Cody is the Managing Partner of Coastal Collaborative Family Law, a Collaborative Family law firm serving client throughout the State of Florida.

Prior to founding Coastal Collaborative Family Law, Cody worked for several years as a Supervising Attorney with Gulfcoast Legal Services, a Legal Aid organization serving several counties in Florida.

His work at GLS lead him to a realization. Family law litigation is extremely hard on families. The trauma and pain experienced by his clients lead him to begin exploring alternative, less traumatic methods for resolving family law cases. He wanted a client-centered approach that allowed for the ability to address the typical issues involved in a family law case, while also maintaining the flexibility to address aspects of mental health and complex financial issues. The collaborative law process was the solution. He formed Coastal Collaborative Family Law as a way to present an alternative to his clients.

Outside of work, Cody enjoys reading, cooking, spending time with his family, and serving his community through several volunteer activities.
