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...
Costa Rica
I was recently in trial for seven consecutive weeks. Facing another trial scheduled to begin two weeks after the last one ended, I knew I needed some time to relax and recharge. And so, in the middle of my last trial, I booked a trip to Costa Rica. Originally I booked the trip for two: me and my fiancé....

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...
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,...
Coronavirus
It’s now week 2 of mandatory shelter-in-place restrictions in California. My employees have been working remotely, and my kids can’t go to school. They also don’t get to go to soccer practice, train gymnastics or ride horses. I don’t get to go to the gym, do yoga or train jiu-jitsu. ...
End Racism
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill.  Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed and lying face down in the street, begging for his life and repeatedly saying "I can't...
We Are All Human
I wonder if America has ever been so divided. It seems like we argue and fight and disagree over virtually everything these days. We all seem to either hate or love our President. And we hate each other if we disagree. We seem to either think that racism is systemic or a convenient excuse. And hate those...
