The Normandy Park Blog would like to welcome back the Law Offices of W. Tracy Codd as an Advertiser!
Tracy’s a longtime Burien resident. He attended nursery school in Seahurst. He then attended local public schools, and is a 1979 grad of John F. Kennedy High School. After that he had a gig as a college tennis player at the University of San Diego, but the gloom and doom of the Seattle area called him back to finish at the University of Washington. Then off to UPS Law School to get his law degree, then back to the University of Washington to get an MBA.
In 1987 he hung his law shingle in downtown Seattle to become a sports agent, specializing in representing baseball players. But Burien called him back. In the early 90s he started office sharing with his Father, Paul J. Codd. Paul J. Codd has been a Burien general practice lawyer for over 45 years. He’s also served as a municipal court judge for 30 years. His sister Julie Codd also shares office space.
“I’m lucky to see my family members every day. I’ve often benefited from my Dad’s years of accumulated wisdom,” states Codd.
Tracy’s practice is limited to Plaintiff’s Personal Injury cases, Criminal Defense and Estate Planning, the latter being an increasing area of emphasis and expertise. But instead of talking about the law, Codd chose to use his complementary BTB “Blogvetorial” to sing the praises of Burien, his family and his upcoming fundraiser climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
In Codd’s mind, “Burien is one of the best kept secrets, if not in all of the state of Washington, certainly King County. The quality of life, the water, access to the freeways and the firmly rooted community,” are at the top of his list.
As a lifelong athlete, Codd continues to run to keep fit. As a former Marathon Man and Iron Man, he has diverted his running to “cause related” races and shorter distances. He hopes to run into his 60′s or 70′s.
CODD TO CONQUER KILIMANJARO FOR A CAUSE
Codd also has a philanthropic bent to his athletic pursuits – he plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the world, to help conquer Autism.
“I feel very passionate about the issues surrounding Autism and wanted to do something to raise funds towards the fantastic care and support provided by the University of Washington Autism Center. For those suffering from the effects of Autism, and their family and friends, it is like climbing an unassailable mountain every day, so climbing one of the most iconic mountains in the world seemed a perfect way for me, in a small way, to raise awareness and funds.” For more information about the climb, please see his Facebook page here.
Codd and his family live in the Burien area. His wife Michelle is part owner of Poggi Bonsi. They moved back to Burien shortly after they started a family. Daughters Sydney (20) and Caroline (19) are active in pursuing their careers, while son Stuart (17) is on the Mount Rainier High School swim team. Son Paul (12) is carrying on the family sports tradition by playing soccer at St. Francis and by competing in tennis at various tournaments.
