Gary S. Brown

Founder and Owner
New Orleans, Louisiana

Gary S. Brown is the founder and owner of Brown Weimer LLC. He has been practicing law for over twenty years, assisting clients with a variety of legal matters. He is at home in the courtroom or the conference room.

In the past, Mr. Brown practiced in the large firm environment where he represented major banks and corporations in complex litigation matters. But he missed contact with people and solving their real-life problems. He missed the rewards of personally serving and getting to know his clients. He also sometimes felt when he represented the interests of big business that he was on the wrong side. So he founded this law firm to represent people, not business.

Yet, those years in high stakes legal trenches honed Mr. Brown's legal skill and knowledge. And now he uses his skill and knowledge to help you, the individual, in family and elder law matters.
