Cynthia M. Devers

About Cyndi Devers

Cynthia (“Cyndi”) Devers is an aviation and aviation safety enthusiast.  She trained in both fixed wing aircraft and rotorcraft, and has worked exclusively on aviation accident cases during her career.  Cyndi oversees complex aircraft accidents, such as the crash of a Hawker 800 Jet in Owatonna, Minnesota, helicopter loss of control incidents, ignition and fuel delivery system failures, autopilot failures, electrical failures, to name a few.  She has tackled complex legal issues such as subject matter jurisdiction of the federal courts, personal jurisdiction, and aviation victims’ rights under the General Aviation Revitalization Act.

Experience

Cyndi has been involved in every aspect of complex aviation products liability litigation, including aircraft accident investigation, attends wreckage inspections throughout the United States, participates in flight demonstrations, litigation, trial, and appeals in state and federal courts nationwide.  She is relentless in her pursuit for justice on behalf of her clients, which is proven by the successful outcomes.

In August 2019, Cyndi was an integral member of the trial team, sitting as second chair with Arthur Wolk, that obtained a $9,000,000 verdict after six weeks of trial due to the failure of the Lycoming engine’s single drive dual magneto on take-off in a Mooney M20 aircraft that fatally injured the pilot and passenger.  When the defendant, Continental Motors, Inc. filed its eighth appeal, Cyndi wrote the appellate brief, and argued before a panel of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, which upheld the verdict.

Cyndi was also part of the legal team that obtained an $11,000,000 verdict for an engine failure accident in a twin engine Cessna after a two-week trial in Philadelphia.
