Becoming a plaintiffs’ attorney is a rarity for a former Republican judge that even Justice Medina recognizes. “While it’s unusual for someone in my position to join a plaintiffs’ firm, my first and foremost desire is to continue serving Texans. Having the opportunity to work for a law firm that focuses on public policy as passionately and effectively as BCA does is the most productive way for me to help further causes I believe in.”, said Justice Medina.

Raised in Hitchcock, Texas, Justice Medina comes from a blue collar background. It is these humble beginnings that instilled a sense of community and a desire to help working class Texans through the justice system.

After graduating from the South Texas College of Law in 1980, Justice Medina was hired by Cooper Industries as Litigation Counsel where he was responsible for a docket that included environmental, product liability, toxic tort, real estate, insurance coverage and commercial litigation.

Justice David Medina Joins Brent Coon & AssociatesIn 1996, Governor George W. Bush appointed David to the 157th State District Court located in Harris County. Justice Medina served as judge for four years before rejoining Cooper in 2000 as its Associate General Litigation Counsel where he supervised all aspects of complex litigation and product-safety matters throughout the world.

In January 2004, Judge Medina returned to public service when he was appointed by Governor Rick Perry to serve as General Counsel to the Governor. In November of that year, Governor Perry appointed Justice Medina to the Texas Supreme Court, where he served for eight years before joining BCA in January 2013.

Founder Brent Coon said, “We’re really excited to have Justice Medina as a part of our organization. With his deep knowledge of corporate counsel strategy, the experience and expertise that he brings to the table will be a huge asset to helping our firm continue to deliver on its mission to stand up for the rights of the labor while simultaneously branching out into some of the corporate areas of legal practice.”
