Cynthia A. Braun
Experienced Personal Injury Attorney
Cynthia has practiced in the areas of personal injury and medical negligence for 30 years, joining Bailey Law Firm recently after relocating from New Mexico to Arizona. After graduating from The George Washington University School of Law in Washington, D.C., Cynthia’s first job as an attorney was with an insurance defense firm that represented insurance companies against claims brought by injured people.

- Catastrophic Injury Claims
After a few years, she realized she wanted to help the injured claimants – rather than save money for bloated insurance companies — and that’s when she switched sides. Since then, Cynthia has helped hundreds if not thousands of clients achieve fair outcomes and recover compensation to get their lives back on track after tragic events caused by the wrongful acts by third parties. Cynthia has extensive trial experience – both jury and bench trials – and was coincidentally the lead counsel with Bailey Law Firm on the first civil jury trial in Pima County since the COVID-19 Pandemic. While trials can be “fun” (for some lawyers anyway), Cynthia is an advocate of ADR (alternative dispute resolution) as a cheaper and faster means to resolve claims, given the ever-increasing costs and delays in taking a case all the way to trial.
Over the years, Cynthia has learned how to learn from and utilize medical experts and treating providers to help patients with their recovery and to help maximize that recovery. She likes to say that she has “just enough medical knowledge to be dangerous,” but her background makes her an ideal attorney to prosecute cases involving complex 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 entities including the Committee on Character and Fitness and the Board of Legal Specialization. In addition to her participation with those groups, Cynthia also served as an attorney mentor with the AZ Bar Mentor Connection Program.
Clients really appreciate that despite her 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 bad acts of others as well as to support the firm’s mission and goals.
As an animal lover, Cynthia enjoys spending time with her 2 dogs and 2 cats and (as she no longer owns a horse), regularly donates to horse rescue nonprofits including The Horse Shelter (New Mexico) and After the Home Stretch (racehorse rescue) and Desert Star Horse Rescue in Arizona.
