Not Just a Family Matter

Family law often intersects with other legal matters. Divorce agreements can lead to financial strain and a person’s immigration status can complicated things even further. Attorney Ruth Gorman and the staff at Gorman Law Firm have the diverse expertise you need to solve all your legal battles in one place. In addition to family law, we deal with immigration, criminal defense, traffic violations, and personal injury. Our Certified Public Accountants can also assist with your accounting and financial needs through Gorman Consultants, Inc.

Get the Support You Need

At Gorman Law Firm, we understand that seldom does a family legal matter end with signing a piece of paper. That’s why we provide resources for the emotional and financial collateral you may be struggling with in the wake of your case. Through our nonprofit El Centro Hispano Foundation, we seek to support our clients practically and spiritually—because we care about the person, not just the outcome.
