Client Testimonials


“[My attorney] presented me with scenarios, outcomes, statutes and every legal anomaly in between. She explained all technical details in a manner which I understood, and verified I understood before proceeding into any other legal matters. [My attorney] kept me abreast of all timelines, due dates, etc. She prepared me with ample notice and took time to review all aspects of the legal cases pertaining to me. [My attorney] always returns calls promptly and replied to emails in a most expeditious manner. [My attorney] has always made time for me and my case. This is why I requested her again for my current custody case. Her proven track record, with me especially, is the main reason I retained [my attorney and Cordell & Cordell. [My attorney] is extremely knowledgeable, well-spoken and honest in presenting all legal scenarios to me. I very much value everything she has done for me in the past and continues to do, even to this day. I can think of no greater compliment than to say I have recommended her to others who have gone or are going through similar legal issues. I was so impressed with [my attorney] and Cordell & Cordell the first time around, I retained [my attorney] and the firm again.”
