Determination, teamwork and skill—the characteristics that are necessary to succeed in sports also apply to achieving legal success. With sports as a major part of Gordon’s life, he relies on those characteristics in his legal practice, building a strong case, developing a comprehensive strategy and implementing it with tenacity.

With that foundation, Gordon’s goal is to obtain the best possible result for our clients.
