John Gomez Bullying
May 4 was Anti-Bullying Day. As a law firm, we are deeply committed to the fight to end bullying altogether. On May 4, we showed our support for victims of bullying and raised awareness by wearing our own custom-made “Bullying Stops Now” t-shirts. That text is made up of empowering and inspirational quotes. Our team members spread the message...
John Gomez Prayer Group
At Gomez Trial Attorneys, we have a fairly large group of very diverse employees. Some I know are religious. Some I suspect are not. Some I know are not. Still, as the leader of my firm, I thought it would be neat to offer a short prayer meeting...
John Gomez Question Of Faith
I write this from the veranda of my room in Costa Rica. It is Monday morning, my first full day here. I obtained a favorable jury verdict for a great family last Thursday. The trial outcome was not only very personally fulfilling, but it also confirmed my faith in God. And so, I thought, I would write about it...

Faith

John Gomez Faith
There is a bible verse I really like about faith. It’s Isaiah 1:17. It reads, “Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.” If you are my Facebook “friend”, you likely will read this verse on my cover photo. (If you’re not friend me!). I like...
John Gomez Attorney My Firm
In 2011, I spent 27 days attending Gerry Spence’s acclaimed “Trial Lawyers College” on a ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. The experience affected me profoundly as a human being and trial lawyer. We apply what I learned there to each of our cases every day. We are especially blessed to have the former President of Trial Lawyers College, Jude Basile,...
Attorney John Gomez Tip Housekeepers
Until recently, I tipped lots of people when I stayed in hotels. I would tip the bellman for bringing my bags up, the bartender for pouring a drink, the server for delivering my dinner, and the valet for driving my car half a block. There was one person, however, I didn’t even think about: the housekeeper who cleaned my...

Thanksgiving

John Gomez Thanksgiving 2017
This month features perhaps my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. When I was a kid, Christmas was my favorite. By far. I suppose that’s true for lots of kids. What kid doesn’t like toys and presents after all? And there is all the fun “magic” and build up that goes along with it. When I was a kid, I would get...
John Gomez Attorney Tough Choice Hard Lessons
Last night, after a full day of work and dinner with the kids, I sat on the couch and turned on the movie “Detroit.” The movie is based on the Algiers Motel incident during Detroit’s 1967 street riot. It portrays police misconduct and racial injustice in pretty stark and vivid terms. I had wanted to watch it from some...
John Gomez San Diego And Me
While Gomez Trial Attorneys handles cases nationally, I without question still consider San Diego home and myself a true “San Diegan.” My dad was in the Navy and so my early years were spent moving between different oceans and bases, including San Diego. We ended up here for good when I was around 10. We lived in Bonita where...
Attorney John Gomez Unity Divided Nation
I feel compelled to share my views on unity in a divided nation. I’m not sure I can remember a time when our nation felt so divided. Friendships ended and families feuded over who to vote for. Our newly elected President wants to build a wall. The travel ban applies to some but not all of us. In response,...
