I hired Mr.Gordon to help me terminate my parental rights and he successfully did that! My ex-wife had taken the child away from me in 2013, and since then she was putting charges on me every time I inquired on the welfare of the child, I was paying a hefty child support of $1138.00 for one child (more than the state's guidelines) and she managed in a shady way to remove me as a guardian, change the kid's last name but never notified me. What kind of a mother behaves in such a manner towards the father of her child? However, she continued wanting me to pay child support. She kept me away of the child since 2013. According to DCF, the ex-wife never told the kid who the father was!
So I began contacting attorneys and ask for help but every attorney said that I MUST continue paying child support and just try to modify it. How fair is this when there in no ongoing relationship with the child because of the malicious interference of the mother? Then I looked at Avvo and found a reply of Mr.Gordon to another individual and so I decided to hire him. Mr. Gordon is very friendly, knowledgeable, professional, brilliant and caring attorney. He reviewed my case and saw a way out of this messy situation. He gathered all evidence,took the appropriate actions in a meticulous manner and we were successful. Of course the ex-wife put up a fight but Mr.Gordon argued my case in front of the judge successfully and the judge agreed with me, even when DCF was against it! A mutual agreement then was negotiated, thanks to Mr. Gordon. Only an experienced and brilliant attorney like Mr.Gordon could have succeeded in a termination of parental rights case!!! Even when the ex-wife and her lawyer tried to place obstacles to this agreement, Mr.Gordon's conscientious acts ensured my success. Thereupon, the ex-wife had to concede and agreed to sign the agreement to terminate my child support. Few days ago, the termination of parental rights was final and now I am free of all obligations! Mr.Gordon is an EXCELLENT, EXCEPTIONAL attorney! He and his staff are very friendly, we were always treated with respect and they were all very caring.
Here is an advise to everyone who reads: If you need a phenomenal family lawyer who will fight for you, you must hire Mr.Gordon! He will surely go far and beyond to successfully represent you in court and ensure the best possible result for your case! I cannot thank Mr.Gordon enough for the outstanding job he did in my case!!!!

I saw the review claiming he is dingy and in a dark office and that must be a review of someone else.
This attorney has a beautiful office and is very professional.
All my questions were answered and more. When we went to court things went about the way he told us it would, except for a few curve balls thrown by the other side and Attorney Gordon handled those efficiently and effectively.
Really check this guy out he and his staff really care and were great in their actions for us

Bruce was very kind to me considering the runaround my ex-huband gave us both. He was both kind a patient through the long year process it took. I live out of state and he was still willing to take my case. I couldn't have done it with out him. I thank him greatly.
Laurie Giles, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Often as a divorce attorney we find that who opposing counsel is often helps or hinders settlement of a difficult complex matter. As opposing counsel on several matters, I have found that Bruce's attention to detail and professional demeanor to be a great help in reaching a fair and equitable settlement of even the most contentious cases.
