How to recover files from dead MacBook?

I have a dead Macbook Pro. As in, it won't even turn on. This is key, as most discussions on this topic involve computers that will turn on, but won't totally boot. Is it possible for me to recover files from that computer if it won't turn on, and how? The hard drive is in working condition. The computer won't start, according to Apple, because a coffee spill caused some damage to the area around the start up button. Everything else on the computer is in grand working condition as far as I'm aware.
