Cynthia Fletcher believes that family legal matters extend far beyond the traditional divorce and custody arenas and has dedicated her legal career to building a practice that assists families through all life's phases.
Cynthia graduated from Baylor University in 1993 with a degree in psychology and went on to work in the mental health fields as a group home manager, counselor, parenting supervisor, and community mental health case manager for the next five years. During her time in the field, she became aware of the number of vulnerable populations who were often under-represented and began to turn her goals towards helping and advocating for them. In 1998, she enrolled at the University of Montana School of Law and graduated in 2001.
Upon taking the Colorado Bar Exam, she began her legal career as a Deputy District Attorney in the 10th Judicial District, where she served as the office's public liaison on domestic violence. She also prosecuted domestic violence and child abuse cases as a member of the Family Violence, and taught constitutional law, domestic violence and child abuse to new officers at the Pueblo Police Academy. In 2004, she relocated to the Denver metro area to open her own practice and never looked back. She has built a successful career and practice in the child welfare, adult protection, and family law areas. She has served as court appointed counsel, private counsel, and guardian ad litem in well over one thousand child welfare, adult protection, and family law cases and appeals across Colorado. Cynthia's extensive experience has led her to observe that, more often than not, when families fight, no one wins. Her approach to these contentious practice areas is to first try to bring everyone to the table to try and find some common ground and preserve the connection. However, there is a time and place to dig in and fight, and when those times arise she will aggressively advocate for clients within the full extent of the law. She is committed to families and helping them reach the results they need and desire.
In her personal time, Cynthia is a wife and mother to two growing and busy boys. She enjoys yoga, reading, gardening, hiking, camping, and the all the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. She can often be found at the barn and at local and regional hunter jumper horse shows, where she competes with and campaigns her two horses (Yogi and Archie) in the hunter and equitation divisions. A life-long horse woman, Cynthia is also available to represent clients in any equestrian law matters.
