    Google Review By Scott Krencik: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Special thanks to Cinthia Manzano for her hard work in handling my case. I will gladly recommend the FJGG professionals to anyone.

    Google Review By Pam Morgan: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Cinthia came very highly recommended. I hired Cinthia on a recommendation of my realtor due to issues with the builder who would not complete warranty items. I was met with opposition and lack of cooperation from the builder. As soon as I hired Cinthia the tone changed dramatically for the good. She is very professional, knowledgeable about real estate, very good listener, reviewed a number of documents I had provided was very thorough about them and took action. It was a pleasure to deal with an attorney who knows the real estate law as well as she does. I always felt that I was in good hands. It was very difficult with the builder and she did not back away from them at all. As it turned out all warranty items and more were completed by the deadline she had given the builder and their attorney.

    Google Review By Frederick Huber: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ I have used Cindy Manzano from this Law Firm on several occasions for real estate related items. She has been nothing short of great to work with. She has kept in contact with me and informed of everything that was going on. I was truly impressed with her professionalism and scope of knowledge. I would recommend her and the Law Firm to anyone!
