Partner / Litigator / Mediator / Arbitrator
George Gordon passed away on May 11, 2016. He was an esteemed member of the family law bar, loved and respected by his peers, and our dear friend.
George hailed from Peterborough, Ontario, and was the fourth generation in a highly respected line of lawyers and jurists. George obtained Bachelors and Masters degrees from Queen’s University and his law degree from McGill. He was called to the bar of Ontario in 1981 and to the bar of British Columbia in 1985. George spent his entire career practicing family law. He articled with and then served as an associate of Karen Nordlinger Q.C., Barbara Nelson Q.C., and Terry Warren Q.C. In 1991, he became one of the founding members of Warren Aaron MacGregor & Gordon, a predecessor to our firm.
George established a reputation as a skilled courtroom lawyer who handled difficult cases with diligence and grace. Outside the courtroom, he was a loyal friend and an avid hockey player. His generosity, humanity, and compassion will be missed by all those who were lucky enough to have had the great privilege of knowing him.
