  • A Consumate Professional
    i was a complete fish out of water when it came to this process. Mr. Gorman, was knowledgable, very calming and a complete professional in handling my case. His knowledge of the court system in Yavapai county was invaluable in getting me the best deal that i could given my circumstances. i could not be happier with my choice of attorney, and will recommend and continue to use his services when necessary. He made a very stressful process seem fairly effortless. He was also able to secure me a deal that avoided the almost 5 years of prison that the state wanted to give me, but instead i was given probation and allowed to return to my home state and my life....

    thanks again Tom, you were fantastic, i can't thank you enough
