About Michele MacPhail, Litigation Attorney

Michele is an experienced attorney bringing a unique blend of legal expertise and personal commitment to her practice. Before joining our firm, she honed her bankruptcy and worker’s compensation skills, gaining valuable insights into different aspects of the legal world. The area of family law appealed to Michele because of her personal experiences, having witnessed the challenges her mother faced during her parents’ separation. “I am an eternal optimist, so I pursued this profession in order to equip others with tools and strategies to surmount this challenging period in their lives.”

As a level-headed and direct communicator, Michele understands the emotional strain and intrusiveness that can come with family law cases. Drawing from her eight years of military service, she approaches each case with a clear, strategic mindset, helping clients achieve their legal objectives and manage the emotional toll of litigation.

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.
