Justin Alderman

Associate Attorney

Edina divorce attorney Justin AldermanEdina divorce attorney Justin Alderman wanted to pursue a practice in family law because he believes it is important to be able to genuinely help and care for individuals during some of the most difficult parts of their life.

The divorce process can be chaotic and it is common to feel overwhelmed during this period, but Mr. Alderman provides a steady presence and is there to walk his clients carefully through every single step.

“I pay close attention to detail when listening to the clients because the smallest detail or event, while it may seem insubstantial, can sometimes make all the difference,” Mr. Alderman said.

While Mr. Alderman works as hard as possible with his clients to help them achieve their goals in court, he never lets that dedication get in the way of offering an honest assessment of the situation.

“I tell clients that I have an aggressive personality, but that I am also going to be upfront and honest each step of the way,” he said, “because it does not make sense to waste his or her time and money.”

“… From the first time I walked into your office I’ve been amazed at the level of customer service, how responsive everyone has been, and really just how consistent, straightforward and forthcoming they’ve been so far.  I can’t say enough about how pleased I’ve been.  Two weeks after I retained there was an article in a magazine about Cordell, and with everything I read I couldn’t agree more.”


“Justin has a real attention for detail.  If he keeps that up, we’ll be good to go.”


“[I] am extremely happy with Justin and everything he is doing while representing me. I’ve been very impressed with the emails and phone calls I receive from him on all accounts. He is very knowledgeable and on top of everything. I want to add that I’m happy I found Cordell & Cordell and that I lucked out having Justin as my attorney.”


“Justin was fantastic! He was able to get back to me at a reasonable time. If I had any problems, he was on top of reaching out to the opposing counsel to tell them to stop. The entire firm is great. My son and I thank you to the fullest of our hearts.”


“Justin is straight forward, great communication, and he’s been excellent to work with.”
