About Me

     I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, and during my youth, worked at both Caesars Palace and the Sahara Hotels.  While attending Valley High School in Las Vegas, I met Bonnie Braiker-Gordon, who in 1975 became my wife.  We attended college together in Los Angeles and then attended law school together in San Diego. 

     I have always been a fan of all forms of music and for a short time, played guitar in a rock & roll band.  I have never retired my guitars, and playing music to this day is about the greatest form of relaxation I have ever experienced.

     Bonnie (my wife and law partner) and I have two grown children.  Our son recently married in 2008, and our daughter is currently planning her wedding, which is scheduled for October 2010.

     I have many hobbies and interests, however, this is neither the time nor place for a discussion of my own pursuits.  

     What is far more important to learn about me is my assurances to use my very best efforts to obtain a fair, just and reasonable outcome in every legal matter handled by our law firm.  Further, that I take a "personal" interest in all legal matters in which I am retained to represent your interests, and vow to keep you fully informed of all material aspects of your case - whatever that may entail...

     Whatever choices you make in selecting an Attorney to represent you, please do not be embarrassed or ashamed to ask important  and pertinent questions - and that would most certainly include hourly rates, costs and opinions as to success or failure at the time of trial. 


Eric S. Gordon, Esq.
