About Athena Mills, Senior Litigation Attorney

Sacramento divorce attorney Athena Mills was initially drawn towards family law because of the complex emotional and psychological issues involved. However, her desire to help families, especially children, overcome a difficult and highly emotional time in their lives is the reason she pursued her legal career in family law.

“I am compassionate and attentive, which creates a safe and comfortable environment for my clients,” Ms. Mills said. “I am also a passionate advocate who strives to do what is necessary to protect the interests of my clients and their children.”

Dissolving a marriage or creating a custody arrangement is often portrayed as a highly adversarial process that leaves families broken and angry. However, Ms. Mills recognizes that taking the high road and cooperating can come a long way in resolving family issues and coming to an agreement that satisfies both sides.

“With cooperation and patience, a more amicable solution can be reached,” she said.


Ms. Mills is licensed to practice in California.


Ms. Mills received her Bachelor of Science in Business Management with a minor in Legal Studies from the University of San Francisco. She earned her Juris Doctor with a concentration in Child, Elder, and Family Law from California Western School of Law.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
