About Rex Padgett, Litigation Manager

Throughout his career, Indianapolis divorce attorney Rex Padgett has been in various roles in which people look to him for the answers, a confidant, trusted advisor, someone they can lean on. Family law is preciously that same scenario.

“It is one of the roughest patches someone will endure in their lives and they need to have a strong advocate in their corner,” Mr. Padgett said. “Each case is unique and bringing some solace to that person through this difficult time allows me to share in the process. Every person deserves a fighting chance.”

Mr. Padgett takes time to listen to the concerns of those he is assisting and is careful to explain how to handle the issues head-on.

“If you want an honest and fair assessment of your matter, you have come to the right person,” he said. “Not that other attorneys won’t tell you the truth, but clients do not deserve to have anything sugarcoated. You need to know upfront how things may or may not fare.

“If I had a crystal ball and could predict how the case would fare, I may be in a different line of work, but just like you didn’t expect to be in this position, I can only share my experience on what the judge has done in the past as well as what the law states. I work hard for all my clients to ensure they feel comfortable with the firm and myself through all aspects of litigation.”


Mr. Padgett is licensed to practice in Indiana.


Mr. Padgett obtained his associate’s degree in pre-mechanical engineering from Vincennes University. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business management marketing from the University of Phoenix. He received his Juris Doctor from Western Michigan Cooley Law School.

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.
