"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

     Chris has helped many families cope after the wrongful death of a loved one. Nothing is more traumatic than losing a family member as a result of someone else's negligence and wrong-doing. If you have lost someone because of the fault of another, you will need a lawyer, not only to pursue the justice that is due, but also to negotiate the legal and procedural obstacles that determine how much you can recover. 


     Car accidents are part of life. But, when another driver breaks the rules of the road and causes injury to another person, the law provides the mechanisms to pursue monetary compensation for the damage caused by the other driver's negligence. This monetary compensation is usually recovered from the other driver's insurance company which is defended by aggressive insurance company adjusters and attorneys who want to pay you as little money as possible and close your case. An otherwise seemingly simple car accident case can oftentimes present difficult legal, insurance and injury issues that require an experienced advocate to maximize your physical and monetary recovery.


     Accident cases involving trucks and other commercial vehicles are often complex cases involving large insurance companies who hire accident reconstruction experts and defense lawyers who quickly try find any evidence they can to help minimize their liability. 

     Don't delay hiring an attorney after a crash involving a commercial vehicle. You will need a lawyer who is on your side and who can act quickly on your behalf to get the right team in place to investigate and preserve the evidence necessary to get the answers and compensation you deserve.


    If you are hurt at work, your employer is obligated to give you 3 basic benefits when you are hurt on the job:

  1. Medical treatment (but you have to request it);
  2. Pay while you are off work due to your injury, and, 
  3. A lump sum payment for a percentage of permanent disability to the body part(s) that was injured. 

     You will need an attorney to protect your rights, to get you the benefits to which you are entitled and to maximize the recovery you deserve.


     Chris has worked with and helped hundreds of victims recover from injuries due to the negligence and wrongdoing committed by property owners. This includes falls and injuries due to dangerous conditions on commercial properties or at private homes. This can include something as simple as falling merchandise at a big box store, a slip and fall at a restaurant, a dog bite at someone's home or something more complex such as unguarded or unsafe machinery at your job.

     Insurance companies will almost always try to place blame on the injury victim and say they should have “been more careful” and they are "responsible for their own injury." Often times, however, the property owner negligently violates rules and procedures and creates or allows a dangerous condition to exist that results in serious injury.

     You will need an attorney who can deal with these "comparative" or "contributory fault" arguments and who can find the proper evidence so those who caused you to get hurt are held responsible.
