Meet The Cast of “The Code” on CBS

The Code

In April 2019, CBS debuted its new legal drama, The Code. The series focuses on the professional and private lives of some of the military’s brightest sparks, all of whom have trained to serve their country as prosecutors, defense lawyers, investigators, and first and foremost, marines. Captain John “Abe” Abraham is an ambitious former marine who switched to a career in law after an accident in Afghanistan forced him to abandon active duty. One of Abraham’s closest friends and respected colleagues is Captain Maya Dobbins, an intrepid defense attorney who’s relentless in her pursuit of justice. On the other side of the fence to Dobbins is Major Trey Ferry, a prosecutor whose ferocious pursuit of suspects makes him a force to be reckoned with. Commanding officer Colonel Glenn Turnbull, meanwhile, is one of the highest-ranking female officers in the Judge Advocate Corps. While she may be a demanding boss, she’s also highly respected and manages to inspire the loyalty and trust of her underlings. Last up, we have Lieutenant Harper L, an upwardly-mobile assistant lawyer, and Warrant Officer Rami Ahmadi, a paralegal. To learn more about the cast, read on.
