me feel comforted.  She was there…with me every step.  Cheryl worked mornings, nights, and weekends when that’s what it took to meet any requirement. I trust Cheryl. With her help, a years-long situation finally resolved.  Again, thank you so much!”

“It was a pleasure having Cheryl as my immigration attorney.  My case had a terrible history with previous incompetent organizations and attorneys.  Cheryl was able to clean up my case, get me my green card, and follow through with my naturalization. Thanks to her, I’m now a U.S. citizen! Highly recommend.”
