Jessica began working with the Gomez Law Firm in 2007 as a paralegal. In 2008 she decided to go to law school to further her legal skills and gain the ability to be an even stronger advocate for her clients. Jessica spent every summer as a law clerk with the Gomez Law Firm and returned full time in August of 2011.
Jessica has participated in multiple trials during her time with the Gomez Law Firm, both as a paralegal and as an attorney, actively participating in securing over 20 million dollars in verdicts. She was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to examine her first witnesses at trial just six days after being sworn in to the bar. Jessica greatly enjoys being an advocate for those injured by the wrongful acts of others. She is grateful for her experiences at the Gomez Law Firm working with wonderful clients and an amazing group of friends, mentors, and trial attorneys.
Jessica’s life experience was enriched by living in Saipan and Hawaii as a child before moving to the San Fernando Valley, California. Jessica moved to San Diego in 2002 to attend San Diego State University where she received a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Finance in 2006.
Jessica attended the University of Arizona Law School and graduated in 2011. During law school Jessica was actively involved, serving as both a volunteer and the Student Coordinator for the Volunteer Lawyers Domestic Relations Clinic, Fundraising Chair for the Law Women’s Association, Secretary of the Asian Pacific American Law Student’s Association, a writer for the Arizona Law Review, and a volunteer for the Wills for Heroes program. Jessica also spent her third year participating in the Prosecution Clinic and successfully tried numerous misdemeanor cases at the Pima County Prosecutor’s Office. Jessica was named the 2010 Volunteer Student of the Year by the Southern Arizona Volunteer Lawyer’s Program.
As with any member of The Gomez Law Firm, giving back to the community is an important part of Jessica’s life. She has volunteered as a camp counselor and director with the YMCA for over ten years. Jessica is a member of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, Lawyers Club of San Diego, the San Diego County Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.
