“Ijeoma communicated well with me from the very start. I knew exactly what to expect and was prepared. … Ijeoma gave me useful information and without her assistance, I would not have won last Friday’s hearing. I would re-retain Ijeoma and Cordell & Cordell in the future if I needed to fight further for custody.”


“My case was pretty straightforward. I’d give it a 5 out of  5. She really stayed on top of it. She was very prompt. Even when there was a small delay, Ijeoma stayed on top of it and saw it through.”


“She’s really awesome, really nice and really is very helpful.  I’ve been bad at getting back to her, but she has done a great job with me. I am very pleased.”


“Ijeoma is very open and makes me feel relaxed. If I don’t understand something or don’t understand something in the paperwork she will break it down for me so it makes sense. She’s really easy to talk to, and I am appreciative of that.”


“Ijeoma did a great job for me. We just had a hearing and everything was great. I think she is completely professional. …”


“Ijeoma is very professional. She is confident. I find her to be very understanding, and I really have appreciated that … She is very down to earth …”


“Ijeoma is very quick. She is an outstanding attorney. She is super smart. Any time I didn’t understand something she would break it down for me so I could understand it, because I didn’t always understand the attorney lingo or law. She is very patient. She made me feel very comfortable with decisions we were making throughout the whole case. She really knows when to get aggressive but has a super calm demeanor and is always professional.”


“Everything with Ijeoma was really good. I got everything taken care of. I was never lost. She kept me updated and helped me out a lot. I live about 80 miles away and she made it to where I didn’t have to make many trips.”


“I think Ijeoma was very professional. She gave me a lot of help. If anything else was ever needed I would come back and see if I could request her again. … She was very intelligent and supportive.”


“I think everything is being done exceptionally well. Ijeoma is on top of it, and she is very informative. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the services I’ve been receiving.”


“Ijeoma did a great job of relating to me and hearing about my situation. She did a great job of standing up for me during meetings and mediation with opposing counsel when she needed to. It was great knowing that she was invested in my case as much as I was. I don’t think my case would have turned out any better with anyone else.”


“Ijeoma is phenomenal. She always answers my calls right away, usually within 15 minutes. She tells me exactly what I need to know, keeps me in  check, and keeps me from saying anything I shouldn’t. … You guys are lucky to  have her working for your firm. Ijeoma is worth every dollar I have spent. She even called me when she was out of the country on vacation! She is going to go far, and I could not be more happy that she is my lawyer. She is always spot on.”


“Even if she was busy with another case, someone always got back to me! … Ijeoma A. Ugoezi was very professional. I even had the judge tell me to listen to my attorney, because [she is] one of the best.”


“Ijeoma was very professional and helpful.  She was very effective, and it was a pleasure working with her.”
