I needed to use Gordon's services after I filed for a divorce last year. From our first consultation, I knew I would retain his services for representation. Here is why: In that hour, I gained more information than I would have dreamed possible. My best guess is many attorneys would have used several hours to provide me with the same amount of information. After hearing of my situation, he guided me to use a mediator to help deal with a large portion of our case. In the end, this saved me a large sum of money. Whenever I was in need of guidance from Gordon, he responded to my outreach very promptly and professionally. Over the course of our case, I needed his expertise every bit as much as the services of the mediator. Gordon was very careful to not over utilize his services, he instead provided me with all of my options in addition to what he could offer. If you decide to retain his services, you can be rest assured that Gordon knows this area of the law extremely well. He does not play "dirty," but will also quickly assert himself on his client's behalf and not be intimidated by the other party's representation. Gordon was originally referred to me by a good friend (who happens to be a local attorney) who knows of Gordon's positive reputation. I feel extremely lucky to have had his representation during what was easily the most difficult time in my life. It would have been more difficult if I hadn't had someone who was comfortable standing strong on my behalf, knew the law so well and was willing to work alongside the mediator to help keep our process as calm as possible.

My experience with the legal system during my divorce was difficult, but I am so glad that I was referred to Gordon Phillips because I found in him a very effective combination of clear legal thought, determination and the ability to make a court follow his line of reasoning. These were invaluable to me as my ex-husband had seized all the assets of our trust and abandoned me and our three children. Even though the courts initially seemed prejudiced to listening to my ex-husband's unsupported claims, Gordon was able to persuade the court of their previous error, reinstate child and spousal support and ultimately win the case and recover enough of our assets to provide for my kids and me.
To say that I could not have done it without him is an understatement. Throughout the whole ordeal Gordon was a pillar of wisdom, clarity and encouragement combined with a very good legal strategist and representative before the courts. He was always professional and firm in his approach and he did an excellent job of preparing me for our three day trial. The bottom line, when the court saw how well prepared we were, and how little actual evidence my ex-husband had, I won hands down. When you start out with a case most lawyers look at it and say no way, Gordon believed in truth and ethics and won the day in spite of apparent disadvantages. Semper fi.

Gordon handled our complex modification of custody case very well. Not only did we get a great result, he was judicious with our expenses and was able to help us create the most efficient strategy for our resources. Bend is very limited in good family law attorneys and Gordon is definitely one of the best in town. Highly recommend.

Gordon took care of my case with great care. He did an amazing job, and exceeded my expectations. In the end, I was able to get what I wanted, which was what was fair. I am very happy to have 50/50 custody of my daughter. Gordon was able to keep pressing for what was fair. We didn't give in, and the end result was awesome! Thanks.
