California attorney Vicki Cody knew in the third grade that she had a calling to advocate, and provide a voice for those that could not do so on their own. Ms. Cody was introduced to the law by watching Perry Mason, and found her passion for the law though her personal hero Justice Thurgood Marshall. Justice Marshall once said, “In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.” This is a sentiment that Ms. Cody has taken with her through her extensive legal career.
Ms. Cody received her undergraduate degree from the University of California Berkley. Upon graduation she started working for the public at the Social Security office in Richmond, California. After six years working at social security, Ms. Cody truly understood that every human being has a fundamental right to be treated fairly. She made the choice to attend law school at Martin Luther King Jr. Hall at the University of California Davis. Ms. Cody graduated in 1991 and move to Los Angeles to begin her law career working as a civil rights activist.
While working in Los Angeles and Sacramento, Ms. Cody had the opportunity to work on cases involving civil rights, employment, and housing discrimination, police abuse, and employment litigation. Always keeping in mind her commitment to be accountable to her community and to the people, Ms. Cody also worked in Legal Aid and spent eight years as a Federal Public Defender.
