Toma Fitzgerald knows his team well.

It is a close-knit unit and includes his wife, Danielle, who manages the office and administrative tasks with assistance from Creea, Toma’s sister. Terry Lehman, Toma’s partner in the field and brother-in-law, rounds out the crew.

This arrangement works well for the family team because they like each other’s company. Fitzgerald is also mentoring his son and nephew in the home-based business as apprentices working toward becoming journeymen. He knows the drill – he started as a rookie plumber in a restaurant.

The entire family enjoys working and making their home in Maricopa.

“I love the small-town feel of Maricopa and value keeping the community spirit strong,” Lehman said.

“We want to be known as your first resource for the best quality plumbing service at a fair price,” Fitzgerald said.

He said 90 percent of My Maricopa Plumber business is repeat customers and referrals. They also reach out to include other new and existing homeowners in Maricopa.

“Building relationships is key to our business,” Fitzgerald said.

Fitzgerald is a master plumber with over 20 years of experience and is licensed, bonded and insured. An Army veteran, he also works with the Veterans Administration and has assisted in remodeling homes across Arizona for vets in wheelchairs.

  1. My Maricopa Plumber is my go-to for any plumbing issues. I have had Toma and his crew fixing different issues at my house several times. They are always professional, courteous, efficient and honest. The first time I used My Maricopa Plumber, I had received a quote for replacement of a bunch of parts- Toma came out to quote and said just one piece being replaced would fix the problem. That saved me money. After that, I knew I wouldn't call anyone else to help me. I can't recommend Toma and his crew more.
