    Coming from a big-firm environment, Mr. Brown spent the early part of his legal career representing major financial institutions and large corporations.

    Moreover, Mr. Brown holds a Top 1% ranking from the Premier Lawyers of America, and he has received peer review ratings from Martindale-Hubbell along with many other top rankings and endorsements from his peers.

    A 1979 graduate of Louisiana State University, Mr. Brown returned to his alma mater and obtained his Juris Doctor from Louisiana State University's Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 1983. He is admitted to practice before all U.S. District Courts in Louisiana as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals 5th Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Highly active in his legal community, Mr. Brown is a member of the AARP Legal Services Network, the American Association for Justice, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America's Family Law Section, the American Bar Association's Elder Law Section, the Louisiana Trial Lawyers Association and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, among his other professional affiliations.
