In 1935, Judge Beeman Strong, Former Commission of Appeals Judge and General Counsel of Yount-Lee Oil Co., joined his son Ewell,and A.D. Moore, to form the Beaumont law firm of Strong, Moore, & Strong. With a wealth of oil company legal experience, the firm quickly established itself as a valuable resource for growing companies in Southeast Texas. Clients included leading Beaumont-based businesses and regional and national energy, rail and chemical companies.
The firm began evolving to a litigation practice in the early 1970’s when products liability and toxic tort litigation began to grow in Texas, much of it in Southeast Texas.
By the late 1980s, Strong Pipkin had more than twenty lawyers and in the mid 1990s, established the firm’s Houston office. This addition reflected the firm’s growing statewide practice and its work with clients beyond Texas.
As Strong Pipkin approaches its 80th anniversary, it enjoys a multi-state civil trial practice from offices in Houston and Beaumont. It remains committed to serving our clients effectively and efficiently and serving the communities in which we live. That commitment includes recognizing the importance of fostering diversity to reflect our communities and better serve our clients.
