Treating You Right

Your legal needs come first

We Understand Your Needs

We know that the legal process can seem intimidating and confusing. You may not understand the laws at work in your case or whether taking legal action is the right option for you. At our law firm, helping people through difficult legal challenges is what we do, and we’d like to show you how we can help you as well.

For more than 23 years, attorneys Lyndon R. Helton and Blair E. Cody have spent their time helping people throughout the Hickory area and Western North Carolina. At Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, you’re never just another number. We take the time to get to know you, your situation and what you need in order to move on with your life.

Meet Our Team

The individual backgrounds of each of our attorneys truly set our law firm apart.

  • Attorney Lyndon R. Helton worked as an insurance defense lawyer before starting our firm. He understands how insurance companies operate, making him a valuable ally in serious personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. As a former prosecutor and public defender, he offers our clients an advantage when taking on their criminal defense matters.
  • Blair E. Cody III is a member of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice and is currently the President of the Piedmont Educational Foundation.
  • Attorney Chris A. Cordes is also a former prosecutor and public defender who knows how the state prepares criminal cases.

Our Approach To The Law

The moment you walk through the doors of our firm, you are immediately greeted by our staff who start the process of earning your trust. During your initial consultation, you will meet with one of our lawyers who will handle your case directly. We give you time to explain your situation and express your concerns. We then carefully review your case before giving you sound advice about your next steps.

Some law firms you may see on television will send an intake specialist to meet you. That person is probably NOT a lawyer. That’s not how we operate.
