Cory A. Alford began his legal career in Louisiana, focusing primarily on civil law. Mr. Alford started as a staff attorney at a federally designated non-profit, where he led trainings on state and federal law, drafted legislation, and provided ongoing technical assistance on civil and criminal law issues. Witnessing the need for more legal resources, Mr. Alford and his wife were selected to join the Legal Innovators for Tomorrow (LIFT) program and created a law firm. The program aimed to increase access to civil legal help for low-income disaster victims by resolving property issues and homeownership disputes in the wake of Louisiana’s catastrophic flooding in August 2016. Mr. Alford has received several awards for his work helping underserved community members. Born and raised in Houston, Mr. Alford returned home, where he branched out into personal injury litigation and is excited to continue his focus on civil litigation and maritime law.
