I’m Corey Pollard, the managing partner of Jenkins Block & Associates‘ Richmond office.
Litigation is often complicated. But my job is simple: To provide high-quality legal representation and results when you are injured at work, hurt in an automobile accident, or physically or mentally disabled.
Usually, a good result is possible through settlement or mediation if your case is prepared and presented correctly. But sometimes a trial is necessary. No matter what it takes, I can help you and your family get the best result possible – as quickly and efficiently as possible.
While it’s easy – and necessary – to get bogged down in the law’s nuances, I never forget that my goal is to solve your problems and to put you in the best position possible to move forward with your life.
If you have a lot at stake – tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, the need for surgery and future healthcare, or uncertainty about how you will return to work and take care of yourself and your family – email me at email@example.com or call me at (804) 251-1620 or (757) 810-5614.
I’ve helped more than one thousand injured workers and accident victims get the money they need to get their life back. And I want to get to work for you.
I was born and raised in Newport News, Virginia, where I grew up in a construction family. My father and brother still own a welding company.
I graduated from Menchville High School, where I was a Virginia High School League (VHSL) State Champion in Swimming.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree with Honors from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. While in college, I joined the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity.
Slowly moving up Interstate-64, I obtained my Juris Doctorate (J.D.) with Honors from the University of Richmond School of Law. While in law school, I was a member of the Richmond Journal of Law of and the Public Interest and the Client Counseling and Negotiation Board.
Before joining Jenkins Block & Associates, I worked for an insurance defense firm. In that role, I gained experience and training about the tactics used by some of the country’s largest employers and insurance carriers. Now I use that knowledge to help those who have suffered injuries at work or in a motor vehicle collision get every dollar they deserve.
Often, a case’s outcome affects not only my client but also their spouse and children.
I get it. Family is important.
My wife, Leigh, is a Human Resources Manager who provides “real world” advice and insight on employment and labor law matters.
We have two children – Knox and Rivers – and a 5-pound Pomeranian dog named Simba that keeps us busy. We are members of Bon Air Baptist Church.
In my spare time, I hang out with family and friends, go to the beach, and play pickup basketball, golf, and poker. When I’m in the mood for punishment, I watch my favorite football team, the Washington Redskins.
My Practice Areas

Sometimes the insurance company requests review after you win at trial or the workers comp hearing, and you must resist the appeal and persuade the court through oral argument and briefs. When this happens, the civil court or the Workers Compensation Commission may enter a published opinion.
Below are some of the published cases I’ve handled:
Harvey v. Queeney Enterprises, Inc.
Harris v. Ross Stores, Inc.
Ryder v. New Bell Truck Lines Inc.
Sullivan v. New Ravenna, Inc.

Not only will I present your case at trial, but I’ll also help you protect your victory on appeal if necessary.
