Trent Brown was born and raised in Edmonton. Like his father and grandfather before him, Trent quickly showed promise as a gifted athlete, having a decorated football career before taking the reigns at James H. Brown and Associates.
While attending the University of Alberta, he had an exceptional career for the Golden Bears, becoming a two-time CIAU All-Canadian cornerback and graduating with the U of A record for career interceptions.
Trent went on to play nine seasons with the Edmonton Football Club (1990 – 1999) as a defensive back. He quickly became a standout in the CFL, winning the 1993 Grey Cup championship and earning 4 All-Star team selections. His hard-hitting style of play was matched only by his tireless commitment to community outreach; during his time in the CFL, Trent became the honorary spokesman for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Edmonton, as well as supporting the Eskimos Stay in School Initiative, the Ronald McDonald House, United Way, the Carnival of Champions, Alex Taylor Community School, DARE, and Kids with Cancer. Over nine seasons, Trent inspired both hope in the lives of countless Edmontonians and fear in the hearts of CFL receivers.
Trent’s penchant for bone-crunching hits ultimately led to his early retirement. After numerous concussions and a skull fracture, Trent retired from football in 1999, returning to university to study law on his father’s advice. After completing his Bachelor of Laws at the University of Saskatchewan, Trent was called to the Alberta bar, determined to defend his clients’ interests with the same zeal and ferocity that made him a CFL champion.
Today, Trent brings his competitive nature and winning attitude to James H. Brown and Associates, drawing on his firsthand experience with life-altering injury to support our clients when they need it the most. He leads our team of injury lawyers, medical professionals, and analysts committed to standing up for our clients’ rights and securing fair compensation for their injuries.
Trent continues his work in the community as an Alberta Golden Bear and Edmonton Football Club Alumni. Away from work, he enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife Erin and daughters Brooklyn and Riley.
Trent is a member of the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association and the Law Society of Alberta.
