  • 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.
