Gomez Trial Attorneys is an award-winning plaintiff’s trial firm headquartered in San Diego, California. Founder & President John Gomez has assembled a nationally-recognized legal team that handles personal injury, mass tort, and class action cases.

“The more enduring stories are born of some struggles along the way.”

We’re thrilled to share that we will welcome John to the virtual stage at the EVOLVE Summit in June! As an incredible leader in the legal community, he’ll be sharing insightful lessons from experiences he’s lived himself to help you empower and align your team, grow personally and professionally as a leader, and build the law firm of the future.

Who is John Gomez?

John started his firm alone in 2005, and has since grown it into a nationally-recognized goliath team of award-winning trial attorneys. He may be a humble man, but John is fierce when it comes to business. Not only does he fight tooth and nail for his clients, but he shows the same grit for his team when it comes to growing the firm.

We’re also proud to call John one of our top clients here at Crisp. As his firm has grown in size and notoriety, Gomez has encountered marketing challenges competing for new clients, and he also realized he would need to cultivate intentional leadership and savvy business operations in order to scale effectively.

In order to solve those challenges, he joined Crisp’s comprehensive Crisp Coach program. This program is designed to bring together the nation’s most committed law firm owners to share experiences, trade ideas, and keep each other accountable to the growth goals they set for each of their organizations. Together, we have kept his law firm moving forward, and we haven’t looked back since.

But John wasn’t always the big shot he is today. Coming from modest beginnings, he’s made some mistakes in his life and fought through some hardships, but he’s better today because of it. John’s early years of school weren’t easy, but he ended up graduating from Yale University Law School. He then went on to clerk for a federal judge, work for the internationally-recognized firm of Latham Watkins, and serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney.

John later decided he wanted to dedicate his career to representing the people in court, and since then, he has made a storied career as a trial attorney. Now, he’s established himself as one of California’s most recognized and accomplished trial lawyers.

The list of accolades awarded to John and his firm are countless:

  • National Lawyer of the Year
  • San Diego Trial Lawyer of the year
  • 11 Outstanding Trial Lawyer Awards
  • Top Lawyers in a variety of fields, including personal injury, products liability, mass torts, car accidents, insurance and corporate litigation
  • 2018 #1 Intentional tort verdict and #1 Premises liability verdict
  • and MUCH more.

John and the Gomez Trial Attorneys are nothing short of a decorated team of winners.

A prolific trial lawyer, former Board member of both the San Diego County Bar Association and the San Diego Volunteer Lawyers Program, and 2012 President of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego — John Gomez is undoubtedly a leader in the legal industry. Being an attorney is not just a job for John, it’s a calling. That’s why his firm has been so greatly successful.


Outside of his exceptional career track record, John is also dedicated to his faith, fitness, and community. You can find him in his spare time hanging out with his family, spending time at his church, or training to compete at the World Master IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

John believes that trial lawyers have an obligation to make their communities a better place — both through litigation and community service. He practices what he preaches. He commits enormous time and resources to a variety of charitable causes. In recognition of his commitment to these causes, the San Diego County Bar Association recognized him with its 2012 “Community Service” award. Of all the plaques he has received, John is most proud of that one.
