Our firm diligently investigates and researches. We care about our clients and love our profession. But the firm stands out primarily for one reason, Cody is vicious in the courtroom, and he knows what the prosecution is thinking.

Before Cody began fighting for the rights of the accused, he gained invaluable experience and knowledge working as a prosecutor. Cody chose to work as a prosecutor to gain insight into how the prosecution thinks and how they prepare for trial. This experience allowed Cody to develop high-level trial skills quickly by trying numerous cases.

Once Cody felt he had learned what there was to know about the prosecution side, he chose to devote himself to criminal defense and help those accused of crimes. Since becoming a Criminal Defense Lawyer, Cody has been asked to train other criminal defense attorneys and he routinely speaks at conferences and seminars on his methods. Cody has also been featured on the television programs 48 Hours and 20/20 for his defense work.

“Cody had us at hello. My daughter was facing very serious charges due to an unfortunate accident. We visited with 3 lawyers before coming to see Cody. He returned my daughter’s call immediately. Upon meeting with Cody there was a sense of total trust, knowledge, and responsiveness. Cody and his team fought in her defense 110 percent. He kept her out of jail and saved her from losing her medical license. I would call Cody in a heartbeat if I ever needed an attorney.” – Pamela
