December Staff Spotlight

Each month we will be highlighting a member of the Murray, Rauzi & Kidwell and Owl Creek Title Agency staff. We hope you enjoy getting to know our attorneys and staff members a little better through the questions and answers. 

Name: Cynthia Cunningham  

Title: Attorney and Title Agent

Q: What is your favorite part about your job at Murray, Rauzi & Kidwell /Owl Creek Title Agency? 

A: Working directly with clients to achieve their goals. Whether it is helping someone develop an estate plan they feel comfortable with,  helping someone close on the perfect piece of real estate for their family or their business, or helping an entrepreneur set up their new business entity, helping others achieve their goals is the part that I enjoy most about my job.

Q: What do you enjoy most about the practice of law?

A: The use of defined terms and proper punctuation. Proper drafting of documents requires attention to using the correct terms, definitions, and punctuation. The meaning of a sentence can hinge on the placement of a word in a sentence, whether a term has been properly defined in the document, or whether a comma was placed before or after a phrase.

Q: What do you like to do outside of work?

A: Spend time with my family, volunteer in my community, and support our local businesses and community events. Knox County is a great community to live, work and play.

Q: What would people never guess that you do in your role?

A: Write questions for the Staff Spotlight.

Q: What is the last joke you recall?

A: This is one of my favorite jokes to tell, but is not one that always garners the most laughs:
My given name is Cynthia, but many call me Cindy. I sign documents as Cynthia, my business card and license say Cynthia, so people often ask, “Do you prefer to go by Cindy or Cynthia?” My usual response is, “Call me what you want, just don’t call me late for dinner.”
Maybe it is my delivery of the punchline, but many don’t find the joke nearly as funny as I do.
