About Niecie M. Strand, Sr. Regional Managing Attorney

Edina divorce attorney Niecie M. Strand enjoys working individually with people going through life transitions. That’s what drew her to family law.

“While family law matters are stressful and difficult proceedings, it is important to understand that most change is that way,” Ms. Strand said. “Being able to help individuals navigate these changes and answer their questions is incredibly rewarding.”

Ms. Strand is extremely patient and able to stay calm through adversity. That comes in handy as family law matters are among the most difficult legal proceedings an individual can go through.

“I find it is helpful for my clients that I am able to stay calm when things get especially tough,” Ms. Strand said.

There are ups and downs with just about every divorce case. Despite all those twists and turns, Ms. Strand never loses sight of what she is fighting for.

“It helps to take a deep breath,” Ms. Strand said. “This will likely get more difficult before it gets better. Keep your focus on the goal and let’s get there together.”


Ms. Strand is licensed to practice in Minnesota.


Ms. Strand earned her Bachelor of Arts in political science from Hamline University. She received her Juris Doctor from Hamline University School of 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.
