Corinne “Cory” Hodak joined the trial attorney team at Coker Law and will represent patients who are injured because of medical negligence.
Hodak began practicing law more than 30 years after her first career as a registered nurse.
“We have attorneys who used to work for insurance companies before joining our firm to work on behalf of the injured,” Fraz Ahmed, Coker Law shareholder and Jacksonville Bar Association president, said in a news release.
“They bring a knowledge and insight that greatly benefits our clients. Corey brings an added dimension given her background as a registered nurse specializing in intensive care,” he said.
Hodak received her degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 1989.
She serves on the University of North Florida Brooks College of Health Advisory Committee and is a UNF Foundation board member.
Hodak is immediate past president of the Jacksonville Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates and the current national ABOTA secretary.
She was named Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Jacksonville Chapter of ABOTA and received the Spirit of Giving Award from the Jacksonville Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.
Coker Law is a personal injury trial law firm in Jacksonville with 20 attorneys, including nine Florida Bar board certified civil trial lawyers.
