“I will be coming back for his help again in the future.  As for the service, the Client Portal was good for keeping updated, and Stephen’s communication was great as well.”


“Everything went smoothly.  I actually sent Stephen an email thanking him.  There are a lot of shady characters out there, and I feel like you all treated me good and fair.  I appreciate all your help.”


“Stephen is very professional.  He went through all the initial papers with me and made sure I fully understand all the legal components. He’s been keeping me abreast of everything, which is nice.”


“Stephen has kept me informed every step of the way. He even sent me a road-map of what things will probably look like along the way. I have been very happy with [the] service and am glad I chose Cordell & Cordell. Also, your front desk is wonderful. [The Administrative Assistant] has been a lot of help too.”


“Everything went well. I didn’t want the divorce, but if it had to happen, at least I had good representation. In fact, as [we] went back and forth attempting reconciliation, there was never even a hint of frustration from Stephen; constant professionalism. Yes, he provided the necessary warnings. but overall the service was excellent.”


“Stephen has made an obvious attempt to do everything he can for me and more. He’s been fantastic!”


“… Stephen has been doing great so far. He’s always there to answer my questions and even if I have to leave a message, he usually calls back within 30 minutes.”


“Thanks for all the help, you did a great job!”


“[Stephen] knows his stuff and gives good advice.”


“I’m quite impressed with the sincerity, forethought and understanding Mr. Chryst is able to have with us during this time of uncertainty and emotional strain. If I have questions that are unknown, he is quite expedient in finding out and letting me know. He has restored my faith in a profession that gets a bad rep from time to time.”
