    A caring, compassionate lawyer with integrity

    For most people, having to hire an attorney is usually a very negative experience. It can be expensive, emotionally draining, and humbling. Lucy McAllister and her team really exceeded all of my expectations and helped my family really get through a very trying and emotional time.

    Throughout my dealings with Lucy, I found her to be extremely knowledgable, resourceful, honest, and very responsive to me and my family's needs. She was always able to explain the complexity of our situation and predict what would happen next. She always made us aware of our options and made us feel like we were in the driver's seat.

    She was always available to talk on the phone, and it was not uncommon to get an email from her at 10 PM on a Saturday night in response to a last minute question. She really understood our situation and personally helped me cope with the immense stress by offering good advice, and by showing care, compassion, and concern.

    She always was honest and forthright in all of our conversations. When I noticed a billing error on one of the statements due to a miscommunication, she immediately corrected it personally.

    I highly recommend. Lucy. She and her staff always treated us with care, respect, and integrity. Without her help, we would have never been able to negotiate the difficulties of our personal situation and come away with the outcome she was able to help us acheive.

    Lucy Defended Us!

    Lucy McAllister has been there for our family during a very trying time. We retained her services for about a year and a half during which time she demonstrated herself to be a rare combination of a shrewd no-nonsense lawyer and a compassionate, family-oriented individual.
    When our family was under attack due to the non-typical behavior of our toddler autistic son, Lucy defended us ardently and took our case personally.
    She understands the system and has the experience to know how to handle the complexities of the case as well as the foresight to predict how the case could develop.
    She is very thorough and preemptively collected from us an arsenal of evidence.
    She used it to build a very comprehensive multi faceted defense and was able to uncover hard evidence to successfully challenge the false accusations.
    She gave back to our family a sense of justice.
    We recommend Lucy and her assistant Melody to anyone who wants a good effective attorney with a concern for family and a sense of integrity.

    An Excellent Criminal Attorney

    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.

    Back in the Swing of things

    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.

    AMAZING Licensing Defense Attorney

    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.

    Lucy Mcallister and her team are miracle workers

    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.

    Thank you to Lucy and her Crew

    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

    Way to take them down Lucy!!!!

    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!

    Compassionate Attorney, honest and sincere. Highly recommend!

    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.
