Throughout high school, college, and law school Cory worked during the summers as a commercial salmon fisherman both in the Bristol Bay area of Alaska and in the waters of Puget Sound.
Cory is a partner in the firm and maintains a busy general trial practice both pursuing and defending the interests of his clients. His practice includes representation of clients in injury claims, including injuries caused in vehicle collisions, injuries arising from sexual abuse or assault, and injuries arising from negligent or intentional actions of others
Cory's practice also includes representation of clients in real estate disputes including litigation involving adverse possession, boundary disputes, easement claims, purchase and sale disputes, as well as misrepresentation and fraud claims involving real estate.
Cory's practice also includes representation of clients in family law matters including divorce, legal separation, parenting and custody disputes, child support disputes, non-parental and third party custody disputes.
Cory is keenly aware that resolving disputes in court can be costly, and that litigation can take more than a financial toll, both for clients pursuing claims and those defending against claims. He understands well that successful representation of a client's interests in court requires thoughtful analysis, thorough preparation, sharp focus, and the will to win.
