Cody uses his background in communications, public service, and a reformed defense attorney to benefit his clients in actions ranging from motor vehicle accidents to complex medical malpractice actions. Cody is admitted to practice law in both Georgia and Alabama and is driven by the opportunity to help those who have been injured and need assistance negotiating and fighting for the best possible recovery.
