A Legacy Of Service Built On Our Founders’ Ideals
Bogutz & Gordon, PC, has been proudly serving the Tucson, Arizona, area since 1984, providing sophisticated services to meet our clients’ estate planning and elder law needs. From the beginning, the goal was to help people in need.
In 1984, Allan Bogutz, who had served as Pima County Public Fiduciary, incorporated his own law firm. A few months later, Allan asked Craig Gordon, then working as an attorney at Southern Arizona Legal Aid (SALA), to join him, and the two combined forces. Both were deeply committed to helping people, especially those who cannot help themselves. Allan not only had served as public fiduciary, but he also had worked at SALA and served in the Peace Corps. Before joining SALA, Craig had used a federal grant from the Administration of Aging to develop a legal education and referral program for Senior Citizens in rural Iowa. With strong backgrounds in public service, these two lawyers brought a unique vision to the firm.
Allan and Craig went on to build a law practice centered on planning, serving and advocating. The succeeding 30+ years have seen Bogutz & Gordon, PC, prosper as one of the preeminent elder law firms in the Southwest. Both Allan and Craig have, for the most part moved on, but their goals and ideals carry on among the current staff of attorneys, care managers, paralegals and support staff.

We Serve A Diverse Clientele
Our firm advises families at all levels of wealth regarding how to pass whatever it is they cherish to the next generation and beyond. Likewise, we help clients assert their rights with regard to estates and trusts, and advocate for them in many different roles. For example, we guide executors in their duties and challenges. We help clients resolve disputes over wills and other estate matters.
The firm’s structure remains unusual among law firms. In the planning arena, we help clients with traditional estate planning needs, creating wills, trusts, and powers of attorney, as well as planning regarding benefits and taxes.
The firm also serves as “fiduciary.” A “fiduciary” is typically a person in a position of trust, one who is legally empowered to make decisions for other persons. In our case, the firm collectively works to serve clients as trustee, agent under power of attorney, guardian, conservator, and personal representative, making decisions in their best interests when they cannot, or carrying out their final wishes.
The firm is well-suited to advise and assist clients who are facing the realities of aging or disabilities, or recovering from injuries as a result of accidents or medical malpractice.
