Columbus Client Testimonials


“My experience with Cordell & Cordell, specifically Melinda, far exceeded my expectations. The representation was without a doubt focused on me, the client, not billing hours. The service far exceeded that which I have experienced from any other service provider. This positive experience extends from Melinda’s office to those I never met responding to billing inquiries and customer care service. Even after my case was closed I received a bill from the court, and when I sent Melinda a text over the weekend she actually responded saying she would address it on Monday, which she did. Simply wonderful service. Thank you.”


“Samuel has done a wonderful job. He’s very professional. I really like working with him and I’ve actually already referred him to a friend.”


“Strategically, you all do exactly what you say you’ll do … I respect how you run your business very professionally. From the same day call backs to the courtesy check ins. You all are very professional … Dan has been very proactive in working with other attorneys when necessary. In my past experience, other attorneys would use their lack of knowledge or experience as a reason to drive up my bills and “dance” around the issue. Dan has not done this at all and has been extremely professional! Overall, I’m very pleased! This has been a much better experience than the prior attorneys I worked with on my divorce. I really feel different about my experience with Dan. He’s been extremely professional. He is always responsive and gives me factual, law based, solid information whenever I have questions.”
