"Highly Recommend"

I believe Mr. Allen gave me 110% of his attention and that is very important in looking for an attorney. When the case began, he explained in detail what he would do and that he would make every effort to get me what I deserve and he did just that! The time he took wasn't long at all. He kept me informed on what was going on with my case and if at any time I needed to speak to him, if he wasn't there, he would return my call each and every time. He is dependable and will work for you so I highly recommend him. Read More Reviews
