CINDY S. GLEASON, CFP® CHFC CDFA MEDIATOR
Cindy is a Certified Financial Planner Practitioner and Chartered Financial Consultant with over 23 years of experience in comprehensive financial planning and analysis.
Cindy is also one of just a handful of Certified Divorce Financial Analysts™ in the state of Iowa, but also one of over 3,000 in the U.S. and Canada providing advanced financial analysis for individuals contemplating or enduring the divorce process. She is also a trained Mediator and works with clients wishing to minimize litigation and resolve their financial issues more peacefully. Most recently she has begun training mediators about the financial pitfalls that may be present in some mediation cases.
She is also trained in the collaborative law process and has served as the financial neutral in several cases. This process provides yet another way to resolve the issues of divorce more peacefully – many times much less expensively.
And, of course, she has the experience and education to provide expert testimony in cases that cannot be resolved through either collaborative or mediation processes. Although one of her greatest gifts is to occasionally find that gold nugget that will help be the path to settlement prior to trial.
