Weeks later formed a partnership with John F. Whear to form the law firm of Weeks & Whear. He also worked for the Office of the Prothonotary and according to a local directory, was Acting Collector of Inland Revenue for a time. In addition to his legal pursuits, Weeks was the owner of the successful dry goods firm, W.A. Weeks & Company. Not only active in civilian life, Weeks was a veteran of the Boer War and had been a member of the local Militia for many years. He served as Commander of the G Company in the War, which combined the soldiers from New Brunswick and PEI, and was Aide de Camp and Chief of Staff to General Hutton at Camp Aldershot, Nova Scotia.
