Established, Trusted, & Experienced Lawyers in Chesterfield

Our History

The law firm of Gordon, Dodson, Gordon & Rowlett is one of the oldest in Chesterfield County. The firm’s history dates to 1958 when Lee R. Gordon (1929 – 1987) opened his law practice. The expanding law office became Gordon, Garner & Dodson in 1967 when John E. Dodson joined the firm. Steady growth continued, and in 1980, Thomas L. Gordon, Lee’s oldest son, joined the practice and the firm name changed to Gordon, Dodson & Gordon.

The firm known today as Gordon, Dodson, Gordon & Rowlett, is reflective of the continuing partnership of Thomas L Gordon and Randy B Rowlett, who joined the firm in 1998. In addition to the partners, attorneys now associated with the firm are David S. Clements, Donald E. Gulledge, William R. Keown, Ryan T. Spetz, Todd E. Perry, Jaclyn E. Murphy, and K. Brent Jones. Our strong support staff includes one paralegal with over 40 years legal experience and eight other assistants.
