Customer Reviews

Andrew and his staff are always professional and friendly. Andrew handled my family trust, and even though we only have a small estate, we were always treated with full respect. Thank you Andrew and the staff of Gorman & Jones!

Thank you Mr. Gorman for your professional, and outstanding work with our family matter. You handled everything in a timely and thorough manner. We highly recommend you to anyone in need of your legal services. The Campos Family

If not for Andrew Gorman and the entire law firm, my inheritance would have been lost due to the greed of another. I am forever grateful for their representation, attentiveness, kindness and competency.

He misapplied the legal definition of A/B Trust and allowed my Dad’s second wife to take the Family Trust assets. He did not follow up on the Trust and took fees that were described as Trust free legal advice, but then would not give the pre-paid legal advice to the beneficiares. Did not return phone calls. Did not answer emails. Did not provide any service.

I know first hand that the negative review is that of the losing opposing party in my probate case. Andrew Gorman and his law firm provided me with outstanding legal representation to which I am forever grateful. I can tell from interactions that he is well respected by the Judges and other lawyers.

Unresponsive. Failed to return calls. Failed to file proper paperwork.

Worst attorney I ever hired.

never kept me informed, went and signed agreements without my knowledge, never returned phone calls, very unprofessional

Throughout my life, I have retained many attorneys and law firms. With Gorman & Jones, PLC I am happy with the service, attention and detail Mr. Gorman and the other attorneys and staff provide.

Every time I need Mr. Gorman’s services, I have peace of mind that my issues will be taken care of.

I am happy to say that I will always have Mr. Gorman as my Estate Planning lawyer.
