Value to Clients

"My client philosophy centres around providing exceptional legal representation and prioritizing the well-being and interests of my clients. I understand and value the customer service side of legal work and do what I do because I find great joy in helping others solve their issues. I want to be known as a trusted lawyer who clients feel comfortable dealing with as they know they will be valued and have their legal needs met."

When he is not in the office, his greatest passions revolve around exploring mountains and traveling. Following his completion of law school, Jordan went to the Himalayas in Nepal to scale mountains and to teach English to young Buddhist monks. In addition to his mountain pursuits, he enjoys golf, basketball, and playing the guitar.
