Client Testimonials

5/5

“She has done very good. We have had some items come up where she’s helped me deal with them. It has been nothing but the best experience on my end so far. I originally was not going to use an attorney, but my wife then hired one and I heard the ads on the radio and thought that Cordell & Cordell sounded great. Granted, I had to wait a bit until your Virginia office got started, but [I am] very glad that I did and it’s been worth the wait. It’s been a difficult time in my life, and Rebecca and the team have made it easier. …”

“I am very, very pleased with Rachel and [her Practice Manager]. I admire their professionalism and their personableness. They are great people to work with and are knowledgeable and effective. This was a troubling time and they really helped me through. I hope I never have to go through this again, but I hope to have them on my side if I do. I’m glad I made the choice I did, and I’ve already referred the firm.”

“I think Cassandra did a great job with keeping me updated every step of the way. I’m sure to her my case was very basic, but to me my case was unique and I felt she treated it that way, which was great. She kept me completely updated, and I never had to wait for her responses or wonder what was happening next. She is great with communication!”
