Great attorney
Mr. Jones is an excellent attorney, an expert and a professional. He was able to answer any of my questions I had. He truly cares and did not treat me as a client, he treated me as a friend and even felt as if I were family. If at any time I could not reach Mr. Jones by phone call, he would return my call in a timely manner. Mr. Jones was dedicated to my case ensuring a win in my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Jones to anyone in need of an attorney.

Highly skilled attorney
after being charged with a crime i didn’t commit I contacted Mr. Jones for representation. The charge against me was serious and I was facing prison time. Mr. jones Was with me through the entire process, which was all new to me. When it was finally time for my trial day Mr. Jones defended me intelligently and eloquently. Observing him cross examine a witness or speak to a jury was an opportunity to watch a true professional perform at the top of their game! Mr. Jones assistant Mrs. crystal jones also cares deeply about her job and clients and was there to console my family during the trial process. In the end I was found not guilty by a jury of my peers.

Truly dedicated to your case
Allen has worked tiredlessly over the last 2 years of my on going custody & child support case. He’s been 100% honest & upfront with me on the things I ask vs the things that will happen. My case is not an easy with considering my former spouse is a very difficult individual & has been dragging me back & forth into court for the last 5 years once a year. Whenever my ex filed false charges for harassing communications and I ended up being arrested, Allen was there 20 minutes after I got to the jail. He was reassuring that these charges would be dismissed and he was right! They were and the other party had to pay for court costs. Allen has never wavered. Never told me to give up. He’s always been there whenever I get hit with another filing motion & fights for what is right for us giving his 100%. I found Allen off of this website & I have to say he’s been amazing every time I’ve worked with him. Even whenever I was out of state, he kept up the lines of communication & helped me with my local legal issues. My case is still on going but Allen is still there with our family to navigate through it. Allen is professional at all times and a tremendous help whenever I have questions. I highly recommend him for your criminal as well as civil cases.

Honesty and Integrity
I would like to take a moment to share our experience with Attorney Allen Jones. My case was very difficult because I am a single father, who was in a custody fight to protect my son. My son had been sexually, mentally, and physically abused at his biological mother’s home. My seven-year-old son was hospitalized for suicidal ideation after the Judge had reinstated visitation. After dealing with two other Attorneys in the past, I met with Mr. Jones and knew he was the Attorney for me. He made me feel comfortable and told me not to worry, but to let him do the worrying for me. We sat down and got right down to the facts. He asked me questions that showed me he cared about my situation and my son’s life. Mr. Jones was able to present the facts to the courts which proved our case and the Judge changed his decision. Mr. Jones’ professionalism is seen and felt by his speech, his attire, his being able to communicate and explain issues in terms all people can understand. I believe that without his assistance, my son would still be in harm’s way. I highly recommend Attorney Allen Jones across the board. If you think that the cards are stacked against you, look no further! Just call Attorney Allen Jones. By the way, this is one Attorney that will return your calls.

The Man with a Plan
I am a soldier in the United States army. Allen Jones work with me when I was accused of a crime that I did not commit. Not only did he get the first set of charges dropped he got the second ones dismissed as well. After dealing with this nonsense for almost 2 years thanks to Allen I can finally breathe again. My previous lawyer almost had me take a plea and end up facing probation and maybe even jail time and even FEES!!!! Allen I want to personally thank you so much for working with me and making what felt like the impossible POSSIBLE!!! He did everything my previous lawyer promised me he would do in a year and got it done in 6 months. Allen thanks to you I have all kinds of options and I can continue my career in the army or do whatever else I decide to do! I highly recommend Allen to anyone who wants success in the courtroom! This man will make things happen! If you want a good lawyer who is by your side then you need Allen!!!! Again thank you so much Allen Jones!!! I will forever be greatful!

Review for Allen Jones, Attorney
Over the past year, my family has undergone tremendous change (family deaths, real estate transactions, insurance claims, probate challenges, will designations, etc.). I cannot begin to imagine navigating these waters without Allen's steadfast help and support. Whether my family has reached out to him about an insurance communication we didn't understand, or whether it's been a tight-deadlined probate matter, Allen has, without exception, gone above and beyond to make sure we got the answers and resolution we needed. For example, we recently sold a piece of property that belonged to my father (who recently passed away). A few days before the sale was slated to close, we learned that the will had to be probated. Even though it was in the middle of the holiday season, Allen reached out to the judge and made sure the probate was done in time for our closing. If he hadn't done that, we would have had to begin the entire process all over, which would have likely resulted in the seller backing out. This is one of many, many examples of how committed Allen is to his clients. We take a great deal of comfort knowing that whenever we reach out to him, he will help us get answers we need; it isn't even a question. I trust Allen wholeheartedly and could not recommend Allen more highly.

State Banking Department potential violations of a State Banking Examination
We hired Allen Jones to defend us against a potential violations identified by the Alabama State Banking Department as a result of vague language within the governing statute for the check cashing business. Allen worked quickly and kept us in the loop as to what was happening at all times of the matter. as a result of Allen's work, we were not fined and out procedures and correspondences were made compliant with the law.
