Richard P. Corey is an experienced business strategist and trial attorney with a diverse track record of successfully representing individuals and corporate clients of all sizes. Nicknamed “The Closer,” Richard prides himself on maximizing his client’s desired outcomes in both transactional/business deal negotiations and litigation settings.
Richard received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from the University of Central Florida in 2009. While attending UCF, Richard received high achievement recognition in Business Law and was a finalist in both the UCF Business Plan Competition and Strategic Planning Competition.

Prior to starting law school, Richard worked at a prominent South Florida Record Label where he was given the responsibility of overseeing the marketing and promotional campaigns of several multiplatinum recording artists.

Richard earned his Juris Doctorate from Nova Southeastern University and graduated Cum Laude in May of 2012. He was admitted to the Florida Bar in September of 2012 and incorporated his law practice the very

next day working out of his mother’s living room. While in law school, Richard interned for a prominent entertainment law firm as well as the Office of the State Attorney Homicide Division dealing exclusively with murder cases. He was a board member of the Nova Trial Association, Moot Court Society, the Sports and Entertainment Law Society, and was an advocate for the school’s Trial Competition Team. He is also a member of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

Just three months into his practice, Richard was defense attorney in a jury trial where he obtained a unanimous verdict of not guilty for his client facing felony charges. Thereafter, Richard focused his practice primarily on complex business disputes, deal negotiations, and new business startups. He represents national corporations, restaurant franchises, models, professional athletes, recording artists, music producers, real estate firms, venture capitalists, talent agents, entrepreneurs, and physicians.  Richard has been selected as Florida Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2016, 2017, and 2018, an award given to the top 2.5% of attorneys under the age of 40. Richard has successfully negotiated several major record deals, franchise agreements, commercial leases, mergers and acquisitions, trade secret agreements, endorsement deals and investment contracts for large corporations. His extensive litigation experience includes everything from small claims disputes to multi-million dollar claims against publicly traded companies.

Outside of the courtroom, Richard spends much of his time conducting motivational seminars for children and organizing charity fundraisers for children’s hospitals around the country.

Richard is also a member of the Perish Counsel for Saint Philip’s Antiochian Orthodox Church and has taken an active role in artist management, music and film production, as well as event promotions.
