I came from a family of doctors. My grandfather was an OB-GYN, my father was an OB-GYN and my brother is a pediatric radiologist. My father was a rare breed of doctor who made house calls and cared deeply about his patient's welfare and instilled in me compassion for my fellow man. Although I began my college career as a pre-med major, I found that I was more interested in logic courses and philosophy. I graduated from Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida with a major in philosophy and went to law school at Cumberland School of Law of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. I received my JD degree in 1972.
While studying for the Florida Bar, I learned of a job opportunity in Fort Myers, Florida in the State Attorney's Office as a prosecutor. I interviewed and was hired in 1972 by Joseph D'Alessandro, who was the State Attorney at that time. He immediately placed me in the Felony Division and in a year and a half I tried 34 felony trials ranging from drug possession to murder. I was recruited by a personal injury law firm and hired in 1974 to try personal injury cases.
My family background in medicine and values that were imparted to me by my family proved a successful combination for handling personal injury cases. I am a very passionate person and that characteristic carries over to my representation of personal injury clients.
In 1985, I became certified by the Florida Bar in civil trial practice after having tried a requisite number of jury trials and passing a very rigorous examination given by the Florida Bar. I have also received my certification by the National Board of Trial Advocacy and am proud of those accomplishments as board certified lawyers are in the minority.
I have tried cases ranging from whiplash to multi-million dollar catastrophic injury cases. Regardless of the size of the case, I represent each client with the requisite passion and vigor that is necessary for a successful resolution of the case. I have always maintained that the focus of a personal injury lawyer should be the client's bottom line. If one focuses on the client's bottom line in most instances you will have a happy client at the end of the case and a successful practice.
I take great pleasure in resolving a personal injury case that nets my client a recovery that adequately compensates them for their pain, suffering, disability and loss of enjoyment of life.
I am a member of the North Fort Myers Rotary Club and am a former Rotarian of the Year. I believe in supporting the community in as many ways as possible. Every year, during the holiday season, my firm sponsors a pajama drive obtaining pajama donations for homeless and indigent families who are unable to afford pajamas for their children during the winter season. In past years we have obtained donations from 800 to over 1000 pairs of pajamas that we were able to disseminate into the community through charitable networks. I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction from this endeavor in addition to serving my local Rotary Club and adhering to their motto of placing "service above self."

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Allan’s comment: “I consented to the admonishment, the lowest form of discipline available. As soon as it became apparent that there were issues regarding trust account procedures, I immediately took steps to enhance the level of review by the existing CPA firm and to bring the trust account into full compliance. I have substantial experience, but no prior disciplinary record. I made a timely and good faith effort to rectify any problem and cooperated fully in the Bar's investigation and audit.”
