  • Timothy James Bilecki

    I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Cory on a Marine Corps courts-martial case out of California. I was immediately struck by Cory's candor, grasp of the pertinent legal issues and litigation skills. He also has a well deserved reputation as one of the sharpest personal injury attorneys in the business. I recommend him without qualification.
