    I have been working at Cordell & Cordell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I work with wonderful attorneys, all with great attitudes. Everyone is our office is helpful and supportive. I know some attorneys are hard to work with because you can never get them to sit in their seat long enough to do the work. Not these attorneys. They are all hard working, they take ownership of their cases and they all make you feel valued as part of the team. Before agreeing to an interview, I was truly hesistant due to some of the offputting reviews. However, I've been here for about a year and have found that everything I've been promised has been delivered, management is supportive and there is a feeling of comraderie not only in our office, but also with offices across the country. Although they are corporate run, management is rather transparent and family oriented. Mr. Cordell is friendly and approachable. When COVID-19 happened, they did everything possible to allow employees with family to work from home. Mrs. Cordell even offered to help parents with homeschooling tips! That shows great care and concern. Additionally, the benefits are amazing. If you're willing to do your part to be health conscious, you are even further rewarded. I hope to be part of this team for a very long time. Cordell Law feels like home!

    Cons

    There are none that I've found.

    I have been working at Cordell & Cordell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cordell offers room for employee advancement, great pay and benefits and plenty of professional growth. They pay for CLE's and bar dues. They offer great programs to ensure their employees are keeping up to date on all area's of practice, including litigation skills. Workload is manageable with work-life balance. I enjoy my co-workers and believe my managers (even regional managers and partners) genuinely care for my success.

    Cons

    Honestly, there is not much negative I can say about this company. They expect you to do your job and will reward you if you do. But if you don't like to work or don't love family law, this may not be the company for you. Employees have to pay for parking. Other than that, you're valued and compensated for your dedication to your clients.
