Experience the Difference

We’ve provided legal counsel in the real estate and billboard law industry for many years. Along the way, I’ve seen law firms come and go. The fact is, there are few law firms in California that practice billboard law. So, how is it that Hamlin | Cody continues to be a leader in the field?


First and foremost, we believe in transparency. That also means that we adhere to the highest standards of ethical and honest legal practices. Because, when you meet with us about a legal problem, we strive to get to the heart of the matter in a simple and direct way. We know that legal disputes are stressful and expensive. If your legal issue has an efficient, straightforward solution, that’s what we’ll suggest. But, if you’re facing a lengthy legal battle, we provide our best estimate for success and what it will cost.

We Get Results

We do more than analyze facts and apply the law. This is also about people. Many law firms tend to forget that. We listen. Our extensive experience with the law – and basic common sense – guides us to the strongest legal strategy. There’s power in simplicity. That means that we’ll often advocate a straightforward approach that quickly resolves your legal problem. And, when it comes to complex cases, you’re in good hands. We’ve handled those cases too.

We’re Inspired So You Get The Best

No matter how complex, there’s always an answer to most vexing legal questions. Because, when you work with us, we’re continually inspired by the challenges of developing the clearest, strongest legal case. We bring creative energy to every legal challenge. And when our clients are happy, we know we’ve truly succeeded.

There’s the law, and then there are the people who are affected by the law. Our focus is both. We’re in this for the long haul with the hope our clients will call on us again.

By the way, when you call us, you’re going to speak directly to one of our team members – not a five minute pre-recorded answering system that takes you through a frustrating maze of call options. And, if you don’t reach an attorney immediately, one of them will return your call the same day, or within 24 hours.

If you have a legal matter to discuss, please contact us to schedule a Get Acquainted Call or consider a case evaluation. For a fixed fee, we’ll meet with you to evaluate to your legal problem and provide an assessment of your case. If more work is required, we’ll provide you with a plan and an estimate.
