    Mr. Gordon is not only a great personal injury attorney, he is also a great litigator. He is the attorney to go to when you have been involved in an accident for the best outcome.

    I endorse David because I have been impressed with his knowledge, skill and commitment to his clients. As an attorney myself Board Certified by the NBTA, I know what a rigorous process it is. It is not a "pay your dues and get a badge" organization. It is earned.
