I was referred to Randy several years ago by a mutual friend following a car accident. I had just begun a new job and Randy being sensitive to this, on our first meeting, came to my office after hours. Immediately, I was impressed with his professionalism, his friendliness his integrity and his genuine high degree of compassion. Throughout the next several months, Randy, without hesitation, always made himself available to answer any question I may have had. From fees to expenses and reimbursements, Randy explained everything in a clear and concise way. In the end, his efforts were successful.
Fast forward to 18 months ago and again, I was in need of legal representation. My first and only choice was to place a phone call to Randy. Again, his compassion and ability to clearly outline the path we’d need to take left no doubt in my mind he was the only choice. With his guidance and high degree of knowledge regarding the law, a positive outcome was achieved. Even after reaching a successful result, he continued to work to make sure that I received the maximum amounts available, including negotiating with insurance companies regarding potential claims for reimbursement.
On several occasions, I have referred others to Randy; all of whom were more than pleased with the results he obtained for them. Over the years, Randy and I have gotten to know each other on a personal level. It’s not just my privilege to know Randy as an attorney but also as a friend.

I am a former personal injury client of Randy's. Before I met Randy, I had contacted tens of lawyers who dismissed my claim after only a few minutes of conversation. However, when I first met with Randy he took the time to listen to my entire story. Afterwards, he explained all aspects of my case without using a ton of legal jargon. Randy was forthright and honest when he explained the positive and negative aspects of my case. He told me that he and his firm would do everything they possibly could for me -- and they did.
Throughout the litigation process, Randy and his staff kept me well informed of the goings on of my case. He became personally involved, such that the pain and suffering I felt appeared to become his own. Randy and I met on a number of occassion to develop the best strategy for reaching a positive resolution of my claim.
In the end, Randy's diligent efforts led to a very successful settlement of my claims. Anyone thinking of retaining the services of an attorney would be wise to give Randy Gordon a call.

I contacted Randy almost a year ago when a large corporation threatened and followed through with their threats to disrupt the smooth operation of my small business by reneging on a contract we had in place.
Randy, from the very beginning, listened to my story and asked the appropriate questions to see if my case was winnable. After my hour consultation, Randy had a firm grasp on the case and even laid out the strategy that he felt we needed to follow. A year later, the case was over and the strategy he laid out from our initial meeting did not detour one iota!
While I cannot comment on the case, and can say that I am thrilled with the outcome and the excellent representation I received.
If you are looking for an attorney who is dependable, reliable, and economical, look no further. Randy is a pit bull that will take your cause and make it his own.
When I need representation in the future, I will look no further than Randy Gordon.

I was referred to Randy Gordon by a good friend who told me he is the best. After meeting him I found him to be personable, caring and an expert in his field. He not only took my case information he explained everything to me in detail so that I understood what I was up against and how he could best represent me. He displayed excellence in his ability to work with the insurance companies, doctors and other practitioners. He and his staff kept excellent records and spreadsheets, outlining what had been spent, what I should be reimbursed, and what I could expect when we went to settlement and mediation. I highly recommend Randy for any personal injury case. When I hear of friends or acquaintances who have been hurt and need representation, I always refer them to Randy Gordon, he is the best!

I share an office suite with Randy and had the privilege of working with him on one of my personal injury cases this year. Throughout our association, Randy worked tenaciously to ensure we were able to obtain fair compensation for our client. His knowledge, experience and compassion are top notch. I highly recommend Randy to anyone looking for a caring, experienced trial lawyer for their own case and to other attorneys looking to associate on a case.
