The attorneys of The Gomez Law Firm gladly step into the ring for their clients when defendants don’t pay what’s fair. This boutique firm focuses on high-value and high-profile catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, trucking litigation and elder abuse. The willingness of the attorneys to go to trial combined with their attention to detail, impeccable service and results-driven approach have allowed the firm to obtain more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements since 2000.
Toughness alone, however, doesn’t win over juries. Rather, the firm’s attorneys like to believe it’s what in their hearts that sets them apart. As John Gomez, the firm’s founder and one of The Daily Transcript's 2011 Top Attorneys in Personal Injury, explains: “We get to know our clients as human beings so that we can credibly understand and communicate their stories. Their stories are our stories and our clients become our friends. The jury sees it and knows we truly care.”
Gomez, a Yale Law graduate, obtained a $106 million verdict in the highly publicized De Villers v. County of San Diego trial, one of the largest wrongful death verdicts ever in California, which led to his being named 2006 Consumer Attorney of San Diego’s “Trial Attorney of the Year." As such, Gomez is considered the consensus “go-to” trial attorney when it comes to high value injury and other cases. Also on the team are well-respected trial attorneys Jeremiah Lowe, James Iagmin, Jessica Sizemore, David Fox and Theresa Bowen, a former on-camera news reporter. The Gomez Law Firm’s team of award winning trial lawyers has a sterling track record of success.
San Diego looks to The Gomez Law Firm to take on the very biggest of cases. It is currently representing family members in a nationally prominent case involving the death of four people in a crash caused by a Lexus with a stuck accelerator.
The firm is also firmly committed to improving the lives of San Diegans outside the courtroom. This year, the firm’s attorneys volunteered for and contributed to causes and charities ranging from Special Olympics, challenged athletes, to children with autism spectrum disorders, and the Community Youth Athletic Center. Gomez served in 2009 as board president of La Cuna, a nonprofit dedicated to Latino children, and endowed a scholarship fund for La Raza Lawyers. He is currently president of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, and a former board member of the San Diego County Bar Association.
Whether it’s improving their clients’ lives one case at a time or making a difference one day at a time, the attorneys of The Gomez Law Firm have a unique combination of strength and heart that is tough to beat.
