by Hilgers Graben PLLC

Hilgers Graben PLLC is excited to announce the addition of Cynthia Schmidt to its Dallas-based litigation team.

Formerly an associate with Gibson, Dunn, & Crutcher LLP, Cynthia graduated from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law magna cum laude and is admitted to the bars of Texas, Northern District of Texas, and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

“I am thrilled to be joining such a dynamic team at Hilgers Graben," Cynthia said. "The chance to provide clients exceptional quality work, without charging them big law rates, was very attractive to me. And when I observed the positive culture at the firm that Mike, Andrew, and the rest of the partnership have created in such a short time, the decision was virtually a no-brainer.”

“We’re incredibly excited to have Cynthia on our team,” said firm founder Mike Hilgers. “Her extensive experience representing working in high-stakes complex litigation will be a real asset for our clients. We are thrilled to have her class action litigation expertise and federal court experience on our team.”

Cynthia received her undergraduate degree in theology and political science from the University of Notre Dame, where she was elected president of her class and vice president of the university’s student body.
