SAN DIEGO - August 5, 2020 - (Newswire.com)
Attorney John Gomez, of Gomez Trial Attorneys, was accepted as a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Mr. Gomez is one of the most noteworthy California lawyers in personal injury and product liability cases.
To qualify for the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an attorney must have been principal counsel in a jury trial or court trial where the attorney’s client received a verdict of $1 million or higher. It is not sufficient for an attorney to have just worked on a case.
The case cannot be subject to an appeal or other modifications. Final arbitrator awards and settlements of at least $1 million will also qualify an attorney. Mr. Gomez boasts multiple cases where he obtained over $1 million in compensation for his clients. The amount of the award cannot be the overall payout—it must apply to the present economic value of the award.
Some of Mr. Gomez’s awards include a $6.5 million jury verdict for a burn injury case; a $105.3 million jury verdict for a fraud and negligence case; a $16.2 million jury verdict for a slip and fall case that resulted in a brain injury; a $30 million settlement for a DePuy ASR Hip product liability case; and a $16.2 million settlement for a slip and fall incident that resulted in a mild traumatic brain injury.
