This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Competent, Caring, Professional, Powerhouse Attorney
Jack Gordon was my attorney for the better half of 9 years. My civil case was complex and not without extreme difficulty, but Jack believed in me, he believed in my case. Not only does he represent what is BEST in attorneys he represents what's BEST in humanity. I always felt cared for, considered and listened too, and really felt like I had someone unequivocally in my corner that was going to fight for me. I would have JACK GORDON represent me for the rest of my life because he's good people and one hell of a trial attorney.

Most Wonderful Attorney to Work With
Jack Gordon of Maney & Gordon, represented me in what was one of the most difficult and heart wrenching experiences of my life; the wrongful death of my youngest daughter due to gross negligence on the part of a hospital. Jack worked very hard and diligently for me and more importantly, for my daughter. He was so well prepared to try the case that he very much wanted to take the case to trial. As a preliminary step before trial, we entered mediation with the defendant hospital. Jack negotiated very persistently on our behalf and we were able to reach an agreeable settlement. Although no settlement could ever assuage the grief and sadness over the loss of my daughter, it did help to bring closure, knowing that those responsible for the negligence associated with my daughter’s death were held accountable and compelled to take responsibility for their actions. I am so grateful to Jack Gordon for the genuine care, professionalism and manner in which my case was handled. I am very happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Jack Gordon and his whole team to anyone that is seeking counsel from an attorney they can trust and depend upon to represent them. Jack is the perfect combination of compassion, honesty and tenacity and I am very thankful that he was in my corner.

Trustworthy & Strong Attorney
Having known Jack for many years on a personal level, I immediately turned to him when I was faced with a serious legal matter in April 2015. I went to Jack because I knew that he was somebody that I could TRUST. I also knew that Jack was somebody who was very well versed in different areas of the law, and that he was somebody who would NOT be intimidated by the opposing "powerhouse" law firm in my case. When I called Jack's office for an appointment, sensing my anxiety, he arranged to meet with me almost immediately. Jack had already reviewed all of my legal documents when I arrived, and he quickly put me at ease. Jack confidently explained the facts surrounding my case, and he patiently answered all of my questions and concerns. He also made clear that we would not be "bullied", and that he would do everything he could to help me. He told me not to worry and that he would handle everything. As my legal matter moves forward, Jack continues to keep me informed, answer my questions, and allay my fears. Based on my experience, I highly recommend attorney Jack Gordon for anybody in need of legal counsel.

Jack ran circles around the opposing party!
Jack was extremely articulate and on point in an arbitration hearing where I a pool contractor walked off the job. The end result was extremely beneficial to me.
