Regional Managing Attorney

About James C. Todd IV, Regional Managing Attorney

Upon graduating from law school, Greenville divorce attorney James C. Todd IV joined a general practice law firm where he was exposed to all aspects of the law. That is when he realized he was most effective in family law.

“Family law gave me personal satisfaction by helping clients during some of their most difficult situations,” he said.

Mr. Todd understands the complexities involved in the majority of divorce cases. He is compassionate toward his clients as they try to wrap their minds around what is ahead of them. He clearly lays out what options they have available to them, and does everything he can to advocate on their behalf so that their rights are protected.

“I am dedicated to my clients, and I will work tirelessly to achieve their desired results,” he said.

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.
