About Coy

Learn Coy’s areas of practice.

I am a native of Central Florida and now make my home on the beautiful emerald coast of the Florida Panhandle.  I graduated cum laude from Charleston Southern University in South Carolina, where I majored in Criminal Justice.  I was a Preseason All-American linebacker for the CSU Buccaneers, and was inducted into the university's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2004.

After college, I graduated second in my class from the Florida Highway Patrol Training Academy, where I also earned the school's prestigious Director's Award for leadership.  In five years as a Florida State Trooper, I investigated over a thousand motor vehicle accidents, and participated in hundreds of criminal arrests.

Building on my law enforcement career, I earned my law degree from Samford University's Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama, in 2001.  After a short stint in Manhattan, New York, I returned to Florida and founded Browning Law Firm, P.A. in Fort Walton Beach.

I am married to Elizabeth Ward Browning and we have two beautiful children, Isla Grace and Tice Browning.

Thorough. Professional. Effective.
Coy and his team were instrumental in helping me with an auto accident case. They were very knowledgeable and professional throughout the process. They made a difficult situation just a bit easier knowing they were working for me.

Pleasant Experience
I was referred to Mr. Browning by my parents. After talking with them over the phone the first time, I felt like I was in good hands by their word choices, plus my parents had good things to say. I was kinda skeptical at first because my wreck did happen in another state. I felt like I had better options with a lawyer in that state, but nevertheless my parents were right like they always are lol!! Anyways, It was a pleasure having Coy and Loreena as my lawyer / representative. They both went above and beyond to get me a settlement. I was personally content with just surviving the wreck and not having to pay any medical bills. I didn't really care about anything else. My medical bills were very expensive because the wreck was out of state, but Coy and Lorenna worked hard to get a medical reduction in my bills. This allowed me to recieve a settlement I wasn't expecting. Me not getting a settlement wasn't good enough for them, they thought that was bad business. On another note, they did a really good job investigating the wreck and gathering intell and data which i did not have. Also, if Lorenna gets assisted to your case, be very happy because she has the most beautiful and calming voice I ever heard, shes also very sweet in person. Thanks for everything Coy and Loreena, it Was a Pleasure!

THE BEST IN THE AREA HANDS DOWN!
I had the pleasure of working with this law firm on many occasions. I can tell you after having to hire a few in the past this one is the best! The result of hiring this law firm protected myself and my family interests. I was blown away at the support of his staff especially Mrs Burke (receptionist). I had many questions and concerns during the course of my case.Mrs Burke always rose to the challenge, offering me support and guidance in a prompt and courteous manner. I am able to say I got beyond what I paid for. I can wholeheartedly say if I was in need, I would look no further than The Browning law firm they are the absolute best!

God Sent Attorney and staff
Mr Browning and his paralegal Loreen Scoles went above and beyond for me. They did everything they said they would. Explained every aspect of what to come or expect. Both were amazingly patient with me. Helped me understand the insurance language and what to come. Every city should have a Coy Browning and Loreena to assist the community in their times of injuries. I’m very blessed with the support I received from them both.

Excellent Attorney!
It was such a pleasure working with Coy and his staff. The entire staff was welcoming and helpful at every turn. Mr. Browning and the Paralegal kept me informed the entire time. They were patient with me and explained things in a way that was easy to understand. I hope that I never need them again, but if so, he is the one!

Highly recommend Browning Law Firm!
For my legal matters, for anyone reading I extensively recommend the Browning Law Firm to represent your case! Ms. Loreena Scoles was the paralegal to help me with my multitude of constant questions & was always a step ahead with answers. I loved her caring nature and attention to detail. Their response time is superb! Mr Coy Browning and his whole team are excellent. Mr. Coy understands i’m a human and not just a paycheck to him! I highly recommend this law firm!! Definitely worth the money in my opinion!

Great Team
I hired Mr. Browning for a my case and from consultation through the length of the case Mr. Browning and his team were extremely helpful in answering all questions I had, and with explaining the full process of the case. They sent me documentation to my email that I needed to fill out for my case they didn’t just leave me to try and find documents. I highly recommend to anyone in the Crestview, FWB area. They were even helpful with payment plans for their services.
