Phil Coleman: Attorney with Goldberg Jones | Divorce For Men
Attorney Awards


Phil's 20+ years of varied and complex litigation experience, coupled with his exclusive practice of family law since 2002, serves his clients very well. "His litigation experience gives him an edge in the court room against lesser advocates who frequently do not fully know the trial procedures or rules of evidence", says San Diego Managing Attorney Zephyr Hill. Phil has handled hundreds of cases to conclusion and helps clients with his straightforward honest approach. At Goldberg Jones, he has handled a large variety of cases involving business ownership, complex custody matters, domestic violence, and much more. Phil is a respected advocate and a superior family law attorney.

Phil chose family law to aid his clients not only with winning cases, but to help husbands and fathers through a tough time. He directs his clients to focus on important matters when emotions run high. According to Phil, "representing men almost exclusively has its advantages. We know the ins and outs of the system, have the relevant research and know how to win cases. We emphasize advocating for men and are very familiar with the issues that men deal with when it comes to divorce or custody." The most rewarding part of my career at Goldberg Jones is to be able to help clients meet their needs and to win cases.

Phil is a native to southern California and when he is not at work he enjoys cycling, live music, skiing with his kids, cooking, and a good glass of scotch.
