Client Testimonials

William J.

5 Stars

“[My attorney] does great with keeping me informed; I never feel out of the loop. He has been awesome! He never gives me unrealistic expectations.  [My attorney] always gives me my options and gives outstanding advice. He has been great and very level headed, which I needed.”

Sharing is caring!

Clifford S.

5 Stars

“[My attorney] did a really good job. I had a hard time in the beginning emotionally with paying attention and understanding all the legal explanations. I have never had a lawyer before, but it seemed like [my attorney] met all my needs. I am really glad I hired a lawyer, because it gave me peace of mind that I am doing everything I can to take care of my rights and my son. I like [my attorney] on a personal level too. He is very professional but could sneak in a light anecdote at just the right time. He did a great job on my case.”

Christopher M.

5 Stars

“[My attorney] is doing great [at] making good judgment calls and good tactics. Anytime I have a question, all I have to do ask. He gets back to me really quick.”

Steven N.

5 Stars

“[My attorney] is [a] very calm person, and he didn’t put on a show. Basically, he tried to tell me the worst case scenarios and prepared me [so that] if it did turn out unfavorably, it wouldn’t  be a surprise.  He is [a] very down to earth and no-nonsense person.  I felt really comfortable with him as my attorney.”


5 Stars

“[My attorney] was always very responsive to my calls and emails. He explained everything very thoroughly and took the time to explain parts of my case that I didn’t understand. He was patient with me when I was slow in providing answers or documentation and made me feel comfortable during a very uneasy time.”


5 Stars

“[My attorney’s] communication has been good, and he’s counseled me well.  He gave me the facts to help me make the best decisions.  So far I’m very happy with the direction the case has been moving.”


5 Stars

“Either by email or phone, he gets back with me; he’s good about that. He does an excellent job of hearing me and letting me vent, then he’ll give me feedback and does a really good job. He’s an excellent attorney. He has great motions and great ideas. … I really like his motions to the court, and probably 95% of what I’m trying to convey he’s able to put into motion. He does a really good job talking to opposing counsel … and keeping them in check. He knows the law and is really good off the cuff. He knows what the judges and the court will accept and not accept. He has a very good understanding of the law and is a really good attorney.”

“Obviously money is a sensitive subject, but for the service that I’m getting I expect to be billed for what I’m getting.  I’m impressed with what I’ve seen thus far.  I’ve checked out other firms and spoke with people that went with [Cordell & Cordell], and they’ve said all good things.  Everything is great so far, but it is still early in the case.  So far I’m very satisfied.”


5 Stars

“He is doing everything he is supposed to be doing and I’m getting what I paid for.”

“[My attorney has] been really good about returning my calls. He’s very thorough in his explanations regarding his actions plans and the directions that we’re going. He’s been great. …”


5 Stars

“I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case.  It was better than what I hoped for.  I very much liked the Client Portal and how I can see real-time updates and notes on the case and didn’t have to call the office to find out little details and billing information; I was able to go online to see for myself.  I appreciate the truth in advertising; I picked Cordell and Cordell because it was advertised as a family law firm for men and I felt that was very much the truth.  I was initially worried about being treated unfairly by the Courts, but I felt that I was treated fairly throughout the process.”

He is knowledgeable with the law, pertaining to my case, and I put my trust in him to help me make decisions for a good outcome. He advises but also listens to what it is that I am seeking.​ I was happy with the ease of getting a knowledgeable attorney in the state I needed, who was upfront with the cost.
