Each month, the Cordell & Cordell Men’s Divorce Podcast features an in-depth discussion on specific issues that affect men going through divorce.
This month, Cordell & Cordell Managing Partner/CEO Scott Trout is joined by licensed professional counselor Erika Ottolini. They detail the various emotions and struggles men can experience during the divorce process and how that factors in from both a legal and mental health perspective.
