Cory Itkin has garnered a reputation for being one of the country's most aggressive lawyers. Not only has he won high-value verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients in more than two dozen states, but he has served as counsel in high profile cases like that of the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion. In fact, some of Cory's best work has been in cases that posed the most difficult challenges.

He has won million-dollar verdicts in numerous cases where the defendant made no effort to settle, and he has secured record-setting verdicts in highly disputed liability cases. In recent years, he even made history when he won one of the largest Texas verdicts in a helicopter accident case. Through his approach of diligent preparation, Cory had won verdicts and settlements all over the country.

Before taking up a career in law, Cory attended college at the University of Texas. He then went on to earn his law degree from the University of Houston, from which he graduated cum laude in the top 10% of his class. While in law school, he was recognized with a number of honors, including induction to the Order of the Barons.

Since becoming a lawyer, Cory has continued to impress. Apart from being honored as one of the "Top 100 Trial Lawyers" in Texas by the American Trial Lawyers Association, he has been selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ Edition from 2010 to 2017. In addition, he was selected for The Best Lawyers in America® for Admiralty and Maritime Law from 2016 to 2018.

"It’s understandable that you are going to have a lot of questions—a lot of concerns. Part of my job is to help answer those questions and guide you through the process. It’s a responsibility I take seriously."
