About Cordell & Cordell

Cordell & Cordell was co-founded in 1990 by Joseph E. Cordell and his wife, Yvonne, as a general practice firm focusing on men’s divorce and family law. Mr. Cordell noticed about 98% of the firm’s clients were men, and the need for a level playing field in divorce courts sparked the idea of Cordell & Cordell. The firm has since grown to more than 100 offices across the United States, and it opened its first office in the United Kingdom in May 2015. With this experience and the figures to back it up, we have become the largest family law firm serving men in the world.

With the Cordell and Cordell Affiliate Network Program, your firm can now be a part of this legacy. Through this opportunity, you will receive the benefit of referrals from our firm and gain access to the resources and marketing capabilities of the Cordell & Cordell brand and grow the family division of your firm.

Quality Control Process

When you join Cordell & Cordell’s Affiliate Program, your law firm’s attorneys get access to the Cordell Quality Control Process.

In order to ensure quality service, Cordell & Cordell reviews each employee and legal process continuously and thoroughly to nip any potential problem in the bud.

Integrity and efficiency are a paramount concern at Cordell & Cordell. To ensure you understand the path we take to success with every team member, we’d like to walk you through the Cordell & Cordell reviews process and all that goes into our customer service.

  • Cordell & Cordell Review Process – We hold Cordell & Cordell attorneys to the utmost standards. Every attorney with the firm must undergo a rigorous review process twice annually. These reviews are administered by a Partner and comes complete with its own dashboard of performance metrics, records of total satisfied clients, and a calculated ratio of satisfied clients.
  • Cordell & Cordell Reviews: Partners for Performance – Partners establish standards for performance that must be met or exceeded by attorneys. Through highly involved Partners, we bring out the best of our attorneys and, in turn, the Cordell & Cordell name. Their presence underscores the need to perform well under review. And, if standards aren’t met, the Partners know about it immediately. This is the catalyst to our efficiency.
  • Cordell & Cordell Attorney Reviews – Attorneys with the firm undergo periodic review of their credentials, so the lawyers all maintain their state bar qualifications. Whenever there are continuing professional education credits to be earned, or community service requirements, or tests and exams to be passed, our attorneys are well-prepared. Thus, they continually earn the right to practice law in a state where Cordell & Cordell is located.
  • Cordell & Cordell’s Commitment to Practice Quality and Premium Client Service – Our firm also utilizes a Practice Quality Department to provide a constant stream of real-time performance analysis and feedback. The Practice Quality Department is headed by experienced litigation counsel and is comprised of two divisions – Practice Proficiency and Client Care.
    • The Practice Proficiency Division is responsible for oversight of the firm’s standards of litigation practices, ensuring that they are updated to keep the firm on the forefront of high-quality representation and utilizing various systems and procedures to ensure that every firm attorney adheres to those standards. 
    • The Client Care Division, our customer service center, is responsible for the Cordell & Cordell Ratings process. This process is in place to ensure if there is a Cordell & Cordell complaint that the issue is resolved, and we improve our process.

The results of these interviews are entered and considered as part of the total Cordell & Cordell Rating. When informed by real customer experience, customer service can be improved, and high-quality relationships maintained.

  • Cordell & Cordell Reviews for Continuous Improvement – Efforts to improve service and achieve business excellence rely on a step-by-step process known as “Continuous Improvement.” The steps to our Continuous Improvement include:
    • PLAN
    • ASSESS
  • Cordell & Cordell Office Reviews – Every office must undergo the Cordell & Cordell Performance Review. With offices throughout the country, this is vital to a united Cordell & Cordell front. The following are examined during our office reviews:
    • * Strict financial controls and accounting;
    • * Warm, friendly customer service;
    • * Spacious, private offices;
    • * Ample parking;
