EXPERIENCED AND CARING STAFF
Taking step to start bankruptcy is stressful and scary. It was great to work with a knowledgeable and caring attorney, Rafael Gorski and his wonderful assistant, Caron. They helped make my decision a smooth and as much as possible, a stress free process. Rafael and Caron were there to answer any questions and concerns I had, along the way. Highly recommend them if you need assistance.

Steller Professionalism
From start to finish, Rafal Gorski and Caron were absolutely CARING professionals. They took into consideration my work schedule, covid restrictions and the details of my overall debt. It was smaller than usual debts and after talking to a few attorneys; wasn't sure if anyone would even look at what I needed. They cleared up an abundance of confusion on the process and timeframe of the bankruptcy process. Every step was explained, simplistic and exactly the way I expected each stage to go which was HUGE for me. Not to mention the communication is beyond what I thought I would get. I hope to never have to do this again, BUT if I did- I wouldn't go to anyone else. Rafal and Caron are an excellent team and I'm grateful they were the team that helped me.

Rafal is an excellent Bankruptcy Attorney. He and Caron were both very professional and handled my case in an expert fashion. Rafal & Caron walked me through the process with ease. Anytime I called, I always got right through and my questions were answered quickly and in terms that a layman could understand. I was always made to feel like I was a priority and not just a client signing the check. I was always told what to expect, so there were not any surprises. Their prices were reasonable, and in the middle of this horrendous pandemic, that was much appreciated! I would highly recommend Mr Gorski's Law Office for your Bankruptcy needs!

Greatest Law Practice around
All persons in the firm provides personal service to each and every client handling all aspects of your case from inception to resolution. Caron, legal assistant, is a wonderful person, and great person to work with. She explains any legal issues as they arise. She keeps you informed about the status of your case, promptly returns phone calls and emails. No one could possibly go wrong working with this crew. No matter what problems I ran into Caron always made me laugh and I felt better after talking to her.

Excellent, efficient lawyer!!!
My husband and I hired Rafal to do our bankruptcy. Within 1 minute of sitting down with him, I knew, without a doubt that he was the perfect one for the job! He isnt just professional, he treats you like he's your friend. He consistently shows he has a 101 percent vested interest in you, not just as a client, but as a person!!!!!

The Best!
This guy is the best Bankruptcy attorney in the Tacoma area, and his fees are very reasonable, he should probably charge 3 times as much but thankfully he doesn't. If you are looking for an honest, accurate, resourceful lawyer who knows how to get the job done... he's the one. Also very personable, empathetic, and will put you at ease on your day in court.

9 Stars!!!!!
Five stars is just not enough for the professional and emotional support I got from Lawyer Gorski. He and his staff made the unfortunate necessity to file for bankruptcy an almost pleasant experience. Almost, because filing is not an easy decision to make. I felt he really cared and was there to help me. To anyone in need of a lawyer who gives a damn I suggest you call him for a free consultation. Thanks a million to him and his wonderful staff!!!

Incredible!
Rafal has been nothing short of helpful in this time of need. Being young and inexperienced, he was able to explain things to me that I didn't understand and he was able to help me and encourage me along the way. Not only has he completed this process for me with ease, he made it so there was no stress or anxiety about it. His team in the office as well were so kind and making sure I had everything I needed to make this unpleasant thing in life go by quickly without hassle. I appreciate every single thing that they have done from giving my daughters stickers every time I had to come In from giving me recommendations to where I should go to help build my credit. They are incredible and I recommend you come here so you can experience this as well!

Bankruptcy Case
Rafal Gorski and his staff are amazing. Caron made me feel very welcomed with the first phone call with her. I was scared to file bankruptcy, but I really had not choice. I met with Rafal and he assured me it was the right thing to do, and he would handle everything. Then I met with Rebecca and she is amazing also. I highly recommend this office. Thank you Rafal, Caron, Rebecca!

Amazing Attorney!!
I want to start be Thanking Mr. Gorski and his wonderful staff with my Bankruptcy case! You guys made this experience so much easier than I could have ever imagined! I consulted with another attorney but their fee was ridiculous and they wanted a lot up front and big payments. My good friend told me about Mr Gorski and I thought what else do I have to lose. I am now happy to say Hired him and they got the job done and gave me wonderful advice. I am just waiting for my Discharge from the courts! Thank you again for all your Hard Work, Mr Gorski and Staff!!

Wonderful experience!
It was a great experience working with Rafal. I was on the brink of losing it all, but then I was introduced to Rafal. He got straight to the point and got down to business. I don't think I could have gotten things done with out him. I was very impressed with his work! I highly recommend contacting him if you are in search of a great attorney!

Great lawyer and a blessing just at a time I needed help
This was my first and hopefully last bankruptcy. I came in at a time when my wages were being garnished and Rafal took imediate action. The best part was that he was understanding when I explained my financial situation stating that it's just about impossible to save up money to pay my whole lawyer fee. I thought I was stuck with no way out at all...Just when all hope looked bleak he said he would be okay with taking payments. I went to another lawyer and she wanted $1,000.00 all up front which left me thinking there was no answer because she told me no lawyer would take it in payments. So with collections closing in on me faster than a flood I was able to get things moving with Rafal with urgency and I'm very thankful for that! I now have a new start and never imagined I would be in my great situation I am in now. If you're looking for a lawyer that will seriously take care of you and want one that cares rather than one that sees you as a number then go with him. He is far more than fair! James T.

Mr. Rafal Gorski and his staff are the ONLY legal professional's to turn to in your need for assistance and expert advice.
To All and the Board of Legal Assistance: Mr. Rafal Gorski and his staff are the ONLY legal professional's to turn to in your need for assistance and expert advice. We had an unexpected financial crisis and visited Mr. Gorski assisted us with our issues. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law, explains everything concerning your specific needs in such a way you understand, has a unique, wonderful sense of humor and doesn't make you feel uncomfortable in any way. Mr. Gorski's staff are extremely confident, kind and make you feel like family. This is such a rare combination with any professional these days. Other attorney's can be so stern, uncaring and leave you feeling with low self esteem for your uncontrollable circumstances. But not Mr. Gorski or his staff. You are treated with respect and they are caring people. I was never made to feel as if I was a bother when I called with questions. They were happy to assist me. I was impressed with the knowledge his staff inputted and realized Mr Gorski only hired personnel that had the same attributes as he. Mr. Gorski goes above and beyond for his clients and is HIGHLY recommended by me for your legal issues. Thank you, Mr. Rafal Gorski, and all your staff your assistance in our legal matter. We would not have felt so secure in such an important issue, without your assistance.
