    Gooch is very poor on docketing appearance dates. He's had this weakness all along forcing clients to go after him for blowing the case, because he didnt appear or file on time. I was working with a 300 day deadline, and Me, the client, had to call in and remind him that a most important and key filing was due that very day.
    I travel long distances to his office, and there were two occasions when I was told to be at his office, then when I show up, "oh, didnt my people call you, there was change in scheduling", hence for me loss of one days pay each time.
    There is another view, where Gooch supposedly told a client he talks too much. He told me the same ting. It saeems that when you call him on his lack of attention to detail and to your case, he responds by attacking you, the client.
    Lastly, DO insist on a monthly accounting of all retainers paid, Ive paid him $27,500 as a retainer, and I have yet to get a monthly accounting from him, he was retained by me for 3 years. First case, I asked to go to trial, he said no, take a bad deal instead. I told him to void with the court - the bad deal signed the day before, and he said he wasnt going to do that, that I will need to hire another lawyer to do that for me??!! So the second case never went forward, I asked for a retainer refund, and was told there wont be one, too bad - no refunds!! Think about my experience before pulling out your checkbook and writing large sums on the check to him.

    Thomas William Gooch III’s response: “I am aware of who this client is. His comments are simply untrue. This particular client and I parted ways long before any filing deadline approached. He couldnt have been to upset as he kept hiring me for years for new matters. Retainers that have been earned are not returned. Im happy to discuss this directly with anyone without revealing confidential info of course”

    I took my case to Tom Gooch, and treated me with respect and kindness. He worked hard and when the case was settled, I was more than satisfied. I would recommend him to any one who needs a legal malpractice attorney.

    My past lawyer took advantage of me. Overcharged me for everything, even stamps! So when I hired Mr. Gooch, I was expecting to end the case with empty pockets. I was wrong! Mr. Gooch treated my case as a whole and didn't charge for every small detail. He is a quality lawyer and an honest man. I would recommend him and his law firm anytime!!!

    Thomas Gooch is an excellent litigator. I was impressed and his quick wit left my opponent's lawyer completely dumb-founded. A great show to watch. I love him!!

    Worth every penny! Having a lawyer of his caliber for that price was truly a blessing. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have hired Thomas.

    Do not hire this man or his firm! He took a $5000 retainer from me and promised my case would be filed. I didn't hear from him for months and then he just forgot about me! He called me back into his offices to go over my case facts again right before the time was up and when I got upset he told me I was talking too much and wouldn't get far with him with such a big mouth.
    The way this man treats his clients is a disgrace to the profession. Find another firm!

    Thomas William Gooch III’s response: “This is a false accusation published by a man just out of prison who I sent there. my retainer requirements are totally different so I know these are coming from the same person who has been reported to his parole officer.”

    Tom's not only a tough lawyer but he's funny as well. He did a fine job for me suing my lousy divorce lawyer and his parftner Gauthier about ripped the testicles off my ex hubby

    Mr. Gooch has handled over the years a threef legal matters for me including a very complicated law suit going on currently. He tenacious and tough. Even though he speaks bluntly he knows what he is doing and seems to take the tough cases
