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.

Michael handles all of my legal affairs, from drafting celebrity endorsement, broadcast and design contracts, to protecting my intellectual property rights. He especially shines when dealing with my many “unusual” situations. He is able to quickly grasp the facts and explain the legal issues involved in a clear and concise fashion.

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.

I have used Jack for every employment-related matter involving my career for more than a decade. He always gets the best possible results. I’ve gone through a number of lawyers in my time, but Jack has been the best. I am completely satisfied with his work. He stays in constant communication with his clients and I trust him completely. I refer others to Jack and will continue to do so.
