Each year, the CAALA Board of Governors reviews member submissions based on a variety of criteria: number of cases case; dollar amount obtained in each case and total for the year; and the significance for each verdict. Other factors considered are the individual's contributions and involvement in the trial bar. The awards will be presented at the annual CAALA Installation Dinner Dance at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 20, 2007.
Mr. Gordon earned his law degree from Loyola University in 1972. He is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of California, American Board of Trial Advocates and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America. Mr. Gordon is admitted in the State of California; the United States District Court, Central District of California; the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.
