Cory is a Clark County, Washington native. Her interest in the legal field began as a teenager when she started working as a receptionist in her father’s law firm. From there, she branched out and pursued paralegal education and accepted a position with a sole practitioner who primarily focused on juvenile criminal defense and civil collections, where she remained for over 20 years. After dedicating her time to the behind-the-scenes legal work, she decided to take the plunge and become an attorney. She completed her hands on legal education through the Washington State Bar Rule 6 Law Clerk program. In 2018 she started handling juvenile and civil cases as a Rule 9 Legal Intern and sat for the bar exam in the summer of 2020. She has handled a wide variety of juvenile cases ranging from probation violations to serious felonies. A large portion of Cory’s area of practice is also centered around civil collections.
Since becoming a licensed attorney, she has rejoined her Dad in his practice and continues to pursue her passion of advocating for and defending juveniles who have been accused of crimes.
Outside of the business arena, Cory enjoys spending time with her teenagers, husband and dogs. She is a sucker for family game nights. She also enjoys participating in sports whenever the opportunity arises, such as softball, volleyball, bowling and golf and occasionally gives into her guilty pleasure of singing karaoke.
