Review Cory Gourley
  • Restored my faith in lawyers

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Tom

    My attorney here in Texas referred me to Cory Gourley to represent me for an accident occurring several years ago while I was working in Iowa. From the beginning, I found him to be professional, personable, and punctual. He does what he says he will do when he says he will do it, always in a professional manner. After 45 years of dealing with both plaintiff and defense attorneys as a casualty insurance adjuster, I had become somewhat disenchanted with the whole legal process prior to Mr. Gourley completely restoring my faith in the system. I had the opportunity to meet him when my wife and I had to travel to Iowa for depositions and my fact-to-face meeting only increased my admiration for him. Great guy! Super lawyer!

    This was my first experience using an attorney and I'm pleased that I was recommended to Mr. Gourley. He is very knowledgeable in his area, but not hesitant to consult other experts for information that will make his case stronger. His best trait is he listens to his client and is open-minded about all options. He walks through the case with his client as if he is trying the case on the spot. He put me at ease during a very difficult and emotional time. He doesn't waiver or waffle on making decisions that affect his client. He puts his client before ego and has the best interest of his client at all times. This gave me the confidence to stick with my case and not give up. I would highly recommend Cory and any of the team of lawyers or support people from this firm.

    Cory was my lawyer a few years back, now I might be needing him again and if I do I will go for it!... He handled my custody battle and he was always very forward, He will not let the clients emotion (or lack of control of) get the best of the case, he knows what he is doing, and he helps the client understand that "is not about what you want is about what the law says" , I am a female, 2 kids, and will hired him any time! Custody cases can be very emotional, but Cory keeps it together even when dealing with bullies or dramatic situations (clients or not clients!)....I found it very funny how someone will accuse him of being a "bully" or "sweet talking them" ...we are all adults here right? ...this guy is awesome go for it!

    My case was a tough, post-divorce custody modification. Hard as it gets and Cory knocked it out of the park. His advice was dead on. I had many concerns along the way in a two year long court process. When things didn't go like we expected or wanted, he always had a plan B, even a plan C. He is worth every penny I spent. I heard from him when he knew I needed to instead of wasting our time and money discussing unnecessary matters. He did everything in his power to minimize my costs and still have a strong case. I would recommend him to a man or a woman for representation. I know from experience his concern is his client and the best interests of the children involved. When I felt things were not moving fast enough and I was frustrated or I wanted to go for the jugular, he always took the time to explain the process and calm me down sometimes more than once. He always left the actions we took in court up to me, never pushed me to do it his way. He laid out options based on his knowledge and experience and let me make the final choice. His law firm and his secretary Melissa worked hard to win my case, I am forever grateful. He made an impression on everyone that I introduced him to. Divorce and custody modification is emotionally tough and expensive. If you want the best, you need to call Gourley, Rehkemper and Lindhom, Ask for Cory or Melissa.

    In my personal opinion - He's great defending dads but don't ever use him if you're a female! His lack of effort is concerning. He rarely called me back when I called the office. He never kept me informed on much of anything. I feel he bullied me and sweet talked me into doing something I wasn't comfortable with. He's not willing to put forth effort in mediation and half way through he's suggesting you give up things you've always had. I don't feel he's worth $325 a hour. Not even close. He tried to tell me at the end we won - less time with your kid then you had before. Sounds like a loss to me.

    Cory helped me through a difficult time and process. He and his staff were genuine and respectful. I was presented with options and provided with facts regarding the law during my divorce. His knowledge of the law was impressive which led to an amenable result for my children and me. I was grateful for the legal services I received from Cory and his team.

  • One of the best attorneys in Iowa

    I have been working with Mr. Gourley for the past 10 years on everything from starting a business to defending both my business and personal interests. Although I don't think anybody "likes" to have to call an attorney, when I contact Cory, I know he will take care of what needs taken care of. It's reassuring to know that my attorney isn't intimidated by a threatening letter from the other side...even if I am. I have sent friends and family to Cory for representation for several divorces, personal injury accidents and large business law matters. I haven't ever heard a negative report from anyone I refer on...which is why I continue to send folks his way. If you ever find yourself in a position where you need legal representation, I highly suggest that you contact Cory Gourley. If he can't help you, he will know who can and will get you pointed in the right direction...I speak from experience.

    He did "absolutely" nothing for me and charged me $2000 dollars. Don't go with him, find someone else!
