This guy is not a lap dog nor a pit bull. Either alternative is stupid - for your defense. You want results. This guy is the Doberman: competence, results. Do not expect softness nor evasiveness with a soft hand. No, competence and results. This is not a soft game of "let's just work it out." In my past life I have been directly responsible for hiring hundreds of attorneys, mostly in the commercial litigation realm. Tom Gorman in his realm is at the top: not sloppy-soft but hard-edged intelligence. If it was a relative, go with Gorman. Do not expect comfort. You will get competence and superior results.
I highly recommend Thomas Gorman for your criminal defense attorney. His expertise and knowledge based on many years of practice got my criminal case dismissed. I would definitely use Mr. Gorman again if needed.
Three times a charm!! Tom was the third attorney hired for this particular defendants case.The first attorney took the defendants money and basically did NOTHING!! Learn from our mistakes, just because an attorneys name/face is plastered on every billboard and bus around town, doesn't mean they are credible. The second attorney didn't have the backbone to withstand the venomous attacks from the prosecutor (known to us as the "she devil"), who went great lengths to try to lock this defendant away for life.
Thankfully, Tom was referred to us by a reputable California criminal defense attorney, who stated "if Tom can't get the job done, then no one can". He was absolutely right.
From the day I retained Tom, I was confident the defendant was in good hands. Tom is passionate and proactive about his work. Furthermore, he is one of few attorneys who actually cares about his clients; their case and well being throughout the process. Tom goes the extra mile to insure that justice is served!
Tom patiently coached the defendant and myself (loved one) right the way thru this arduous process. He continuously educated us about the court system, and politics governing the system in order to help us understand what was going on and why. He went out of his way to provide us sincere words of encouragement, and also recommended material to read, helping to keep our minds stable and positive. We thank you Tom!!!
Under the worst circumstances, cultivated a positive life changing experience.
Your client and I both recognize that he was blessed to have such extraordinary representation. Like the first review stated: "Best money I have EVER spent!!!"
Unequivocally, Tom Gorman is the best money I have ever spent on an attorney. First, I hired an attorney who talked a good game, but stole my money. Feeling a great sense of despair at losing all that money, having no attorney, and not wanting to further burden my family, I went with a public defender, who literally walked in the day I was scheduled for trial, never having spent more than 30 minutes talking to me. On that day, my case was dismissed and recharged.
I than hired Tom Gorman, and this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Tom came highly recommended from a close friend who is a public defender. She told me "If I were in your shoes, there is only one person I would consider to defend me," and that was Tom Gorman.
Tom took my case as spent countless hours making sure I understand the process, making sure I understood what the plan of attack was. Most importantly, Tom has taught me that I can hold my head up. He has always treated me with dignity. He knows every aspect of my case inside and out.
As one in the middle of this process, and understanding how many bad attorneys are out there, I cannot stress enough the importance of hiring a great attorney like Tom Gorman.
very easy process my lawyer did a fantastic job for me , all charges dropped :) great job
i was a complete fish out of water when it came to this process. Mr. Gorman, was knowledgable, very calming and a complete professional in handling my case. His knowledge of the court system in Yavapai county was invaluable in getting me the best deal that i could given my circumstances. i could not be happier with my choice of attorney, and will recommend and continue to use his services when necessary. He made a very stressful process seem fairly effortless. He was also able to secure me a deal that avoided the almost 5 years of prison that the state wanted to give me, but instead i was given probation and allowed to return to my home state and my life....
thanks again Tom, you were fantastic, i can't thank you enough
Tom Gorman is the best you will find he dives into your case and puts his all into your situation with wonderful results .
