Biography

Profile

Some of Cory's best work has been on the cases that presented the biggest challenges. Cory has won jury verdicts in excess of $1 million in at least five cases where the defendant had made no offer to settle the case at the time of trial and has obtained several seven and eight figure settlements on the eve of trial. He has won record-setting verdicts in highly disputed liability cases and won the largest Texas verdict in a helicopter accident case in recent years.

Cory's success is not limited to Texas. He has obtained many settlements and verdicts in excess of a million dollars all over the country. Cory has won verdicts or settlements in more than 50 cases for more than a million dollars. Cory's approach of aggressively preparing his cases for trial ensures the best results for his clients. His practice focuses on helping those suffering from catastrophic injuries caused by the negligence or recklessness of others, including trucking accidents, maritime accidents, industrial accidents, and more. He also assists home and business owners throughout Coastal Texas who are facing insurance claims following Hurricane Harvey.

Cory attended the University of Texas and went on to earn his law degree from the University of Houston, graduating cum laude in the top 10% of his class.
