About Me

When representing a client in any criminal/civil matter, my number one goal is to keep you informed, especially when new information becomes available regarding your case. A client should be comfortable with his/her attorney and TRUST his/her attorney. I do my best to work closely with my clients, keep them informed and communicate so that the possible outcome is the end result. No client is more important than another. All of my clients are top priority!

  • William C. Head

    I have know Allison McCarthy for more than 12 years. She started working with my firm in 1996 and has worked her way up from a law firm employee, then to law firm paralegal, then to becoming a practicing attorney in 2001. She has a tremendous track record of obtaining great results for her clients. If required to fight the case, she is trained and prepared for trial. She has earned her way to a position where she can skillfully represent clients in tackling even the toughest cases. Her focus has matured as she has achieved years of experience, and she now handles both civil litigation and some criminal cases. I refer cases to her with confidence that the people she represents will get personal attention and good results.
