Lauraleen A. Boatright

Associate Attorney

Cordell & Cordell Overland Park Divorce Attorney Lauraleen BoatrightWhile working as a paralegal, Overland Park divorce attorney Lauraleen A. Boatright gained valuable experience second-chairing depositions, conferences, hearings and trials.

In doing so, she developed a passion for domestic litigation and helping people navigate out of the murky minefield-laden waters of divorce.

She has experience guiding clients through high-conflict division of property, child custody disputes, child support modification disputes, maintenance disputes, and more.

Ms. Boatright possesses patience, initiative, a clear understanding of the law surrounding family law issues of the day, and the drive to help her clients obtain their goals.

“I would say that particularly in the area of family law, the nature of the process depends upon the types of people involved in the process,” Ms. Boatright said. “You need an attorney that will benefit you in that process; one who perceives issues and adapts strategies as required; who can change course in the storm if need be; and who makes all efforts to obtain a satisfactory outcome for their client. I am that attorney.”
