Client Testimonials


“I really appreciated Kara’s presence during this process. She was very direct in giving me all the options. When you’re going through something like this, your mind just runs and it was helpful having Kara there to provide the legal options and in a way I understood. It allowed me to make the best decisions possible. In my case, we were able to come to an agreement and not go through a lengthy court battle which probably saved me a lot of money. She was very responsive and even given the circumstances, it was a great experience.”



“Overall [my attorney’s] performance has been outstanding! He keeps me very updated. Everything he says he is going to do, he follows through. I couldn’t be happier with the choice I’ve made in obtaining Cordell & Cordell. [My attorney] being my lawyer is the best thing that could have happened to me.”
