A Super Human With Superhuman Powers

She saved my life! …a few times. Once as an adult. 3 or 4 times as a juvenile & all dismissed or expunged! I know my juvy record was clear because when I joined the military, I had an extensive background check for top security clearance and they came up with nada. All juvy charges were minor ones mostly related to drinking underage and fake IDs.

BUT for the adult incident, I honestly thought my life was done and over with. Consequences were BAD…really bad. I was guilty AND they had the evidence to prove it. I really considered fleeing the country…If I didn’t have Cynthia, I probably would have. But I did have her and she went about defending me with methodical precision. One domino after the next. And slowly but surely my options looked better and better. It took a looong time but at the end of the day she hit home.

No supervised probation, no jail time, no snitching, no fines, no anything. All I had to do was not get arrested for few years and it would go away. Well it’s been a few years now and I’m 100% free and clear. My only consequences were the horrific anxiety I experienced and the money it took to defend me, which I’d gladly pay again and again and again.

I just want to thank Cynthia. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you so much for all you’ve done for me! You are a Super Human with superhuman powers. Nobody could have done what you did and I believe that with every fiber of my being. You gave me a second chance at life and I will be forever grateful!

Top Notch Defense

You need this law firm on your side! Miss Sherwood provided me an absolute topnotch legal representation. I reached out to her on a domestic matter which included a temporary order of protection falsely obtained against me that kept me away from my child. She took charge of the situation from the very first meeting, followed the facts of the case, and was very empathetic and understanding. The order was dismissed after the first hearing, dismissal was appealed and Miss Sherwood successfully defended me again, the appeal was dismissed. Brooke and Jaime were amazing and very personable as well. I am happy with their work and I highly recommend this law firm for your legal needs.

“Cynthia Was A Bulldog In The Courtroom”

I hired Cynthia Sherwood to represent me for an Order of Protection case. Due to the complicated nature of the case, it required a lot of her time for preparation on short notice. Cynthia jumped right in and went to work preparing for defense. We had hundreds of pages of evidence. Cynthia combed through every page of evidence, and had the PROOF that I was innocent ready to go when we got to court.

On my court date, there was so much evidence that Cynthia practically had to back the truck up to the courthouse to unload all of it. With the overwhelming amount of evidence that Cynthia had prepared for court, she was able to present the court with an argument that ultimately proved the petitioner was a compulsive liar, and confirmed my innocence. Cynthia was a bulldog in the courtroom. Within moments of beginning her cross-examination of the petitioner I already knew with confidence that I would win the case. Cynthia knew exactly the right questions to ask while both the petitioner and myself were on the witness stand.

While at the courthouse, I noticed that Cynthia is very well connected in the legal community. Lawyers and judges recognized her and spoke to her with a great deal of respect.

Cynthia Sherwood did all of this work representing me for a very fair flat rate fee. Cynthia never complained about all of the hours it took to prepare for court, and never once tried to charge any additional fees. I know that Cynthia had my best interests in mind throughout the entire process.

The Best At What She Does

Hiring Cynthia was the best decision I could have made when I was going through an order of protection case with my partner. I was very anxious and distraught and she was very reassuring and confident. She took my case with less than a week notice. Cynthia went through hundreds of text and emails for my case and even met me on a Saturday. She was able to get my case dismissed. The office was very professional and made you feel confident that you were in good hands. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Cynthia Sherwood Is A Lifesaver!

Cynthia is as good of a lawyer as you’ll see on any episode of Law & Order, How to Get Away with Murder, or any TV show. She is sharp, witty, comical, relentless, relational, and pays exceptional attention to detail.

2 months before I was set to graduate from college, I was falsely accused of sexually assaulting an acquaintance of mine. At first the false claims against me were only used to get me thrown out of my fraternity, which was hurtful but not 1000% destructive. Just after the sham fraternity hearing ended, I was informed by the Title IX office that I was under investigation for sexual assault. They told me that if I was found guilty, I could be suspended or expelled from my university, and potentially not be awarded the college degree I worked 4 years for. I was absolutely devastated. My mom and I knew nothing about Nashville defense attorneys, so I went on Google, found 7 different attorneys, and sent them pleading emails asking for guidance. Cynthia told me not to speak to anyone and told me to come to her office the very next day for a free consultation. When I got to her office, I was instantly comfortable. Cynthia’s office manager, Brooke, treated me with such kindness, instantly calming me. Cynthia met with me, asked for the whole story, and took a chance on me. Boy, am I glad. Over the next few months, Cynthia and her team spent countless hours helping me formulate my responses to Title IX, attended my meetings with me, talked to my family and school for me, and worked tirelessly to prove my innocence. Cynthia’s top paralegal, Jaimee, sharply inserted powerful suggestions and made sure that our work was flawless in both content and form. Davis, another lawyer on Cynthia’s team, thought outside the box and came up with a hugely important idea that turned the tide of the investigation 30 minutes before our biggest meeting. We walked into that meeting with over 80 pages of evidence in my defense, compared to about 15 for my accuser. Every angle was covered, and that is a credit to the entire team. One of the best parts about Sherwood Boutique Litigation is that you get the support of their small, yet fiercely feisty team.

