Allen is an excellent mediator and attorney! Having vast experience in representing both plaintiffs and defendants in his legal practice he has a unique perspective in helping the parties in a mediation see both the positives and negatives in evaluating their case for settlement. He has an extremely high success rate in assisting the parties in reaching resolution at mediation. I strongly recommend him as a mediator and attorney.

I have a very active litigation practice. When the occasion arises for mediation, Allen is at the top of my list as a choice for mediator. He simply gets the job done without a fuss and without first bringing you a lunch menu. He gets to the heart of the case and gets to the point with both sides. He is equal, fair and honest. I use him regularly and would encourage other litigators to do the same.

Allen is one of the few mediators that I've worked with who has that special touch to get difficult +cases settled. I think his success as a mediator stems from his varied background as a litigator himself together with a straightforward and honest approach. Anytime I have a case that is ripe for mediation, Allen's is one of the first names that comes to mind. I highly recommend Allen as a mediator.
