Cody Nguyen is a Senior Solicitor at Shine Lawyers’ Brisbane office. As part of the Class Actions team, Cody specialises in bringing representative proceedings on behalf of groups of people who have suffered wrongdoing.
Cody was admitted to practice as a lawyer in Queensland in 2014, and joined the team at Shine Lawyers shortly afterwards. He holds a dual degree in Law and Business, majoring in Accounting and has a special interest in banking and financial class actions. Cody’s experience includes assisting clients who have suffered loss due to negligent or inappropriate advice from financial advisers.
Prior to joining Shine Lawyers, Cody worked at the Australian Taxation Office where he gained invaluable experience, which he applies to his practice within the legal sphere.
As a lawyer, Cody prides himself on being able to understand the issues that arise within his clients' legal claims. He communicates these complex concepts in plain, simple language so his clients understand their rights and entitlements, and are able to make informed decisions regarding their case.
'I do the work I do because it allows me to help clients access justice where previously, they may not have been able to.'
With a commitment to assisting his clients access justice and results, Cody feels a strong affinity between his own values and those of Shine Lawyers.
'Everything we do is about standing up for the little guy, a value that resonates strongly with me, and is what makes me proud to be part of the team at Shine Lawyers.’
Cody pursued this objective of ensuring access to justice within the wider community through his volunteer work at Wynnum Manly Community Legal Service.
