CYNTHIA SHARP, ESQ.
Co-Founder and Director of Client Relations
The crowning achievement of Cynthia’s life came when she became sober from alcohol on Sept. 23, 2009. Since then, Cynthia has devoted every single day to protecting her mental and physical health. Through this journey, she achieved a level of contentment, happiness, and emotional stability that she previously did not know was possible.
Because she could no longer tolerate the stress of a law practice, after almost 30 years as a practicing attorney, Cynthia sold her interest to her junior partner at the end of 2009. Since then, she has dedicated more than 10 years helping attorneys build sustainable and stable law firms through The Sharper Lawyer. In 2019, Cynthia was recognized as Trainer of the Year by the ABA’s Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division.
After meeting kindred spirit Becky Howlett amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, Cynthia and Becky quickly discovered they had both cultivated mediation practices to reclaim and maintain their overall health and well-being. Given their dual interest in sharing mindfulness with others, they founded legalburnout.com with the mission of helping others in the legal field avoid the burnout, depression, anxiety, and addiction that they each struggled with for much too long.
Cynthia lives in Philadelphia with her husband, Mark and their dog, Rocky, and cat, Jackson. Cynthia practices yoga and meditation, enjoys the arts, and loves to bake.
