Cordell & Cordell takes great pride in our emphasis on providing top-tier customer service. Our attorneys are held to a high level of expectations, and strict standards of performance must be maintained. Periodic reviews ensure each attorney is living up to these requirements, and our Practice Quality Department provides a constant stream of real-time performance feedback.

Client Care, the customer service division of Cordell & Cordell, regularly conducts interviews with current clients to obtain honest assessments of their attorney’s performance and professional demeanor throughout the course of their representation. This process ensures that any complaints can be resolved as quickly as possible and gives us the flexibility to adjust our services to suit individual client needs.

The continuing effort of Cordell & Cordell to put clients first has led the firm to represent tens of thousands of clients while currently maintaining a 94 percent attorney satisfaction rate based on client-completed surveys. Here are what actual clients from North Carolina had to say about their experience of being represented by a Cordell & Cordell attorney.

“[My attorney and paralegal] were great. They helped me get through this terrible thing in my life. I remember in October of 2013, [my attorney] walked me through a lot of stuff and answered a lot of questions. She gave me personal attention while being professional. That is how [my attorney] handled it in our final hearing. Please tell [my attorney and paralegal] they did not do a good job, they did a GREAT JOB! [My account care representative] in the Accounting Department was good at getting me back my trust balance and always answered all of my questions. Cordell & Cordell has a great team.”

“My case resulted in a dismissal and I think Bennita did well getting us to that point. I connected with Bennita almost instantly due to our shared interest in diversity and equality, so I believe it was divine intervention that she was assigned to my case. She is very friendly, frank and her diverse background in family law was very helpful in my case. In different circumstances I would include her in my circle of friends and I hope that she would do the same.”

Allie has always kept me well informed and has gone above and beyond to show she truly cares about my case. It truly feels she is looking out for the best interest of both myself and my kids.  She is kind hearted yet strict with the opposing party by not letting things get by. I like that she provides me with all my options as well as her opinions. I  couldn’t be happier with the service that Allie has provided me.”
