Corey is a Partner with Levy Konigsberg, LLP, where he manages the firm’s Lead Poisoning, Medical Malpractice and Child Advocacy department. Corey represents individuals who have been catastrophically injured, with an emphasis on children that have suffered brain damage from lead poisoning. He also represents people that have been devastatingly hurt through medical malpractice. Corey has recovered tens of millions of dollars for his clients in verdicts and settlements and has garnered a national reputation for his work on lead poisoning cases. Prior to joining LK, Corey practiced extensively in the areas of general negligence, civil rights, product liability, and criminal law in Atlanta, GA, with an emphasis on cases involving children.
On November 15, 2016, Corey was appointed “Lead Counsel” for all plaintiffs maintaining claims in the Circuit Court of Genesee County for personal injuries and property damage sustained as a result of the Flint Water Crisis.
Corey is an innovator in national lead poisoning cases. He is currently representing children (on an individual, case-by-case basis) who were lead poisoned in Flint, Michigan, from the consumption of water from the Flint River.
Corey regularly serves as “first chair”/lead trial attorney in complex personal injury trials.
In addition to his trial work, Corey has written, argued, and won important legal rulings in New York State related to lead exposure and medical malpractice.
Corey has spent half his life in New York and half his life in Georgia, having grown up in Mount Sinai, New York, and then attending the University of Georgia for his undergraduate degree in history and his juris doctorate. Corey practiced law in Atlanta for twelve years before coming “home” to New York in 2014, where he continues to fight for individuals, including children, who don’t have an adequate voice.
Corey traveled the world for one year after graduating from high school, including visits to concentration camps in Poland, where he was moved by the stories of the children that perished during the Holocaust. Since then, Corey has tried to live his life in a way that honors those who died, which permeates his law practice today.
