Jonathan Coleman is a senior associate at TLD Law with a focus on both civil and probate litigation.
A Southern California native, Jonathan grew up in Westchester and attended Loyola High School in downtown Los Angeles. He went on to receive a Bachelor of Arts from University of California San Diego in 2008, with a major in Political Science and a minor in Theater, something that still serves him well in his courtroom endeavors.
Jonathan, or “JJ” as he prefers to be called, graduated from Loyola Law School, where he focused on developing trial advocacy skills, participating on both the Byrne Trial Team and completing the Hobbes District Attorney Clinic. After working as a Law Clerk at TLD Law, Mr. Coleman was hired on after passing the Bar. Immediately joining the litigation team at TLD law, he dove into trial work to acquire breadth of experience in business and partnership disputes, Elder Abuse, Trust litigation, Estate Administration, Employment Law, Real Estate litigation, as well as various Unlawful Detainer and Temporary Restraining order hearings.
Since joining the firm as an associate in 2015, Mr. Coleman has completed over eleven bench trials ranging from contested conservatorships to property line disputes, to unlawful detainers. Additionally, he’s completed a commercial arbitration and Co-chaired an employment jury trial which returned as 12-0 Defense verdict for the TLD client.
JJ’s litigation insight molds his estate planning practice, where his experience litigating heirship, breach of fiduciary duty, and removal of trustees and administrators informs advice he gives to TLD clients to avoid litigation in their own estate planning. Wishing to continue his development as a litigator, Mr. Coleman never backs down from an opportunity to take a novel case to trial.
