5/5

​”Rachel’s communication and her overall knowledge was great! I found comfort in her level of experience. She wasn’t quite as aggressive as I expected. However, she explained why it wasn’t necessary, and it made complete sense. I was thrilled with Rachel.”

5/5

“Rachel Schmidt did a outstanding job when you consider the complexity of my divorce. What differentiates her from my previous attorney is that she listened to me as I methodically presented the challenges before us. We would then strategize in a collaborative manner, as how to address the many different parts of my divorce decree. Since this was a “David taking on Goliath” scenario with Goliath having some “skeletons” in the closet, Rachel would allow me to draft certain portions of the decree as the boiler plate language was not conducive. Again, I would recommend Rachel Schmidt, of Cordell & Cordell, to anyone.​”

5/5

“I am extremely happy with the service I have received from Cordell & Cordell. This is the first time I have felt like my attorney really had my back and is looking out for me. When I met with Roger, I was asked what I wanted during this process, and I was not prepared to answer that question, because I had never been asked that question by my previous attorneys. My only regret is not hiring Cordell & Cordell sooner.”
