I received my law degree from Seattle University School of Law in 2007. During law school, I focused primarily on Criminal Law while participating in advanced courses in Comprehensive Pretrial and Trial Advocacy. Those courses allowed me to prepare for and conduct mock trials with the guidance of King County prosecutors in front of King County judges. Additionally, I excelled in the nation's #1 Legal Writing program. When I graduated, I accepted a position as a Deputy County Attorney with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.
As a Deputy County Attorney, I continued to work on developing my skills as a trial attorney. I began my career at the Maricopa County Attorney's Office prosecuting Juvenile offenses where I conducted numerous trials. For a period of over 5 years as a Deputy County Attorney, I prosecuted thousands of cases including a variety of felony and misdemeanor offenses in the Superior and Justice Courts of Maricopa County. I have conducted dozens of trials throughout Maricopa County. I concluded my career at the Maricopa County Attorney's Office after being selected to the elite Sex Crimes Bureau.
As an Attorney/Owner at the Law Offices of Allen & Meyerand PLLC, I have helped manage one of Arizona's fastest-growing law firms. AM Law has had tremendous success working with high-profile clients and the media attention that follows them. The firm has a reputation for understanding the unique needs of clients and their families while dealing with media attention related to their cases.
I have also continued to excel as a trial attorney. Most recently, I secured an acquittal for a client in an extremely serious felony case after succesfully reducing his bond from $100,000.00 all the way down to $5,000.00. I have successfully defended a variety of cases including misdemeanor and felony charges.
