Louis Gabriel Corey
Passionate. Experienced. Successful.
There are many attributes that make up a successful attorney, but these are among the top few I specialize in.
Passion: From an early age, I realized the heart-led passion I possessed for helping people. I love what I do and it shows. I am committed to getting my clients results, and I am relentless to that end. I am passionate when it comes to the type of encounter I desire for each of my clients, which is a highly personal and sympathetic one. I meet with you and work with you directly, so you will feel expertly handled and cared for from the first moment.
Experience: I have committed my professional career of over three decades to my craft, and have thus developed an in-depth understanding of the law. As you can see below, I literally wrote the law on medical malpractice legislation. I know the law inside and out, and because of that my clients benefit from the results that can only come from this level of experience.
Success: Numbers speak louder than words oftentimes, and my numbers speak for themselves. I have recovered more than $100 million for my clients across the expanse of cases that fall under personal injury law, and I am adding to that amount every day with each case that I take on. I’m known for the unparalleled level of energy and expertise I bring into the courtroom, and it yields big results for my clients.
Corey Law Firm is built upon the industry’s most sought-after and significant credentials.
Education and credentials are key elements in the foundation of a successful personal injury attorney. And although these may seem intimidating in nature, I can assure your experience with me will not be. I pride myself in offering highly professional representation balanced with a personalized, empathy-focused approach to each client I come alongside.

I am an AV-rated* attorney and I have been selected as a Michigan Super Lawyer** several times over and recently named a DBusiness Top Lawyer in 3 Specialized Practice Areas.
American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) As an experienced trial lawyer, I was invited by a select group of peers to join this exclusive organization comprised of accomplished litigants representing both Plaintiffs & Defendants. ABOTA is dedicated to the virtues of civility, integrity & professionalism.
I wrote the medical malpractice legislation that has been on the books since 1986, and I have successfully litigated cases which have become landmark Michigan Supreme Court decisions, including Champion v. Nationwide Security, Inc. (the leading employment discrimination case) and Prentice v. Yale Manufacturing Co. (a historical products liability case).

For five years I worked for Latham & Watkins, representing plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts across the country, and helping achieve big wins for my clients — including securing an over $800 million victory in a breach of contract case.
The law inspires me for several reasons: I enjoy problem-solving, providing clear-headed analysis, and, most notably, advocating on behalf of my clients. Put simply, I enjoy helping people and I work hard to provide clear solutions to my clients’ problems. I have now taken those skills and that motivation to The Corey Law Firm, where my practice focuses primarily on personal injury law.
I recognize that nobody wants to need an attorney. But when they do, they want one to be efficient, meticulous, and caring. I am committed to these practices, both as a lawyer and as a human being, and I will treat your case like it is my own.

While attending Northwestern University School of Law, won first place at the Minor Moot Court Competition (judged by, among others, now United States Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh).
I am a litigator. Specifically, I am a plaintiff’s personal injury attorney with five years of trial experience at the top-ranked Chicago law firm, Cogan & Power, P.C. In my first two years of practice, I was identified as a “2017 Emerging Lawyer” by my peers — a distinction received by less than 2% of all licensed attorneys.
While at Cogan & Power, I helped take over 15 personal injury cases to trial, earning a total of $27 million in verdicts. In my early career, I’ve written briefs and argued motions and pleadings in various courts in the state of Illinois. Some of my best work has come in the form of automobile and trucking accident cases as well as cases regarding medical and dental malpractice.
In these spaces, I have looked after my clients first. As your attorney, I promise to keep your best interests at the center of my work, and argue effectively on your behalf.
