    Douglas Cody is an attorney of superior abilities, great work ethic, and unimpeachable integrity. Doug worked for me, with me, and against me in a period of three years at Quantico, Virginia well over ten years ago. I have kept up with him ever since. I have had dozens of attorneys work for me, and he is by far one of the top advocates with whom I have had the pleasure to serve.
