About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

I am originally from Maine and went to college there.  I served four years in the U.S. Army and afterwards I attended law school in Washington, D.C. After law school I practiced in a small town in Texas, helping out individuals who were injured.

After practicing in Texas, my family moved to Pennsylvania; settling in Johnstown.  I then transformed my practice into helping people who are in serious financial situations.  I worked for a firm out of Pittsburgh, and then set out on my own.  I opened up my own debt relief practice and now help people who need the assistance of our nation's bankruptcy laws.

I am a member of the following organizations:

Pennsylvania Bar Association
State Bar of Texas (inactive member)
American Bar Association
National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys
Cambria County Bar Association

I am licensed to practice law in all state courts in Pennsylvania as well as the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania


I am married and have two teenage sons and I spend alot of my free time carting them around to tennis tournaments and practices.

Dedication
My long journey of 6 years was greatly supported by Attorney Allen. He was always available with answers and consult 24/7. Even during a year when I was states away, Attorney Allen continued to guide me. I am VERY grateful for all his guidance and support through a very challenging step in my life! Thank you!!

Bankruptcy Attorney
I would highly recommend Richard Allen for a bankruptcy attorney he was very understanding of my situation and why I had to file bankruptcy. He explained everything to me and what to expect before going to court. I thank him and the judge that heard my case for lifting such a heavy burden off of me.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
We found Attorney Allen to be very professional. knowledgeable. and helpful in guiding us through our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Any time we contacted him he responded within hours of the e-mail. If you are considering bankruptcy; this is the man to consult.

Great communication, compassion and understanding!
I felt very confident Mr. Allen walking me through this process. He communicated quickly and effectively. I was informed about the process and how it was going to work. I had no surprises. When I would contact Mr. Allen with a question he always got back to me quickly even if it was after hours. Great service and great communication! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to file!!

my review
Mr. Allen was very helpful in explaining all the routes of bankruptcy. All the questions i had to ask, he answered and explained each one, so that i understood . He walked me through the whole experience. He always was just a call away and always returned my calls. My experience was so good that i referred another person that needed a bankruptcy lawyer.

100% Satisified
Mr. Allen helped me every step of the way with my bankruptcy and checking on specifics to make sure everything was how it was to be before filing. He answered any questions I had (I had a good many via email) and was absolutely amazing. I would recommend him to anyone I know. He wasn't expensive either. He was the first one I found after many calls who wasn't an arm and a leg that I could afford.

My experience with Atty Richard Allen
Attorney Allen was very helpful, answered any questions that I had and always made himself available to me anytime. He would get right back to me when I left a message and explained everything that I would need to know about my bankruptcy hearing.

My wife and I felt a bit overwhelmed when we began exploring the possibility of bankruptcy. Attorney Allen's expertise was invaluable in helping us to navigate the process. He presented the pros and cons in a simple, professional manner and expedited our case with efficiency and compassion. We highly recommend his services.

Only problem was he did not get to the hearing early enough to talk with us and go over the questions and answers. But his appointments and advice were excellent
Response from Richard Allen April 26, 2017
I am sorry about your experience at the meeting of creditors. I was addressing the needs of other clients and did not realize you were already seated. I strive to prepare all clients for every step of the case and please accept my apologies.
