Geraldine Anne Brown accepted a position as Assistant Attorney General and works in Lansing, MI.
Geraldine A. Brown, known to her friends as Gera Brown, was a long time resident of Saginaw where she raised three children: Juliette, Michael and Jason in Saginaw.
Gera, was an elementary school teacher in area schools and a registered stock broker/financial consultant with Merrill Lynch in Saginaw. After graduating magna cum laude and as a Kings Scholar from Michigan State University Law School, she practiced with the Kitch Law Firm in Detroit, then the eighth largest law firm in Michigan. Gera now practices law with Robert E. Bourne in Midland, Michigan. Their law practice serves the entire state, not just the tri-cities of Midland, Saginaw and Bay City.
Gera’s educational background includes not only a law degree but an MBA and additional training in Federal Tax Issues, Life, Health and Annuities Insurance licenses and financial consulting. She has trained as a mediator for both civil and family matters and is approved for court appointments.
Languages Spoken: Spanish
Licensed since 2004
Gera is a colleague of mine in the Michigan Bar Association and the Michigan Forum of Estate Planning Attorneys. I became acquainted with her at the Michigan Forum meetings and by following her responses to questions asked by those in need of legal assistance. She donates her time on a regular basis to answer questions for those in need of legal help. Her responses are always professional and helpful, and she has an ability to boil down complex and confusing legal issues into terms that explain and give practical guidance to those in need of legal services.
