Gregory A. Gordillo has focused his law practice on employment related matters since he graduated in the top 5% of his class at Cleveland Marshall College of Law. After a successful eight-year association with one of Ohio's largest law firms, Greg opened his own law offices in Cleveland, Ohio. He has successfully represented both employers and employees by providing counseling to avoid litigation and advocacy when litigation was inevitable.

Greg is a nationally recognized lawyer. He has published numerous articles on trial procedure and employment laws, and his work has been cited and relied on by the New Jersey Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which determines federal law for Connecticut, New York, and Vermont. He was one of only 30 trial lawyers selected from across the country to attend the American Bar Association's First National Trial Academy. He has also been invited to speak at trial tactics and employment law related seminars across the country.

Greg has been selected by his peers to be included in the 19th Edition of The Best Lawyers in America. Selection for Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprised of more than 4 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. The annual Best Lawyers publication has been described by The American Lawyer as "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."

Greg is a recognized leader among Ohio employment lawyers. For 2012 and 2013, Greg was selected to be included in the list of Ohio Super Lawyers. Super Lawyers selects attorneys using a rigorous, multiphase rating process. Peer nominations and evaluations are combined with third party research. Each candidate is evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Selections are made on an annual, state-by-state basis.

Since 2008, Greg has been a member of the Ohio State Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section Council. In 2012, he began serving as Chair of the Section that has more than 1,500 Ohio employment and labor lawyers as its members. Since 2009, he has served as a member of the Board of the Ohio Employment Lawyers Association. He has been the featured speaker in the Cleveland Bar Association's Trial Superstar Series, and he is a past Chair of the Cleveland Bar Association's Labor and Employment Law Section. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Cleveland State University's Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, and he is a frequent speaker throughout Ohio on many different employment and litigation topics.

In the fall of 2005, Greg was named as one of the Masters of the Bench for the Cleveland Employment Law Inn of Court. The Cleveland Employment Law Inn of Court is a chapter of the American Inns of Court. With approximately 80 members, the Cleveland Employment Inn of Court is the only bar organization in Northeast Ohio that is solely comprised of attorneys who practice employment law along with local judges and law professors. The Mission of the American Inns of Court is to foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility, and legal skills.
