5-star Attorney!
Mr. Allison is currently representing me in a criminal matter in the Douglas judicial circuit. He has been very communicative, diligent, strategic, and well-prepared. I was able to make contact with Mr. Allison after hours and on a weekend, which deserves five stars in and of itself. Mr. Allison is well respected among his peers in the judicial circuit where he practices law, and I would encourage anyone that needs legal assistance to consider Mr. Allison. You will be well pleased.

Very knowledgeable
Mr. Allison is a very caring attorney. He tried my case and won. If I ever require the services of an attorney again, I will definitely call Jimmy again.

(we went to court 1 time) and now he will not return my calls or refund the money
