The attorneys of The Gomez Law Firm gladly step into the ring for their clients when defendants don’t pay what’s fair. A boutique firm focusing on high-value and high-profile catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, trucking litigation and elder abuse, in the last 12 months the firm’s attorneys obtained five jury verdicts in excess of $1 million, including a jury verdict in excess of $13 million. 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 $170 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 2010 Top Attorneys in Personal Injury explains it, “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 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.
He is joined by Robert Hamparyan, the 2008 “Trial Attorney of the Year.” Rounding out the team are long-time and well-respected trial attorney James Iagmin, also a Transcript 2010 Top Attorney in Personal Injury, former defense firm partner Laura Sasaki, employment lawyer Jeremiah Lowe 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 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 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’s also a vice president 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.
