Over 25 Years of Arbitration Experience

Cynthia has acted as an arbitrator in scores of cases covering a full range of employment claims, as well as a number of intellectual property, business contract and other disputes.  She has arbitrated the claims of individuals, multiple-parties and in class actions.

For over 25 years Cynthia has served as an arbitrator exclusively as a member of the American Arbitration Association’s (AAA) panels. Cynthia does not accept any non-AAA arbitrator appointments.  In fact, over 20 years ago Cynthia served on an advisory group that helped craft AAA’s first Employment Arbitration and Mediation Procedures. Cynthia also has taught and/or attended numerous AAA and other arbitration training sessions.

As an arbitrator, Cynthia takes conflicts of interest, and the appearance of conflicts, very seriously.  Generally, she will decline to serve as an arbitrator in cases where she has served as a mediator or arbitrator for any of the same parties or in any case with any of the same attorneys.
