Gordon Quan, Managing Partner of Quan, Burdette & Perez, is nationally recognized for his expertise. He is Board Certified in Immigration and Nationality Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and has been named one of the Best Lawyers in America.
During his childhood, Gordon’s parents owned a corner grocery store where Gordon and his four siblings worked after school. He attended Franklin Elementary, Edison Junior High, and graduated from Milby High School. Gordon received his B.A. degree in History and Government from the University of Texas at Austin, and upon graduation returned to Houston to teach in Houston Independent School District (HISD) schools. While teaching, he pursued his Masters in Education at the University of Houston. As a teacher and Scout leader, Gordon counseled several underprivileged and troubled students. These experiences motivated Gordon to enroll in law school so he could help those in need. He graduated from the South Texas College of Law and became a lawyer in 1977.
As Gordon’s career grew, so did his desire to give back to the community. He has been involved in leadership positions with numerous civic and community organizations that have touched many lives. For the last several years, Gordon has served as President of the City of Houston’s Board of Trust, which has responsibility for overseeing charitable contributions to local organizations. He has also chaired a panel of the Grievance Committee of the State Bar of Texas helping to ensure that lawyers maintain high ethical standards. He currently serves as an officer of his neighborhood association.
Above all, Gordon Quan has always been a person who cares deeply about others and has tried to make life better for all he works with.
Gordon and Sylvia Quan recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. Their daughters Caroline, Kristen, and Katherine attended Spring Branch and HISD Schools, and are all currently in college.
