Independence Divorce Attorney Matthew Peters | Cordell & Cordell

Matthew Peters

Litigation Attorney

Independence divorce attorney Matthew Peters appreciates that family law provides an attorney the opportunity to represent a client and guide them through one of the most difficult experiences of their lives.

“I empathize with my clients and care about them and their cases,” Mr. Peters said. “An empathetic and understanding approach to cases helps my client understand what is happening in their case and how the law applies.”

Mr. Peters always cautions that the process in place in each case is there to keep things in line and that it can sometimes feel frustrating. However, that does not mean the case is bad or stalled, or that the judge is not paying attention.

“The process has specific steps in place and I’m always available to review next steps and progress of the matter,” he said.
