Taylor Myers told The Wall Street Journal that when he first heard a radio advertisement emphasizing how Cordell & Cordell puts men first he knew the firm was a right fit for him.
“That’s how I felt through the whole process,” Mr. Myers told the newspaper. “(Cordell & Cordell CEO Joseph Cordell) has hit on something right.”
Myers, along with fellow Cordell client Mark Faulkner, praised Cordell & Cordell’s unique approach to representing men in divorce in the article, “Lawyers Carve Out ‘Divorce For Men’ Niche.” The firm’s modus operandi has fueled expansion to 140 attorneys working out of more than 60 offices spread across 24 states, as of July 2012.
Mr. Faulkner said the compelling need for men to have an advocate for their interests was reinforced by his marriage counselor who told him, “Make sure you get a good attorney because the system is prejudiced” against men.
Even with evolving trends of gender-neutral laws, Mr. Cordell explained to The Wall Street Journal that men still encounter discrimination from judges who are reluctant to view fathers as equally capable parents or deserving of spousal support.
