Review Eric Allen

About Me

I went to law school to handle death penalty cases.  Many of those cases i have handled on a pro bono or near pro bono basis.  The rest of my practice is focused on appeals and post conviction.  While i still try a number of cases my firm is moving towards handling the case following conviction.

  • Donald Michael Gallick

    I have worked with Eric Allen on criminal appeals. I also spent substantial time discussing criminal law and appellate matters with him when we both attended a Death Penalty Seminar at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer's College. Eric is a thoughtful, hard-working attorney who gives 100% to his clients.

  • Robert G. Wells

    I endorse this lawyer. A lawyer can accomplish things. A truly compassionate lawyer can accomplish better things. Mr. Allen is of the later variety.
