Cody Fisher – Attorney

I am a Nashville Defender because everyone deserves a committed defense.

Meet the Defenders

Cody was born and raised in Nashville. He earned his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, where he graduated in 2021. During law school, he gained experience in criminal defense through various clinics. He represented clients charged with misdemeanors in state court, filed sentence reduction motions in federal court for clients convicted of drug crimes, and investigated old convictions as part of the Innocence Project. Cody’s most impactful experience in law school was investigating, drafting, and arguing a petition for parole on behalf of a client serving a multi-decade sentence for charges he received as a fourteen-year-old. As a Nashville Defender, Cody is grateful for a job that provides him the opportunity to advocate zealously for his clients.

Outside of work, Cody enjoys spending time with his wife and three boys. He loves books, and he’s always trying to find a new trail to run or river to paddle.
