Attorney Allen provided legal representation for me after an auto accident
The service I received from initial consultation to settlement was exceptional. I was treated in a professional manner by Attorney and support staff. The process felt as though I was working with concerned members of my family. They were patient and responsive to my questions. When I did not understand their explanation regarding a question I may have asked, they were more than willing to repeat or approach their response from a different perspective. I have highly recommended the Allen Law Firm to family, friends and colleagues.

Recommendation for Bill Allen
We highly recommend Bill Allen and his staff for all your legal needs. He is a compassionate, honest man who displays the highest level of integrity. Bill is one of the few attorneys that makes you feel like you are his only client. He (and his staff) were extremely kind during a very difficult period of time. They were always there to counsel and help us. He was always available to discuss what is happening with our case and took great care in educating us on every step of the process. Bill was always present with us at every meeting we had with the opposing parties, doctors, insurance company representatives and mediation. We are very pleased we selected Bill Allen Law to represent us. He is a winner!! Lew and Jo

Wonderful Law Firm
Mr Bill Allen is a very kind caring lawyer that truly is concerned about you personally. This is true for his entire firm. I have dealt more with Adamarie Keeton personally and she is a knowledgeable, sweet, kind and caring person that uses every avenue

The Best Layers Team
My name is Shellie Dunham and I very recently finished settling my bodily injury case with attorney Bill Allen and his team. I say team because the whole office works as a team, it wasn't just one person that helps your case, each one individually went out of their way to do their best in their part of the field, to make my case come through as well as it did. I can't say enough wonderful things about them. I did, and I do feel like I'm treated like family with the Bill Allen's team. I want to thank each and everyone of them for all they've done for me. You will be highly recommended. Forever thankful, Shellie
