Very professional
I am very pleased with my experience working with Mr. Gorton, he is very hardworking and professional and I would recommend his services. He helped me with a criminal defense matter and made the entire process as easy and painless as it could possibly be. He also kept me well informed of the process along the way, which is important because the legal system can be confusing and scary to ordinary people. Mr. Gorton understands that and does what he can.
