I endorse this lawyer. Kelly Allen is viewed by attorneys in this area as the preeminent employment lawyer in the northwest, and is truly a 'lawyer's lawyer.' His background is impressive, with scholastic accolades, federal clerkships, teaching appointments and professional publications. But the two areas in which he separates himself are based on his interpersonal communication skills and courtroom presence, which cannot be understated. He commands respect, whether in negotiaton or argument -- perhaps the single most valuable gift a prospective client would hope for.
Keller is one of the top employment lawyers in Eastern Washington. He is experienced, knowledgeable, hard-working, and professional. I regularly call Keller when I am struggling with an employment law issue on one of my cases. He has authored many of the articles and publications used by lawyers in Washington when practicing employment law. His courtroom skills are exceptional, and he has a stellar reputation with the judges in the region.
I have worked with Kelly for several years and know him to be a hard-working, thoughtful attorney who provides excellent service to his clients. He has a wide range of experience and knowledge in the labor and employment field. Kelly is always professional and ethical in his dealings with his clients and opposing counsel and parties.
I was Plaintiff's counsel on a wrongful discharge suit where Kelly defended the employer. It involved complicated questions of state/federal jurisdiction and whether ERISA would apply. Throughout Kelly was courteous, respectful and professional and exhibited excellent lawyer skills in his written and oral presentations. He prevailed on summary judgment. I would recommend him for anyone with an employment case based on my experience with him "across the courtroom".
Kelly is an outstanding lawyer. He does an exceptional job for his clients and I highly recommend him.
I highly recommend Keller Allen. He is a very talented trial lawyer. His skills and knowledge are excellent. Mr. Allen is always professional and ethical while vigorously representing his clients.
