About Attorney Scott Cody

Your lawyer needs three qualities to effectively represent you:  Skill, Communication, and Dedication. 

Great success always requires talent, and this is true whether you’re talking about athletes or architects.  Attorneys are no different.  Legal skill is knowledge of both the letter of the law and how to use it.  While many lawyers focus their skill on only certain matters, Mr. Cody has proved to excel in many diverse areas of the law.  This allows him to enjoy a wide-ranging practice covering all of your needs in both litigation and transactions.

But talent is only one part of the equation.  Especially nowadays, any argument is only as effective as its presentation.  Your lawyer needs to communicate at a high level both to you and to others for you.  Mr. Cody’s long experience speaking and writing professionally gives him a distinct advantage in representing clients confidently and persuasively to judges, juries, and opposing counsel.

One final factor trumps all others.  Whatever it is you need, your attorney must commit himself to you and be dedicated to achieving your interests.  In transactions, Mr. Cody focuses foremost on the client’s goals and pursues them with creativity and determination.  In litigation, Mr. Cody identifies the client’s best possible outcome and fights zealously to achieve it.