Cynthia cares about her clients to her core. Sometimes in a lawyer this would be seen as a weakness, but with Cynthia it is her greatest strength. She went the extra mile for me countless times and made sure that my mental wellbeing was taken care of in addition to my case. Cynthia’s communication skills are almost otherworldly. She has the ability to be tough on someone and make them crack under pressure, but she also has the ability to sweetly cajole someone into telling the truth while making them feel so comfortable they don’t know what they just revealed. Most importantly, she has the tact to know when to employ each strategy. Cynthia can truly do it all. She persuades with emotional appeals, establishes credibility in a variety of ways, and builds her cases using mounds of evidence. She’s the furthest thing from a one trick pony!

Cynthia Sherwood is my advocate, my lawyer, and my friend. She cares about me as a human being and gave her entire heart, mind, and soul to my case. When I was found innocent, I screamed and cried with such joy, thanking God that He led me to Cynthia Sherwood. She saved my life, and if you make the decision to hire her when you’re in a jam, she just might save yours too.

Sherwood Boutique Litigation For The Win!

I am extremely satisfied with the way that Sherwood Boutique Litigation handled my case. The entire team was very professional. My first meeting with Cynthia Sherwood went incredibly well. She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable through the entire process. I felt that she had my best interest at heart. I left the meeting feeling confident that I would be satisfied with the outcome of the case. In the courtroom, Cynthia handled herself like a veteran. Her years of experience were quite evident. After two days in court, we won my case and I couldn’t have been any happier. Hiring an attorney was an unexpected expense for me, but having the support of a competent legal team is worth the money spent. If you’re looking for a competent legal team that can get you the results you need, Sherwood Boutique Litigation is the way to go.

Attorney Who Will Fight For You

Cynthia Sherwood was referred to me by another attorney and once I met her I fully understood why? She is everything you want and more in someone you want to be in your side fighting for what is right. Ms Sherwood is fearless. Her office was organized and kept me up to date on everything.

A Super Lawyer!

If you are in need to hire a law firm, you owe it to yourself to read this entire statement.

When you feel that you are writing a review of a family member instead of a law firm, you realize that you found a needle in a hay stack , something truly unique. The firm’s and Cynthia’s reputation as the best in Nashville and years of experience speaks loudly of their qualifications which, if anything, are humbly understated.

I went through a stressful, very emotional and difficult period of over a year with tumultuous up and downs and Cynthia, and later Davis, were always there supporting, cajoling and advising at a level that sometime even family members are unable to reach.

Life, conflicts or even sometime the legal system, can go against you when you least expect it and then is when you need true experts. As a professional executive business coach, I know what personalized attention should be, but the level of support I received was exceptional. The amount of legal work during and after hours including weekends, e mails, texts, phone calls and meetings practically guaranteed winning my (our?) case. Cynthia many times understood what I felt better than I did and was there throughout this whole period with such empathy that made me realize I had someone that cared always available and attentive . A Super Lawyer!

Just being greeted by Brook at the front door makes me comfortable, knowing she represents the rest of the team, a firm with a superb leadership, a culture of values and a flexible holistic approach aligned to the client’s needs. When Cynthia was not available for a period of time, I was very nervous but Davis Griffin stepped in with such enthusiasm and hard work that I couldn’t be more satisfied with his performance.

I was awarded my Order of Protection against a person that kept stating he always got off because of his money, but there is faith and trust to counter that. When this firm gets involved, the only drive on their mind is winning and justice.

The thickness of the folder Davis brought to court got him a snide remark from the opposite lawyer.He found out why it was so thick later when we did win.

Cov 19 or not, leaving the court, I wanted to hug all of them. I found real friends.
5 stars plus, plus, plus. I would recommend Sherwood Boutique Litigation to anyone in need.
