For 40 years, Koch, Degn, & Gomez Attorneys at Law have assisted people who have found themselves facing the worst life has to offer, and they’re ready to help you too. If you’re scared and don’t know where to turn, rest assured that attorney Thomas Degn and his associates are dedicated to guiding you through your case, whether you need help with a personal injury or a criminal defense case. Your life might have been turned upside down, but it doesn’t need to stay that way.
Thomas W. Degn believes in two foundational principles: a) being someone you can trust and b) giving you attentive care throughout your ordeal. The first thing Thomas will do with you is hear what you have to say. That means intently listening to your concerns, understanding your story, and pinpointing what matters most to you.
Next, he’ll gather the details of your case and develop a game plan that fits your situation, whether that’s fighting a stubborn insurance provider who won’t pay you the coverage they should or defending you and your family from unfair and uncaring criminal charges.
Our goal is to stand by your side as a knowledgeable and supportive legal advocate. We offer an experienced and professional team of attorneys that provide you personalized legal counsel, as well as hard-hitting representation. You need help to resolve your legal problems and to protect your future, and you’ve come to the right place to find that help.
Why should you choose us to be your lawyers?
Because you need someone who will fight for you.
If you’re facing criminal charges, you can’t count on a court-appointed lawyer to care about you. But we will, because our success depends on you and your case.
If you’re looking for help with a personal injury case, you can count on the other party doing their best to take advantage of you when you’re at your most vulnerable. We won’t put up with that. We’ll make sure you’re treated fairly.
49 years of it
That’s how much combined experience the Koch, Degn, & Gomez team has had.
And we’re ready to use that experience to fight for you.
When you become our client, you won’t be handed off to someone who passed the California bar last year and doesn’t know what’s going on. At a minimum, we guarantee your lawyer will have 15 years of experience. And in this profession, experience counts.

Don’t lose your case because you hired a rookie.
Reason #2: Aggressive & Strategic Approach
Did you hire us?
Then we have an obligation to get the job done, and we’re not going to wait around to get started. We build your case with you, gather supporting evidence, and plot out how we can weaken the other side.
If you’ve been charged with a crime, don’t waste time and let the other side build their case against you. We know how the district attorney approaches criminal charges.
If you’re facing debilitating injuries or getting ready to battle your own insurance company to so they’ll live up to their word, don’t do this by yourself. We’ve seen what the other side will do in personal injury and insurance cases.
We’re going to fight every step of the way to make sure you’re heard, your rights are respected, and you can walk away with your dignity intact.
Reason #3: An Expert Team of Investigators
When it comes to a trial, evidence is the make-or-break element, but presentation matters.
Thomas Degn has created a team of collaborative and knowledgeable investigators and experts that know how to present evidence that will help your case.
Our dedicated team includes former police officers who:
Speak to witnesses
Re-interview and perform background checks for prosecution witnesses
Obtain evidence and surveillance
Help convey your version of any alleged criminal activity
We also work with medical, industry, and vocational specialists who:
Testify of magnitude of the harm you suffered because of your personal injuries
Illustrate the lifelong consequences of those injuries
Refute arguments made by the opposing party
Assist in demonstrating the other party was at fault
Show just how much you stand to lose if justice is ignored
Having the facts is critical to your case, but knowing how to present the facts and evidence may make the difference between a favorable decision and a total disaster.
Which one do you want?
Reason #4: 24/7 Access
One complaint we have heard time and time again about other firms is that they are not accessible to their clients. You are paying them for representation yet you never seem to get updates or catch them at a good time. At Koch, Degn and Gomez you will never have to worry about accessibility or updates. Our attorneys are available 24/7 for support and assistance.
We understand how stressful criminal charges or injuries can be, and when you have a question you deserve to have it answered in a timely manner. We believe that frequent and close communication between client and attorney is key for successful legal representation.
Our Communication Policies:
Every call, text, or email is returned – same day.
