The History Of Our Firm
Lawrence G. Gordon was licensed to practice in 1987 and is a former principal of Gordon & Gordon, Ltd., which was initially established in 1962 by his father, Justice Robert E. Gordon of the Illinois Appellate Court, who retired from the practice of law in 1996.
The firm of Gordon & Centracchio LLC was organized at that time and is a personal injury trial law firm devoted to representing individuals who have sustained injuries or death in and out of the workplace, which includes actions against insurance companies, trucking companies, manufacturers, hospitals, doctors and others.
Lawrence Gordon concentrates in workers’ compensation cases, and is a well-known practitioner in that area of the law, and many of his referrals are from other lawyers throughout the legal community. Mr. Gordon also concentrates in personal injury matters.
David R. Centracchio, who was a trial lawyer with Gordon & Gordon, was licensed to practice law in 1991 and concentrates on catastrophic personal injury matters. He has vast trial experience in other non-jury matters including commercial litigation. Mr. Centracchio has earned the respect amongst his peers as a dedicated, skilled and highly prepared trial lawyer who is not afraid to take a matter to trial. He is the recipient of many multimillion-dollar jury verdicts for clients who received catastrophic injuries, medical negligence or were killed due to the wrongful conduct of others.
Trust Your Case With Skilled Litigators
While the focus of our litigators has been crossing over into personal injury, commercial litigation provides a prospective that promotes an objective view of litigation and enables us to become one-of-a-kind litigators. We believe there is a great benefit to seeing all sides of any matter as it reduces tunnel vision that often prohibits litigants from clearly assessing their case. As a result of our litigation success, our clients have also entrusted us with a wide variety of transactional work.
While many cases are resolved outside court, we prepare all cases as though they will go to trial. Our lawyers will carefully evaluate whether it makes sense to take the case to trial, or whether you would be better served from accepting a settlement outside of court.
