An engaging and accomplished trial attorney, Harrison Gordon is one of the nation's leading practitioners of modern personal injury law. His resolute approach to the law has resulted in a remarkable record of successful verdicts and settlements for his clients. He was chosen by the Attorney General of New Jersey to be a member of the Tobacco Litigation Team representing the State of New Jersey against the tobacco industry that resulted in an historic $7.6 billion settlement. He and his firm have spearheaded litigation in a number of high profile cases, including the Pan Am 103 disaster, and the Dupont Plaza Hotel Fire in Puerto Rico. The West Orange native launched his own practice only two years out of law school. "I started from scratch," says Gordon. Gordon is also known for his expertise in brain injuries, and many of his clients include victims of such trauma. Indeed, Gordon & Gordon (his brother Michael who practices in environmental and toxic tort is the other half of the firm's name) which in many respects resembles the litigation firm of his longtime friend, the late tort legend Melvin Belli. Gordon's firm handles matters involving injuries and death from motor vehicles, product liability, professional malpractice, toxic torts, injuries from over the counter prescriptions drugs, as well as mass disaster claims such as those stemming from major fires, airplane crashes and environmental contamination - and he is knowledgeable in all those areas. The reception room of Gordon's West Orange offices is adorned with framed checks of seven and eight-figure settlements -- "That's our track record, and we are proud of that." Today Gordon serves as the managing partner of his seven-attorney firm, while continuing to represent individual clients. Gordon is a resident of Livingston.
