In 1984, attorneys Ernest Cory and Leila Watson began practicing law together. In 1995, they founded a law firm in Birmingham, Alabama, with a simple goal – to help people injured by wrongful conduct.
They built their practice to be a safe harbor for those who need help, and did what many lawyers refused to do – take on powerful corporate interests who place profits before people.
They knew they would be fighting big insurance companies. They knew they would be going up against global corporations. They knew it wouldn’t be easy.
But they didn’t back down. They took them on and they won. Over and over again.
As a result of this perseverance, our firm has won over 25,000 cases across the country; securing a total of $3 Billion in groundbreaking multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients, as well as helping improve the safety of products for consumers worldwide.
A few of these notable verdicts and settlements include:
- $670 Million Toxic Chemical C-8 Cancer Verdict
- $50 Million Verdict Against DuPont in PFOA Cancer Case
- $25 Million Verdict Against Nissan in Auto Defect Product Liability Case
- $10 Million Verdict in Hit-and-Run Wrongful Death Case
- $9 Million Verdict in Lee County, AL Medical Malpractice Case
These wins represent so much more than just a dollar amount. They represent the wellbeing of our clients, which is something we take deep pride in protecting.
As one of only a handful of U.S. law firms to reach this milestone, Cory Watson is proud to have cultivated a national reputation for serving injury victims across the country in cases involving:
- Motor vehicle wrecks
- Dangerous drugs
- Medical malpractice
- Defective medical devices
- Asbestos and mesothelioma
- Class action lawsuits
- Product liability
- Environmental injury
- Wrongful death
- Personal injury
Our firm’s case success is largely based on our commitment to providing the most determined, compassionate representation. We strive to provide the highest level of service and a renewed sense of hope to our clients because we genuinely care about each and every one of them and their families.
This is possible because of the hard work of the hundreds of dedicated employees, attorneys, and staff who, over the last 25 years, have helped Cory Watson evolve into the firm it is today. Cory Watson has grown beyond the state of Alabama into Memphis and Nashville with the enduring goal of fighting for the justice that our clients deserve.
