A few years ago, I needed legal help and was reffered to Mr. Allen by a friend. I couldn't be more grateful. He is a professional who not only cares about your legal matters, but also your well being.
Down to earth and friendly, Robert prefers to be on a first name basis with his clients. He helped me with a very personal, and rare harassment case against a previous restuarant employer. In such a messy situation, Mr. Allen went the extra mile to protect myself, my reputation and also make me feel comfortable. Not only did he do his research, he even helped me take it up a notch and file a federal complaint. Robert, worked very hard to make sure our demands were met with no excuses. He was always timely with responses and willing to work around my schedule for meetings and phone calls. Mr. Allen even made routine phone call check-ins to make sure the stress from the case wasn't effecting my emotional stability. Robert listened to me and supported me in confidence in every decision, beginning to end. From translating and explaining legal terms to helping me with a payment plan, Mr. Allen was always there for me. Robert's determination, persistence and knowledge resulted in a generous settlement that I couldn't be happier about. He is , honest and genuinely cares. Not only did Robert help me when I had no where else to turn, he also helped me to become a stronger person. I can not thank him enough for the hard work and support he provided during the toughest of times.

Robert represented me in an employment litigation case and i was pleased with the outcome. When you give him evidence to review, he reviews it an is aggressive in his representation. I look forward to seeing his growth in the future. I will recommend him to others.
