Made a really hard experience easy
Allen brought us in for a free consultation, where he helped us sort out the details of my son's case and gave us a thorough overview of all of our options moving forward. We left feeling empowered and confident and like we had a of of attack. Allen went on to provide us with a top-notch defense that resulted in the best possible outcome we could have hoped for. He was honestly a lifesaver. I can't recommend him enough!

Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Allen for a number of years. I have always found him to be a capable and aggressive attorney. As a prosecutor, Allen was always prepared and prosecuted his cases in a tough fashion. I’ve had the opportunity to watch him as a fellow defense attorney and he brings that same preparedness and toughness. Allen is definitely an asset to the defense bar and will no doubt serve his clients well."

"Allen is an experienced trial lawyer that provides excellent results in the courtroom. He is thorough and aggressive in his legal representation. I endorse him without reservation. He does not roll over with things get rough; he always fights back."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Allen for several years. I’ve personally worked alongside him and learned from him. Allen earned my respect right away not only because of his aptitude as a lawyer but also because of his integrity as a person. You will be in good hands if you hire Allen. I endorse this lawyer!"
Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Allen is a superb lawyer with tons of great experience. He is skilled, cares about his clients, and works hard to get them the best results attainable. Allen was a mentor to me when I began my criminal defense practice and has continued to be a go to for me when I need advice. I highly endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 20
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"So, being limited to 1000 characters in this peer review box just means I cannot do justice with this endorsement. Allen and I were both former police officers, prosecutors, and now defense lawyers. Allen is so skilled in the criminal law area, it will amaze you. I can tell you that if I was in trouble in Murfreesboro, or anywhere in Tennessee actually... I would be greatly relieved to see Allen walk into my cell. He is a masterful lawyer, with mad trial skills. I endorse him without reservation. (plus, I call him frequently for advice and to team up on cases, as I did just this morning). Great lawyer."
