    You cannot talk about top matrimonial attorney's in the Capital District without Larry Gordon's name coming up a lot. Larry is a born litigator who never stops fighting for his clients and routinely exceeds their expectations with his results. If you have the opportunity to meet Larry, you may get the sense that he is reading your mind. Worry not, that is simply 48 years of experience at work. While his experience is unparalleled, there is no substitute for hard work. Even after 48 years, Larry still works nights and weekends because of his belief that his clients come first. Larry's personality is perfect for matrimonial work. His compassion helps his clients get through what is often the most painful experience of their life. His tenacity, however, is reserved for his opponents. When you need the best, call Larry Gordon.
