“Honestly, Cordell & Cordell has turned my life around. In the beginning, I was hardly seeing my son. They were also really good at keeping me updated on what they needed and when … They were also very forgiving and understanding when I wasn’t able to get them documents or other things right away. I’ve already referred them to others and would definitely use them again if ever needed. I tell people all the time [that] they’ll have to pay for it but it’s well worth it …  I’m blessed to be working with them.”


“I took a liking to Anne right away. Anne did more in two hours than my previous attorney did in 10 months. She has been very thorough and succinct in explaining the process. She has been empathic throughout this process. I appreciate this professionalism and understanding the situation. She wasn’t pushing an agenda and allows me to tell her what I feel is fair. She tells me from a legal perspective what the law allows and keeps me grounded. She very good! Anne is very thorough and clear.”
