In Memoriam

We are sad to share that our long-time friend and partner, Gary W. Brown, passed away on August 4, 2017.  Gary joined our firm in 1990, and retired in May 2017 after 50 years of practice. Born and raised in Oklahoma, Gary entered the private practice of law in the Washington, D.C. area in 1970.  He concentrated in the area of medical malpractice defense, legal malpractice defense, product liability and employer discrimination, and was a trained arbitrator and mediator.  In addition to being active in community affairs, bar activities and church activities, Gary headed up the Medical Malpractice Defense Group of the Firm.  He was Chairman Emeritus of McCandlish Lillard’s Board of Directors.

Gary’s full obituary is available online:

We are pleased to share some photos from happier times, at Gary’s retirement party thrown by the firm earlier this year.
