About me

Cynthia Conlin is a Florida attorney who focuses on general civil litigation, including consumer law, employment law, contract disputes, and more, in both federal and state courts. She has worked on a wide array of cases on both the plaintiffs' and defendants' sides, from simpler matters to complex class actions.

Attorney Conlin is an accomplished writer, editor, and researcher.  Prior to entering law school, she honed her skills in the field of journalism by obtaining a bachelor's degree in journalism at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, and by writing for such publications as the Orlando Sentinel and the Orlando Weekly.


Attorney Conlin is a 2007 graduate of Florida A&M University College of Law, Orlando, Florida, where she served as the Law Review submissions chair and Student Bar Association class representative.  In 2007, she won first prize in an ASCAP-sponsored contest for her legal paper, “The Online Copyright Liability Limitation Act and Copyright Protection in the New YouTube World.”


After law school, Attorney Conlin practiced civil litigation for a small-to-mid-size firm in Orlando, where she worked on a wide variety of cases in federal and state courts, including landlord-tenant matters, employment law, commercial law,  and consumer protection cases, and complex class actions.  In August 2010, committed to serving clients on a more personal and direct level, Attorney Conlin opened up her own practice.


When she is not practicing law, Attorney Conlin enjoys film, cycling, new technology, travel, and spending time with friends.  As she is married to an Irishman, she especially enjoys Irish culture and traveling to Ireland.
