After graduating from law school and earning admission to the Louisiana State Bar in 2010, Cory gained extensive experience litigating insurance disputes from both a defense and coverage perspective.

He has assisted his clients in obtaining many favorable outcomes, both in the context of alternative dispute resolution and at trial, including in multi-million dollar personal injury and general casualty claims.
Cory joined Perrier & Lacoste in 2017, and he now serves corporate and insurance clients in litigating matters involving transportation, wrongful death, personal injury, products liability, property damage, commercial litigation, and insurance coverage and bad faith. He is licensed and admitted to practice in all Louisiana state and federal courts, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Cory is also admitted to practice in the Southern District of Texas. He is a member of several legal associations, including the New Orleans Bar Association, Louisiana State Bar Association, Federal Bar Association, New Orleans Association of Defense Counsel, and the Louisiana Association of Defense Counsel. Cory has also been selected to the Louisiana Super Lawyers Rising Stars List for 2019 and 2020.
