About Cody S. Harris:
Whether quietly resolving a high-stakes criminal investigation or defeating a multi-million dollar damages claim in the pre-trial stage, Cody Harris’ tenacious case strategies, compelling briefs, and talent for persuasion safeguards his client’s bottom line, reputation and even their freedom.
In addition to handling the white collar, securities, appellate and business litigation detailed below, Mr. Harris also developed a first-hand understanding of a prosecutor’s mindset by spending a year trying and resolving cases at the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office. As a result, he can better anticipate his opposing side’s motivations, use of evidence, objections and other tactics. Moreover, as a constitutional law instructor for the Stanford Continuing Studies Program, Cody routinely explains complicated legal concepts to laymen, a significant advantage when presenting a complex case to a jury.
Prior to attending law school, Mr. Harris worked with business clients across a variety of industries as a management consultant, before serving as a communications director for a senior member of Congress.
