Attorney Profile

Corey is a Partner with Levy Konigsberg, LLP, where he manages various areas of the firm’s complex litigation practice, including the following types of cases: Lead Poisoning, Qui Tam, Medical Malpractice, Construction Injuries and Child Advocacy.

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 injured through medical malpractice and construction injuries. 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 complex negligence, civil rights and product liability in Atlanta, GA, with an emphasis on cases involving children.

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 is an innovator in national lead poisoning cases. He is currently representing more than 2000 children (on an individual, case-by-case basis) who were lead poisoned in Flint, Michigan, from the consumption of water from the Flint River.

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. Eight months later, on July 27, 2017, Corey was appointed “Liaison Counsel” in the United States District Court, Eastern District of Michigan, for all individual personal injury and property damage cases pending before the Court arising out of the crisis.

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.
