About me

In 2010, I had the privilege to open Albury & Hawkins, LLC with my esteemed partner and dedicated friend, Melissa Hawkins.  Here, we focus on two main practice areas, personal injury and family law.  Melissa handles most of the family law cases and I handle the majority of the personal injury cases.  I understand that, as with most legal matters, these two specific areas of law provide for some of the most troubling and difficult times of our clients’ lives.  As such, while I take every opportunity to counsel our clients on both the legal and practical ramifications of their decisions, I believe that the law is a service industry and that the client is ultimately the “boss.”  Indeed, I consider it an honor and a challenge to meet and exceed the expectations of my clients, my colleagues, and the court.  I have a sincere reverence for the law, how it is created, and how it continues to develop.  As such, I also dedicated a significant portion of my practice to appellate work.  I feel blessed that I am able to exercise my passion for research and writing, while both helping people and earning a living to contribute to the well-being of my family and my community.

I enjoy spending time with my family, attending church, distance running and jigsaw puzzles.

  • Jeffrey Parker Shiver

    Korey is a diligent thorough and impressive attorney. She opposed me on a case when she used to do defense work for insurance companies. She was very tough but fair. I could tell then that her skills were best suited representing individuals!
