About Paula Casey, Of Counsel

With an undergraduate degree in social work, Wichita divorce attorney Paula Casey realized that the true power in helping people change their lives was to learn the laws that affect their lives and how to use them to their advantage.

“Family law affects more people on a very personal level than any other area of the law,” Ms. Casey said. “Becoming effective, efficient, and an expert in that area allowed me to take this advantage to a much higher level.”

Ms. Casey’s empathy helps her understand what her clients are going through. She also has gone through a divorce, and the fact that she understands their frustrations and emotions helps her explain the process and guide them through the phases of the court case.

Ms. Casey is extremely honest and will tell you what to expect. She will tell you what an attorney can do for you, and what they cannot. She will tell you she wants to use your money and her time as judiciously as possible to accomplish the best possible outcome. She will tell you that no one is happy in this process, as the process itself is difficult. She will tell you that there are better, more positive ways to navigate the case and hopes you will trust her to lead you through it.

“The initial tenor of how a divorce is addressed can set the tone for the rest of your life,” she said. “It is essential you hire someone you trust to be forceful, but fair to all sides. You may think you want blood from the other side, but in the long run, an attorney who is fair to all concerned will leave you in a much better position.”


Ms. Casey is licensed to practice in Kansas.


Ms. Casey received her Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Kansas. She earned her Juris Doctor from Washburn University School of Law.

Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, Ms. Casey was a bankruptcy analyst for the Bankruptcy Trustee for the District of Kansas. She also was a juvenile court-appointed attorney and then opened her own law practice in 1985 before joining Cordell & Cordell in 2018.

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.
