I've done business with Allen and Sherry on several occasions and speaking as a 25 year veteran of the United States Air Force this team is simply amazing! I'd also want to include the office staff as well. From the initial meeting and throughout the entire process they are fully engaged. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for all your legal needs.

Allen Brotherton is an outstanding attorney & was able to get my DUI dismissed in Mecklenburg County! I was charged with a DUI a week before graduating law school and assumed I might have just ruined my career. Mr. Brotherton & his amazing paralegal, Sherry, helped me every step of the way and made the entire process much less stressful. They kept me well-informed and answered any questions I had. It was obvious in court that he is very well respected by the judges, other attorneys, and even the police officers who arrested me. He knew how to lighten the mood in a tense courtroom, yet always maintained complete professionalism. He has a thorough knowledge of the law, which was evident when he informed me of new changes in case law that occurred on the same day we had court. He was very honest and realistic about my case, and made sure I was aware of the potential outcomes. I knew my case could have gone either way, and I fully expected to have this on my record. He was patient and rescheduled my case until he felt we would be in front of the right people to have the best possible outcome. His demeanor in court was very courteous, while still being direct and making his argument seem like the obvious conclusion. A little over a year and several trips to court later, he won the hearing and my case was dismissed. Regardless of the outcome, I still would have chosen Mr. Brotherton and written this same review. I am so thankful to him and his staff, and would highly recommend them to anyone needing an experienced attorney!

Very professional. Allen knows the laws as it pertains to each case and he takes each individual case very serious. He and his office staff are very responsive and helpful in answering questions and keeps you informed. His services are affordable and he does not nickel and dime you for every question. He is fair and honest.

Allen is so knowledgeable and really helped me throughout the whole process and even afterwards! He has helped numerous friends of mine and my sister too. Everyone who has ever worked with him will recommend him! You should too! Very affordable and has payment plans that made it easy for me to get top notch representation without paying an arm and a leg up front! :)

I have used Mr. Allen Brotherton on more occasions than I would like to admit, but thankfully he has treated me with the same respect as if it were the first day we met. He was very honest with me with the charges that I was presented and the degree of what the sentencing held, but reassured that he would do everything in his power to fight for me. He was very efficient and making sure I had everything taken care of before my case was heard, which benefited me in the outcome of the proceeding.
His secretary is just as amazing with being on the ball with everything that is asked of her. If Mr. Brotherton is not available for me to talk to personally she makes sure what I need gets done. I have recommended Mr. Brotherton to many of my friends and they are just as pleased.
If you need a lawyer that will always have your back and go the distance, go with Mr. Brotherton.

Allen was referred to me by a colleague regarding a DWI and several other related charges that occurred in Nov 2013. I had absolutely no expectations other than needing representation to help me navigate the process and hopefully mitigate sentencing. After listening to the facts of my case, Allen was up front about the possible penalties but also that there were some areas that may be grounds for dismissal. Going into court that day, I was absolutely prepared for a conviction only to have the DWI and the most serious other charge dismissed. I was amazed. Watching Allen in court along with other lawyers and ADA's, it is extremely evident that he gives respect to and receives the respect of the court. Going into court with anyone other than Allen Brotherton is a disservice to yourself. He is the best there is.
