Brent Frederick


After graduating from the University of Louisiana in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and minors in Biology and Chemistry, Brent went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from Tulane Law School, with honors, in 1997.  While at Tulane, Brent was a member of the Moot Court Board, and he earned special recognition as the best oralist in the preliminary rounds of a national appellate competition. He delayed the start of his legal career because he enlisted in the Louisiana Army National Guard in 1989 after completing his first year of college. The very next year Brent’s Guard Unit received active-duty orders to support the war effort in Operation Desert Storm. During his time with the 256th Mechanized Infantry Brigade, Brent served as a rifleman, driver and gunner for the company commander’s Bradley Fighting Vehicle.


Over his career Brent has developed a particular interest and specialty in complex medical matters. Whether it be establishing that a common playground incident caused pediatric hip necrosis or that an improper administration of drugs during dialysis caused a fatal brain bleed, Brent routinely works closely with experts from all fields of study.  Brent has litigated cases in over twenty-five states, usually involving issues of serious personal injury stemming from medical malpractice, general negligence, products liability, vehicular collisions, construction defects and commercial contractual disputes. As lead trial counsel, Brent has obtained multiple jury trial verdicts of over $5 million with his highest verdict to date being $12 million for a bicyclist who had been hit by a car and suffered a brain injury and his second highest verdict being $8.5 million for a severely injured single mother and her three children.  Brent was also a member of the trial team that obtained a $51 million jury verdict for the parents of a child who died tragically at the hands of a drunk driver.  Brent is a member of both the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Million Dollar Advocates Forum.


Brent is a husband and father of three children. His experience as a father has led him to focus on representing injured children as often as possible. Knowing that he can have a positive impact on a child’s life is rewarding, both personally and professionally. Brent’s charitable efforts have been dedicated to children’s rights and the fight against breast cancer, the latter stemming from his wife’s survival from the disease. Brent is a former member of the Fore! Kids Foundation and a founding member of the Acadiana Chapter for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
