About Allen, Semelsberger & Kaelin LLP

How Our Firm Got Started

In 1987, six attorneys with a singular vision started a law firm here in San Diego, California. The firm was named for four of its founders, Endeman, Lincoln, Turek & Heater (ELTH), and quickly earned a reputation as a group of effective trial lawyers and tough negotiators. The firm grew larger, but it never outgrew its dedication to winning justice for its clients.

Since our founding, our firm has remained true to its founding principle: to represent all clients—individuals, medical practices, counties, cities, and corporations—with the drive and dedication they deserve.

Where We Are Today

Located in the heart of San Diego’s financial neighborhood, the most significant change to the group was made in 2014. To reflect the firm’s current managing partners, Jim Allen, David Semelsberger, and George Kaelin, the name evolved to Allen, Semelsberger & Kaelin LLP.
