National Client Testimonials


“Melinda is amazing, very attentive and knowledgeable, I’ve referred others to Melinda because we trust her so very much. She has already closed one divorce case for one person I referred, and he too was incredibly happy with her and thanked me for referring her. Everything Melinda is doing is fantastic. She is patient, informative, … and doesn’t treat us like another case, but like a family who is dramatically impacted. I’ve referred others to her, [and] they too are so satisfied and thrilled with her abilities! …”


“Due to circumstances in my case and your firm’s stance in this sort of litigation to make sure fathers get justice, I chose Cordell & Cordell. One of the things I was most impressed with was their choice of attorney for me. Cassandra is very experienced with practicing in my county. I know that she is the right fit for me. She appreciates the position I’m in and has done what I’ve asked. Cassandra has been really good. I’m very pleased.”



“She’s wonderful. … She did everything well.  She was upfront and honest with me about everything.  I kind of knew what I was getting myself into, because she told me everything ahead of time.  She dealt with my ex-wife and was obviously very polite.  She was nice to her and handled everything professionally.  She didn’t put her down, just helped her understand that she had no choice in the matter.  Sally really took care of things for me.”
