About the Speaker

Corey Carter of Carter Law Firm
Corey Carter became an attorney in 2010. He has started his career representing debtors in bankruptcy court. Corey then worked with small business and assisting them with their corporate and small business needs. However, he missed the courtroom. After diligent study and participation in a trial program offered by the local bar association, Corey conducted his first trial. From that point forward, Corey endeavored to represent clients at trial. Corey zealously represents his clients in seeking justice. He has a passion for telling your story to the jury and making the most of your day in court.

Corey is admitted to practice in all courts of the State of California, the United States District Court for the Central District of California, and the United States Tax Court.

Corey has been recognized for his Pro Bono participation in the United States Bankruptcy Court Central District of California Honor Roll of Pro Bono Volunteers from 2011 to 2018. He served on the Executive Committee of the Barristers section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association from 2014 to 2018, and served as secretary during the 2016-2017 term.

These workshops are made possible, in part, from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles Department of Arts and Culture; The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs; and the California Community Foundation.  Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
