About me

Shortly after establishing the Baird Law Group with his wife, Cory survived a serious head-on car collision. His firsthand injury experience inspired him to become a tireless advocate for the rights and concerns of personal injury victims. Cory has since litigated a wide range of injury cases throughout Florida, including motor vehicle wrecks, premises liability, negligent security, bounce house negligence, and medical/dental malpractice.


 


Cory worked as a Certified Public Accountant with Deloitte and Touche before obtaining his Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration from Stetson University of Law. He also serves as Treasurer and co-founder of Are You Safe, a charity that provides free services to domestic violence victims.


 


Cory has lectured at the Plaintiff's Personal Injury Seminar and is a participant on the Fox 13 program "Ask a Lawyer." Baird Law Group is located in Tampa.
