ST. LOUIS /PRNewswire/ — Cynthia Garnholz has been recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Pinnacle Professional Member in the legal field.
Garnholz’ professional title is attorney, collaborative practitioner and mediator at The Center for Family Law, which specializes in legal services. She brings over 30 years of field experience, as well as expertise in family law and estate and probate law, to her role.
“The experienced attorneys of The Center for Family Law are focused on your future when representing you,” the firm’s website states. “Our firm provides creative solutions and options to help clients navigate the uncertain terrain of remaking their families while helping them protect their families and children. Our attorneys provide recommendations on whether mediation, collaborative practice or litigation is appropriate for your family.”
“As an experienced trial lawyer, I understand that a trial may be the best choice to resolve your legal issues and I am ready to aggressively represent your interests in court and at trial,” Garnholz said. “I am a strong believer in what lawyers call ‘alternative dispute resolution’ methods. If I think your case could be resolved collaboratively or through mediation, rather than litigation, we will talk about and evaluate those processes.”
Gamholz earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Fontbonne University in 1976. She then went on to complete her Juris Doctor from the Washington University School of Law in 1980.

“I encourage my clients to ask questions about anything that they don’t understand or which causes them concern,” Garnholz said of her work philosophy. “My staff and I strive to be available to hear your questions and then promptly deliver answers.”
In addition to her work in the field, Garnholz is active in a number of community organizations, and has served as an Alderman for the City of Clayton from 2007-2017. She also served a year in a clerkship with the St. Louis County Circuit Court, followed by a position as an Assistant County Counselor for St. Louis County.
As a testament to her outstanding accomplishments in the field, Garnholz has received an AV-Preeminent™ rating with Martindale-Hubbell®, and has been named one of the National Advocates’ Top 100 Lawyers.
