Cody Emerson

Attorneys guy2 I focus largely on family law, but also practice real estate law, landlord/tenant law, wills, trusts, and estates, and DUI defense. I graduated from Florida State University with a bachelors in real estate and another in finance. I then attended Florida State University’s College of Law. While in school, I volunteered with the FSU Public Interest Law Center, representing indigent clients going through the family law system. I also clerked for Quinnell Elder Law Firm in Pensacola and a foreclosure defense firm while in Tallahassee. Since moving into private practice I have broadened my work to all areas of family law, real estate law, wills, trusts, and estates, and DUI defense.
