Mr. John Anthony Gomez is an associate attorney at the Law Office of Shawn C. Brown in San Antonio, Texas. He is a native of Starr County, Texas and graduated from Roma High School in 2010 and went on to attend The University of Texas at Austin. There, he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Government and a Minor in Spanish in 2015. Mr. Gomez then attended St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio and graduated with a Juris Doctorate in 2018.
During his time in law school, Mr. Gomez served as a staff writer for The Scholar Law Review, where he revised and edited various articles that were to be published. While being a part of The Scholar, he also worked on researching and writing an article which focused on the “police-state” dynamic in the Rio Grande Valley after the increase in Texas DPS Troopers as part of the government’s ongoing battle with international drug trafficking and illegal migration. He was also the president of the Longhorn Bar Association on campus, which provided resources, job opportunities, and a friendly hand to fellow UT-Austin alumni, as well as other individuals seeking aid. Throughout the rigorous course load that law school has to offer, and the time consuming research that serving as a staff writer required, Mr. Gomez was still able to work as a law clerk in the criminal defense sector for over two years before being licensed. As a clerk, he gained significant experience researching and writing legal briefs for cases before various Texas Appeals Courts.
In the short time since joining the firm, Mr. Gomez has gained significant experience in various counties throughout central and south Texas.
