Our son Harvey was a mentally challenged 51 year old. He CHOKED to death on a paratransit bus, which transports only people with disabilities. Our son died because First Transit did not train their bus drivers in first aid including CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. The driver did not enforce the companies own rules.
Charles Harvey Allen is not the kind of person you imagine when you hear the word "Lawyer". He is kind, caring, thoughtful and dedicated. He is brilliant at what he does and his knowledge of medicine made him the perfect attorney for our wrongful death case.
The time work and effort he put into preparing us, the Plaintiff's gave us the confidence we needed to speak to the jury. He advised us to tell the truth and Harvey's story.
Our trial lasted 10 days. The jury came back with a verdict of 100% negligence on the part of First Transit. We were awarded 15 million dollars.
No amount of money will bring our son back. With the help of Charles and our Las Vegas attorneys we plan to start a foundation to educate law makers about "HARVEY'S LAW".
"HARVEY'S LAW" will mandate that all paratransit companies train their bus drivers in basic first aid including CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. We want to get "Harvey's Law" passed in Nevada first and then take it nationwide.
Charles has over 20 years of experience in representing Plaintiff's like us ordinary people not big corporations.
We recommend Charles Harvey Allen law for 100 %

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Charles is tenacious, thorough, and excellent at nurturing client relationships. It was a pleasure litigating a federal trip-and-fall case with him in Alabama last year and I look forward to working with him again.
