America Legal Codification Services

Our History

American Legal’s team of attorneys and editors are codification experts dedicated to providing you exceptional quality, service and support. We’ve built a reputation of excellence and innovation in codification services and are the trusted codification service provider for thousands of municipalities and local governments nationwide.

Employee-Owned

We began as the codification division of the Anderson Publishing Company in Cincinnati in 1934.  We became a separate corporation in 1979, and then proudly, employee-owned in 2006.

With more attorneys on staff than any other codification publisher;  you’ll always have experienced professionals working on your codes and answering your questions.

We’re Growing

Our professional knowledge and strong partnerships made us the choice for the Walter H. Drane Company and Sterling Codifiers to join the American Legal Publishing Group, in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
