On behalf of Gordon Law Offices, Ltd.   |  Nov 23, 2016   |  Firm News

The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin’s “Top 40 Attorneys Under 40 to Watch” list recognizes the state’s most talented and dedicated young attorneys.

CHICAGO, IL (November 30, 2016) – Gordon Law Offices is proud to announce that owner and managing partner Richard Gordon has been selected as one of Illinois’s “Forty Under 40” attorneys to watch for 2016. The annual list from Law Bulletin Publishing Company, publishers of Chicago Lawyer magazine and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, recognizes passion, success, dedication, and a desire to help community among the state’s most promising young attorneys.

To be considered for the honor, attorneys must be nominated by another attorney outside of their own firm and then are evaluated on a number of criteria, including the nominator’s reputation and the nominee’s experience, skill, and character.

“It’s an honor to be recognized amongst so many talented and respected attorneys,” said Gordon. “An award like this validates the work we’re doing for our clients in ensuring they have an advocate who will fight for them and achieve the outcomes they need.”

Richard Gordon is a 2002 graduate of Loyola University Chicago School of Law. After representing insurance companies against accident victims in state and federal courts early in his career, Gordon shifted to what he considers his true calling – helping the “underdog,” whose physical injuries and legal rights the insurance companies are so adept at sidestepping. He opened Gordon Law Offices so he could use his experience and knowledge of insurance company strategy to protect and preserve the dignity and rights of injured individuals.

In addition to being named on the “Top 40 Attorneys Under 40 to Watch” list, Gordon has been named a Super Lawyer by Thompson Reuters Illinois for the last nine consecutive years.
