Senior Litigation Partner

About Kristin Zurek, Senior Litigation Partner

Kristin Zurek has 20 years of experience in the field of Family Law. Kristin began her career working for a current St. Louis County Family Court Commissioner and focused her practice on family and juvenile court matters, including adoptions and guardianships. She joined Cordell & Cordell 17 years ago as an Associate Attorney and has risen through the ranks to become a Senior Litigation Partner. In her role as a Senior Litigation Partner, she is in charge of the oversight of the Firm’s Senior Litigation and Litigation Partnership teams nationally. She has been actively involved in litigation training and mentorship of younger attorneys at Cordell & Cordell throughout her entire career with the firm while playing an instrumental role in both contributing to, facilitating, and teaching at the Firm’s multiphase trial advocacy training program.

Ms. Zurek is also a well-respected and tenacious litigator who handles high conflict family law cases involving complex custody and financial matters including niche areas of enforceability of prenuptial agreements and contested adoptions. Most of her clients are going through a high conflict situation and are looking for help at stabilizing their emotional lives as co-parents and their financial lives post- divorce. Ms. Zurek says, “Attorneys and their clients should be a cohesive team, working toward a unified goal.”

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.
