Reviews

5/5

“Heather is amazing!  I am 100% confident in Heather!. She came into my protective order hearing and she blew it out of the water! I had no idea what to expect and came in with little faith. I was in complete shock at how Heather handled things. If it wasn’t for her, I would have no time with my daughter. I owe her everything. Heather is a shark and went after what I wanted without me having to spell it out. I have nothing but faith in Heather. I couldn’t be more pleased with Cordell & Cordell and Heather.”

5/5

“Heather has been very responsive and always takes her time to address all of my questions. That level of attention has been great, especially considering the complexity of my case!”
