Highly Recommend !!!
During this very difficult time in my life, I knew my divorce was being handled properly and I was in good hands with Cody Vidrine as my attorney. Cody not only provided legal support; he also provided emotional support that helped me through the entire divorce process. His communications and follow-ups were precise, on time, and efficient. I am very thankful to have Cody as my attorney.
