From my very first contact with Steve, it was clear I was in highly capable hands. My landlord against tenant case was handled expertly at every step with professionalism. Steve handled my case in a very professional and competent manner. His extensive knowledge and advice regarding the law and negotiations with the opposing party were clear and effective and it is clear that he is a expert in the field. I felt my options were clearly explained and he made sure I understood the process. I would highly recommend his services. Amy
Landlord-Tenant is a small portion of my practice; usually cases are taken on only as an accommodation to a client. Working with Mr. Gordon has allowed me to take on cases which would ordinarily be time/cost inefficient. This assists me in my goal of being the “go-to” person for legal advice to my clients. His knowledge of Landlord-Tenant law allows me to feel confident in allowing him to handle my appearances. Mr. Gordon is fair and trustworthy. I would recommend him and his services. Victor
It is my distinct honor and pleasure to write this testimonial for Steven Gordon, Esq. As an attorney who does not normally practice in the housing courts, I found myself with an important client who needed sophisticated help with a landlord/tenant matter. I brought Steven in on the case and he immediately demonstrated a tremendous depth and breadth of knowledge and experience. He was a tenacious advocate for my client and helped resolve the matter fast and cost efficiently. I would recommend Steven to any attorney looking for assistance with a housing court matter. Gregg
Mr Gordon was fantastic in helping us collect our money. He was patient and walked us through the entire process, explaining clearly what would happen and how long the process would take. Any questions or concerns we had were responded to in a timely manner. We would certainly utilize his services in the future if needed. Scott
Mr. Gordon was respondent to any court paper work and was very familiar with the process. He won the case for us to have a tenant evicted who stopped paying his rent. Eric
