From the moment Gordon started working on my case, I felt an immense weight had been lifted off my shoulders. He helped me fully understand the process and what to expect, listened to all of my concerns, and then worked diligently to see that my rights were protected. He was available at any time to talk, and above all, he brought a calming disposition to what was a very stressful time.– Matthew B.
