“Ryan has given me everything I need and could want in attention to my case. Ryan provides me with tons of advice and options in my case. He has made it very easy on my part; no arguments with the opposing party. Cordell & Cordell do what they say they are going to do, and I’m very satisfied in my choice.”


“Ryan is an outstanding attorney. He is well-trained, a hard worker, patient and personable. My case was very challenging for any attorney, and he handled it extremely well. I was very frustrated at times by the unethical and unnecessary filings, stalling and lack of cooperation on the part of my ex-wife and her counsel, and Ryan navigated this problematic landscape with aplomb. He definitely lived up to your slogan, ‘A partner men can count on.’ I truly believe Cordell & Cordell is fortunate to have an asset such as Ryan Stanger.”


“I think that everyone there is very professional, courteous, and very helpful. I think that this is the best legal counsel and advice I have ever received.”


“Ryan is an exceptional lawyer and a great person. … It’s disheartening to think of all the fathers out there like me that are destroyed financially just to get what is fair and right, and above all, in the best interest of our children.”


“We had really good communication. Whenever I needed him he was easy to get ahold of.”


“Ryan is really organized, and if anything changes he lets you know pretty quickly. He also is good with follow-ups.”


“For the hand that Ryan has been dealt with both me and this system, I thank God that I have Ryan to help me. …  I truly appreciate everything he’s done for me.  I don’t know what I’d have done without him. “
