About Brent Coon and Associates

Brent Coon Law FirmBrent Coon & Associates was founded in 2001. Today, with offices spanning the country, it is one of the largest trial law firms in the nation and the epitome of the 21st century law practice. Brent Coon & Associates employs a team of aggressive litigators, with solid experience in individual and complex multi-party, occupational/environmental, health and personal injury cases.

Brent Coon & Associates prides itself on being a public policy law firm. “Our first and foremost responsibility is to our clients and recovering the best possible settlement or verdict on their individual cases,” says BCA founder Brent Coon. “But I’ve always felt that our firm has a responsibility to the public as well. Sometimes it’s not enough to simply get a satisfactory result for your client. We also strive to use our position to influence meaningful change in public policy and industry-specific safety standards to help make our country a safer place for our citizens to live and work.”

Brent Coon Eva Rowe BP ExplosionThe case that best exemplifies the resolve of Brent Coon & Associates was Rowe vs. BP Amoco Chemical Company, BP North America. Brent Coon & Associates represented Eva Rowe, a young woman who lost both of her parents in the 2005 plant explosion at the BP Texas City refinery. The explosion left 15 workers deceased and injured hundreds of others. On November 9, 2006, Coon reached an unprecedented settlement that included a “first ever” agreement to release seven million pages of sealed corporate documents that would have been presented during trial. Mr. Coon went on to write and introduce to the Texas State Legislature the “Remember The 15” Bill, which would have provided increased safety regulations and standards within the petrochemical industry. “Our job in this case was not only justice for our client, but to make sure this kind of tragedy NEVER happens again”. The settlement also mandated at least $32 million in charitable donations.

Brent Coon & Associates has great respect and admiration for the working people that compose the backbone of our country. Our mission is to help ensure their rights are protected and their well-being respected. Since the firm’s inception, standing hand in hand with labor unions has been a practice in which we take great pride. Brent Coon & Associates currently serves as District Counsel for the United Steelworkers (USW) District 13, which covers Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. We also serve as General Counsel to the Helicopter Pilots Union, a member of the OPEIU.

Brent Coon BP Lawyer“Our efforts in fighting the just cause have been recognized by both the national and international media, as well as our peers.” says Mr. Coon. “Our alliances include both the well known and those lesser known who share our goal of absolute justice for all citizens of the world. We are proud of our international reputation of standing shoulder to shoulder with those who are too frightened, confused and/or too small to fight alone. We will use all of the firm’s resources, legal, marketing and public relations talent to stand up and fight for those who cannot fight alone.”
