If you are looking for an attorney, this will give you some information about me, Harry Gordon. First and foremost, my goal in the practice of law can be stated in the following few words: to provide to my clients first class legal services at reasonable rates.
I grew up in a large family on a farm in eastern Virginia, where I learned my work ethic. I received a sholarship to the University of Virginia, where I studied engineering and economics, ultimately obtaining a BA degree. After completing military service and working in industry, I entered UVA Law School and obtained my law degree with a focus on business law. With that background plus years of experience in private practice and corporate practice, I bring a somewhat unique approach to the practice of law:
First, I understand that hard work and perserverence are the keys to success, whether on the farm, in business, or when I am providing legal services for clients.
Second, I have worked for and provided legal counsel to very large and very small businesses, from New York City to small towns in North Carolina.
Third, I am admitted to practice in three states, New York, Virginia, and North Carolina, having studied the law and passed the bar exams in each state. In counseling very large corporations I have often dealt with the laws of many states as well as international law matters, and I have appeared in many different state and federal courts and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court of the United States and the Supreme Court of North Carolina.
Fourth, I have a great deal of experience as a litigator, as a transactions attorney preparing contracts and doing preventive law, and as corporate counsel assisting businesses with day-to-day legal issues and problems.
Fifth, I have both a business background and a business law background, with the necessary experience and understanding of tax laws, bankruptcy laws, collections laws, and corporate laws, to give business clients accurate, practical advice and to do so without undue delay or expense. I also do Wills and Estate Planning and handle real estate and other matters for business clients and others. I have also handled quite a few personal injury and insurance-type matters. Prior to and during part of law school I was an adjuster for a major insurance company, and it gave me invaluable insights into how to get insurance companies to pay and pay fairly.
It's your choice. You can go to a New York law firm and pay New York rates. You can go a 100-attorney law firm and possibly have your work done by a green associate or a paralegal. Or, you can call me--an experienced attorney certified by the bars of three different states, with the stated goal of providing to you as a client first class legal services at reasonable rates.
