Gregory was my lawyer back in the day when he worked for legal aid. I was arrested and charged with several severe charges. I had no money for a lawyer. I was sitting in arraignment alone and all scared. All of a sudden Gregory comes up to me with my folder. He wanted to take my case even though I was 100% guilty. I ended up getting ROR at arraignment. Afterwards the entire process was lengthy. I went to court several times. Throughout the entire process the goal was to avoid a criminal record. After a few court appearances I had to meet with the DA who grilled me in a 2 hour session. I left that meeting with a threat of indictment and feeling horrible. Gregory assured me everything would be ok. In the end he negotiated exactly what I wanted. I pleaded guilty to a violation and the file would be sealed after a year. No criminal record. I'm now working for the city of new york at a great job. Hopefully I'll never need Gregory again but if I do he's my man. Highly Highly HIGHLY recommended.

Having a run in with the law - no matter how big or small, can be a very stressful, time consuming, and confusing situation. Therefore, having a thorough, attentive, and knowledgable attorney like Gregory will help alleviate a ton of stress. I hired Gregory to represent me in a case last year that I wanted to resolve very quickly. He expedited my case and I was swiftly granted an ACD.
Throughout the process, I had many, many questions of which Gregory promptly responded to all of my questions, via text, phone, and email, always readily accessible at all hours of the day.
Gregory specifically explained all details to me, outlined the process, and often times had to repeat and breakdown the details further as legal matters can be difficult to understand. Being entangled in a legal matter is always stressful, therefore having Gregory answer all my questions in a prompt and concise manner helped tremendously to put my mind at ease.
He also has a very welcoming demeanor which makes it very easy to discuss difficult or uncomfortable situations.
I would highly recommend Gregory for your legal issues!!!!

Gregory Gomez is a great attorney, I would recommend him to any one who needs an attorney. My reason for saying this is because about a year ago I was going through some difficult times with the law. After hiring Attorney Gregory Gomez things started looking brighter for me. Gregory Gomez is a hard working individual and is very determined about Winning his case(s).
After a whole year of fighting this case Gregory Gomez never once gave up on me or rather say turned his back away. He goes above and beyond to prove his case(s) in the court of law. We've been fighting this case and finally at the trial, the verdict was read "NOT GUILY". Gregory Gomez is the perfect Attorney, he is very understanding and reasonable. I highly recommend Attorney Gregory Gomez to any and everybody who's going through any problems with the law.

I endorse Greg. We had a mutual client on different coasts and he did a great job. He was conscientious, responsible and always kept in contact with me. He fought hard for our client and was relentless in achieving a great result in his case. Glad to have gotten to know him.
