Cynthia A. Braun
Experienced Personal Injury Attorney
Cynthia has practiced in the areas of personal injury and medical negligence for more than 30 years, joining Bailey Law Firm in 2021 after relocating from New Mexico to Arizona. Following her graduation from The George Washington University School of Law in Washington, D.C., Cynthia spent her first ten years as a lawyer working with a highly respected insurance defense firm, trying cases to juries all over New Mexico. She also gained experience in appellate work, becoming licensed and arguing cases in the Fifth and Tenth Circuit Courts of Appeals as well as the United States Supreme Court.

In 2003, Cynthia realized she wanted to help injured claimants, rather than representing insurance companies and that’s when she switched sides and began representing accident victims and malpractice claimants. Since then, Cynthia has helped thousands of clients achieve fair outcomes and recover compensation after tragic events caused by corporate and individual wrongdoers. As a plaintiff’s attorney, Cynthia has successfully resolved hundreds of cases for her clients, including six and seven figure settlements. In 2021, Cynthia was lead counsel with Bailey Law Firm on the first civil jury trial held in Pima County after the courts reopened following the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Over the years, Cynthia has gained experience in learning from and utilizing medical experts and treating providers to help patients with their recovery to maximize the value of their claims. She is often asked by providers and experts whether she has any formal medical training, but the truth is, Cynthia has had a keen affinity for medicine which helps her understand medical conditions and treatments better than the average lawyer. Cynthia subscribes to multiple medical journals and regularly reads peer review publications and abstracts, even reaching out to the authors for more information. She likes to say that she knows “just enough medicine to be dangerous,” but her background and interest in the medicine makes her an ideal attorney to prosecute cases involving complex health and medical issues.
Cynthia is licensed to practice in Arizona, New Mexico and on the Navajo Nation. She is an active member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), the Arizona Association for Justice (AzAJ) and the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association (NMTLA) where she served as a Board Member for several years. She carries a rating of AV with Martindale Hubbell which is the highest measure attainable in professional ethics and legal knowledge as rated by peers in the profession.
In 2022, Cynthia was appointed by the Arizona Supreme Court to two different State Bar committees including the Committee on Character and Fitness and the Board of Legal Specialization. In addition, Cynthia has volunteered as a mentor-attorney with the AZ Bar Mentor Connection and the Lawyer Next Door program.
Clients appreciate that despite her long experience and background, Cynthia remains kind, approachable and compassionate. She takes time to explain and guide clients through the sometimes bewildering process of litigation with a focus on their best interests above all else. Cynthia looks forward to using her skills and knowledge here at Bailey Law to help folks harmed by the wrongful acts of others as well as to support the firm’s mission and goals.
On a personal note, Cynthia enjoys traveling, spending time with family and going for walks with her Westie (Winston), who often can be found napping on her desk.
