Cory L. Loudenslager

- Partner -
After the loss of her only sister in the tragedy of TWA Flight 800 in 1996, Cory began her law career practicing airplane crash litigation, including the representation of many victims of September 11, 2001. She came to Hamberger & Weiss LLP in 2006 and practiced all areas of Workers’ Compensation Law, including appellate work in the area of apportionment. 

In 2012, Cory took a leave from the practice of law to volunteer with the United States Peace Corps. She served nearly three years in Ghana, West Africa in the areas of agricultural income-generation, health and education. She was assigned to a remote village near the border with Burkina-Faso where she enjoyed a simple life without electricity or running water. If Cory is not at home in Lewiston walking her dog, she is likely exploring some remote corner of the Earth or driving around in her Airstream Nest camper. 

Cory accomplished reaching all 7 continents in the winter of 2023 when she made landfall in Antarctica and was on an expedition ship that was able to travel the farthest south that season, reaching below the Antarctic Circle! She has successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, completed a marathon on the Great Wall of China, enjoyed a hiking trek to various peaks throughout Patagonia, explored the east coast of Australia and hiked through the Outback. She also traveled throughout the Middle East following her Peace Corps service. More recently, she has also taken up volunteering while on vacation: at elephant sanctuaries and a sea turtle refuge in Thailand and at the 2020 – 2022 Alaska Iditarod dog sled races; she also chaperoned groups of high school students from across the US who fundraised through the buildOn non-profit organization to build a school in a remote village of the Guatemalan Highlands in 2022 where she and the students broke ground for and built the school’s foundation. 

Cory has partnered with the Erie County Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project for pro bono representation of an Afghan asylum seeker who was fighting with the remaining US military presence when all were evacuated from his homeland when the Afghanistan government fell in August 2021. Cory is pleased to announce that her Afghani client has been granted asylum in the Fall of 2023 and that she is now working on bringing the rest of his family safely to the USA!
