& Gordon, P.A. is the firm to choose. We apply our reputation and

Proven Legal Strategies for Success
On dark days and joyous ones, our lawyers stand ready to provide the advice
you need to address the challenges you face. Our lawyers recognize that
a legal strategy must reflect the unique needs of our clients and their
cases. To be effective is to be nimble. A measured approach to a board
room presentation or family law mediation may be different than a hard
charging litigation strategy when defending a criminal case or pursuing
a personal injury matter. To be effective, our lawyers are able to both
pursue opportunities to cooperatively resolve conflict while building
a strategy to effectively fight cases when conflict can't be avoided.
No law firm can guarantee individual case results and we can't either,
but we can guarantee our effort, energy and experience. Our aim is to
apply equal energy to matters large and small, create opportunities to
resolve cases, inform clients of the risk and reward of various approaches
and create outcome oriented strategies to accomplish our clients'
objectives. Sometimes these goals are reached through cooperative approaches.
Other times, these results are secured through courtroom battles. Either
way, our lawyers apply their attention, energy and intellect to mitigate
risk and realize reward for our clients.
Proudly Serving Clients Throughout the Northern New England Areas
We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to a wide range of legal matters
on behalf of our individual and institutional clients. With lawyers in
nearly 20 different legal practice areas, we are able to respond and react
quickly to the needs of our diverse client base. To be a full service
law firm is to recognize that our practice areas often intersect. Business
representation occasionally requires civil litigation. Divorce cases occasionally
call for the advice of a criminal lawyer. Personal injury cases require
the attention of estate planning attorneys. Under one roof, our team of
legal professionals is equipped to respond in kind to the diverse needs
of dynamic clients.
We find that thorough preparation improves opportunities to creatively
resolve cases and, when resolution is impossible, ensures effective courtroom
presentation. We apply ourselves to avoiding the expense and uncertainly
of courtroom litigation. However, we also recognize that there are times
when that is impossible. Our lawyers are battle tested on their feet in
court and ready to put their best foot forward on your behalf.
