"Part of my job is to help answer your questions and guide you throughout the entire process. It’s a responsibility that I take seriously. It’s a responsibility all of our lawyers take seriously."


Attorney Cory Itkin is an aggressive trial attorney who has represented clients in more than two dozen states in cases that range from offshore injuries to truck accidents to plant explosions. When clients face high-stakes situations, Cory is proud to be the attorney they trust. When large companies try to take advantage of regular people, Cory fights to level the playing field. He has even been involved in high-profile litigation, such as representing workers injured in the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion.

Cory firmly believes that some of his best work has been when facing the most significant challenges. His commitment to making a difference for clients has led to him securing jury verdicts worth more than $1 million on five occasions where the defendant made no settlement offer. He also recovered several seven- and eight-figure settlements the night before trial. Cory is an aggressive negotiator but an even more fierce litigator. Because of this, the other side often realizes that it’s in its best interest to be fair so they won’t have to face Cory during a trial.

Although he is in Houston, Cory has not limited his practice to Texas. He has achieved over 50 settlements and verdicts worth more than $1 million nationwide.

Attorney Cory Itkin was proud to attend the University of Texas to receive his undergraduate degree. While at UT Austin, he was involved in campus life, serving as a representative on the Student Government and as an officer in the Silver Spurs–a student-run organization dedicated to caring for Bevo, the school’s longhorn mascot. When he graduated, he enrolled in the University of Houston Law Center. There, he graduated cum laude with several distinctions under his belt, such as the Order of the Barons.

Cory has achieved several honors for his excellent work in the legal field. For example, he has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America® for Admiralty and Maritime Law, by Lawdragon as one of the 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers, by the American Trial Lawyers Association as one of the “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” in Texas. He has also been selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ Edition from 2010 to 2019 and the Super Lawyers® Up-and-Coming 100 list.
