5/5

“I have to applaud my attorney. She has been on time, called back numerous times, handled things same day into the night, [and] anticipates things before I can think of it. I’m very pleased with the care I’m receiving from my attorney. I’m pleased with her insight, how she speaks to me, and pleased with the service I am receiving. I don’t feel like she’s talking down to me.”

5/5

“Jaimie always returns any calls, even if she is delayed with other matters for much of the day. Jaimie and I have spoken many times, and at some length about my goals and how to achieve them. Jaimie is a spectacular attorney, a true credit to the profession. There has never been a time, not even once during the past 8 months of the divorce, where I felt she let me down or didn’t do all that was in her power to advocate for me. Cordell & Cordell really has done everything that they talk about in the commercials that I used to hear on the radio. I couldn’t be happier that I chose this firm, because I have always felt that I’ve been in good hands and that I’ll get the best advice.  … Recently I heard a Cordell and Cordell commercial where the slogan “A Partner Men Can Count On” was used. I thought to myself, that really perfectly describes what Jaimie has done in her role as my attorney. She has been there from the start to listen to my questions and concerns, to offer her counsel, advice, and to help me steer a course through this divorce and on to a new life. I trust Jaimie, and she has made a very difficult divorce easier with the support and guidance she has provided. … They are really lucky to have her on staff. …”

“Jaimie was awesome! I can’t say enough good things about her professionalism, courtesy, and the way she handled questions. I never felt like I was unintelligent at any point in dealing with her. She anticipated many of my questions. I’ve already recommended Jaimie.”
