About me

Family law has been the focus of my law practice since I began my work as an attorney.  Choosing an attorney to represent you for your divorce, custody and support, modification or enforcement matter is one of the most important decisions that you will make during those processes.  Your attorney should be someone you trust, who listens to and works with you to set goals and attain them.

            I tailor my representation and guidance to each client and their specific needs.  No two clients' goals and situations are the same.  Hearing and listening to my clients are both important.  I care about my clients and their futures beyond their current situation; my clients and I form a partnership during their legal process to help them work through the issues they face. 


            At the time that I began practicing law, I chose family law because I enjoy working directly with people and helping them through difficult times.  I strive to provide my clients with personal, one-on-one attention to their legal needs.  I make myself available to my clients as they need so we can address the events that occur  during the changing times in their lives.   When selecting a family law attorney, it is vital to choose someone with focused experience and skill who can handle the complicated legal issues involved.  It is also important to select an attorney with whom you are comfortable sharing the personal details of your history and who gives your legal matter the attention it deserves.  I have extensive experience litigating complex custody, support and property matters.  I also have experience representing clients in cooperative and "Collaborative" cases where the parties work together to reach a settlement that works for them and their family.  In addition to represent clients individually, in my practice I also serve as a mediator to parties wanting to resolve their divorces, custody and support cases and modifications.  In mediation, I work with both parties to settle their cases.

  • Jack Charles Hauser Jr.

    I have had many cases with Cynthia and I find her to be diligent, hard working, ethical, and compassionate in her role as opposing counsel and as a guardian ad litem. She has almost 20 years of experience and she is well respected in the St. Louis and St. Charles legal communities and before their judges. She is a zealous advocate when needed and a resourceful problem solver if a case can be settled in lieu of trial. She is part of a prestigious family law and volunteers in the legal community actively. I would highly recommend you consider Cynthia as your attorney.
