Both Jeremiah Lowe and Theresa Bowen have followed the lead of John Gomez and the rest of the Gomez Firm in putting community service at the forefront.
This year, Lowe has focused his time to volunteer as a mediator with the nonprofit organization Restorative Justice Mediation Program, which helps both at-risk teen offenders and the victims they have harmed. He meets with offenders to help them to take responsibility for their actions and help them find a way to give back to the community. Lowe also works with the victims to help address their harms. It is a comprehensive program that restores justice, and benefits the community in a way the criminal justice system is not set up to do.
Last year, Bowen focused her community service efforts on Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the Lawyers Club Community Outreach Committee. In 2012, Theresa has committed to continue her service to those organizations. She will again help MADD raise money to fund the services it provides in San Diego County throughout the year by sitting on MADD’s planning committee for the 2012 Walk Like MADD event. She will also continue her work to improve the lives of women and children in our community through the Lawyer’s Club. In addition, Bowen will be inviting kids from the Juma Ventures youth development program to The Gomez Law Firm office to expose them to different professional career paths.
