Joe Brown has a bachelor in political science degree, and he also studied at law school in the University of California, Los Angeles. Joe’s career began when he started to work as a prosecutor in Memphis, actually the first African-American to hold such a position in the city; from that time Brown’s net worth started to grow. As he was successful while working as a prosecutor, Joe decided to open a law firm of his own, and later worked in the State Criminal Court of Shelby County, Tennessee. Joe was noticed by television producers, and he received an invitation to be a part of a reality show, which was centred on binding arbitration, and during the making of which Brown had an opportunity to work with Sonia Montejano and Jeanne Zelasko. In 1998 the show entitled ‘Judge Joe Brown’ aired for the first time on CBS TV, and continued until the 2012-13 season; the immediate success of the show had a huge impact on the growth of Joe’s net worth, especially as it was eventually syndicated throughout the US.  This show not only made Joe more famous but was also different, as he was one of the first African Americans to have this kind of show on television. As mentioned before, the show was really popular and its ratings were one of the highest until the last couple of seasons, so there is no surprise that the show was one of the main sources of Brown’s high net worth. Despite this fact it was decided to cancel this show in 2013, at which point it had become the second longest-running continuous TV show of its kind, but the highest rated chaired by a male, apparently partly because of his aggressive demeanour towards litigants when he had decided their guilt. Among the litigants were noted musical performers Ike Turner, Coolio and Rick James.

During his career, Joe has also had some unpleasant experiences, for example when in 2014 he was arrested because of verbal abuse during a court hearing in which he was representing a child support litigant. Fortunately, it ended quickly as Brown was later released from jail after five days, however, he was subsequently banned from practicing law in Tennessee in 2016.

To talk about Joe Brown’s personal life, he has been married twice – he divorced second wife Deborah Herron in 2017 having married her in 2001, and has two children from his first marriage.

  1. American Economy will eventually fail, because American people do not make money according to their absolute intelligence but due to the fact that what they do is designed to cater for the entertainment of the majority of people, where popularity counts. To make money aim to entertain the majority of the domestic public/society and not to use one’s intelligence to understand the depth of the Universe and apply the knowledge to improve the lives of people.People do not pay for comforts they pay for entertainment, including false security through other spiritual organisation, It is the theory of relativity that counts, weigh your intelligence to find a subject that entertains and is relative to the the public and TV stations will love to present that. one even does better if one projects what should be done in private to be presented in public and to allow the relevant people to be shown on on TV one can make a popular TV programme with the public itself starring the primary characters.
    If one looks up the net work of people like Albert Einstein , Richard Feyman and Judge Judy and Judge Brown one gets the idea what its all about
