Team Tryouts

John Gomez Team Tryouts
My three kids play club soccer. The club just held tryouts. I tried hard to parent and teach my kids leading up to that week, and so I write about it here. As different as they are in everything they do, they play and approach soccer differently too. Tryouts, though, had a happy ending for them all. My ten-year-old, “JD”,...
John Gomez Life Of A Trial Lawyer
I am in the middle of trial. We represent a great young guy, Jesus. When Jesus was 7, his mom bought a Ralph Lauren shirt for him from Macy's. The tag of the shirt said, “100% Cotton.” A while later, unfortunately, Jesus was playing with a lighter. He burned a piece of plant which fell on his shirt. He...
John Gomez Hour Of Power
No, I am not here writing about Bobby Schuller’s evangelical television program, 'The Hour of Power'. But rather, I write to suggest that the first hour of your day is by far the most important, and sets the tone for all that follows. I also share here my morning routine. I do so hoping to inspire one or more...
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...
John Gomez Attorney Strong Company Culture
Culture Counts I feel like I wear a lot of hats in my job. I am a trial lawyer. I try many, many cases before juries to verdict. I am a litigator. I strategize cases, take depositions, and prepare cases for both resolution and trial. I am a “rainmaker” and marketer. Because I know many people and have achieved some...
John Gomez Attorney Staying Strong Through Adversity
I recently was invited to speak to a group of lawyers about staying strong through adversity. My topic was, “How to Overcome Adversity and Loss as a Trial Lawyer.” I have certainly overcome some adversity and struggles in my life. And as a trial lawyer, I have dealt with loss as well. One really difficult thing about trying cases...

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 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,...
John Gomez Gomez Trial Attorneys
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...
