Jacob A. Lawrence

Associate Attorney

Cordell & Cordell Indianapolis Divorce Attorney Jacob Lawrence Divorce attorney Jacob A. Lawrence’s pursuit of family law began as a way to gain litigation experience and evolved.

It evolved into wanting to truly help to put individuals that were going through difficult family issues in a much better situation and to make sure that each party in a familial dispute had the most zealous and fair representation possible.

“The best characteristic that I have for practicing law is preparation,” Mr. Lawrence said. “I try to make sure that I am prepared for absolutely every scenario that I am able to be confronted with so that I am never surprised and I can make the best argument for my client.”

Mr. Lawrence understands how exhausting this transition can be, but he promises to always do everything within his power to advocate for his clients to make sure their rights are protected.

“I will not stop fighting for  your best interests in any case that I represent you on,” he said. “You can expect there to be some challenges, but as long as  you trust me and the direction I am taking you, we will be in the best position possible to reach a favorable resolution.”
