My boss referred me to Lila Allen the day I was served divorce papers at my workplace from my husband. I was almost numb from the shock not to mention devastated. During the process I found out he had a women friend that wanted to "take-over" the divorce proceeding even though she was not a lawyer nor did she possess as much as a high school diploma. She showed up at our meeting with Lila and sat herself down in the office often interrupting . it was embarrassing and shocking and even my ex-husband-to be was embarrassed and ashamed and just sat and hung his head. This was such an awkward situation and I vividly remember how professional Lila was and how she was able to quietly diffuse the woman while maintaining her poise as she escorted her to the door.
I cannot recommend a more honest and professional attorney than Lila Allen. She took care of everything promptly and professionally in spite of this AMAZON woman who later came back and started using foul language. Again, Lila never lost her composure and worked through the entire situation assertively establishing an amicable solution and settlement. What stands out even more, is Lila's compassion and understanding of human behavior during such a vulnerable and trying time. I highly recommend her to any person who is seeking legal consultation from an attorney that has integrity, compassion, "knows their stuff" and is fair and honest at the same time. I am so grateful to my boss for recommending Lila!

I dont know what the person below is talking about!! Lila helped me get a substancial amount of spousal support! She came to my home several times and even drove me to my meetings and court!! She went above and beyond to help me. She was very knowledgable and always answered my calls. She even worked with me on fees, which I was very greatful. I do call her time to time and have had questions and she has always been there for me. (No Charge) I will always be very greatful to her in my time of need.

She is very cocky and has a bad reputation I have been told she is a nutcase by some court officials and should have listened. There is a reason she is not expensive. Also likes to drag the case out and dosn't like to mediate

I had gone to several attorneys and had some very bad experiences. Seems as though, when the money ran out, the other attorneys would just bail. She, however, worked with me on the fees and did not over charge me as I had been over charged in the past. I got solid advice and found that she did know what she was talking about. I was pleased with my experience.

Lila Allen is currently representing me. I had two prior attorney's before finding her, either one of the two prior attorney's conducted themselves in the manner as Ms. Allen. Lila is professional but yet also compassionate, caring, loyal, detail oriented, and very honest. It is so hard these days to value attorneys and their opionions. I would gladly recommend Ms. Allen to anyone who is seeking an attorney who has her clients best interests in mind. Ms. Allen truely is one of a kind. Attorneys like her are extremely rare and hard to find. If you are looking for a wonderful lawyer who will be in your corner then Ms. Allen is the attorney for you!

I am a father who has been fighting to keep custody of my son for about a year now. Lila Allen is my second attorney in this matter. She has been incredible and has gone beyond what I would expect any lawyer to do. Not only has she been great in court but seems to actually care about me and my case. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
