About Me

If you have reached this page, you want to know if I am the right person to help you, help your friend, or help someone you love who is in trouble.    At The Gordon Law Firm we know what is really important to our current and potential clients is the quality of our attorneys' character, legal skills, and their ability to stand up and fight for you when your future is on the line. That is why we offer a free consultation in order for you to meet with us in person before you commit to pay any fees.

We understand and appreciate the trust and confidence that our clients place in our firm.  During the past 5 years we have helped more than 2500 people.  Each client is more than just a number.   Each new person seeking help has been an opportunity to learn more about that person’s career, educational background, and personality.  If you care about your clients, and know the possible effects of a conviction upon their lives, you want to work hard and fight for them to achieve the best possible result.

I now have more than seventeen years of experience.  During my career I have helped many clients charged with serious felonies and misdemeanors in Northern Virginia.  I am a member of the Virginia Bar and the State Bars of Florida and Georgia. I am also a member of the Fairfax Bar Association, the American Bar Association, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys.

I earned a Bachelor of Science from James Madison University in 1991 and graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law in 1994.   I live in Fairfax County with my wife, sons, and two Golden/Labrador retrievers.
