JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 4, 2022 – Former ICU nurse-turned-attorney joins Coker Law to lead the firm’s medical malpractice team. Coker Law is proud to announce that Attorney Corinne “Cory” Hodak is now part of the firm’s experienced trial attorney team and will represent patients who are injured because of medical negligence. “We have attorneys who used to work for insurance companies before joining our firm to work on behalf of the injured, and they bring a knowledge and insight that greatly benefits our clients,” said Fraz Ahmed, Coker Law shareholder. “We are excited to have Cory join the firm. She brings an added dimension given her background as a registered nurse specializing in intensive care.”
Hodak has practiced law for more than 30 years, and fights as fiercely for her legal clients as she did for her medical patients. “Coker Law is well-recognized for their excellent trial attorneys, who tirelessly work to obtain justice for their clients,” said Hodak. “I am excited to be joining this exceptional team.”
