Joe Cordell, Jennifer Paine and Cordell & Cordell Highlighted in USA Today Article about Fathers’ Rights

Principal Partner Joe Cordell, attorney Jennifer Paine and Cordell & Cordell clients recently contributed to a USA Today article about fathers’ rights, which was published this past Father’s Day weekend.

The article, “More dads demand equal custody rights,” ran in 35 other newspapers across the country with a total readership of 1.7 million people.

“Guys are living in a world where there are equal rights in the workplace. They live in families where their wives’ pay is as much as theirs. Now, they’re becoming insistent that their role be respected in family court and that the traditional stereotypes have to go,” said Mr. Cordell.

Ann Arbor, Michigan-based attorney Jennifer Paine mentioned that “Custody decisions not only vary from state to state, but even greatly within a state within a county from judge to judge.”
