Obtaining several verdicts greater than $10 million against several Fortune 500 companies before his 40th birthday, Brent Bigger is one of the most accomplished Florida trial lawyers of his generation. In addition, he has obtained dozens of seven-figure verdicts and settlements for his clients. Regardless of the stakes or the results, Brent passionately fights to ensure that his clients receive the best result possible and genuinely cares about counselling people about the process and recovery from tragic circumstances.

As a trial lawyer for nearly twenty years, Brent is Board-Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Florida Bar. A founder and managing member of Paul | Knopf | Bigger PLLC, he routinely handles products liability, medical malpractice, trucking cases, and other complex serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. He also maintains a niche practice handling third-party liability actions arising from workplace accidents and worker’s compensation cases. Brent is admitted to practice law in Florida, Georgia and Illinois.

He is a member of the Florida Justice Association, the Board of Directors for the Tampa Bay Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an invitation-only national organization for trial lawyers.

Brent graduated from Bradley University with a B.S.B.A and from Stetson University College of Law, With Honors (Top 5%). While in law school, Brent was an accomplished moot court advocate, being named the Best Advocate at several, national competitions. He began his career with Holland & Knight and then clerked for a federal judge, but he soon realized that his passion was representing individuals and families who had been harmed.

Every year since 2012, he has been recognized as a Florida Super Lawyer™ and one of the Florida Trend’s Legal Elite™. In 2013, he was awarded the F. Scott Baldwin Most Outstanding Young Trial Lawyer by the American Association for Justice, an award given to only one lawyer in the United States each year.

His greatest blessings, however, are being the loving husband of his wife, Becky, and the proud father of his three children: Abby Grace, Sophie Anne and Brooks Bradley. Brent enjoys hunting, fishing, golfing and many other outdoor pursuits with his kids and family.
