The Cordell & Cordell Mission


Cordell & Cordell’s mission, to provide a passionate and intelligent devotion to excellence while advising and advocating for men before, during and after divorce, is a large part of the firm’s success. Recognizing the inequality men face on an everyday basis in family courts across the country, Cordell & Cordell has attempted to level the playing field by focusing their practice on the rights of men and fathers. As family courts slowly work to modernize the dated statutes and application of laws, Cordell & Cordell attorneys work vigorously to ensure fathers receive the custody they deserve, and that men everywhere are treated as fairly as possible in a system that notoriously stacks the cards against them.

Clients are a Priority


Cordell & Cordell’s dedication to client satisfaction extends through all levels of the firm. From the attorneys and their legal teams to the accountants and Client Care representatives in the corporate headquarters, every member of the firm works to provide top-tier legal representation. The firm’s commitment to clients is epitomized through Cordell & Cordell’s 10 Commandments of Customer Service:

  1. Each Cordell & Cordell family law client shall receive intelligently aggressive divorce representation.
  2. Each Cordell & Cordell client shall be presented with all options providing the best chance of success in their custody, support or divorce case.
  3. Each Cordell & Cordell client is entitled to a trial and shall never be pressured into settling his case.
  4. Each Cordell & Cordell client shall receive prompt and courteous responses to all questions.
