Cory J. Briggs, Attorney

Cory Briggs began practicing law in 1995 with Mundell, Odlum & Haws in San Bernardino, California, where he primarily litigated commercial and employment-related disputes. In 1998, he moved to Washington, D.C., and added environmental law and regulatory compliance to his practice while pursuing graduate degrees and teaching at The George Washington University Law School and the University of Maryland. Cory returned to Southern California in June 2002, and founded Briggs Law Corporation. With California offices in San Diego and Upland, his practice now balances small/family-owned business law with public-interest and government-accountability litigation.

Cory’s two favorite pastimes are scuba diving and traveling to remote places around the world (hopefully to scuba dive).
