About Matthew Branson, Litigation Manager

Independence divorce attorney Matthew Branson is drawn to family law because of his personal experience.

“I like helping hurt families,” Mr. Branson said. “My wife and I have been foster parents for a number of years, and have seen how families can really struggle. Practicing family law lets me roll up my sleeves and try to make things better.”

Mr. Branson is a self-described “legal nerd” and loves researching all the unique and challenging situations. He also considers himself unflappable. No matter how crazy or chaotic a situation might be, he provides a calm and helpful voice of reason.

“It’s going to be better,” he said. “No matter how desperate it looks, we are going to find you a new and workable ‘normal.’ Litigation can be messy, but we will get through it and come out on the other end.”


Mr. Branson is licensed to practice in Missouri.


Mr. Branson received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Kansas. He earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law.

Professional Experience

Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, Mr. Branson practiced family law and personal injury law.

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.
