Advocates For Dad’s Rights and Fathers’ Rights

Joseph E. Cordell founded Cordell & Cordell in 1990 with his wife, Yvonne. Since then, the firm has helped men battle outdated stereotypes that exist within the family court system.

Despite fighting a system that seems biased against them, Cordell & Cordell has grown into the largest family law firm serving men in the United States. In 2015, the firm expanded internationally by opening an office in London.

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