Gordon Tilden Thomas & Cordell LLP is a trial practice firm engaging only in litigation and litigation-oriented advice.
We are trial lawyers. We limit our practice to litigation-oriented advice and the preparation and trial of complex civil cases. Our practice emphasizes three areas: business litigation, insurance recovery, and personal injury litigation on behalf of plaintiffs and defendants.
Small Firm Efficiency, Large Firm Quality and Responsiveness
Prior to forming GTT&C in 1996, our founding lawyers practiced at two of the country’s premier large firms, Perkins Coie and Covington & Burling. We are not a traditional “pyramid”-structured firm. The core of our firm is made up of seasoned litigators who can work efficiently from the outset of each case. As a result, our clients never pay for what amounts to the training of junior lawyers.
