Great Attorney!
Cory Wall was very professional and made me feel comfortable in a very upsetting process. He answered every question so that I understood every part of the process completely.

Cory is an honorable attorney and an honorable human
I went through the worst experience of my life and Cory Wall was there every step of the way. He helped me through a terribly vicious and excruciating divorce to the extent I will not discuss here, but involved criminal courts, family courts, lawsuits, evaluators, trial and so much more. It would be safe to that Cory is an honorable attorney and an honorable human. Over several years time we corresponded through thousands (no exaggeration) of emails, dozens of hearings and long nights where we both emailed back and forth to get the job done to prep for court. He was respectful and sensitive to the demeaning and dehumanizing situation I was in for the divorce. He was strategic, he was kind where I needed to see humanity and he was striking in court when I needed him to be. Thank you Cory for putting up with my terrible case. Thank you Cory for being the guiding light when I needed one. Thank you for standing up for what was right. Thank you for having so much integrity. I will continue to refer people to your services.

Divorce
Cory was very thorough and stayed very consistent through my divorce. We had to go to 4 days of court and he really shined and took control in the courtroom through his preparedness. Didn't miss a thing. With my ex being very uncooperative and wanting the moon Cory was able to navigate the case to a fair result. His fees were very fair and his ability was worth every dime!

Worth every penny
Cory did an amazing job preparing me and my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone. My case was regarding a divorce including custody and child support.

Best fathers rights attorney in Utah
I recommend Cory to every father I know, who has the unfortunate experience of battling for fair time with their kids. He guides me every step of the way. He informs me of my rights as a dad under state law, and helps me to understand those rights. He and all of his staff, are professional, courteous, and non-judgemental. He keeps me in the loop about legal procedure, options along the way, and his recommendation about how to proceed. I truly feel as though we work as a team. His knowledge of family law is second to none. He performs flawless in the office and the courtroom. Communication is key, and when Cory is unable to communicate, I hear from his staff to let me know what they need, and how I can help. He will be my attorney for as long as he practices law in my state!

I Strongly Recommend Cory Wall
I had another attorney helping me with my case but just wasn't happy with how things were going. I was seriously afraid I wouldn't be able to get custody of my kids because of lies my spouse was telling about me. I hired Cory and he was able to get the truth out and the court awarded me full legal and physical custody of my children. He was also able to help me get a very fair and reasonable amount of alimony which has really helped me in starting my life over again. Cory is very knowledgeable and was able to explain the whole process in ways that I could understand. He really helped me replace fear with knowledge which was a huge comfort to me. He is very good in court and is able to present his arguments in a way that helped the court understand our points. I highly recommend Cory.

Cory Wall is an Amazing Attorney
I hired Cory to help me with a very difficult custody case and he was able to get me the custody of my children and help us work out a resolution of many contested issues in my case. He is very good in court and presented my case extremely well. I would highly recommend Cory to anyone and in fact I have already referred two close friends who he is now helping with their cases.
