About me

You want a respected attorney who will listen and get you the most that you can get. Let me relieve you of the headache of your insurance claim or lawsuit.

I've got over 20 years of experience handling serious personal injury claims. I know what I'm doing.

I'm Kelly Balamuth. SuperLawyers has named me one of the Top 50 Women Attorneys in Northern California every year since 2012. I have been rated "superb" by and I have an AV rating (the highest rating for competence and ethics) with Martindale Hubbell.

I handle personal injury cases arising out of auto and construction site accidents, dog bites, and slip & falls. I also represent people who have been injured by doctors and hospitals. I've been successfully representing clients in the Bay Area and beyond since 1994.
