Gordon Thompson Attorney Vision, Mission Statement & Values

I devoted my long legal career to protecting the rights of people accused of committing crimes.  I was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1979 and the Arizona State Bar in 1982.  Before becoming a lawyer, I graduated from Harpur College and Syracuse University College of Law, both in New York.

I am a sole practitioner DUI & criminal defense attorney and I have helped over 5000 people charged with the commission of crimes to minimize the devastating impact of those charges on them and their families.  I represent clients in Maricopa & Pinal Counties and in other courts throughout Northern Arizona.


To continue developing new ways of helping my clients and their families to avoid or mitigate the devastating, life-altering consequences of a criminal conviction.

Mission Statement

To use my values and knowledge acquired through 44 years of criminal law experience to get the best possible result for each of my uniquely different clients.

My Values

  • Responsibility

    Being a sole practitioner means I alone am responsible for all aspects of each client’s case.  I do not employ attorney associates who know little about each client’s case.

  • Knowledge

    Knowledge obtained from 44 years’ experience to remember something which may have happened many years ago which could help, or hurt, a current client’s case.  It also means knowing the legal world is constantly changing and I must keep up with the change as well.

  • Viewing the Case Through My Client’s Eyes

    Each client is unique and so the starting point of every case is listening to my client’s description of their circumstances and thoughts about the case.  It also means keeping my clients constantly informed about the status of their case as well as promptly and courteously responding to their questions.

  • Keeping Legal Fees Affordable

    People charged with crimes often suffer unanticipated financial losses.  Helping my clients mitigate the consequences of a criminal charge means not adding to their financial burden. My fees are below average.
