We maintain a trial and appellate practice, primarily in the federal courts. We focus on representing individuals facing government investigations or accusations. We also handle civil and regulatory matters, usually in cases involving federal or state agencies or where the stakes are otherwise high. With offices in San Diego and San Francisco, we maintain a docket of cases throughout California, as well as select cases out of state. Our firm was founded by Ethan Balogh and Ben Coleman, a decade after they became colleagues at the nationally renowned Federal Defender Office in San Diego.

Coleman & Balogh offers a rare combination of sound judgment, creativity, and energy. With the highest academic credentials, years of courtroom experience, and a steadfast dedication to the plight of the accused, we assure our clients an intelligent, focused, and committed representation in every case.
