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.
Family law incorporates every aspect of your life. Whether it is the protection of your finances, property and assets along with the custody and visitation rights to your children, it is vital to have an experienced and knowledgeable legal professional on your side.
From the moment a client visits our Salt Lake City law office for their initial consultation, I will take the time to address all your questions and concerns. Once a person becomes a client, we will begin working diligently to help build your case and protect your rights. Over the last 18 years, I have successfully represented men and women for the following types of family law issues:
While every man, woman and child would prefer families stay together forever, fate sometimes has other plans. My job as your Salt Lake City divorce attorney is making sure every issue brought to me gets handled with yours, and your children’s, best interests at heart.
Family law isn’t perfect, although legal professionals work hard to unify deserving families with children, or at least see to it justice is served in keeping those who harm families far, far away. As such, it is important to understand not every problem can be solved alone. Sometimes it takes the help of others to move on from a difficult situation. Family law problems can often get emotional and even affect your health and happiness. As your legal advocate, my job is to fight to protect your rights, look after your best interest and to help every client navigate effectively through the legal process.
Ms. Cordano and staff has been my rock in this storm of divorce I am navigating. Ms. Cordano your calming, steady presence continues to keep my heart in my chest.
Recently, my/our character was viciously attacked in court. There is one intangible characteristic I take very personally and that is character. Character tells our story without words. Your character in response to the petitioners approach held the standard of professionalism one should expect in these sensitive, stressful situations.
Having worn a uniform in service to my Country and a badge to serve and protect my community, having someones back “Got your 6” is paramount. You have my back.
Thank you – for being you, for being real and being prepared in all situations.
