He has tried or argued jury and non-jury cases in federal and state courts in nine states and has briefed and argued appeals in most of the federal appellate circuits. In addition to court cases, Cynamon also acted as counsel in international arbitration matters.

In September 2007, he was named Litigator of the Year by the Washington Business Journal for his representation of four Kuwaiti detainees held without charge at the US Military Base in Guantanamo, Cuba, successfully convincing the US Supreme Court to reverse itself — something that had not occurred in more than 30 years.

In addition to his litigation practice, Cynamon has also maintained a pro bono practice throughout his career.
