Senior Litigation Attorney

About Lelan C. Kirk, Senior Litigation Attorney

Fort Worth divorce attorney Lelan C. Kirk believes the family unit is the most important and powerful aspect of an individual’s life as they grow, learn, and develop throughout life.

“It is imperative that we create strong, healthy, and functional family units,” Mr. Kirk said. “When family units are forced apart, it is imperative that we structure and create insightful solutions so that the family unit can continue to function.”

Mr. Kirk values honesty and transparency. He understands the importance of ensuring that the client understands the strategy of the case and the likelihood of success.

“Furthermore, I think it is important to be realistic and honest with the opposing side regarding their expectations of the results and the stance of either side,” he said.

The divorce process is stressful and you’ll likely have to make some very difficult decisions. However, Mr. Kirk reassures his clients that he will prepare them to make these decisions and consults with them so they’re comfortable before they make any decision.

“I reassure them that I represent their interest with every decision, discussion, and strategy that we employ,” he said. “My absolute goal is to make the client happy and comfortable with my representation regardless of the result.”

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.
