The Brown Law Office LLC is a law firm devoted to the practice of family law including such matters as divorce, child custody, child support, modifications of divorce decree, grandparents' rights and other similar cases.

Located in Commerce, the law firm was established in 1975 by John Terry Brown after receiving his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Georgia and serving as an attorney with a defense firm in southeast Georgia and an adjunct professor of American government at two junior colleges.


The Brown Law Office takes great professional pride in its divorce and family law work and is totally devoted to the legal interests of its clients and protecting those rights. The firm continually strives to improve its performance and service and attempts to be accessible to its clients at all times. The firm serves clients in Commerce, Athens, Gainesville and throughout northeast Georgia.


The philosophy of the firm is simple. We are aggressive and strive to build the best case possible utilizing all available tools of the law at the firm's disposal, including outside expertise such as investigators, forensic accountants and appraisers, and child psychologists in custody cases. In our opinion only by aggressively pursuing a matter can a case be successfully resolved, whether by mediation, settlement or trial. The firm is always willing to settle if a settlement is in the client's interest; otherwise, the firm has absolutely no hesitation in resolving the matter through trial.

If you are looking for a firm which will aggressively pursue your case, work hard and devote the necessary time and effort to provide the best possible chance for success, please contact us to schedule an appointment with our experienced Commerce lawyer.
