I’m Emy A. Cordano. Family law is my passion, and success runs through my veins. I’m an intelligent, experienced Salt Lake City divorce attorney ready to help clients combat life’s many challenges. From alimony to parental rights and every legal matter in between, trusted by many yet feared by opposition.
Nothing disturbs me more than having conversations with people that seem like they’re mentally floating in some galaxy far, far away instead of paying attention to matters at hand.
I’m educated. I’m a people person. Understanding that every family man and woman walking through the door will have problems indicative to their future parenting or marriages is my job. I do not take cases and ‘categorize’ them; instead, each individual seeking my legal expertise opens a new chapter in my personal practice.
An attorney cannot know and understand a client without having walked in their shoes. I’ve walked in your shoes. Many, many times.
Fearless. Determined. Effective. That’s the representation you want, so that’s what I deliver.
