For over 25 years I have been and continue to be a dedicated and zealous advocate for my clients. I truly love family law and enjoy being in the courtroom.  I have met thousands of clients in crisis, listened to their stories and provided advice that I felt was the best for each client in their unique situation.  I conduct client led consultations that allow folks to tell me their story so that I can provide guidance tailored to each family.  Born and raised in North Carolina, and practicing in Union County since 1998, I have practiced every day in front of judges and other lawyers in the same district.  This means that each client benefits from each and every day of experience I have had in front of the very Judge that may be assigned to your case.

Best lawyer, gets the job done and cares
I had consultations with about 7 other lawyers since it was a complicated child custody case. Most of them just wanted me to retain them. Allison explained the likely outcomes and best way to proceed. She didn't just try to take my money. My ex and I were able to come to an agreement saving many thousands of dollars and much stress. I have a friend who was not able to collect alimony from her husband. Her original attorney was no help. I recommended Allison and she was able to take care of the problem which was a lot of work, but she did it, and my friend's husband had to pay the attorney fees. Another friend got a great result also with a custody case. I highly recommend her above all other Union County family lawyers.

Fantastic Attorney
Allison Kahn was highly recommended to me by two other lawyers that did not handle family law. From the beginning, she was very patient and thoroughly answered all my questions. In my case, I was involved in a custody battle. Allison well prepared the witnesses and myself for the trial. I felt that I was in the best of hands and that she personally cared.

Simply The Best
Allison Khan is an outstanding attorney. She is clearly one of the best in the field of family law. If you want the best lawyer working on your case, she is the one you want. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in the field. She was very supportive of me and my situation. She impressed me not only with the professionalism, but also with the art of communication as an outstanding attorney. I can honestly say that she had a tremendous impact on my life. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for Mrs. Khan. I felt like I was in best of hands with her. She was wonderful, supportive, and dedicated to my case.

After my first consultation with Allison I knew she was with right person for job. My divorce had been dragging on and on with no end in sight. After hiring Allison that all changed. Her attention to detail and no nonsense approach is what was needed to bring the case to an end. ALLISON IS A WINNER!!!

Attorney Allison Khan great attorney
I was referred to Attorney Allison Khan, when I met with Attorney Khan from day one she was very attentive to my case regarding custody and changing jurisdiction. In addition, her office staff was so pleasant and helpful as well. She was very helpful and always kept me in the loop and understanding the process. When we went to court Attorney Khan was amazing! She knew the law inside and out, nothing was getting over on her. She owned that court room. I was so proud and overjoyed we won our case. Most importantly, before I met Attorney Khan I had spoke to other lawyers that charged a lot of money, and made me feel like I was just a number. Attorney Khan is not that at all, she's reasonable, affordable and truly cares about you and your situation. I would highly recommend hiring Attorney Allison Khan if you are looking for a lawyer.

My Personal Experience With Khan Law Offices
Words cannot express the appreciation I have for Allison and her staff. I found Allison to be professional, bright, and most importantly, compassionate and committed to helping her clients. She was my advocate for me and my two children during my divorce, which involved domestic violence and a custody case, and always made me feel comfortable and secure under the unique circumstances. She brings a warm and kind personality to situations that aren’t always the most comfortable. I found the Khan Law Firm to be hard-working, attentive and informative to my needs, especially with returning my phone calls to any questions or concerns I had. Because of her advocating for my personal interests and the best interests of my children, I will always recommend Khan Law Offices. This is the firm where I found the word “success” meant the ability to absolutely trust my lawyer and her commitment to my case. Suzanne

Only the Best
I have known Allison and her wonderful staff for going on 6 years now. They are truly a blessing to have during the situation I was going through and sometimes still am. Allison is always 100% honest and will always tell you the truth. She is also very loyal. Angela, her paralegal is also very friendly and is a huge compliment to their staff! They truly care about their clients and it shows in the way they treat you. I am completely satisfied with the representation I have received from Allison. She is the very best and is extremely knowledgeable about the legal system. I will continue to use her when need be and highly recommend her to others as well.

Outstanding Family Law Firm
I would like to take the time to say “Thank You” for the outstanding and professional legal service you and The Khan Law Office has demonstrated to me over the last four years. Allison Khan represented me during what I would call a long drawn out divorce process, during this time you have shown me that not only do you have a great understanding of the law, but a compassion for your client’s wellbeing. I found that you [Allison] were always well prepared throughout our countless office consultations, court appearances, depositions and the many mediation conferences we encountered during this undertaking. I would also like to thank your paralegal Angela who was very detailed oriented and kept me informed as to how the case(s) were proceeding and what was needed from me during this very demanding time. I would highly recommend Allison Khan and the Khan Law Office as an extremely knowledgeable and competent family law attorney and firm.

Satisfied Client
Allison excels in the courtroom and understood my case and my needs, but most of all she put my children first, and fought for all of us.

Solid, Professional, Personable, Caring Attorney
I met Allison by recommendation. From my first conversation with her in 2012 I felt at ease. My family issues were heartbreaking and she not only provided a voice of empathy, the counsel she gave was solid. She is always thinking ahead. I have come to appreciate the work she does with admiration. Not one moment have I ever worried where Allison stood. Family law issues, I have learned, can be extremely emotionally charged and complex. You must have an attorney that can hold both of these sometimes warring issues in balance. Allison is that attorney. I am most thankful for all her time and efforts.
