  • John C. Collins

    I endorse this lawyer. I first met Cody when he was working as a prosecutor. What struck me was his drive. Many prosecutors just went through the motions; not Cody. He researched the issues prior to trial and put up one hell of a fight. When Cody decided to leave the prosecutors office I had no hesitation in giving him a glowing recommendation. He is dedicated, intelligent, and has a great courtroom demeanor.

  • Bradley Joseph Williams

    Simply put, Cody is a great attorney. His knowledge of the law and dedication to his clients' cases sets him apart from other attorneys. When he was a prosecutor, he was always a prepared and aggressive advocate in the courtroom. Luckily for those accused of crimes, his skills are now being used for criminal defense and are serving his clients well.
