I am here to help my clients get through their legal troubles in their time of crisis. 

 

In doing so, I take the time to carefully listen to what the client wants and needs.  Then I explain all their legal options to them in clear, simple, and easy to understand terms.  Finally, I fight hard to get them the best possible outcome I can under their particular circumstances. I try to perform all these services at a reasonable price, and offer payment plans on most cases. 

 

I always offer a free phone consultation as well.  That way my clients can immediately get a sense of what needs to be done in their case without having to make an appointment and come into my office just to get a simple question answered.  If I cannot handle a particular case, I will generally be able to refer the client to another attorney who can help them out with their problem.

I first met with Mr. Gordon in 2015. He was quick to return my calls, spoke to me with such ease and struck me as a very kind and approachable person. His staff was efficient and always courteous. I hired him and he took care of things just as he said he would and for the amount he quoted me. A couple years later I reached out to him regarding a misdemeanor issue with my son, he not only called me back after I texted him, he counseled me at no charge. He's like an Angel on my shoulder.

A great person
Have a child support issue, called Stephen and left a message. Stephen retuned my call the same day. He took the time to understand the issue. I even lost the connection on my cell phone, I was hearing him but he was not, he stayed on until I moved to a spot where the communication was restaured. He sorted out thing for me well and gave me sound advice. Stephen is one of those honest people, if he does not know the answer to something he will not BS you through it, he takes the time to look it up first. I will certainly come to Stephen with any futur legal need.

Family
What can I say about Mr. Stephen Gordon? I went in for a family case. He was able to make sure that I got the results I needed. He was always there for me and answered every question I had. I was always able to get a hold of him or his amazing secretary. He didn't try to over charge me and worked with me on payments. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a hard working, honest, Attorney that will get you the results you ask for.

I was very pleased with Steven Gordan answers to our questions!! He explained everything to us in terms we could understand. We feel that the time spent talking with Steven has given us more information about our situation than anything we learned in the past from other lawyers. I will say that on a scale of 1-10 this experience was a 10. Thanks!

Treated Me Like Family
I am a client of Mr. Gordon. He processed the probate of my father's final will and testament. Stephen is very thorough and detail-oriented. I would highly recommend him and hire him again for future services.

Excellent and very trustworthy
Mr. Gordon helped me with my divorce and custody papers 2 years ago. I was going through a hard time, but with Mr. Gordon's assistance, I understood everything that had to be done and made sure to give me all the information I needed to have things done in a timely manner. I will be forever grateful to have had Mr. Gordon as my representative.
