John Gomez -- Gomez Trial Attorneys -- Continues to Help Support the Victims From 2013 Chariot Fire

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - January 15, 2016) - Since The Chariot Fire of July 2013, John Gomez of Gomez Trial Attorneys has dedicated much of his time and assistance to those most affected by the California disaster. Based on a deep commitment to social and charitable causes, Gomez founded his boutique San Diego plaintiffs firm in 2005. Since then, the legal practice has received a reputation for winning exceptional trial verdicts.

Together with a professional team of associates, they have represented a diverse multitude of clients in wrongful death, personal injury, environmental matters, defective products and class action suits. Besides the extensive property damages that occurred at the fire, a total of 149 structures were completely destroyed. Having lost so much and seeking assistance with their desperate situation, The Al Bahr Shrine Camp in San Diego County, and a group of independent cabin owners, retained Gomez Trial Attorneys to uncover the root of the fire and receive financial compensation. The camp is just one of the victims for which Gomez has personally provided help.

John Gomez and his team of attorneys are currently working hard to expedite this process and ensure their clients receive the appropriate monetary reparation and support they greatly need. The Chariot Fire spread rapidly towards the Cleveland National Forest and into the Al Bahr Campground. By the time the wildfire was contained, the infrastructure of the historic Shriner community had been completely devastated. After a thorough investigation, Gomez Trial Attorneys' associates believe that the disaster was started by a Chrysler Jeep Wrangler driven by a staff member at the Bureau of Land Management. Since the Jeep was driven by a federal employee, the Chariot Fire suit includes claims against both the U.S. government and the Chrysler Corp.

A Yale University Law School graduate and proud member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, John Gomez founded Gomez Trial Attorneys in 2005 and quickly turned it into the country's most accomplished trial and serious injury law firm. Gomez gained experience when working for the international firm Latham & Watkins and honed his skills in the honorable position of an Assistant United States Attorney. In his career, he has been named as San Diego's Trial Lawyer of the Year twice, and appointed as 2010 National Lawyer of the Year by Lawyers USA. As one of the most accomplished and respected trial lawyers in California, Gomez has recovered more than $300 million in verdicts and settlements for his firm's clients. In addition, he has earned admiration for practicing what he preaches, giving both his resources and time generously to several social causes. In 2012, the San Diego County Bar Association honored Gomez with its esteemed plaque for "Community Service", and this award remains one of his most prized possessions. Since its foundation, Gomez Trial Attorneys grew rapidly and now holds a highly qualified team of 17 attorneys and more than 35 legal professionals.
