Ann was able to negotiate and represent me exactly how you would want a family law attorney to. She didn't mess around and was tough but also lead me to make reasonable decisions and think clearly. I couldn't be happier with the results I had all because off Ann! I got full custody of my daughter which was most important to me. Ann worked relentlessly for us. I will always be thankful for her coming into our life!
Ann always made sure our interactions were cost effective. Very precise on how and what to highlight with my child custody case. Would highly recommend her.
Ann was great to work with and I would highly recommend her for any family law matter. She is very intelligent, knows family law well and was always responsive to me if I had questions or needed advice. If I left her a message or emailed her, she would get back to me within a very reasonable time period. I knew she had court appearances, other clients, etc. and would respond as soon as she was able to do so. I was very impressed with her skills in dealing with the opposing attorney and the Judge. She was respectful of them, yet asserted herself if the need arose. It appeared that she was well respected in the legal community. I would highly recommend her to any one with a family law matter and definitely would use her again if I needed a family law attorney.
Ann Allenson was retained to represent me. All she did was over charge me, did a poor job in the court room, and forget to bring important pictures at a major motion. She also constantly waited last minute to file a motion and did the basic. When I was already deep in the case it was difficult to leave and find another attorney last minute. She could not answer on the spot family law questions, did a poor job representing me, and does not care about representing you .. but taking your money and said to me I just want to go home during a mediation meeting. She has no passion for what she does and can’t believe she ended up in family law. Don’t end up like me and think twice before you retain this person.
I hired Ms. Allenson for help with a family law case regarding my daughter and she did nothing but charge me money, delay contacting people to get and/or give information, ASK ME HOW MUCH MONEY MY EXHUSBAND JON SINGER MADE AND WHAT HIS CELL PHONE UMBER WAS, immediately go on vacation for two weeks without notifying me or working on the important issues in my case and then quit without warning the day of a big meeting. My name is Jeannie Singer and any newspapers or law enforcement officials may feel free to contact me for more information.
Ms Allenson has been great to work with. She is responsive. She has also been in helping mediate our issues and keeping it out of the court system if at all possible. She has great insight and has been able to provide us with various options including helping us take on some of the process on our own at times and thus saving us money. We appreciate her approach to our situation.
She helped us through a difficult situation with changing a support/custody order that had been in place for about 7 years. Issues arose around emotional issues at ex's home and needed to have our child removed from her home temporarily. Ann was very good about telling us what to expect and what are chances were and was very informative and honest. She pointed us in the right direction and helped us do as much as we wanted on our own in order to cut costs but was there to advise us and do the work when needed. We appreciated her no nonsense approach and luckily in the end were able to resolve issues, get the child out of a bad situation while the ex works on getting the help she needs witout causing major damage to any relationships with the all the persons involved. And in our case, avoid court. She was very upfront and easy to work. She has the experience to know what to expect and what usual outcomes are depending on the approach and was able to give us options and prepared us to move quickly if needed, which made us feel more comfortable in the situation.
