Excellent Attorney!
When we called Lindsay Allen with our complicated civil case, Attorney Allen took on our case without hesitation. He quickly understood all the details. He was honest about the time it could take to resolve our case and the possibility of trial. We could see from that first appointment, that Attorney Allen cares about the interest of his clients and justice, more then making money on a case. There were never any surprises. The bills were always reasonable for the time spent. He continually prepared us for what to expect next. His expertise was obvious. Our case ended up going to trial, but with a very positive outcome. This was due to the hard work of Todd and his team. While the road was long, we were well taken care of. It's refreshing to find and attorney that cares and that you can trust. Thanks for all your help!

Gets Results
Todd Allen was the third attorney we had hired in the Naples area. A friend recommended him to us after they saw the problems we were having with our previous attorneys in reference to collecting a Foreign Judgment. Mr. Allen returned my call immediately and I felt very comfortable with him from the very beginning. He knew that time was at the essence and he did not waste time acting on our behalf. He research what he could do for us from the information we had provided to him and within days of signing his contract, he immediately went into action on our behalf. He kept us posted and returned our calls/emails in a relatively quick manner. The outcome was a WIN for us and we can not express our gratitude. I have personally worked for several attorneys over the last 20 years and I can honestly say that even though I have not worked for Mr. Allen I would be proud to do so! I would highly recommend him to everyone and in the future if we need an attorney we will definitely use him again.

Best attorney we have ever hired. Will never use a different attorney again.
Todd is one of a kind and actively dealing with cases for us. He is incredibly thorough, kind and passionate about doing the right thing for his clients. Not only is he articulate but he cuts through all the surrounding fluff to get straight to the point of the matter. The letters he has written on our behalf and the litigation strategies he employs are exemplary and should be framed! No wonder The Daily Show was so interested in covering him!

"....From the moment I spoke to Todd he made me feel like a member of his family"
Todd Allen is an outstanding lawyer! He is innovative, creative and a fearless advocate for his clients. He understands the legal process and also helps his clients understand the process as well. I have been able to confirm this personally due to having used his legal services several times through out the years. I sincerely felt that I was a member of his family and also felt that he was protecting me as if I were one. I wholeheartedly recommend this attorney!!!!

Aggressive attorney, straight-shooter.
I am in the medical field in Naples Florida, and in 2011 I was battling a non-compete clause in my contract to be able to open up my own practice. I was becoming frustrated and growing tired of the lack of performance from my current attorney at the time, and found Todd Allen while flipping through the yellow pages. I met him for a consultation a couple of days later, and after telling him my story and showing him the facts, he picked up the phone and dialed my old employer! I didn't even know what he was doing until he hung up the phone! It was at that moment that I knew Todd was the type of attorney I needed, one who ACTS. Long story short, Todd's representation ultimately allowed me open my own practice only a few short miles away from old employer, and I didn't have to pay an obscene amount of money to do so. I had a billing company breach a contract with my office. Todd represented me and we won that one too. Todd is quick to act, and knows and practices the law WELL. He wins. He is accessible via email and telephone and responds almost immediately. He's written about 10-15 letters to represent me on various issues throughout the past few years --the letters are always powerful and the individuals in receipt of these letters always back down. On the flip side, he's honest and will tell me when I shouldn't pursue certain things. I trust him 200%. Absolutely THE BEST, I'll be his client forever and recommend for any legal matter.

Meet Attorney Allen and Judge for Yourself
Mr. Allen has consistently provided superior service to my condominium and homeowner association clients over the last three years. His well researched advice has regularly saved us time and money in making what have often been complicated decisions. His national notoriety as the result of a successful foreclosure action against Bank of America is indicative of his stellar ability in collections. Mr. Allen has provided our clients with litigation services, consultation on construction deficiencies and served as general counsel on community association matters. If you are considering hiring a lawyer I highly recommend that you meet with Attorney Allen and judge for yourself.

More than a lawyer, Todd is a freedom fighter! Mild mannered but a bull dog in the court room, if your case even gets that far.
As a TV reporter in the Southwest Florida, Todd and I began working together on stories shortly after he first became licensed. Although he may seem mild mannered in dealing with his clients, he is a bull dog when it comes to fighting for their rights. Along with his obvious knowledge of the law, he has a keen sense for the unjust, what will sway opinion and what the public will respond to. He first approached me with stories about the Lee County Court's Rocket Docket program, in which he said his clients were being ramrodded through the speedy foreclosure process without sufficient evidence in favor of the banks during the "Foreclosure Fiasco" several years ago. The viewers went wild. In fact, the National Academy of Arts and Television Sciences nominated that body of work for an Emmy on continuing coverage of the crisis in 2011. That honor would not have been possible without Todd's responsiveness, availability and dedication to his clients in the face of, what he would say, was the county courts' malaise and Big Banking's abuse of power. Many of the stories we worked on went viral, gaining national attention -- not only because of Todd's sincerest sense of right and wrong but also because of his ability to shed light on egregious injustice. Todd Allen is more than an attorney; he is a freedom fighter.

Review for Attorney Todd Allen
“Over the course of the last few years our associations have worked very closely on several different projects with Attorney Todd Allen to include delinquency requirements, Board Certification Program, Rules and Regulations Review, and just general legal counsel questions to name a few. Most notably for us, is the constant that when Attorney Allen indicated something was going to be done it was done in a timely fashion, and always in a professional manner. Our experience with Attorney Allen has been positive, and his clear and concise opinions not only provided the important information we needed in the moment, but he aspired to educate so that a full understanding of the various Florida Statutes, and our own Condominium Documents, were made easy for Board Members to understand.” …Sherry A. Slater, LCAM, General Manager

HOA problems
He helped me settle my account with my HOA. I felt like I could get no where with my HOA. When I hired Mr. Allen I finally felt that someone was listening to me. Thank you for everything!

HOA Bullies
Todd Allen is an extremely professional and competent attorney. His expertise and court acumen surpasses his age and tenure. He stood up for me against an HOA of "good old boys" that no one would take on, with their heavy weight law firm.........and won. Going out on his own, with a partner, will serve him well in the Naples community.

Thank You
Todd was able to help me negotiate a settlement in a dispute with a hospital. He did a great job and got me the best result! He was really good at keeping me up to date on how things were going. I would recommend him with no reservations.

Todd Bruce Allen is a top notch lawyer
I have dealt with numerous lawyers throughout the years and Todd Allen truly is the best of the best. Todd was retained by my wife and I to represent us in an action we had against a large U.S. bank. Todd was able to negotiate a very substantial settlement from the bank. The bank was represented by a very large law firm with offices nationwide. Todd did a professional and thorough job without the need for costly litigation, saving us time and money. I trust Todd to represent us in any legal matter we may have in the future.

Heart, Integrity, Intelligence and Class
When my wife and I first meet Todd we were in quite a mess. We had meet with several other attorneys prior and we left with my wife in tears, hating attorneys. As we left the building, I knew we had a long road ahead of us, I also noticed my wife was smiling. She was calm, she was excited that we meet an attorney that was honest, with a explanation of what we can do, what we needed to do and that he would guide us thru the whole process. And he explaned things in terms we could understand! We have used Todd in several different "law" required situations. He represented us in Bankruptcy, LLC, Fraud, Contracts/Agrrements and we will be using him for Trademark. Our experience thru everything has been the smile and the calm!
