About Helfrich Law Offices


Cynthia P. ("Cyndi") Helfrich Attorney at Law

I began the practice of law in Brownsburg, Hendricks County, in 1998.   I have been a sole practitioner, a public defender, and a partner in two small law firms.  In May 2019, I was pleased to open a new office in downtown Greenfield, which has become my primary location.  With a second location of Helfrich Law Offices remaining in Hendricks County, in Plainfield, I am now able to serve clients across central Indiana.

In my practice, I am intentionally a “generalist”, with extensive experience in criminal defense, family law, guardianships, adoptions, real estate transactions, small business law, banking law, estates and trusts, civil and probate litigation and estate administration.  I am also trained as a family law mediator and have served extensively as a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem, speaking for those who are not able to speak for themselves.

I have experience litigating cases in trial courts throughout Indiana, before both Judges and Juries.  I also have extensive experience in appellate law, having argued cases before both the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court.

Personal Notes:

  • I am an aunt to 8 wonderful nieces and nephews.
  • Law is in by blood. My grandfather was an attorney. My mom and two of my aunts have spent their careers as paralegals, legal secretaries, and consultants in legal technology. My great grandmother was a criminal court bailiff. I grew up around the law and developed a love for it very early in life.
  • I'm a bit of a nerd. I love to read, and my interests are pretty varied.
