Kimberly Stamatelos, Attorney & Mediator Stamatelos & Associates
I have worked with Cindy Gleason on several cases and believe she is an exceptional CDFA.  In some cases I have had her develop budgets for my clients and help them gain an understanding of the money issues in their case. In this role she is extremely patient, compassionate and thorough. I have also had Cindy advise me on tax matters large and small, when I am negotiating settlements for my clients. She has been involved as a member of our collaborative team in some cases.  In those matters she has helped the two collaborative lawyers develop a plan to move the family forward financially. Cindy is an innovator and she has an upbeat personality. She is creative and welcomes new ideas. She is one of the few financial professionals I am aware of who is also a trained mediator and who is trained in collaborative law.  I thoroughly enjoy working with Cindy.

Cindy Gleason is my go-to expert in divorce financial matters.  She is professional, knowledgeable, and helpful.  Her positive attitude makes working with her a pleasure.  Cindy possesses comprehensive knowledge of financial matters, and she continues to add to her skill set.  She has testified for me in three trials where she was poised, articulate, and likable.  At the last trial, opposing counsel praised her testimony and requested her contact information so he could use her services in the future.  It doesn’t get any better than that!

In the spring of 2007, as my marriage was disintegrating, I happened to read an article in the newspaper about Cindy.  I had no idea that such a service even existed.  I cold-called Cindy a few months later and we probably talked on the phone for an hour.  I instantly knew that she would be my advocate, my advisor, my mentor, and my friend. I didn’t have any close friends that had gotten divorced, so to find someone that understood what I was going through was incredibly helpful.  We laughed and we cried (well I did….) before we ever met each other.

Throughout the next 18 months, as I contemplated what to do, Cindy was always available to offer me counseling, financial advice and a shoulder to cry on.  As my divorce became an upcoming reality, she armed me with the financial advice to put me in the best possible position to receive a fair outcome.  My divorce was not the typical situation, i.e. two incomes/one house, but instead had many components that many divorces don’t contain.  She understood them all – no situation was too complicated for her.

My divorce was settled a few years ago and Cindy has remained as my financial advisor, my cheerleader, and my friend.  I totally trust her financial advice. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.  She will offer financial expertise and emotional support; she understands what you are going through and she will help you find your new future.
