4.5 stars 10 totalReview Emy Cordano
Immediately I noticed that Emy was very focused on my case and very attentive to the details. I chose Emy because she only works in family law. Initially I was very reluctant to hire any attorney at all. I'm not experienced in matters of the court, and didn't really know what to look for in legal help. My concerns were swiftly left behind when I witnessed how hard Emy worked, how experienced she is, her focus, and her professionalism. Emy gave us the black and white truth in regards to the issues at hand. Emy provided us with complete knowledge as to where we were in the process, and insisted on my approval every step of the way in our strategy and legal document submission. Emy is a private attorney, and we actually appreciated this. She doesn't work for a big fancy law firm downtown, and doesn't have a balcony office on the 18th floor, but due to the fact that she is private she also has much more freedom to be herself than associated attorney. If I could sum up Emy in one word it would be this: "Warrior." If I were an attorney I would not want to see her name on the oppositions paperwork.
Maybe Emy is the best because she has a perspective from several countries. I was fascinated to know Emy is from south africa, where she saw injustice in families daily. I am just a local woman, never been anywhere other than mexico on vacation or to North Carolina to see my ex-husbands family on a trip so as you can imagine, I haven't seen much hardship here in Utah. I think because of that I didn't know who to turn to, my bishop advised I stay married, so I did for a number of years, unhappily. My ex-husband was mentally abusive, you don't know just how bad it is until you can't leave the house without anxiety and you always doubt yourself and feel terribly about who you are, you hate your reflection. I spoke with Emy and she set me on the path to rediscovering myself. I was able to file divorce and she helped me when my bishop tried to advise me against it. I am still an active member of the church, but I came close to the edge and without Emy holding my hand through the entire ordeal, I may have caved. Emy helped file, finalize and come out a better person from my divorce. I have a home, and can finally get back to finishing my degree and getting a job, something my ex-husband wouldn't let me do. Thank you Emy for saving my life, truly. This isn't me being sappy, it is me being thankful knowing someone was in my corner, for me! Best wishes to you and yours always, Debby J.
Emy helped me keep the roof over my head and that of my children. We had only been married a year but had 3 children together. He didn't cheat, he didn't do anything horrible, he simply decided one day not to be married anymore and told me to move out and that I could see my children 50% of the time. I was gobsmacked and turned to Emy for advice. It didn't take long after our first meeting to feel that Emy was on my side. She was very down to Earth, asked a LOT of questions but now I see why, because I got the one thing from the divorce I needed more than child support. I couldn't take my kids out of school, move jobs and find a new home all at once so without Emy I may have found myself homeless, jobless and on the streets! She is worth it! Thank you Emy for a great experience and for a very fast divorce. I hate to say it, to anybody, but if you are thinking about divorce, have kids in the mix, are worried about alimony and child support, please think of Emy.
I dealt with Emy for the wonderful custody battle I had with my ex husband. From day one she held my hand and explained in very simple terms exactly what we were going to do and how we were going to do it. I couldn't stand my children being awarded partial custody by the most idiotic judge out there and when the judge allowed the fact he had a number of adultery claims proven, women battery proven, and other items I won't go into...all proven, that he STILL had claim over influencing my children. I wish I had found emy for my divorce I might have gotten full custody of my children from the beginning. Thank you emy for all the help, the constant contact and for being available outside of normal hours to work around my schedule. I wish you the very best and hope that should anyone need help on their divorce or with their children, they pick up the phone and call you. warmest regards, Tanya.

I cannot reccommend the services of this very professional lawyer more highly. She immediately reassured me and put my mind at ease. Responded promptly to ALL of my communications and resolved my legal dilemma with a better than hoped for outcome. I really appreciated that i was kept in the loop every step of the way. Thank you Attorney Cordano!

I was in a ROCK and a HARD PLACE. Literally with my Ex and my daughters. I know that in a conservative state that it is very tough for a father to win especially against a stay at home mother but my kids are my life. From the first time I met Emy, I thought she was almost a little ADHD, but as I watched and listened to her I could tell that it was Passion, NOT ADHD!!! This Woman, Emy, completely understood what I was going through and I could see and FEEL this from her. It was like she BECAME emotionally invested into this case as well but stayed somehow level headed and very SMART through out the entire process. Not only did she Get me my Girls but my Ex has to pay ME CHILD support and she didn't work but was told she was capable of doing so now that nothing was there to impede her from getting one. I REALLY don't care about the child support as I have always taken care of everything financially in my home, but I even took care of my girls, on top of working full time. Emy was able to show and prove with investigator that I was the one that took the kids to and from school leaving work for a few, took and made all the DR appts etc. Alot of stuff that I wouldnt change for anything especially now that Emy was able to show it wasnt my ex and it was me. I cant think her enough for finding and arguing other cases and other things that won my hard fought case. Yeah she wasn't the CHEAPEST attorney in town BUT I don't think that the cheapest attorney in town would have won me my girls and I cant put a price on that, BUT she wasn't higher than the other 2 attorneys I talked to either one was at 250 a hour and the other was at 200 an hour. Emy Cordano was worth the 200 bucks an hour I paid her and probably actually owed her more because she didn't charge me for every call and question I had. I actually had her CELL PHONE and she comforted me when ever I started freaking out or panicking! Fighting for custody was the worst gut wrenching thing in the world and any of you that have gone through this before KNOW exactly what I am talking about. I wouldn't send anyone else anywhere but to her if someone I knew asked me. Emy Cordano is the reason I have my girls and she is the best. I can't thank her enough

Horrible!! She won’t answer your questions until the 5th email or call you give her and then charges you for every email she sent you without answering the question. Her pricing is ridiculous I spent over 6K in only 2 months and that is only attending one temporary child custody hearing. She will actually question what she is saying during the court time and will not fight for what you want she will ask you pointless questions and then at the time of the hearing date will than ask if you have all that information written down because she doesn’t. She is not professional and will suck you dry with all your money. I made all the copies and extra work to keep extra charges down and she still charged me even after she said she wouldn’t. She says she is a beast in the court room......NOT!! She did nothing...I could have done a better job myself!!She lets the other attorneys walk all over her because it doesn’t matter to her if your 1 year old little girl gets taken away from her mother because she already got paid! The father had nothing agents me but since she decided to sit back and not fight for my rights as a mother half of my time was taken away!!A 1 year old little girl needs her mother, her father is very important yes but she had NEVER been apart from me for 24 hrs until the day EMY CORDANO did not fight for my rights!
