In New Orleans, Our Firm Brown Weimer Law Firm LLC is here to serve you.
WHO WE ARE
HARDENED LITIGATORS, VIGOROUS NEGOTIATORS, AND COMPASSIONATE COUNSELORS
Every case starts with a story and a problem. We listen, evaluate, plan, and implement. Our initial consultation with you is complimentary (no charge). An attorney (not a paralegal, not staff) will meet with you, hear your story, and advise how our firm proposes to solve your problem. We will tell you how much we expect your case to cost and how long it should take. In some cases, it will be necessary to file a lawsuit. Or you may be getting sued. We are experienced litigators that will fight hard and smart to resolve your case. Some cases are transactional in nature, or just require our legal knowledge, strategic advice, and counseling to solve your problem. Our firm is well-versed in these non-litigation pursuits.
