This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Censure with conditions means the attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State places conditions on the lawyer's activities to try to prevent a reocurrence of the wrongful act. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Thomas’s comment: “Truly an unfortunate event which made me a much better and more attentive attorney. Some 18 years later, I still remember well what can happen from not communicating well and I am a far better person because of it (8-13-2013)”

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!!!

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.
