Brian Augustus Beckcom is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has gained national and international recognition for his work on complex, high profile legal cases. Brian is an honors graduate of the University of Texas School of Law and has degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy from Texas A&M University.
Brian has successfully prosecuted many high profile cases. His work on behalf of his clients has been featured in the national and international media, including Good Morning America and Nightline.
For example, when the Maersk Alabama was attacked by Somali Pirates, it made headlines around the world, and the event was made into a Hollywood Blockbuster starring Tom Hanks as Captain Phillips.
Many of the crew members hired Brian to represent them. Brian and his firm not only took on one of the largest shipping companies in the world, Maersk Lines Limited, but also countered a massive Hollywood publicity campaign that portrayed Captain Phillips as a hero and the crew as lazy layabouts.
Brian’s investigative efforts ensured that the true story was told, and the Maersk ultimately agreed to an out-of-court settlement for each client Brian represented after completely denying any negligence or responsibility for years.
Brian currently represents Captain Wren Thomas, who was kidnapped by Nigerian mercenaries while operating off the Coast of West Africa. Captain Thomas’ story has been featured in national international media.
The case has garnered attention not only because of the heroic acts of Captain Thomas during the attack and hostage situation but also because of connections to Boko Haram and corruption in West Africa.
