About Me

Attorney Steven Allinson earned his Juris Doctor from Quinnipiac University School of Law in 2007 and was awarded a Dean's Scholarship.  While attending Quinnipiac, Steve worked for the Quinnipiac University Legal Clinic helping the community by providing free legal services.  Steve earned the maximum clinical credits allowed by the school, and upon graduation he was awarded the prestigious Excellence in Clinical Work Award.

Steve graduated from Bryant College in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Actuarial Mathematics and Business Administration with a Minor in Political Science.  While attending Bryant, he was a Brother of the Delta Kappa Epsilon and a Dean's Scholar.

Steve was admitted to the State of Connecticut Bar in November 2007. He is a member of the Connecticut Bar Association and the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. Steve joined several of these organizations while attending law school and is an active member in each. He is also a proponent for Elder Rights and is an active advocate in the community.

While attending Law School, Steve worked as a law clerk for three years at Lynch, Traub, Keefe and Errante, a prestigious firm in New Haven. Upon graduation, Attorney Allinson had the privilege of clerking for several judges in New Haven Superior Court and working on cases in many different areas of law. 

Currently, Attorney Allinson works as an Of Counsel Associate for Kennelly & Associates, LLC, in Hartford, CT, and is in private practice here at Allinson & Associates, LLC. Steve uses his expertise in several areas of law to further those values he learned while working at the Quinnipiac University Legal Clinic; specifically, he uses the law to try and improve the quality of living of all those around him. Often, you can see him representing clients that can not afford a lawyer in the surrounding Probate Courts.

Currently, Steve resides in Wallingford, CT.  He is a an officer of Hiram Lodge #1 in New Haven, volunteers in his free time at Masonicare, an elder care facility in Wallingford, and serves as a Director on multiple Boards of Masonicare. Often you can find him fishing, golfing, at the gym, at a concert, skiing, travelling, or off on an adventure.

  • Andrew Stephen Knott

    I have worked with Atty. Allinson on multiple cases--many of which have been hotly contested. In each case, Atty. Allinson was prepared, knowledgeable, and honest--all without ego. If I need a probate lawyer, I will ask Atty. Allinson to represent me.
