I am a trial lawyer. I feel most comfortable in a courtroom advocating for my clients and arguing their cases. Years ago, one of my clients called me the "velvet hammer" and it's a nickname that has stuck. Sometimes when people say they want an "aggressive" lawyer, what I believe they really want is an "effective" lawyer. I am an effective lawyer. I do not file papers simply to harass the other side, yell, curse out or otherwise demean opposing parties or counsel, nor do I engage in bullying antics that some people associate as being "aggressive." All that type of behavior does is increase litigation costs. I discourage “scorched‑earth” tactics and instead encourage mediation and collaborative solutions whenever possible. 


While I am a huge advocate of the mediation process, sometimes cases must be tried because the other side is unreasonable and trying the case is the only way to try to obtain a fair and equitable outcome. With that said, my reputation for thorough preparation and effective advocacy enables my clients a range of options including disposition of the case in their favor through motion practice, settlement, trial, or even reaching a favorable settlement during trial.  I approach all of my cases with a passion for the law, intellectual rigor, creative thinking, and a commitment to excellence.


I began my legal career defending insurance companies, product manufacturers, and pharmaceutical companies in catastrophic personal injury and products liability cases. My work experience prior to starting my own law firm over a decade ago was invaluable. I believe my background and experience in complex civil litigation gives me an advantage when representing people whether it be a personal injury or family law matter. 


When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, playing with our dogs, and running.  My favorite charities are Jamie's Animal Rescue - adopt and save a life - and Sole Loved - a local shoe charity that provides shoes to children and adults in need.  


Client Testimonials:


"I hired Ms. Rendon to help me with a complicated international divorce, with a child. Ms. Rendon, not only was brilliant, capable and tough, but extremely personable and caring as well. She truly cared for the situation I and my son were in, and ensured that a justice was served and errors made by the court were corrected. I highly recommend Ms. Rendon to anybody going through a difficult international or domestic divorce. She will handle it with professionalism, knowledge, integrity and most of all caring for those who need her expertise. Thank you, again, dear Ms. Rendon!"


"Thanks to Cindy this process was more simple than I had imagined. She was thorough, patient & able to explain all details in terms I could grasp & understand. She kept on top of where the proceedings where from start to finish & kept me updated at every turn. Absolutely fantastic & I would refer her to anyone going through a similar situation."


"I hired Cynthia Rendon after she was referred to me for a business/insurance situation. She brought her skill, compassion, intelligence and integrity to a truly frustrating long standing situation which overwhelmed me by its sheer unfairness. Cynthia counseled me through the rough spots, listened when my emotions caused me to react, cautioned me when I needed it, and supported me in eventually securing a positive outcome. I would recommend her to anyone who needs someone who is intelligent about the legal facts and for those who absolutely need someone to walk them to the end goal. My admiration and thank you's many times over."

"Cynthia did an outstanding job with my son's divorce/custody case. She was informed and in charge throughout. An out-of-state lawyer representing our side was also involved but was the complete opposite: thank goodness for Cindy! I have no hesitancy recommending her."


"Cynthia handled an Adverse Possession Case for our family.  As some cases, it was extremely lengthy not easy for the client but she NEVER gave up or gave in, she always fought for us. As you pick an attorney you are looking for someone whom will fight for you & you can trust in making decisions that would be in your favor... she is totally trustworthy! I would recommend Cynthia is ANYONE whom needs an attorney that is extremely knowledgeable, intelligent, and fights for her client.  She is trustworthy in handling every move of your case.  You can trust that she is ALWAYS in YOUR corner! Look no further, she is the one!"


"Cynthia is an intelligent, capable, dedicated, and personable attorney. She is always responsive, with sensible reactions in all the circumstances I've thrown at her. I feel confident in saying that she is capable of handling any situation with thoughtfulness and maturity.  I would recommend Cynthia to anyone needing a family law attorney."


"Just wanna give a big shout out to my attorney Cindy Rendon for being everything and more for me this last year.  I was referred to Cindy by another neighbor and have been astonished at her professionalism, intelligence and HUGE heart.  Yes, an attorney can have a heart.  Thank you Cindy for everything!"
