My name is Geoffrey D. Allen and I have more than 33 years of legal experience helping people resolve their legal challenges in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner. As an attorney authorized to practice law in England as well as in the District of Columbia, I have been equipped by my experience abroad with a wide range of law techniques. These enable me to examine and resolve your case from a unique perspective and different angles.
My practice revolves around zealously protecting the rights and interests of those who have been brutalized, who have been treated unfairly by institutions or who have suffered personal injury due to others’ carelessness. I accept personal injury cases on a “contingency fee” basis, which means my clients pay me nothing unless I obtain monetary compensation for them.
