Very low, if any, ethical standards. In it for the money only.

Cheryl Baswell-Guthrie should not be allowed to practice law. She is without question not fit to be a member of this or any other bar association. I have had multiple transactions with her and her conduct borders on criminal. She has no ethical boundaries.

I hired this attorney from Alabama, I reside out-of-that-state. I kept sending her money, and more money on a probate case. I was named in the will to receive equal as my siblings, so how did she lose the case? Unfortunately, I will never know, as I never received court documents from her and she would not return call and even so much as changed her email address. I would not recommend this attorney.

She is not true to her word and that is what makes a person.
