The South Palm Beach County Chapter of FAWL was founded in 2003. Our mission is to advance the professional status of women lawyers, to promote the rights of women generally, to enhance the visibility of women within the legal profession and within their communities, and to create and maintain supportive networks among women in the legal and other professions.
Our group of dedicated women lawyers primarily practice law in the areas of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and Lake Worth, Florida.
Join us for monthly luncheons with special guest speakers, receptions, happy hour events and other special events held throughout the year.
Originally from Frankfort, Kentucky, Cynthia attended Palm Beach Community College on a scholarship and then graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2004, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Certificate in Women’s Studies. Cynthia has been employed in the legal field since 1997 and began working in Matrimonial and Family Law in early 2005. She realized her passion in family law and decided to pursue her law degree in 2009, at which time she began attending Nova Southeastern University in the Evening Division while maintaining full-time employment. While in law school, Cynthia was a member of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court team for two years in a row as a competitor.
During the second year, she was team Co-Coach, traveling to Vienna, Austria to compete against 281 international law schools. Through hard work and dedication, her team placed 52nd (the best placing Nova Southeastern has had since being involved in this Moot program). The team also received an Honorable Mention for Best Team Orals.
Cynthia graduated with her J.D. from Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center, in December 2012 and became a licensed attorney on April 16, 2013. In January 2014, Cynthia established her own family law practice to further her passion of assisting clients with family law matters. “I enjoy being a Family Law Attorney because I view it as an opportunity to help my client transition from one stage in their life to another happier stage. It’s all a matter of perspective.”
Cynthia has been a member of South Palm Beach County FAWL since 2011 as a law student and became a Board Member for the 2014-2015 year. Cynthia looks forward to serving on the Board for years to come.
