joe cordell fox and friendsCordell & Cordell CEO Joseph Cordell appeared on “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News channel to debate family law attorney Vikki Ziegler on why men need extra legal protection in divorce court.

“The overwhelming statistics show that the corner of room among civil rights causes in American that is neglected still is the rights of men in domestic relations cases,” Mr. Cordell told host Steve Doocy.

The mindset and attitudes of Cordell & Cordell attorneys regarding their acknowledgement of discrimination is what separates the firm’s lawyers from others, according to Mr. Cordell.

“It’s understandable that guys are going to be predisposed to hire attorneys who at least acknowledge these statistics, such as 97% of the alimony orders in American are issued against men,” Mr. Cordell said. “Doesn’t that smell of bias and discrimination? We should not tolerate discriminatory practices in family court against men.”
