Testimonials

For more than 25 years, Michael has been my personal and business attorney. Recently, Michael identified the critical issues in a very unique land use development/re-zoning project and then crafted a very detailed contract which completely protected my interests.

Jack Gordon guided our company and its Board of Directors through a series of very delicate situations involving employment matters relating to our senior executives. He investigated and addressed all the necessary issues. His help in navigating these challenges brought about a series of successful resolutions. His professionalism and knowledge were invaluable.

Harry understands business issues, not just the legal side of business. And whenever I call him, I get a response right away. If a contract needs to be written, it happens. That day.

Harry and I worked out a very complex and challenging technological agreement on behalf of Seagram and DuPont with a reluctant third party venturer. Despite the strong potential for conflicts of interest and several seeming stalemates, Harry made it work, and work well.
