My name is Corey Walker and I have been representing the people of Iowa against insurance companies and big corporations since 1997.  At age 14, I began working for my grandfather in the concrete construction business during the summer school break.  The work was hard, hot, and long, but provided me with framework for my character.  After I graduated from high school, my mother purchased an appliance store and I began working on weekends and during the summer delivering refrigerators, washers, dryers and other heavy equipment.  I would also help my grandfather when he needed extra help on job sites.  After my first year of law school in 1995, I began working at Walker & Billingsley.  The years of working hard physical labor allows me to better understand my clients, many of whom have similar physical work backgrounds.   

 

My practice consists of car accidents, work injuries and other personal injury accidents.  If you want a divorce or have a traffic ticket, I won’t handle your case, but I can refer you to another attorney at our office that will.  I worked my way through college and then through law school and am dedicated to helping Injured Iowans.  With hard work and personal attention I help Level the Field between Injured Iowans and Insurance CompaniesTM 

 

I have represented hundreds of Iowans injured in car accidents, work injuries and other personal injury accidents and have seen too many clients make mistakes before they had the “right” information resulting in them losing thousands of dollars.  I offer a Free comprehensive Iowa Injury Guide because I am committed to helping injured Iowans and have seen too many clients make mistakes before they had the “right” information resulting in them losing thousands of dollars. Finally, you can learn about Iowa injury accidents in the comfort of your own home with no risk or obligation so Call Now, ext. 512 (24 Hour message) or go to to learn how to avoid a costly mistake.

Grateful for my friends who referred me to Corey Walker after a distracted driver crossed into my lane and hit us head on
I hired Corey Walker after a terrible head on collision. The driver was distracted and crossed into our lane. The event was traumatic to say the least. From the first phone call, Corey, was kind, caring and confident. He clearly explained what I could expect from him and this process. Corey was available to answer my questions and communicated with me consistently. His responses were prompt which provided relief during this difficult time. He successfully negotiated drastically lower health insurance payment amount in my case, which left much more in the settlement. The thoughtful and competent work from Corey and his team provided stability in an unstable situation. Between healing, the road to recovery, and my employment, and everything; Corey has been a strong, steady, consistent lighthouse guiding me through this process to reach the shore. Thankful his skill, kindness and expertise through a tumultuous storm. I highly recommend Corey Walker for your personal injury/car accident legal concerns.

Review
Saw his reviews and contacted him re: our case. Was timely in setting up an appointment. Listened well. Immediately went to work contacting our Doctors and the other party. When we went to meet with him again, he laid out his plan and we agreed to it. Always kept us informed and up to date. He contacted whoever he needed to in order to keep our case moving forward and in a timely manner. His staff was helpful and knowledgeable.

Excellent Service
We never had to worry about how our accident was handled once we found Corey. I don't know what we would have done without his expertise and experience as an attorney. He took care of all our needs which lifted an unimaginable burden for us. Especially since I was also dealing with Stage 3 cancer at the time of the accident. He was so incredibly kind and understanding of our needs. We both felt we were in capable hands from start to finish. He always explained in detail everything about our case and never hesitated to reach out when we had questions. I'd give Corey Walker 10 stars here if I could!! Thank you for everything you've done for us!!

A worker's compensation lawsuit.
Corey and his entire team did a fantastic job representing me against my employers Insurance company. He was very fair and up front with me right from the very beginning and walked me through all aspects of the case. Corey kept me up to date and always included me in any correspondence that he had with the Insurance Co. attorneys. When we did finally settle the lawsuit through mediation, the outcome was fair and just. I could not have done near as well without Corey by my side. I feel that his knowledge and experience was exceptional, and this got me the best settlement outcome I could have gotten. I want to Thank Corey and his team for a pleasurable experience and everything you did for me.

Experienced, Knowledgeable and Compassionate Attorney
I retained Corey Walker to represent me due to a serious work related injury that I received. I can't say enough good things about Corey. Corey is very experienced and knowledgeable in the area of workers compensation. When I first sat down with Corey, he explained to me in detail what would would happen as my case went through the system. Everything happened just as Corey explained. Corey isn't the type of attorney that will tell his clients what they want to hear, he will tell them the honest truth and be up front with them. I have worked with many attorneys throughout my career and I would have to say that Corey is one of a kind. During my injury, Corey would go out of his way to call me, just to see how I was doing and if he could be of any help. I also noticed that when I would call Corey, I could hear him typing in the background. He listens to what you say and documents your conversation, so he knows every detail of your case. Corey has written many books on different injury topic areas, that he will send you free of charge upon request. From my own experience and if I could offer one piece of advice to anyone who has been injured at work, call Corey Walker first and then read his book. Use this book to help guide you through the process. Don't speak to the insurance adjusters, supervisors, coworkers, etc., until you speak to Corey first, as you will soon learn that these people are not your friends when you become injured. You will feel completely alone and helpless, but you won't be. You will have Corey Walker on your side.
