About Cynthia Balistocky


The Fiduciary you need.
The trust, experience, and work ethic you want.

Cynthia Balistocky is a California Licensed Professional Fiduciary, a National Certified Guardian with the Center for Guardianship Certification, Paralegal, and Notary Public, earning the title of Licensed Professional Fiduciary in November 2014. Most recently, Cynthia has served as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jerry L. Carmody, APLC since 2009.

Cynthia holds certificates in Professional Fiduciary Management for Trustees and Conservators and is also a Licensed Notary Public. She received her Associate of Liberal Arts degree from Mesa College with a concentration in Social Work. She earned her Paralegal Certificate with honors from the University of San Diego.

Living her formative years in Chicago, Cynthia takes pride in being grounded in Midwestern values and a strong work ethic—which have helped her develop solid, trusting relationships with her clients and the organizations she works with in San Diego. She’ll half-jokingly admit how difficult it is for her to boast about how much of an advantage her Midwestern values give her out here on the West Coast, because individual integrity and humility are such a big part of those Midwestern values.

But she is proud to talk about what she does to help others (without expecting anything in return, which is another in the set of strong Midwestern values). Cynthia volunteers for Voices for Children and acts as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), currently advocating for three children in the foster care system. Nothing is more important to Cynthia than being able to help create better and brighter futures for children who have only experienced abuse, neglect, or abandonment in their lives. Cynthia becomes an important transformative figure for them, making a difference that will last their lifetimes.

When she has spare time for herself, Cynthia enjoys cooking, baking, bird watching, traveling, and spending time with her husband, Paul, and their dog, Walden. You can learn even more about Cynthia’s career and volunteer work on her LinkedIn page.
