“Michelle is very attentive and hard-working. I can certainly see that in her. Michelle is also a bulldog. Michelle is doing a good job on my case.”

Sharing is caring!

Mark M.

“Christine gets back to me right away. I am a very conservative guy, so I do not make a move without checking with Christine first. Her advice is good and her communications are substantive, informative and timely. I could not be happier. Cordell & Cordell does a good job.”

John S.

5 Stars

“… I have never had a worry with Michelle. Michelle will get back to me in minutes sometimes. Michelle established a great rapport with me [and] took an interest in my son. It makes me want to get divorced again just so that I could interact with Michelle – she’s that awesome!”

Craig M.

5 Stars

“Christine is very knowledgeable of my situation; always willing to help out to get the job done. She is always available too 24-7, and whenever I would call, she’d pick up or call me right back. Very nice person too. I couldn’t be happier.”

Craig M.

“Your firm has shown me the best way to go. Christine has helped me make my own decisions. Not only that, Christine has helped me make the most intelligent decisions possible. Christine and your firm are easy to work with and really fight for me!”

Joseph M.

5 Stars

“Michelle has truly earned every compliment that I could think of. Two things stand out: 1) Michelle is highly professional, very straightforward, knowledgeable and honest. 2) When they said that someone would call me back the same day, I got a call anywhere between 5-10 minutes. I was blown away each and every time.”

“… [Christine was] very responsive and kept me up to date and in the loop with all aspects of my case. Cordell & Cordell is a great firm with [an] easy process to follow. … You know your lawyer [is] on your side and working for your best interest. During my mediation, Christine Dolan saved me a few times from myself and got me the best negotiated deal she could. … Christine worked her tail off to make a better deal for me … I wish I would have known about Cordell & Cordell and had Christine on my side back then.”

Marlon B.

“Michelle or her assistant always got back to me the day I left a message. Michelle is always communicating with me and giving me sound advice. Service is awesome. Michelle is an exceptional attorney. She always listens to what I have to say and is not afraid to tell me the truth. She is always prepared and I feel that if it wasn’t for her I would not have made out as well as I did. She made a bad situation bearable and guided me every step of the way.”

​ “I believe that Lauren is an outstanding attorney. She is hardworking and very thorough. Lauren continuously puts in effort, time and energy into this entire process. During our communications, Lauren always has a strong ability to listen and fully understand any situation that arises. She takes in the relevant information, analyzes it, and creates a plan of action. She knows how to get important ideas across in formal legal writing, informal emails, in phone conversations, and through discussions in official legal settings. She prepares effective, clear, and well-reasoned legal documents. Lauren also puts in the time to know other professionals and judges in her field.
