“Smart, high energy and hard working trial attorney. I don't know how he does it.”

“Jack is an outstanding trial lawyer.”

“I have gone to Trial with Jack and he is a tremendous advocate!”

“It gives me great pleasure to have the opportunity to endorse attorney Jeffrey "Jack" Gordon. I have known Jack and worked with him for over 22 years and I say without hesitation, he's the finest lawyer I know. His work ethic and legal acumen are stellar and unsurpassed. Jack is a result-driven, focused and fearless litigator, fair and balanced, but never intimidated by his opponents. He has a compassion for defending the rights of the underprivileged and I wholeheartedly recommend him to any plaintiff who has a personal injury or medical malpractice claim. I am proud to be Jack's law partner.”

“I have known Jeffery Lee, or “Jack” Gordon since 1992. After witnessing his intellect, ethical standards, passion for law, and dedication to his client’s cases, I decided I had found my ideal firm partner. For the past 24 years, Jack has guided me with his wisdom and enthusiasm for justice. He has the accolades to show for his dedication and hard work. Jack is rated AV Pre-eminent by Martindale Hubbell, the highest rating an attorney can obtain in the areas of legal ability and ethical standards. He is also three-time Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer by the Florida Bar, Board Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Civil Trial Advocacy, and Board Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Civil PreTrial Practice Advocacy. He was chosen by The Legal News as among the top 3% of attorneys in the nation. He was also named as Lifetime Member to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. But I truly believe what is more impressive than his accomplishments are Jack’s authenticity and his genuine compassion for every client he encounters.”

“Excellent medical malpractice lawyer”
