Cody was amazing. He went out of his way to meet us and accommodated some special circumstances I have with the family. He was straight to the point, delivered exactly what he said for a very fair price. WhileWhile I hope I don't need his Services again he would definitely be the first call I make and I highly recommend him to anyone else.

Cody was great to work with. He took a case I didnt think could be fixed and made it where I didnt have to do any jail time or even any community service ! Im happy with the outcome and will use him again if I have to but hope I never do have to!

Before meeting with Cody I went to another lawyer. That lawyer collected his fees up front and then told me that winning my case was absolutely impossible. He strongly suggested that I plead guilty.
I then went to Cody Dowden (thank goodness). Cody worked out a deal in which I was found not guilty! This saved me a lot of hardship and also a lot of money in the long run.
Cody was masterful in the court room. It was obvious that the prosecutors and the judge trusted and respected Cody. It was that mutual respect that enabled him to work out a deal that I believe only he was capable of.
Cody is a consummate professional. I highly recommend that you hire him should you ever find yourself in need of a DUI, DWI or Criminal defense lawyer.

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.

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.
