About Harry

Learn Harry’s areas of practice.


Hello.   If you are in need of an attorney,  this brief summary is designed to tell you a) whether my law firm offers the type of legal services you need, and b)  whether I myself  have the knowledge,  experience, and  other qualities such that you should entrust me and my firm with your matter.  You may have found that it is quite difficult to find an attorney who offers the type of legal service or help you need, and then even more difficult to decide which attorney or attorneys who practice in that area of law will indeed provide quality, timely, and affordable legal services and achieve the results you require.   I will start with my stated goal in the practice of law:      


                            "To provide to my clients first class legal services at reasonable rates."


 My practice caters primarily to businesses, large and small, including both the planning phase and litigation of claims, whether filing suits or defending suits.   I also assist with the personal side of my business clients, assisting with Wills, Estate Planning, tax planning of many varieties, and more, including personal injury claims.  I handle almost every aspect of business from initial consultation, to formation of corporations and limited liability companies--and we are quite competitive with Legal Zoom and its copycats.   We handle initial consultatation to contract preparation and contracting procedures, dealing with collections and bankruptcy issues, labor law/hiring/human resources matters, and much more.   


Over the years I have assisted so many start-up businesses and answered their "most-frequently-asked questions" so many times that I wrote a number of articles that I offer free to my clients and prospective clients.  These include question such as:  How can I avoid collection problems up front?  Should I incorporate my business?  S-Corporation or LLC?  Are non-competition agreement enforceable?  See all and more at .  



The goal to provide quality legal services at reasonable rates comes from knowing so many people who could not afford quality legal sevices.   I grew up in a large family in the farm lands of 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, and 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. 


 Selecting the right attorney is not easy.  You are welcome to contact me if you want your matter handled by a veteran attorney with a proven track record, an attorney certified by the bars of  three different states, New York, Virginia, and North Carolina,  and an attorney with the stated goal of providing to you as a client first class legal services at reasonable rates.

Knowledgeable and relentless
Mr. Gordon represented us against a fraudulent building contractor. He was tenacious against the individual. After winning in court, and gaining a sizable judgement for us, he was able to turn that judgement into a secured lein on the individual's property. As you may know, judgements don't mean you will recover your losses, but the secured lein has provided the opportunity to actually recover our initial losses. Briefly stated, "You want Harry Gordon to be your lawyer, not opposing council".

My business would have not survived without Harry Gordon
I highly recommend Harry Gordon for any business needs. He set up my corporation, fought my former employer that tried to sue me as I was starting up, and has given me great legal advise along the way. He has done a great job collecting debt and gone into mitigation twice with companies owing me money and we won. Harry is relentless, and is definitely one that you want sitting on your side of the table. I would have never made it 18 years in business without Harry Gordon.
