About me

Cynthia Figueroa, has practiced business law in Dallas for almost 20 years. Much of Ms. Figueroa’s law practice has focused on government representation and includes serving the City of Dallas as bond counsel, representing transportation clients, medical service clients, schools and other large and small government and corporate clients in north Texas, and elsewhere in the state. Ms. Figueroa recently worked on the Dallas Convention Center Hotel bond financing for the City of Dallas (closing of this complex deal took place in August 2009) and is currently engaged in projects at Love Field in Dallas. She has experience negotiating very large government contracts, which have resulted in multimillion dollar savings for her clients. Her practice includes a focus in the areas of transportation matters, general government and business representation and litigation, labor and employment, director and officer liability, large commercial lease negotiation, bond work, open records/open meetings law, and contract disputes. She has also handled cases in areas as diverse as accounting malpractice, director and officer liability, savings and loan litigation, aviation litigation, regulatory issues and contractual disputes. Her experience also includes drafting legislation. Ms. Figueroa has served both sophisticated private sector and large governmental clients. Clients have depended upon her legal expertise in times of crises and for maintaining, growing and developing growth strategies for their businesses or on behalf of public entities. Upon the reopening of her law offices in 2007, after leaving public office, her firm received the Luna Award in June of 2007 from the Hispanic Contractors Association of DFW as the “Rising Firm of the Year”.
