"Kim is great; she responds and reacts quickly. I have been working with Cordell & Cordell for about a year and a half now and given what I have to go through with my ex, Cordell & Cordell is the best decision I have made in a long time. Cordell & Cordell has lived up to EVERYTHING it advertises and everything I have read. I did a lot of research before choosing Cordell & Cordell, and even though I didn’t have a choice in which attorney was assigned to my case, I am so very lucky to have Kim as my attorney. I am 72 years old, I have a PhD and I have seen hell and high water, and Kim and Cordell & Cordell has guided me thought the hardest part of my life. I am in a very, very good place right now, and I have Kim and Cordell to thank for that."
