Cory A. Brandfon

Biography

In 2010, Cory graduated from Washington University in St. Louis. As a South Florida native, Cory returned home to attend the University of Miami School of Law, graduating cum laude. Following his first year of law school, he was privileged to serve as a legal intern for the Honorable Stanford Blake in the Family Court for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in Miami. During his final year of law school, he volunteered for the Children and Youth Law Clinic where he developed and refined skills to help families through life’s most challenging events.

Since his admission to The Florida Bar in 2014, Cory has focused his practice primarily on marital and family law, including dissolution of marriage litigation, collaborative cases, paternity, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, enforcement and modification, and injunctions for protection against domestic violence.
