Cordell Discusses Common Divorce Mistakes

Interested in learning about the worst mistakes men make in divorce, the Chicago Tribune interviewed Cordell & Cordell principal partner Joseph Cordell about his newest book “The 10 Stupidest Mistakes Men Make When Facing Divorce.”

Cordell’s advice is based on his own personal experience going through a divorce and his professional experience representing men in divorce for more than 20 years.
