Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP Serving Wisconsin Since 1968
History of the Law Firm
In 1968, after arguing some of the most high profile cases of the day as a federal prosecutor for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, Franklyn M. Gimbel founded the firm. Frank’s late brother, Stanley P. Gimbel, joined the firm a year later, followed by former federal prosecutors Richard E. Reilly and Thomas E. Brown, and former Department of Justice Special Agent D. Michael Guerin.
The firm has continued to build upon this strong base of attorneys, adding the experience of Denis J. Regan, Kathryn A. Keppel, Patrick J. Knight, and Raymond M. Dall’Osto in the 1980s and Christopher L. Strohbehn, Erin M. Strohbehn, Steven C. McGaver, Jason D. Luczak and Emily I. Lonergan in the 2000s. Most recently, Joshua L. Gimbel joined the firm as a partner, after twenty-five years at Michael, Best & Friedrich. Also, Max T. Stephenson and Russell J. Karnes joined the firm as Associates.
