Great attorney and tough litigator.
I've hired Lee on several occasions for all sorts of different matters, from routine non judicial settlement agreements to difficult Orphans' Court litigation matters. He is good with clients and gets the job done. He is very responsive and always returns phone calls the same day which is highly unusual in this profession. His creativity in complex matters and ability to calmly deal with difficult client situations and adversarial counsel makes him stand out from the crowded filed of trust and estates attorneys. I recommend Lee for routine legal matters to complex litigation including appellate work. He is better than most attorneys that cost $100's more per hour.

Smart, efficient, reasonable
Mr Allman helped me with my mother's estate. He was efficient, thorough and his prices were reasonable. He maintained good contact with me, providing updates and timely communications. Complicated paperwork was completed correctly and on schedule.
