About Me

Aggressive Advocacy.  Proven Results.


The Gorman Law Firm is the aggressive advocate you need in your corner when you are faced with any criminal or quasi-criminal charges or the loss of your license. With Scott A. Gorman, you get the benefit of working with an attorney with the big law firm credentials, pedigree, experience, and proven track record but without having to foot the big firm price tag. Also, unlike multi-attorney firms where the only contact you may have with your attorney is the initial consult or when you meet him or her in court for the first time, you can rest assured that Mr. Gorman will meet with you as necessary, spend as much time as necessary, and walk you through each step of the difficult process in which you find yourself. Unlike other firms, you will not be a cog in his machine; instead, you will be an integral part of his family of clients for whom he cares enough to fight as hard as if he were fighting for himself or his actual family members. Call Mr. Gorman for a free consultation today to discuss your rights and find out how you can put him to work for you.


 


Mr. Gorman’s practice areas include, but are not limited to, DWI matters, Criminal Law, including but not limited to matters involving Theft, Violent Crimes, Juvenile Matters, Domestic Violence Matters, Probation Violations, Federal Crimes, Drug Crimes, Sex Crimes, White Collar Crimes, and Homicides.

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Scott at a two day DUI seminar in Los Angeles. He impressed me with his knowledge of DUI and the science behind how to defend DUI cases. I would recommend anyone facing a DUI charge in his area to give him a call.
