Gorman Law was founded by Leta Gorman, an experienced civil trial attorney with more than 20 years of litigation and court room experience.
Leta is an AV Preeminent Attorney (Martindale-Hubbell) with extensive experience handling cases involving complex business, personal injury, contract, product liability, and construction defect claims. She has represented individuals, banks, hospitals, developers, and general contractors as well as manufacturers of component parts, asbestos-containing products, automobiles, pesticides, heavy equipment, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices, to name just a few.
Leta is skilled at efficiently staffing and managing all aspects of litigation to ensure her clients receive the highest quality work without surplusage and unnecessary expense. Leta works with her clients and their insurers to provide early initial case analysis, evaluations, litigation plans, and budgets. She collaborates with her clients by providing appropriate updates and analyses as each case progresses. She strives to identify appropriate case resolution goals as early as possible and to adjust further strategies to reach those goals creatively and economically. If a case cannot be resolved without trial, Leta's clients know they have a skilled, competent, and talented trial lawyer on their side.
She has extensive trial experience in both state and federal courts throughout the Pacific Northwest having successfully tried (first chair) more than 28 bench and jury trials. She has handled hundreds of class actions, arbitrations, and mediations.
