I tried to reach Mr. Gumlia by phone at least 6 times during my case and never once recieved a return phone call. He was very short with me while in court and just didn't seem to care. To his defense, he is a public defender with way too many cases at one time but, I would definitely recommend doing anything (legal) to get the money together to hire outside representation. Mr Gumlia won't take the time to fight for you and will pretty much accept any deal the DA puts in front of him so he can move on to the next case. He is just too busy to make you and your case a priority.
