San Diego Injury Lawyer

John Gomez is a nationally recognized trial attorney.  A magna cum laude graduate of the  University of San Diego, where he  also garnered Academic All-American Honors as a member of the Toreros football team, John went on to graduate from Yale Law School in 1993.

Upon graduation from Yale, Gomez spent a year honing his legal skills as a law clerk to a federal judge, and the next three in Los Angeles as an attorney at Latham & Watkins, one of the nation’s largest and most prestigious law firms. There, he represented Fortune 500 and other institutional clients in a broad range of complex litigation matters.

In 1997, John accepted a position as a federal prosecutor. An exceptionally effective and award-winning trial lawyer, he tried and won twenty straight felony jury trials, including several lengthy, complex and high-profile criminal prosecutions.

When Gomez returned to private practice in 2000, he brought the same passion for the rule of law and justice to his work in representing “ordinary people.” He has taken on some of the most powerful companies in the world and has stood toe to toe with their talented and well-financed lawyers. Since 2000, he has obtained over $150 million in verdicts and settlements for his clients, with 22 awards exceeding $1 million.  Perhaps most notably he has obtained three jury verdicts in excess of one million dollars each in which the defendants had offered nothing whatsoever to settle prior to trial.
