“I am just amazed at the service I have gotten from Cordell & Cordell. … You guys didn’t make excuses or try to talk me out of anything. You may be expensive, but you’ve also been upfront about that as well. My case is very complicated and very new as far as what Texas has seen over the years. It is the my understanding that this has only been tried locally by the supreme courts. Despite that, Raul has been amazing to work with! There are a lot of negative things you can say about attorneys, but not Raul or his paralegal … Raul is extremely professional. It’s impressive to see the way the judge interacts with him versus opposing counsel because of the difference in professionalism. It has truly been eye-opening. Raul has been extremely professional and upfront. Sometimes it’s better to buy a Mercedes versus a Volkswagen. Cordell & Cordell is definitely the Mercedes, and I’m definitely getting my money’s worth!”


“I would like to tell Raul how much I truly appreciated his candor, honesty and support with letting me vent at times. I can admit that I ran into some financial issues and Raul was willing to work with me on this as well. Overall, Raul was just fantastic.”
