About Us
Hughes Gorski Seedorf Odsen & Tervooren, LLC is anchored in the bedrock of Alaska’s history, having grown with Alaska — from its days as a territory to the present. For generations, Alaskan businesses, professional practices, and individuals have relied on Hughes Gorski as the first choice in the Great Land for legal help. The firm’s attorneys have formed Alaska’s businesses, drafted its contracts, litigated its disputes, represented its citizens in domestic matters, formed its estates, dissolved its businesses and walked its citizens through probate. Hughes Gorski truly is the Alaskan Law Firm.

The recognition of Hughes Gorski Seedorf Odsen & Tervooren, LLC as the gold standard for Alaska law firms extends beyond the boundaries of the State. For more than 75 years, national and international insurance companies, oil corporations, manufacturers, retailers, and national coordinating counsel have also turned to Hughes Gorski. Many Fortune 200 companies from these industries continue to seek out the advice, guidance, and legal support of Alaska's most storied firm and Hughes Gorski is on the "short list" of go to firms for many national counsel.

Every Hughes Gorski attorney is experienced in handling bet the farm litigation and high stakes transactional work for national and local clientele. As a result, the firm’s attorneys have earned the highest peer recognition for their legal knowledge, ability, performance, and integrity. Many of the attorneys have been rated with the highest AV Preeminent* peer review rating for ethical standards and legal ability and many have been recognized by their peers through inclusion in Best Lawyers in America, Chambers, Alaska SuperLawyers and more. Whether handling multimillion dollar product liability or oil tax litigation, providing financing opinions and assistance with government licensing, or helping local Alaskans with their family law, estate planning and probate needs, the firm’s attorneys have earned the trust of a long list of clients.

*AV Preeminent and BV Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell ratings fall into two categories: legal ability and general ethical standards.
