Call Us Fathers' Rights


Going through a divorce can leave you feeling vulnerable and unprepared. All of a sudden, you’re faced with decisions that will have long-term financial implications and could even affect the relationship you have with your children.

With so much on the line, you need a partner you can count on to walk you through each step of the divorce process. Our Albany, New York, attorneys are committed to providing men the legal support they and their children need both in and out of the courtroom.

We are advisors and advocates for men before, during and after divorce.

Divorce Attorneys Dedicated to Helping Men

Our Albany attorneys can help men with any divorce issue, including property division, alimony, child support and child custody.

They exclusively practice family law with a focus on men’s divorce so that they have a better understanding of the unique challenges you’re likely to face in the family court system as a man and father.

We know how important this transition is and will work to help you start the next chapter of your life.

Advocates For Dad’s Rights and Fathers’ Rights

Joseph E. Cordell and his wife, Yvonne, founded Cordell & Cordell in 1990 to help men level the playing field in the family court system. Since then the firm has fought against numerous stereotypes men face during the divorce process.

The firm has grown to more than 100 offices across the United States and is now one of the largest family law firms serving men in the world. In May 2015, Cordell & Cordell expanded internationally and opened its first office in the United Kingdom.

At Cordell & Cordell, we understand the unique challenges military families face during divorce.
