While helping some of Cindy’s clients with the disposition of their matrimonial home, many of them have expressed that although it’s a stressful time, Cindy has been in their corner and made sure their interests were fully protected. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to contact Cindy for a consultation to see if she can help with their specific family law matter.”

Annette was very professional and yet so approachable!!
I know I won’t go through that process again however if anyone out there is contemplating a separation, I would truly suggest you contact Annette Nyland. I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed.”
“I can unreservedly recommend Carolyn Chambers as a legal counsel in the field of family law. My particular domestic situation when I began to work with her was complex, challenging and far from straightforward. The resolution looked to be a long way off. However, Carolyn was able to resolve the outstanding issues and realize my objective in a timely, expeditious and cost-effective manner. Throughout she remained calm, focused and respectful- and bold and decisive when the situation warranted. I would not hesitate to work with Carolyn Chambers again.”
“I have just recently finalized my family law case with my ex-husband. Carolyn was my lawyer. I am so thankful to her as she guided me through the process, every step of the way. She is professional, intelligent and caring. She was always patient and took the time to explain to me all processes and always returned my emails and calls promptly. She was very reasonable but strong when she represented me in court. Carolyn was my second lawyer. Her fees were very reasonable and she did everything possible to settle my case in a fair and timely way. I am very pleased with my settlement. I have already referred people to Carolyn and will continue to do so. She was wonderful. Thank you, Carolyn!”
“Carolyn and her team helped me with my divorce. I always felt that she had my best interests at heart, and was able to provide a calming presence throughout the process. Highly recommend her.”

Making matters much more challenging than they already were. Thankfully I am pleased with the overall outcome and conclusion of my matter and would highly recommend Carolyn to help you through your legal process.”
“Referred to me by a friend, Annette Nyland and her clerk are an amazing team. I was with another law firm for a little over 2 years and things were not looking good.

“Huge thank you to Cindy for helping a guy who, admittedly, is not Family Law knowledgeable. I’ve struggled for many many years attempting to navigate through the child support process – at times embarrassed, stressed – often angry. Cindy provided me with professional guidance through the process via question and answer which generated the necessary forms leading to a fair and reasonable final agreement. I’ve only ever wanted fair and reasonable, never sure how to achieve this. Reaching out to Cindy was the best thing I could have done towards achieving fair and reasonable agreement. I’m highly recommending Cindy assist others like me – seriously guys, ask for help. Thanks again.”
“I went to Cindy several years ago during a difficult period in my life. Divorce is never easy. She was professional, compassionate and understanding of my needs. Got the job done with minimal hassle. My partner who was going through a difficult divorce himself finally retained Cindy and her team. Again she was able to understand his needs and communicate to the opposing party’s lawyer what he wanted. Sometimes the cheapest lawyer isn’t the best lawyer. You get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Cindy and her team to anyone who is going through a divorce and wants it handled professionally.”
“I have recommended Cindy Scharff (family lawyer) to various clients over the years and always with great feedback. Cindy is experienced and extremely knowledgeable, and yet she is still so approachable and easy to talk to. When you are going through a challenging and emotional time like a separation, having an empathic lawyer who knows family law like Cindy, makes it all just a little easier. Cindy is my go-to person for anyone I know who needs solid family law advice. Definitely not your typical lawyer experience.”
