Cynthia A.B. Vivekanandam has always had a long-standing passion for fighting for immigrant rights. As a college student, she learned first-hand the struggles many people endure in migrating to the United States after traveling to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico to study Spanish and volunteer. She also volunteered for a local immigrant rights group in Ypsilanti, Michigan, helping to provide presentations to educate the community on their rights.


Her advocacy work ultimately led her to DePaul University College of Law, where she studied immigration and public interest law as a Public Interest Honors Scholar. As a law student, she continued her advocacy efforts through internships serving asylees, refugees, unaccompanied minor children, immigrant survivors of domestic violence, and human trafficking survivors in many of the country’s leading immigration legal service providers in Chicago, IL and on the United States-Mexican border.


Cynthia focuses her practice on employment, family and humanitarian immigration matters. She understands both the professional and personal side of pursuing an immigration application, as her husband is a citizen of India who immigrated to the United States. She is proud to have family on both sides of the globe. When Cynthia is not helping clients navigate immigration, she can be found with her husband, enjoying their many animals. An avid animal-rescuer and lifelong equestrian, Cynthia and her husband have three rescue dogs and a rescue horse.


Cynthia graduated cum laude from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs and obtained her Juris Doctor from DePaul University College of Law. She is a member of the Ohio Bar, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and is admitted to practice with the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Cynthia is fluent in Spanish and has started to study her husband’s native language of Tamil.

Green Card Experience
Cynthia was extremely communicative and clear regarding steps and procedures for our green card application. She was friendly, helpful, and extremely kind throughout the process. We felt totally prepared regarding our application and interview. We went through the interview incredibly quickly and got my husband's green card incredibly quickly!

Professional and knowledgeable
Cynthia was my lawyer through my marriage dissolution. Throughout the entire process, she was professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. She helped me navigate the paperwork and process seamlessly and kept me informed of the schedule as the court date approached. During the hearing, she was kind and experienced in the interactions with myself, (ex) husband, and judge. I would highly recommend Cynthia for other legal needs and I will call her again without hesitation should the need arise.

Outstanding, professional and Relatable
Cynthia was completely amazing! From start to finish , she explained everything me and my husband needed to do for me to get my residency. She is super relatable and kind . She takes her work serious as a lawyer ! One of the things that I worried about the most was having a good connection with my lawyer and being able to reach out to her when I had a question. Cynthia explained everything step by step I’m so glad I picked her as my lawyer. I would recommend her to my family and close friends !

Knowledgeable and reliable
“Cynthia Ann Bedrosian was a guiding light to my family at a time when we did not know where to turn to. Her calm and empathetic conduct throughout the asylum process offered emotional relief to myself and my family. It’s uncommon to find a lawyer who will not only guide but goes the extra mile to find that extra evidence to corroborate your claim. I may not be a profitable client, but I am forever grateful for the services she provided me, and so will highly recommend her without any reservation.”
