Brandon J. Fremin
Brandon Fremin, a former United States attorney, is a litigator whose practice includes a wide range of disciplines. He started his legal career as a public servant and served the community and his country for many years. In 2018 his career in public service culminated in an appointment to the position of United States Attorney for the Middle District of Louisiana. Throughout his legal career Brandon has ascended to leadership roles at every level of his service, and has been responsible for complex cases, personnel, and multi-million dollar budgets. Though he spent much of his career leading attorneys and staff, Brandon is no stranger to the courtroom. Over the course of his career, he has logged thousands of hours of courtroom experience and was responsible for countless legal matters for the State of Louisiana and for the United States of America.
As the United States Attorney, Brandon was responsible for all federal legal matters in his district in which the United States was a party. As the chief federal law enforcement official in a nine-parish district, he was responsible for the investigation and prosecution of all federal criminal matters. This critical work included protecting Americans from terrorism and threats to National Security as well as fighting violent crime, financial crimes, protecting children and the elderly, combatting health care and disaster fraud, vigorously combatting organized drug trafficking networks, and much, much more. Brandon’s role as U.S. Attorney also included important work in the civil division where he was responsible for representing the United States in a variety of legal matters representing both plaintiffs and defendants. This included employing the civil legal process to protect the interests of the United States by aggressively fighting healthcare fraud, pursuing the forfeiture of criminal proceeds, and collecting millions of dollars in criminal and civil judgments for victims of crime.
A Louisiana native, Brandon earned a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, cum laude, from Southeastern Louisiana University in 1998. He is also a graduate of the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University where he earned a Bachelor of Civil Law and Juris Doctor in 2003. While attending law school at LSU he was a member of the Wex Malone Inn of Court and a recipient of the Louisiana State University Board of Supervisors’ scholarship.
Brandon is also a veteran of the United States Marine Corps where he served as a Heavy Machine Gunner and earned the rank of Sergeant. As a Marine, Brandon held various leadership positions and was awarded medals and commendations recognizing his abilities, leadership, and service.
Brandon and his wife, Rebecca, are raising three wonderful daughters here in Louisiana, and though Brandon has had an accomplished legal career he is most proud of his family.
