Chief Operating Officer

Ahmed Diab

Ed Diab serves as the COO of Gomez Trial Attorneys. In this role, he works closely with the leadership team and Partners to build and improve the firm’s processes and systems to provide better service and a streamlined client experience.

Ed Diab is also Of Counsel to GTA. His practice focuses on pharmaceutical, medical device and wildfire litigation. He was part of a very small team that negotiated, and recovered, over $1.4 billion in settlements on behalf of his clients that sustained losses in the 2017 and 2018 wildfires that ravaged California. For these results, he was recognized by the Daily Journal with the prestigious 2020 California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (CLAY) award.

Ed began his career as an active trial attorney focused on complex plaintiffs’ elder abuse and medical malpractice litigation. This experience gave him the opportunity to successfully litigate these matters through trial in a first and second chair role. He was then given the opportunity to open the west coast office of a national insurance subrogation law firm and served as the office’s Managing Attorney for several years. Ultimately, Ed returned to the representation of injured plaintiffs at GTA.

Because of the foregoing experience, he has had the honor of being personally appointed to several leadership positions including:

  • Plaintiffs Executive Committee, Woolsey Fire Cases, California JCCP No. 5000 (2019)
  • Plaintiffs Co-Lead Counsel, “Sharp Grossmont Hospital Hidden Camera Litigation” San Diego Superior Court (2019)
  • Plaintiffs Executive Committee, California North Bay Fire Cases, California JCCP No. 4955 (2017)
  • Plaintiffs Steering Committee, In re: Smith & Nephew Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR) Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2775 (2017)
  • Plaintiffs Executive Committee, Butte Fire Cases, California Judicial Council Coordinated Proceeding (“JCCP”) No. 4853 (2016)
  • Discovery Committee Member, In re: Taxotere (Docetaxel) Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2740 (2016)

  • Plaintiffs Executive Committee II, In re: Biomet M2A Magnum Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2391 (2015)

Ed was recognized each year since 2015 through 2021 as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers magazine, recognition reserved for only the top 2.5% of attorneys in California. In 2013, he was named a Rising Star by the San Diego Attorney Journal. In 2010 and 2012, Ed was selected as a Top Young Attorney by San Diego’s leading legal publication, The Daily Transcript. Recently, he was also selected “Top 40 Under 40” by The National Trial Lawyers organization and San Diego Metro.

Ed completed his undergraduate education at the University of California at Davis, obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics in 2005. In 2008, he obtained his law degree from California Western School of Law. During law school, he received the Scholarship for Academic Achievement and gained membership into the Pro Bono Honors Society through his efforts in assisting victims of torture obtain asylum. He was also an educator in the Street Law program designed to teach troubled youth at the high school level about law, democracy and human rights.
