About me

Review: "At a very hard time in my life Cynthia was not only extremely professional, she was truly caring and compassionate and did the most amazing job looking out for me and my best interests. I am thankful I had the guidance of such a wonderful person and experienced attorney."


I counsel people all the time, don’t spend your money on an expensive divorce; rather, save it for your children’s college fund or for your own next chapter.  I have been telling that to clients that for over 25 years.


My goal is to help you go through the divorce process as effortlessly, painlessly and cost effectively as possible.
