Lucy is the kind of attorney that you would be if you had to defend a love one and you had the qualifications to be one. She’s attentive to her clients and to the case at hand. You will find that she is always on task. One must remember that dangerous things come in small packages, like nitroglycerin. She may be diminutive in stature but she is a force to be reckoned with. She fights the good fight with clever wit, determination, and with her extensive knowledge of criminal law. She did an excellent job of explaining the steps in the process and setting our expectations during the course of our case. We were never surprised or taken off guard with her guidance. I am very pleased with her work. I would highly recommend her if you need an criminal law attorney.
My family and I Own, manage and operate a thriving business in upscale San Francisco. Recently I was put in the predicament of having to shut down my 10 year operation due to the fact that my license was about to be revoked, for what we believed to be a competitor wanting to fuse us out of the market share, however we contacted Lucy who after 14 days of going back and forth on our behalf was able to keep us in business. I really believe that it was her and not circumstance. She fought hard for us!! Thank you Lucy.
BTW- Lucy worked 14 days and still gave us pricing based on her expected 5 day commitment.
I received an Accusation on my Pharmacy license. The Board wanted to revoke my license. Lucy was so supportive during this stressful time in my life. I was so scared of losing my license, my livelihood. I am thankful that my case ultimately settled and I got to keep my license. I recommend Lucy McAllister if you want someone to fight for your professional license.
When I first spoke with Lucy Mcallister over the phone I knew in my heart she is the ONE, who will WIN my husband case. After being railroad for over a year from another lawyer, I am so glad that we made the right decision to hire Lucy. My husband's case was set for trial, in just five months Lucy was able to work on my husband's case and WON. I was very satisfied with Lucy's QUICK, SKILLED, KNOWLEDGE, COMPASSIONATE and most of all TOUGH. I will never forget the date of August 17, 2012, this is the date that Lucy WON my husband's case for us, for the last year and half my husband and I was able to have to good night sleep. I will recommend Lucy and her staff to anyone who needs a GOOD LAWYER.
I wanted to start by introducing my situation, I had already gone through the Administration process and about to have my license probated by the courts and probably going to loose my business altogether. Not only was I ashamed and disheartened but I was very much exhausted and had completely given into the despair and guilt. I had heard of petitions to file for modifications in the past, but these were a lost cause and pretty much a relic of someones cruel joke on the real world. However My Disciplinary order had no effect on Lucy or her team. They went to work and told me to sit back and enjoy the show (I did not have to move a muscle) these gals took it to them and not only did I receive a modification, we found so many errors and mistakes that the professional licensing board had to reinstate my license altogether. AMAZING!!!!!! Thank you Lucy for everything
Lucy knocked the front door off my DA's lil paper pushing shack, Lucy told me from the beginning that she felt good about this case, and she devastated the courts with a victory for the Irish! with very little funds to take this thing to trial, I needed a way out before I hit the box and lucy not only kept me from meeting the judge eye to eye she actually got them to toss the case on a technicality that I did not even know existed until they were removing the cuffs LMAO you killed it Girl, Stay down my little TKO machine!
I was going through a very difficult time in my life recently and Lucy made it as stress-free as she could. My divorce case was probably as complex as it gets -- with restraining order, property, and child custody issues. She was calm, explained all of my options, and did not pressure me in anyway. Lucy was also very thorough and meticulous about the facts of my case. This was the kind of lawyer that I needed through my nasty and complicated divorce. Lucy was easy to talk to, easy to understand, and very concise with her advice. She understood that divorce battles can get costly, but she tried to minimize the cost however she could. She was professional, responsive, aggressive, and worth every penny. I really felt like I was getting a bargain because I know that I would not have been able to handle this case on my own. I would recommend Lucy to anyone that I know. Lucy, thank you for fighting for me and being my voice. You are a lifesaver.
Ms. Mcallister is one of the most passionate, hard working, and caring attorneys I've met. She goes the extra mile for her clients. Would definitely recommend.
I had a few questions that I needed answered but didn't really know what my options were or whether it was really worth it to hire an attorney. I contacted Lucy and she was great. She really cared about my case and took the time to go over all possible options with me.
I had sooo many questions but she was patient with me and continued to assist me until I was comfortable and I had all my questions answered :). So glad I gave her a call!
Lucy was referred to me and I figured what the heck I will give her a try! I am glad I did she would not take no for an answer she fought hard and quick for me and did better than I thought anyone could do. Everyone told me it was a lost cause to just save my money and plead guilty take and take the deal< Lucy you SAVED MY LIFE!!! Thank you!!!
