About Diona M. Potter, Lead Litigator

Marietta divorce attorney Diona M. Potter enjoys practicing family law because of its complete lack of monotony. Anything can happen on any given day.

“I know that, at the end of the day, what I’m doing affects my client’s life, not only in the short term but for the future,” Ms. Potter said. “I will do my best to help them craft the best possible future.”

Ms. Potter believes preparation is key when it comes to practicing family law. If anything, she over-prepares because every case is so fact-specific.

“Even in the best of circumstances, the process is difficult,” she said, “but I am here every step of the way to guide you and get you through it.”

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.
