Allen is a true professional and knows his craft well! His arguments for me in court basically had the judge arguing my case for me. His reputation preceeded him as well. Highy recommend this lawyer for any DUI/DWI case!

Allen is a GREAT Attorney as well as a wonderful individual. His legal assistant, Sherry Crump is always there to help you. She understands each case personally to ensure that each of Allen's clients are getting the information they need when Allen isn't available. She is great to remind you of your court dates and is always very helpful and a joy to work with.
Over the years, my sons have made some bad decisions or were in the wrong place at the wrong time. We were fortunate to receive a recommendation from a friend to contact the Knox Law Firm, specifically Allen and that he would take care of us. They were correct.
Allen not only handled the cases successfully, but he became a mentor to my boys and talked with them to make sure they understood how they got in the mess and what they did wrong and how could they have made things better, worse, etc. Therefore, they learned from him as well. He said he treated them just like he would treat his own sons.
Each case Allen handled for us, he won. It might have taken two years to finalize, but Allen always knew which Judge, DA, etc. he wanted there when he made his case and until the right people were in the right seats, he asked for a new court date. Once all the people were where he wanted them, he presented the case making the other side wonder why they even showed up. Many times, Allen's humor made the Judge laugh as well as the entire court room. He has a way of making the other side look a little foolish which can lighten the atmosphere which is always a plus in a court room.
We always felt Allen's fees were very reasonable and he made it where we could make monthly payments to help us financially. He quotes you a price upfront and even if the case takes another direction and he must take additional time, he never increased his fees. In fact, he provided us with discounts for coming back to him and for referring others.
I would highly recommend Allen and the entire Knox Law Firm to everyone. You will never be disappointed and will always know where you stand with them. GREAT PEOPLE!

I was pulled over and arrested for DUI on a weekend in Charlotte. This was the first time that I had ever been arrested, handcuffed, and went to jail . Not a very pleasant experience for being a middle aged man. I was horrified about the entire experience but also felt panic because I knew I had to make the "right choice" for an attorney. I did my own research, narrowed my choices down and decided to go with Allen Brotherton. IN HINDSIGHT, I COULD NEVER HAVE MADE A BETTER DECISION. Allen was straightforward, honest, and, very importantly, extremely positive. I still remember him saying in our initial meeting, "if there is a way to win your case, I will find it." And Sherry was FANTASTIC. She talked me down off the ledge on several occasions as the calm voice of reason.
My case dragged out over 9-10 months with about a half dozen trips to court. Once we were in front of the judge, Allen was absolutely brilliant. My witness was equally impressed. The judge dismissed the case making for one of the best days of my life.
If you need a lawyer and do not know where to turn, its good to ask others their advice on Charlotte DUI/DWI attorneys. I can promise you this however. If you ask someone who has retained Allen Brotherton's services, they are going to tell you how great he is. Just read all the excellent reviews because they are accurate. I hope to never need an attorney again but if I do, Allen is my only choice.

Allen is so wonderful! He made sure that I felt comfortable and up-to date with all of the logistics of court. I was confident that he was going above and beyond for me and my family. He is very genuine and easy to talk to. I was hopeless when I was charged with a DWI in February of 2012. I found Allen through the recommendation of another lawyer in another city. Because of circumstances with the officer, we had to go to court 5 separate times in order to have the matter dealt with. Every time we went, Allen was always there with a smile on his face ready to go. My case is now in the process of being dismissed. His sharp eye for detail and consistency is the reason for our amazing outcome! Hire him.

Allen Brotherton and Sherry Crump were a pleasure to work with in a difficult time. Our son was issued a drinking citation. It was his first offense. Mr. Brotherton explained our situation and options fully and kept us apprised of all court dates and decisions. I checked with local police officers from Huntersville, Cornelius and Charlotte Mecklenburg about him before becoming a client. All said they had respect for Mr. Brotherton, felt he was extremely fair and told us we were in good hands. I cannot thank him enough for his time, attention to detail and his ability to get our son's case dismissed.

He is a fierce lawyer with an audacious demeanor, because he knows the law and knows it well.

Being my first experience with any form of traffic violation in 30 years of Driving - I was fearful of what would happen with a DUI and reckless Op. I felt I had to get the best representation available and was referred to Allen by a previous client with a similar experience. I also had names from friends of three other reputable Attorneys. I sat down with Allen, discussed the case, met with Sherry his Paralegal - and needless to say - I had no interest in visiting with the other attorneys and hired him on the spot. There is absolutely no reason to shop around when it comes to something this serious. His knowledge and expertise is amazing, he treats you like a person and not a criminal, is incredibly professional and compassionate. Between he and his staff (Sherry) - they always kept me up to date and guided me every step of the process. My case was closed and now working on the expunging process. I can not thank Allen and Sherry enough for their efforts - All cases are different and some more tricky (like mine) and there are no guarantees - but I always knew that Allen would give me the best shot of anyone - in handling it properly!!!! Thank you!

Represented me for a DUI in Mecklenburg county. From beginning to end, extremely professional and thorough and always kept me informed as to strategy and was very realistic about my chances. Extremely tough case with at best 50/50 chance to win. He and Sherry put me at ease during this difficult time and never promised anything except their pledge to put forth the best effort possible, which they clearly did. Not only was my DUI dismissed but Allen was also able to get my Reckless Driving charge dismissed and my speeding charge reduced! Wow, far exceeded my expectations. DUI's never easy in Mecklenburg, having an attorney of Allen's caliber is definitely a must. Not only did he have superior knowledge of the intricacies of DUI defense but he clearly understood that sometimes bad things happen to good people and never made me feel a lesser person for having been charged. I can't say enough about how well he represented me. Allen and Sherry are not merely the best choice, but in my opinion, THE ONLY CHOICE! Grateful and more than happy to have Allen on my side should I ever need his services again. Please do yourself a favor should you be in need and hire the best, a decision you won't regret. Guaranteed
