About Danielle Kulik, Senior Litigation Attorney | Member, Cordell Appellate Practice Division

Independence divorce attorney Danielle Kulik fully understands the consequences of not having proper legal representation in a divorce case and how disastrous that can be.

“Family law cases protect your rights to life, liberty, and your property,” Ms. Kulik said. “Courts get involved in our lives in various ways. The right to have a family and make a commitment does axiomatically get the government involved and when those relationships deteriorate it should not result in the giving up our freedoms.

“However, many times that happens if you do not have the proper representation. I fight to protect the lifestyles of my clients and their family.”

Ms. Kulik is highly analytical and very good at compartmentalization. It is necessary during a trial not only to separate your feelings from the testimony being provided but to also sort that testimony into categories for use on cross-examination and for the client’s ultimate benefit.

“It’s a long process, it’s a tough process,” she said. “I do not need to be a bully to get my point across. There is going to be a time to fight and a time to allow things to unfold. It is the art of the litigation and my methods are there to assist you.”

Ms. Kulik also always emphasizes to her clients that the end of a case is not necessarily when the judge proclaims a decision. She stresses the importance of making a proper record and protecting a client’s appellate rights during the entire process.

“Lose or win at trial, an appeal can be mitigated by either party,” she said. “The ability to litigate or defend an appeal is essential in the trial stage or else the appeal will be lost and even a favorable decision of the trial court can be reversed.

“In my career, I have litigated many different custody cases and divorces and know what pitfalls to look out for and what needs to be on the record. Not only am I a trial lawyer, but I am also an appellate lawyer.”

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.
