“[Reception] was very friendly and helpful on the phone. I couldn’t ask for a better paralegal! So friendly, hardworking, always helpful! Easy to reach & she is a blessing! I actually had 2 attorneys! Though I didn’t get to work with Cynthia as long, she listened to me, did what I requested, & supported me through the process! I never actually had to come to the office…I am so very thankful for all of the help that I received. It was a journey, but in the end I am very pleased. Thank you for helping those that are in need, especially when it comes to matters that effect children. I don’t take it for granted, I am truly thankful. It took a lot of time, energy, & things others can’t see you do every day for people like us. Thank you from my heart!! It makes a difference.” – CCLA client
