Felt like she was really in my corner
I had a breach of contract case for which I retained ms Allen. She is definitely very professional and very knowledgeable and I loved her confidence. I also felt as though she was advocating for me at every turn . I know that sounds like it shouldn’t be a question when you retain and attorney but you’d be surprised sometimes. Ms Allen definitely was “in my corner” and always looked out for my best interest . At the same time she was down to earth, easy to talk to and didn’t speak over my level of understanding. I Wouldn’t recommend anyone else for employment law.

Great Attorney
I have had to ask Michele many questions over the years we have worked together, Michele is always willing to listen and provide suggestions for next steps. She treats every question as important. She is professional, helpful and I can always count on her to answer any questions I have and provide suggested next steps.

Mr. Anthony Stella
Michele is an amazing woman and an even finer advocate. Her grasp of case law and her way of thinking assures me that retaining Ms. Allen was not only the right decision. I am also extremely impressed with the Michele Allen team. There’s no doubt that they care about my case as much as I do. Finally I have to say that Michele and her team make me feel like family.
