“Michelle is very attentive and hard-working. I can certainly see that in her. Michelle is also a bulldog. Michelle is doing a good job on my case.”


“I could not have picked a better attorney. I have never had a worry with Michelle. Michelle will get back to me in minutes sometimes. Michelle established a great rapport with me [and] took an interest in my son. It makes me want to get divorced again just so that I could interact with Michelle – she’s that awesome!”


“Michelle has my best interests at heart. Michelle is a fighter; she really fights for you, and I think that’s her best quality.”


“Michelle has been wonderful. She gives very good unbiased advice and is always willing to help me out when needed. I truly believe I made the right choice in picking this firm to handle my case.”


“Michelle has truly earned every compliment that I could think of. Two things stand out: 1) Michelle is highly professional, very straightforward, knowledgeable and honest. 2) When they said that someone would call me back the same day, I got a call anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I was blown away each and every time.”


“It has been a pleasure working with Michelle during this stressful time frame.  She is a definite asset to your organization. …”


“Michelle is hands down a terrific attorney. The whole package with her: nice, smart, hard-working. The other women in the office all have been very nice and helpful during this difficult time. … Nothing but support from you all and my thanks to everyone.”


“Michelle calls me back very quick whenever [I] need something. Michelle also files my legal documents quickly and always copies me on whatever she files or receives from the court or other side. I think that this keeps me updated on my case and limits the questions I might otherwise have for her. Communication with your firm can not be beat.”


“Michelle has been great at communication. She has talked me through things and given great advice.  Everything has been excellent, and I’m very pleased. I appreciate all her efforts and where we are today.”


“I’m very pleased with Michelle’s knowledge and professionalism. If I were to ever need another attorney in a matter such as mine, I would love to have her again. I’ve already recommended someone to Michelle! I really like Cordell & Cordell.”


“Any time I reach out, Michelle is all over the situation to get me answers almost immediately. She is absolutely phenomenal!”


“Michelle is a rock star! You need more people like her! She’s the best attorney. I was referred to you all, and it was a great referral.”
