Cordell & Cordell is pleased to announce that the attorneys with the St. Louis-based HHG law firm (The Hais Group, PC) have joined Cordell & Cordell as of August 1.

The Hais Group, a Top-10 Best Law Firm in Customer Service award winner from the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, has practiced in the greater St. Louis area for more than 30 years, with a focus on family law and divorce. “Their background and experience align well with Cordell and Cordell,” said firm CEO Scott Trout.

“Both firms are staffed by teams of incredibly talented, hard-working attorneys whose top priority is delivering excellent client service. Cordell & Cordell has a long history in family law, and the addition of the skilled team at The Hais Group will only strengthen our ability to deliver excellent representation to clients in the St. Louis area,” Trout said.

Susan Hais and her husband, Sam, who previously served as a family court judge in St. Louis County for more than 25 years, helped establish The Hais Group as one of the top family law firms in the St. Louis area. Susan is a preeminent family law practitioner in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area and was named the “Most High-Profile Divorce Attorney in St. Louis” by the Ladue News.

“We at HHG feel that this is a move forward that will add gravitas to our slogan of ‘A passion for justice,’” said Susan Hais. “Cordell & Cordell advocates for the same purpose and we are excited about working with the attorneys and the added resources of such a powerful firm.”

Susan will be Of Counsel with Cordell & Cordell and will continue to focus her practice on complex divorce litigation, including evaluations of complex financial interests and tax issues to cases dealing with child custody and support. The Hais Group attorneys, Dzenana Delic, Josh Renbarger and Michael Sloane will also be joining Cordell & Cordell.

Cordell & Cordell is one of the largest family law firms in the United States with 300+ attorneys having served more than 250,000 clients over the last 30+ years, and with offices internationally in the United Kingdom.

The Hais Group, now a Cordell & Cordell firm, will relocate to the Cordell & Cordell Headquarters at 600 Kellwood Parkway, Suite 310, Town and Country, MO. 63017.
