Senior Litigation Attorney

About Russell Frank, Senior Litigation Attorney

Russell is an experienced attorney known for his exceptional problem-solving skills. He has handled unique and challenging cases, one of which involved arguing on behalf of a biological father pursuing paternity despite the child being born into an intact marriage with both parents objecting. Ultimately, cases like this helped to lead to a significant change in the law, exemplified by Perkins v. Simmonds, that continues to impact Florida fathers today.

Beyond his courtroom successes, Frank is dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for his clients and is actively involved in the community; he currently serves on the Board of Directors for Impower, a mental health and drug treatment non-profit organization dedicated to helping families in the local community.


Mr. Frank is licensed to practice in Florida.

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.
