A few of the personal injury claims that he has represented for Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys have been serious spinal injuries, traumatic head injuries, fractures, torn ligaments, back injuries and more.

Mr. Corzo is actively involved in the community and is a member of the Louisiana Association for Justice, a preeminent organization created to promote justice for the workplace, seek fairness in the courts for the the aggrieved and injured, and uphold honor and dignity of the civil justice system and the legal profession.
