My legal career has been dedicated to assisting individuals and small business owners with domestic litigation needs. With Cordell & Cordell P.C., my law practice is limited exclusively to the representation of men and fathers in divorce, child custody and modification, and post-dissolution matters.
Recently, I was honored by Indiana Super Lawyer Magazine with a family law "Rising Star" designation for 2011. This a peer-nominated award limited to the top 2.5% nominated Indiana lawyers who are either under 40 or have less than 10 years in practice. I was also named Cordell & Cordell P.C.'s "Rookie of the Year" for 2010.
Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, P.C. I worked with a Carmel, Indiana family law firm, focusing my work on assisting owners of closely held businesses in divorce and individuals with high conflict child custody and parenting time disputes.
I have also represented individuals, as well as group and class litigants in employment, Title VII, and insurance disputes in both the State and Federal Courts, arbitration, and various administrative agencies.
While in law school I served as a judicial law clerk with the Circuit, Paternity, and Title IV-D Courts of Marion County, Indiana. I am also a former probation officer with the Miami County (Indiana) Probation Department.
I am committed to taking extra time with clients, to listen to their needs and to lead them through the domestic litigation process so that they understand their options, as well as the benefits and risks of those options. While representing any father in domestic litigation I strive to analyze my client’s needs and goals, and then develop a comprehensive and collaborative strategy to achieve those goals and deliver the best possible results.
