Cynthia A.B. Vivekanandam, Esq.
Associate Attorney

Cynthia A.B. Vivekanandam has always had a long-standing passion for fighting for immigrant rights. As a college student, she learned first-hand the struggles many people endure in migrating to the United States after traveling to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico to study Spanish and volunteer. She also volunteered for a local immigrant rights group in Ypsilanti, Michigan, helping to provide presentations to educate the community on their rights.

Her advocacy work ultimately led her to DePaul University College of Law, where she studied immigration and public interest law as a Public Interest Honors Scholar. As a law student, she continued her advocacy efforts through internships serving asylees, refugees, unaccompanied minor children, immigrant survivors of domestic violence, and human trafficking survivors in many of the country’s leading immigration legal service providers in Chicago, IL and on the United States-Mexican border. Cynthia believes in access to justice and actively volunteers her time with immigrant survivors of domestic violence.

Cynthia understands both the professional and personal side of pursuing an immigration application, as her husband is a citizen of India who immigrated to the United States. She is proud to have family on both sides of the globe. When Cynthia is not helping clients navigate immigration, she can be found with her husband, enjoying their many animals. An avid animal-rescuer and lifelong equestrian, Cynthia and her husband have three rescue dogs and a rescue horse.

Cynthia graduated cum laude from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs and obtained her Juris Doctor from DePaul University College of Law. She is a member of the Ohio Bar, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and is admitted to practice with the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. She currently serves the Ohio Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association as the Co-Liaison of the Unlawful Practice of Law Committee. Cynthia is fluent in Spanish and has started to study her husband’s native language of Tamil.
