About me

Cindy has a diverse, national trial and arbitration practice.  Clients regularly seek Cindy’s counsel and expertise in complex commercial litigation matters, securities fraud claims, FINRA arbitrations, broker disciplinary actions, injunction cases, non-competition and trade secret cases, executive compensation cases, and general business litigation matters.

Her clients include multi-national corporations, large national corporations, closely held businesses, physicians, brokers (registered representatives), and individual entrepreneurs.  Cindy has successfully represented thousands of individual investors in securities claims involving a variety of investments, often including non-traditional securities investments such as limited partnerships, options trading, insurance products, collateralized mortgage obligations and derivatives.

In the area of employment disputes, Cindy represents individuals as well as major corporations in matters involving covenants not to compete; the protection of trade secrets and confidential information; fiduciary duty and the duty of loyalty; the drafting, interpretation and enforceability of professional employment agreements; and other matters relating to employee resignations and terminations or the movement of employees, partners or shareholders between firms.

Cindy has experience as lead counsel handling jury and non-jury trials, injunction proceedings, arbitrations, mediations, and appellate argument. She practices in both state and federal court and has substantial FINRA arbitration experience. She has successfully briefed and argued cases before the Texas Courts of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. She has acted as an arbitrator and as Special Counsel to corporate boards.

Cindy enjoys the diversity of her practice and prides herself on her ability to understand complex transactions and the technical issues often presented by new cases. She dedicates herself to learning the fundamental principles of each client’s business and incorporating that knowledge into successfully pursuing each client’s goals.

Cindy and her husband John have two sons, Samuel and Jonathan.
