Practice area

Attorney Zoila Marisol Gomez immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic in 1988 at the age of eighteen. She attended Northern Essex Community College (NECC) for English as a Second Language (ESL) after graduating from Lawrence High School in 1989. As a single mother after the birth of her first child in 1994, she returned to NECC where she obtained an Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies in 1997. She transferred to UMass Lowell where she obtained a Bachelors Degree in Political Science in 2000 while working full time. In 1999, she began working for then Congressman Martin Meehan as an intern and three months later she was hired as an employee. She left Congressman Meehan’s office in the fall of 2002 to begin law school at the Massachusetts School of Law in Andover, at which time she opened her own business as an immigration consultant. She obtained her Juris Doctorate in 2005 and license to practice law in 2006. She immediately opened her law practice, the Law Offices of Zoila M. Gomez and since then has been serving the immigrant community north of Boston and beyond with much needed legal representation and advocacy. She is now the Managing Partner of the law firm Gomez and Palumbo, LLC.

Since 1999, Attorney Gomez has dedicated her time to advocate for and educate the immigrant community. In her efforts to further educate the immigrant community regarding their rights and responsibilities, Attorney Gomez, participates weekly in the radio show “Al Son de la Manana,” which airs Mondays through Fridays in WGUA Radio Catolica, 98.1 FM. In the fall of 2011, she returned to NECC as a professor of Immigration Law and Policy and feels passionate about giving back to the school that she graduated from. She is also the board chair of the Youth Development Organization, a nonprofit organization which seeks to engage students in after school programs to enhance their abilities to compete and have the confidence to survive in the world outside the walls of Lawrence. She is a member of the board of trustees for Lawrence Evangelical Church where she celebrates her faith along with her sons, Christopher and Jean Carlos. In 2011, she served as a member of the UMass Board of Trustee to which she was appointed by Governor Deval Patrick. Most recently, in 2015, she was appointed by Governor Charlie Baker to the Judicial Nominating Commission and served in that capacity until May 1, 2018. Most recently she joined the Lawrence Partnership Board of Directors as a member.
