About Eric L. Brown

I advise and represent clients in the following areas: estate administration and estate probate; estate planning document preparation (wills, revocable living trusts, living wills, health care proxies, and power of attorneys); business entity formation; artist and entertainment contracts; copyright and trademark licensing agreements. I offer clients detailed-oriented legal services gained through a former career in accounting and finance one of the most respected, international financial institutions. I also offer consultations at the Brooklyn Bar Association, the Queens Bar Association, The City of New York Bar Association, and at the private residence of senior citizens and disabled individuals. I have a strong, personal interest in assisting elders, as well as the children, grandchildren, and self-appointed caretakers of elders in their legal matters. Furthermore, as a former professional actor, trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and a member of Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, I have a strong interest in assisting performing and visual artists, musicians, and other arts and entertainment professionals in their legal matters. In the past, I completed an internship through the Seton Hall University School of Law Entertainment Law Externship at Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts in New York. Currently, I am not accepting new clients.
