The Alaska Law Firm


Hughes Gorski Seedorf Odsen & Tervooren was founded in 1939, 20 years before Alaska's statehood. Located in Anchorage, the firm grew with Alaska by building a solid reputation for professionalism. Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, our founding members served territorial residents and businesses in real estate, fishing, timber, mining, transportation and construction.

The 1960s was a decade of expansion and bustling growth for the new state and for our law firm, as well. With an ever increasing population, oil discoveries in Cook Inlet and Prudhoe Bay and the challenge of statehood, Alaska provided unique and interesting legal challenges.

Growing And Adapting — Always Meeting Our Clients' Needs

The firm adapted to a decline in the economic cycle of the state in the 1980s and early 1990s by taking advantage of the efficiencies afforded by rapid advances in information technology during that same period, and centralized over the years to our current location in Anchorage, Alaska. The emergence of Anchorage as an international commercial, financial and transportation hub allows us to serve clients efficiently and effectively throughout Alaska, in the contiguous United States, and internationally.

As Our Name Has Changed, Our Commitment To Quality Has Remained Constant

In 2005, the firm relocated to the top floor of the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation building at 3900 C Street in Anchorage, where we continued to earn recognition as one of Alaska's top tier Alaska firms. The hallmark of our success has always been high standards of legal professionalism, ethical integrity and an unwavering commitment to excellence. The majority of our attorneys have been practicing law in Alaska for 20 years or more.
