Cynthia Lazar is a very nice, professional, responsible and respectable person. I felt very comfortable and not pressured. Everything was settled fast and smooth. -Olga
Going through a divorce is not easy. I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy. Many sleepless nights, emotions running wild, and sometimes just not thinking right. Cynthia, with her soft yet stern voice of reason, kept me level headed during the divorce process. -Jerome R.
