Cordell & Cordell, the nation’s largest domestic litigation firm focusing on representing men in family law cases, has announced the opening of its first office in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Cordell & Cordell now has more than 150 attorneys working in 77 offices located in 27 states with the inaugural Iowa office scheduled to open Tuesday, July 2.
Perceptually, men are at a disadvantage in family courts, but Cordell & Cordell is expanding in an effort to support more men through the divorce process. The firm has established itself as a leader in family law devoted to equal rights for men facing divorce.
The new Council Bluffs office will broaden the opportunities for divorcing dads to gain information and counsel.

Divorce lawyers are one group certainly cheering for New York’s successful bid to legalize same-sex marriage.
According to multiple media outlets, divorce lawyers and experts expect to see a whole new demographic of clients in their office, although they are not necessarily celebrating a possible increase in business.
“I may be a divorce lawyer, but I don’t hope for the demise of marriages,” Bettina D. Hinden, a divorce lawyer, told the New York Times.
Bettina said understanding the new implications for divorce posed by gay marriage is an issue that will be investigated in coming weeks. Child custody questions – such as a case where a lesbian couple raises a child together but only one is the legal guardian and birth mother – and where a couple can actually divorce are two major complications that may come to light.
Alton Abramowitz, the vice president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, told the New York Daily News that divorce lawyers will likely see an increase in business over the next decade. In addition, he said there will likely be a surge in gay and lesbian couples requesting prenuptial agreements.
New York is the the largest state in the nation to legalize same-sex marriage. Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Iowa and Washington, D.C., have also legalized the institution for gay couples.
