As one of the state's strongest and most diversified law firms outside New Orleans, Gold Weems has achieved and maintained its preeminent position in the Louisiana legal community through the quality and dedication of its members. Uncompromising standards are reflected in the ability and integrity of our attorneys, whose credentials reflect not only superior academic achievement, but also distinguished service to the community, the state, and the profession.
In 2016, Gold Weems established a satellite law office in Leesville, Louisiana to better serve its clients throughout the parishes of Western Louisiana and Fort Polk, as well as its clients located in East Texas. The same preeminent legal expertise, service, and professionalism offered at the Gold Weems main office in Alexandria is now available in its Leesville office.
Our Leesville office houses Leesville City Attorney and Vernon Parish native, Max S. Antony, on a full-time basis, and multiple other Gold Weems attorneys on a rotating basis. It is conveniently located at 110 South Third Street, right in the heart of the Leesville Historical District.
Vernon Parish is easily reached via excellent regional airline service into Alexandria International Airport (AEX), which is served by American Airlines through Dallas (DFW), Delta Airlines through Atlanta (ATL) and United Airlines through Houston (IAH).
In 1950, Leo Gold and George Hall partnered to form a law firm dedicated to providing clients with representation of the highest quality. From the outset, Gold and Hall were committed to professionalism, integrity, and excellence in the practice of law. Their uncompromising standards caused the firm to quickly grow into one of the largest firms north of Interstate 10 in Louisiana.
In 1965, young attorneys F.A. Little, Jr. and John F. Simon moved to Alexandria to join the firm. During the 1970s, the firm added a quartet of talent: Charles S. Weems, III, Henry B. Bruser, III, Eugene J. Sues, and Edward E. Rundell. The firm of Gold, Weems, Bruser, Sues & Rundell expanded and continued to thrive into the new century.
Gold Weems has developed a wide range of practice areas by recruiting attorneys with exceptional academic credentials and distinguished professional careers. As students, attorneys were elected to the Order of the Coif, edited and served on law review, and received the highest moot court awards. After law school, our attorneys have served as clerks to judges for United States Courts of Appeal, United States District Courts, and Louisiana state courts. Gold Weems alumni have been appointed to federal judgeships and elected to the state judiciary.
More than 65 years later, Leo Gold and George Hall's dedication to excellence and professionalism inspires a new generation of attorneys, and remains the benchmark for the practice of law at Gold Weems.
