Hired this firm to represent me during my divorce. My attorney talked the talked and barked like a bulldog (which I needed), and ended up being an easily intimidated and shy pug. In the end did not represent my best interest at all, had me complete all sorts of...

Sir. It's best to move on.

I have stood in your shoes. I hired this firm and found the same results. It is all about billing, billing then more billing. Send them information, they read, reply, file, copy, make another copy....hence, a single email can wind up costing 400.00.

I think Mr. Cordell himself is a good attorney, but the folks under him are terrible! Best just to move on and write this down in the history books as an expensive lesson, as I am ruined for LIFE as a result of hiring this firm and nobody really cares.

Good Luck and may you manage to find some Peace in these most difficult times.

Same issue here, hired this firm, my attorney talked the talked and barked like a bulldog (which I needed), and in the end did not represent my best interest at all. I am now supporting my ex, an active addict, who also has custody of my kids.

It's a common practice with Cordell & Cordell, you pay a premium for inadequate representation.

As a responsible man and father, you start with a rough road ahead of you in the courts (unless you are connected), even if you are the first to file for a divorce in the state of Michigan. Cordell & Cordell, did not help in my case and it didn't help that my attorney (during negotiations) was asking the opposing attorney for advice on another case, rather than being vested in the current divorce case she was supposedly working on.

Rip off'd and Overbilled | Cordell And Cordell review

I am extremely upset with what appears to be a lot of the same issues, and what I have been reading. I should have done my research prior to hiring this law firm. I have a simple support modification, both parties agree, all paperwork sent to the lawyer to draw up motion and stipulation been billed $5800 to date and haven't even gotten in front of a judge yet. Been billed for errors that I was told does not make a differnece in the big scheme of things, an opposing part not part of the lawsuit was originally served for the attorney to have to resubmit and serve to proper person yet I get charged for their mistake. This is very upsetting and appears to be nation-wide. Please email at dadripoff@gmail.com perhaps we can come together to work on this big problem.

Well, another person Cordelled! But, however, this is what they do and you have to give Cordell & Cordell credit.

Men keep coming to them, give them money until they run out, and then they have to give up. Sorry to put it this way, but this is what Cordell & Cordell do. All of their attorneys are apparently commission based with salary. I had one by name of Erik Carter (whom is no longer with Cordell & Cordell) and he was the same.

Only cared about billing and NOTHING ELSE. I am ruined for life thanks to these folks, and I accept it because there is NOTHING I CAN DO NOW....

The Kansas firm is no better. They pulled the exact same scam on me. A total waste of money that is very critical at the beginning.
