Tucson Attorney Dubbed as “Super Lawyer”

October 24, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Craig Gordon, managing partner for Bogutz & Gordon, PC, is in the top five percent of attorneys in Arizona according to Super Lawyers magazine, which publishes a list of outstanding lawyers who have been found to have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Gordon was one of three lawyers in the State of Arizona, and the sole recipient in Tucson, to be recognized in the category of Elder Law.

“The recognition of Craig’s work is a tangible reflection of something that Bogutz & Gordon’s clients have known all along – our attorneys are truly a distinctive choice in elder care law, offering exceptional service and consultation on a regular basis,” said Allan D. Bogutz, founding partner for Bogutz & Gordon.

“It does not surprise me to learn that Super Lawyers has chosen Craig as one of the best lawyers in the state, considering his extensive knowledge and background with retirement and disability issues,” said Bogutz.

Super Lawyers is published as a special supplement in leading newspapers and city and regional magazines across the country. Super Lawyers magazine, featuring articles about attorneys named to the Super Lawyers list, is distributed to all attorneys in the state or region, the lead corporate counsel of Russell 3000 companies and the ABA-approved law school libraries.

The broad range of sources used to obtain a large and representative nominee pool, the comprehensive data search on each candidate, the protocols used to evaluate nominees, the expert panel system, and the meticulous checks and balances built into the process are combined to select a “Super Lawyer.”

A certified specialist in estate and trust law by the state bar of Arizona, Gordon has practiced law with the firm since 1985. He has extensive experience in Medicaid/ALTCS planning, including Special Needs Trusts, and has been recognized as a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) by the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF). He is active in national and statewide elder law organizations, such as the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) and the Senior Rights PAC.
