Client Testimonials


“Dena will probably be running Cordell & Cordell one day. She is very intelligent and presents herself extremely well. She is all-around a terrific attorney.”


“Stephanie gave great advice in a particularly delicate situation and guided me the best way possible through the situation that I was dealing with. She did a real good job.”


“In reality I almost feel sorry for the opposing attorney (notice I said almost) because [my attorney] is so well prepared and she always ensures that I am ready for whatever is to come. [My attorney] is a straight shooter and I trust her. She doesn’t pull any punches which is why I feel like I’m in good hands. [My attorney] goes out of her way to explain every step so that I can make the best decision. She does not push me into agreeing with her. She’s a strong and careful advocate. She doesn’t back down from the opposing attorney and she will stand up to me when/if I’m about to make a boneheaded decision. … I feel great about my representation. … “
