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,...
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,...
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...

As Gomez Trial Attorneys approach our tenth year as a law firm, I reflect upon our founding principles and core values. I opened the firm in 2005 with three files, a folding table, and one employee. Today, our firm employs more than 40 amazing professionals and represents thousands of consumers and families nationally. People sometimes ask me why we...

Paper Tigers

John Gomez Paper Tigers
According to Wikipedia, Paper tigers is a literal English translation of the Chinese phrase zhilaohu (紙老虎). The term refers to something that seems threatening but is ineffectual and unable to withstand challenge. The expression became well known in the West as a slogan used by Mao Zedong's Chinese communist state against its opponents, particularly the U.S. government. I suppose...
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...
Attorney John Gomez Trial Attorneys Core Values
I believe very strongly in the power of pause and reflection. For that reason, I cherish the often-quiet time between Christmas and New Year as a time to set goals, resolutions and aspirations. I invariably set goals for myself and Gomez Trial Attorneys. This year, however, inspired by my good friends at Hughes Marino, who do an outstanding job...
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...
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...
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...
