I was born in Detroit, and raised in southeastern Michigan and northwestern Ohio, before moving to the desert southwest after graduation from college. I traded winter gray skies, cold and snow for sunshine warmth and annual withering summer heat. I have lived in Arizona since 1976, and graduated law school in 1983.

I am single, with three handsome & intelligent adult sons, and an eight-year old grandson, who keeps me busy trying to keep up with him. I  enjoy an active lifestyle, including: trave to new and interesting places; white-water rafting, camping and stream fishing for trout; playing and watching sports; reading and  talking with people, as I always want to better know and understand our world around us.

I am writing a review based on my personal experience with Mr. Gorski's law office.
I had a wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuit case Mr. Gorski handled for me. I was very pleased with the treatment from Mr. Gorski and his office. I was treated like family and as if I were the only case the were working on. That is how i felt. They were very professional, Knowledgeable, and attentive.

Excellent experience with Peter Gorski
Mr. Gorski represented me after an auto accident, and I am very pleased with the way he dealt with my medical providers and negotiated settlements. I'm sure I would not have had the same personalized care with any other firm. Mr. Gorski and his staff worked hard on my behalf so I could focus on recovery. I recommended Mr. Gorski to a colleague after her injury in an accident, and she was extremely pleased with Mr. Gorski's representation.
