"Michelle is very attentive and hard-working. I can certainly see that in her. Michelle is also a bulldog. Michelle is doing a good job on my case."
"... I have never had a worry with Michelle. Michelle will get back to me in minutes sometimes. Michelle established a great rapport with me [and] took an interest in my son. It makes me want to get divorced again just so that I could interact with Michelle - she's that awesome!"
"Michelle has truly earned every compliment that I could think of. Two things stand out: 1) Michelle is highly professional, very straightforward, knowledgeable and honest. 2) When they said that someone would call me back the same day, I got a call anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I was blown away each and every time."
"It has been a pleasure working with Michelle during this stressful time frame.  She is a definite asset to your organization. ..."
"I'm very pleased with Michelle's knowledge and professionalism. If I were to ever need another attorney in a matter such as mine, I would love to have her again. I've already recommended someone to Michelle! I really like Cordell & Cordell."
"Michelle is a rock star! You need more people like her! ... I was referred to you all, and it was a great referral."
"... [Michelle] is helpful and willing to answer my questions. She even went digging for information I needed."
"I think communication with Michelle is fantastic. Every time I call the office, they know exactly who I am. It's not 'let me place you on hold to pull your account up.' ... Overall I am extremely pleased with the services."

"Michelle or her assistant always got back to me the day I left a message. Michelle is always communicating with me and giving me sound advice. Service is awesome. Michelle is an exceptional attorney. She always listens to what I have to say and is not afraid to tell me the truth. She is always prepared and I feel that if it wasn't for her I would not have made out as well as I did. She made a bad situation bearable and guided me every step of the way."


​"Michelle was fantastic to work with. Her tenacity is one of my favorite qualities about her and that never wavered during the entire process."
