how to prepare their cases
and what results to expect.
But there are the more
unusual cases, like the man
who 50 years ago had been
convicted of assault. He
wanted Mr. Gordon to sue
because, he told the lawyer,
"my life has been adversely
affected by this wrongful
conviction."
Another visitor to Mr.
Gordon's office was a man
who insisted his brother had
absconded with money in-
herited from their father,
who, the visitor said, owned
half a Mississippi town.
Mr. Gordon has his share
of "unsavory characters."
He remembers one man who
came in insisting he needed
help in getting a permit to
carry a concealed weapon.
Then Mr. Gordon learned
the man had a prior convic-
tion.
Often, husbands and wives
seeking divorce turn to the
Dixieland lawyer. "I'll see
couples walking by," he
said. "Suddenly one person
will go one way, and the
other will come into my of-
fice and want to talk about a
divorce while the partner is
out looking around."
"Some of these cases,
there's just nothing you can
do," he said. "So I try to give
constructive suggestions,
even if I can't help."
He even has the patience
for those who come in only to
complain, like the visitors
convinced all the problems
in the world are the fault of
lawyers.
"I'll just listen to them,"
he said.
About 10 percent of those
with whom he meets will
hire him for a court case. Mr.
Gordon considers this a
reasonable figure. "If an at-
torney speaks free at a
meeting and 10 percent of
the audience retains his ser-
vices, that's a pretty fair
amount," he said.
His busiest seasons are
generally September-June

and January-April, Mr. Gor-
don said. During those
times, he may see a line of
visitors four-to-five deep
waiting to speak with him.
A member of Temple Shir
Shalom, Mr. Gordon said he
believes many of those who
come to his office simply
don't understand their
rights under the law and
how to go about pursuing
those rights.
"A lot of people don't know
if they have a case, and they
think you have to have a
case to come into a lawyer's
office, " he said. "Or maybe
they can't take the time off
to come to the office, or they

About 10 percent
will hire him for a
court case.

don't want to thumb through
the Yellow Pages to find
somebody's name. But
they'll come to me because
I'm there and I'm
available."
Mr. Gordon said his col-
leagues often "give me a
quizzical look" when they
hear he practices on
weekends at the Dixieland
Flea Market. But he's never
heard any negative reac-
tions.
Holiday cards fill Mr. Cor-
don's week-day office, now in
Southfield. Many of them
were sent by visitors he met
with at Dixieland. He's also
received gifts from former
clients, but there's nothing
quite like a return visit from
someone who once came to
his office with a sad story, he
said.
"Somebody will come in
and say, 'Remember when I
came in here and told you
my employer wasn't giving
me my money, and you told
me to do such-and-such?
Well, I did it and now every-
thing has worked out,' " he
said.
"That's what I like to
hear." El
