Mark Wade Coleman

About me

A staunch defender of a person’s rights to personal liberty and just compensation, criminal defense and personal injury attorney Mark Coleman is a tireless advocate for his clients in Fresno and throughout the Central Valley.

As an avid shooter who has competed in national competitions since 1984, it is no surprise that the lifelong Fresno resident brings a sharp focus, drive for excellence, and tactical knowledge to the courtroom, which has led to numerous verdicts in favor of his clients, and to recognition among his peers.

In 1990, Mark obtained a verdict in excess of a million dollars and has obtained similar results in other cases in his 30-year career.

Mark is recognized by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys as one of the Top 10 criminal defense attorneys in Northern California, and as one of the Top 100 trial lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers. As a further testament to his reputation in the courts, Mark has been retained to represent state and federal law enforcement officers and court officials in their matters.
