About me

Please see my website, at


Ms. Allen has
many years of experience in the legal field.  A 2005 graduate of North
Carolina Central University School of Law, Ruth M. Allen was formerly a
Certified Legal Assistant for 15 years. 

Her experience includes estate
planning and probate, guardianship matters, and consumer advocacy.
  She serves as a Guardian Ad Litem in Wake County, and has worked
part time at Legal Aid of North Carolina.

Ms. Allen is a retired
Commander in the United States Navy, having served for over 20 years in the
Reserve Component.

Personal Philosophy:

My main service areas
include bankruptcy (Chapter 7 only) and debt defense. I am interested in
helping those clients who are struggling with harassment by collectors, and who
may be unaware that they can possibly take advantage of North Carolina's
consumer friendly laws and sue the creditor.

I also help people plan
for unforeseen events in their lives, as well as end of life planning. I have
visited many folks in their homes or in hospice to record their final desires
for distribution of their personal belongings, which gives them peace of mind.
