Firm Overview


Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP

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, Patrick J. Knight, and Raymond M. Dall’Osto in the 1980s and Jason D. Luczak in the 2000s. Joshua L. Gimbel joined the firm as a Partner after twenty-five years at Michael Best & Friedrich. Jaclyn C. Kallie and Megan L. Drury came on after that. Max T. Stephenson was promoted to Partner in 2021 and Adam J. Schleis, John D. McNally and Zak Wroblewski also joined the firm as Associates in 2022. Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP is excited to announce the promotion of two new Partners as well in 2023: Nicole M. Masnica, and Kristen N. Nelson! Since then, we have welcomed Eric J. Schanowski & Christopher R. Vandeventer to the team.
