Corey J. Hebert is a French-speaking Cajun who was born and raised in Bayou Blue, a small community near Houma, Louisiana. Growing up in the bayous of South Louisiana, Mr. Hebert developed a love and appreciation for the coastal region, its people and culture.
Mr. Hebert attended Nicholls State University, graduating in 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Government. While living in Houma, Mr. Hebert enrolled in the Southern University Law Center driving to Baton Rouge to attend the night school while holding a full-time job. Following his first year, he moved to Baton Rouge and attended Southern as a full-time student. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008, and he was admitted to the Louisiana Bar in October of that same year.
Like many from South Louisiana, Mr. Hebert was born into a large family. Living on the extensive waterways of the bayou region, and in the heart of the Louisiana oil and gas industry, the majority of his friends and close relatives work offshore, in shipyards and on the canals that flow through this beautiful state. As a youth, Mr. Hebert spent many days watching the tug boats and barges traversing the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway which passed neared his childhood home. He also witnessed first-hand the numerous injuries suffered by the men and women who made their livings in the Admiralty and Maritime professions which were prevalent in the area. Following his admission to the Louisiana Bar, Mr. Hebert attended Tulane University Law School obtaining a post-graduate Master of Laws degree in Admiralty so that he could assist the offshore workers, whom he respected so much as a child, through the complexities of the Jones Act and General Maritime Law.
Since he has been in practice, Mr. Hebert has time and again successfully taken his clients’ cases from beginning to conclusion. He has worked extensively in many areas of Civil litigation, including motor vehicle accidents, maritime personal injuries, products liability, premises liability, and medical malpractice. Mr. Hebert’s experience fighting for his clients has given him a true understanding of the need for all people to have an advocate to protect their rights and to seek justice in the courts.
