Brent Coon & Associates is proud to announce that the firm's founder, Brent Coon, has been awarded a seat on the Environmental Trial Lawyers Association Board of Governors. The Board of Governors, which is comprised of several of the country's most esteemed environmental plaintiff's lawyers, plays a key role in determining the association's agenda for the upcoming year. The goal is to enable members to draw upon the association's strong training, educational and networking resources so they may have benefits that were either unavailable or difficult to find on their own.
"It's quite an honor to be chosen to serve on the Board of Governors along side some of the nation's most respected attorneys and law firms such as The Cochran Firm, The Romano Law Group, Masry & Vititoe and several others," said Coon.
Mr. Coon rose to prominence as the lead attorney in the litigation stemming from the Texas City plant explosion in 2005. In 2007, he was awarded "Lawyer of the Year" for his efforts. Mr. Coon is now playing a lead role in the Gulf Coast oil spill litigation.
