Richard always wanted to be a lawyer. He grew up watching his father—a well-respected Chicago attorney—stand up for the rights of the wrongfully injured and disadvantaged against some of the most powerful corporate law firms in town.
After earning his law degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, Richard specialized in commercial litigation. He represented insurance companies against accident victims in state and federal courts at the trial and appellate levels. “This is where I really learned to dissect a case,” he says. “To anticipate and neutralize the strategies used by my opponents and get the best results for my insurance company clients.”
But Richard’s true calling was to help the "underdog"— the accident victim whose physical injuries and legal rights the insurance companies were so adept at sidestepping. He wanted to use his experience and knowledge of insurance company strategy to protect and preserve the dignity and the rights of injured individuals.
So he opened Gordon Law Offices, Ltd. “I didn’t want to answer to anyone else about the care of my clients,” he explains. “They should get the best possible attention and be top of mind for our staff. They should always know what’s happening—and that we’re as concerned about them as we are about their case."
Richard has a record of success, earning his clients millions in settlements and being recognized as both a Super Lawyer and one of Chicago's Top Forty under 40 attorneys to watch. He represents individuals in complex personal injury lawsuits and professional workers’ compensation claims.The results they see, combined with Richard’s passionate approach, lead clients to return to him for their legal needs. They also send their family and friends to Gordon Law Offices. Even opposing attorneys respect Richard’s skills enough to refer their own clients to him.
If these clients and colleagues trust Richard, isn’t it worth a conversation to learn if he is the right representative for you?
Robert K. Albrecht, Associate
“From day one, I prepare each case as though it will go to trial. That kind of thoroughness serves us well, because we will be more than ready for whatever happens: a judge and jury, or the best possible settlement."Learn More
Robert has spent his career specializing in personal injury and wrongful death cases. “I believe that the law is there to help people who are harmed by the neglect of others,” he explains.
Robert has always been attracted to trial work. “I enjoy connecting with juries and have been successful in showing them why they should side with my client,” he says.
“At Gordon Law Offices, I have the resources to dig deeply into my clients’ situations,” Robert explains. “This starts by listening with genuine concern. Next, I use every detail to build a strong foundation for our case. I use this structure to represent my clients and maximize their recovery.”
Robert earned his law degree from The John Marshall School of Law, where he was awarded a Certificate in Trial Advocacy – a distinction presented to fewer than three percent of all law students. While in law school, Robert clerked for the Illinois Appellate Court and the Illinois Attorney General.
