Attorney Profile

Focusing his practice on a variety of disciplines, Gary S. Brown is the founder of Brown Weimer LLC. Based in New Orleans, he provides representation to clients throughout the region. Admitted to practice in Louisiana, Mr. Brown is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Louisiana, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

A portion of Mr. Brown's practice is centered on family law matters. Many of his clients are seeing their marriages coming to an end and are thus having to deal with child custody and visitation, the division of marital assets and debts, and spousal and child support. When they are unable to come to an accord on these issues through negotiations or mediation, Mr. Brown aggressively represents their interests in court. His family law experience has also encompassed paternity disputes and establishment as well as the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements.

Mr. Brown also has extensive estate planning and administration experience. He regularly prepares and reviews wills, trusts, financial and health care powers of attorney, and advance health care directives, and he guides clients through the probate process. He has litigated will contests as well as actions involving fiduciary breaches by executors and administrators. Mr. Brown also works with elderly clients and their family members on issues involving long-term care, Medicaid planning, elder abuse and neglect, and asset protection, and he has represented people who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties in motor vehicle accidents. His excellent track record in all his endeavors have earned him a 10.0 "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo. Mr. Brown studied at the Louisiana State University's Paul M. Hebert Law Center and received his Juris Doctor in 1983.
