Amazing Attorney
I worked with Mr. Armstrong during a difficult case with a difficult insurance company, and he never failed to represent my interests The insurance company was very difficult. Mr. Armstrong handled my needs and I was able to focus on my recuperation, instead of needless drama with the insurance company I have a brain injury from the wreck and I know I can be difficult to deal with. Mr. Armstrong and all professionals at Allen & Allen have been wonderful. I really can't speak highly enough of my attorney. I certainly hope I never need another accident attorney, but I certainly know where I'll go, if I do I can't think of another firm or attorney I'd want handling my personal affairs. My only regret was that that I couldn't retain Mr. Armstrong for my personal counsel.
