During her many years involved in divorce and family law litigation, Cynthia developed a strong opinion that litigation is only necessary in a few, rare cases, and that resolution of divorce issues can and should be handled outside of the courtroom in the vast majority of situations. As a result, Cynthia obtained training in mediation and collaborative law in order to shift her practice in the direction of settlement rather than litigation practices. With a true goal of maintaining family relationships for the sake of children, Cynthia also obtained training and started representing children in custody litigation.
Cynthia established Batchelder Law & Mediation in January of 2018, with a passion for helping people resolve their family law issues out of court, dedicated solely to mediation, collaborative law, attorney negotiated settlement agreements, and continuing to represent children in contested custody disputes. Cynthia loves having the opportunity to assist clients and work with professionals who are also dedicated to working on out-of-court settlements that will serve clients and their children over time financially, emotionally, and otherwise.
