Attorney Cartier has been practicing law for over 25 years.  She received her BA from Upsala College, JD from Widener Law School and LLM from UCONN Law School where she was the recipient of the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Insurance Finance.

Cindy began her career clerking in the 7th Judicial Circuit in Maryland and then went into private practice concentrating on family law and civil litigation. She founded Cartier & Bower, LLC in 2013 to provide quality legal services and holistic solutions for people facing challenges in their daily lives.

Attorney Cartier dedicates her practice to family and elder law with a focus on mediation and collaborative divorce.  She believes that the best resolutions are ones where the parties choose the less adversarial route and engage fully in the process.  This process not only saves time and money, but is a healthier way for folks to resolve their differences. With Cindy’s extensive legal background over the last quarter of a century in many areas of the law, she has a unique ability to see the conflict from both sides of the situation helping clients to do the same.  She believes passionately in the process and it shows in how she cares about the parties both during and beyond the process.  She does not give up helping the parties resolve the issues and her dedication to this work leads to positive resolutions for years to come.

Cindy truly believes that in the middle of every conflict, lies an opportunity for a meaningful resolution.
