Columbus Client Testimonials


“Melinda managed the case well. She got to know me; she knew the court and the opposing attorney. She was always well prepared. I feel she gave me good advice and cared about the result. Hearing from others who have gone through a divorce and seeing what my now ex-wife endured with her attorney made me appreciate Melinda and the well-defined processes (billing, communication) and support information ( that Cordell & Cordell provided me during and after my divorce.”


“Oliver is very thorough! He’s really great at communication. I am never left wondering what’s going on. I always know that he’s there and he has my back. He’s doing a great job! Honestly, he’s perfect! I can’t say enough good things about him!”


“Any time, day or night, Melinda always gets back immediately. There have been times I’ve had certain concerns where a phone call would be warranted and she’s gone out of her way to pick up the pone, even while on vacation. I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. Melinda is the reason I’m with Cordell. I’m completely happy with her.”
