Brent Coon Named As Texas Super Lawyer for 2015

Brent Coon & Associates is proud to announce that the firm’s founder, Brent Coon, has been named as a 2015 Texas SuperLawyer. This is the eighth consecutive year Mr. Coon has been bestowed with the honor. The selection process for SuperLawyers is entirely peer nominated and reviewed. After reviewing and scrutinizing the nominees, a blue ribbon panel selects those attorneys most worthy of receiving the SuperLawyer designation. Each year, the SuperLawyer honor is designated for no more than five percent of the state’s attorneys.

Brent Coon served as Lead Counsel in the litigation stemming from the 2005 refinery explosion at the BP plant in Texas City, TX. The explosion killed 15 workers and injured hundreds more. Coon reached a settlement with BP that forced the company to make public the seven million documents his firm had uncovered, fund over $40 million dollars to various charities, organizations and educational institutions that focus on improving process safety within the petrochemical industry, and ultimately a plea of 15 counts of felony manslaughter with the Department of Justice. The firm has successfully handled thousands of injury and occupational injury cases in Louisiana and elsewhere and presently represents over 10,000 victims of the BP oil spill in massive federal litigation involving multiple parties. Coon and firm clients have routinely made appearances in Congressional and legislative affairs and hearings and appeared hundreds of times with interviews of legal import to national and international radio, television and press corps.

Earlier this year, Mr. Coon was honored by Best Lawyers as one of the Best Lawyers in America for 2015.

Brent Coon & Associates was founded in 2001. Today, with multiple satellite offices around the country and hundreds of associated firms in various practice areas, it is one of the most recognized trial law firms in the nation and the epitome of the 21st century law practice. Brent Coon & Associates employs a full complement of aggressive litigators with solid experience in individual and complex multi-party, occupational/environmental, health and personal injury cases.
