I’m pleased to announce that I have formed a new firm with one of my oldest friends. The new firm, Barr & Young, will remain in our current office in Danville and we will continue to do what we have always done – estate and trust litigation, estate planning and administration, elder abuse litigation, and conservatorships. To our existing practice, Gordon adds the complementary expertise of securities and civil litigation.
Gordon has been one of my closest friends since junior high school. Gordon went to Saint Mary’s college where he played four years of collegiate rugby before attending law school at University of San Francisco. Prior to forming Barr & Young, Gordon spent his entire career at one firm – Keesal, Young & Logan in San Francisco. Gordon’s bio is available here: https://www.barrattorneys.com/gordon-young/
Gordon has tried and arbitrated over 75 cases to verdict for investment advisers, Wall Street banks and broker-dealers. Many of these cases involved claims of breach of fiduciary duty and violations of the prudent investor rule — expertise that supplements our trust litigation and elder abuse practice.
Gordon is an active member of Santa Maria Catholic Church. He lives in Orinda with his wife and five children.
We are delighted to have Gordon aboard and look forward to introducing him to clients and friends.
