Jennifer did a wonderful job on my case when my employer let me go because of a temporary medical condition.I felt like my family was representing me.She was always focused on my well being first.I was greeted each time by a handshake and an offer of refreshments with a courteous smile.The concern for my welfare showed a level of compassion I didn't expect as this was my first need of an attorney.Jennifer's experience,knowledge and taking the task to hand gave me hope that I would have a very positive outcome in my case.Her balance of explaining the legal ins and outs of my case and what were the realistic damages by the law's definition helped me immensely through a difficult time.The end result was a professional job well done and a satisfactory settlement by my previous employer.Thank you again Jennifer for all your hard work and attention to all the details!

I was very impressed with Jennifer. Having been in the legal field myself for over 30 years, I have seen the best and the worst in attorneys. Jennifer is an excellent attorney. She was very responsive; I received answers to every question within hours - and she was quick to update me as she learned of things. She is very knowledgeable and can explain things in layman's terms - so anyone can understand. I was very happy with her work, the outcome of our case, and would use her again without hesitation!

Ms. Allen has a tremendous attention to detail, and also perceives issues that most others would miss. She was thorough in her preparations for discovery, deposition, and trial. Her execution was exemplary as a result of that meticulous preparation.
She showed great insight in the probing and tenacious questions she prepared for and used during deposition.
She always gave us an honest and realistic opinion of where we stood during discovery and as we prepared for trial. Her advice regarding compromise and our legal footing was extraordinary, and was instrumental in the favorable outcome of our case.
I would use her and her firm again for any dispute that warranted hiring an attorney, and highly recommend her and her firm.

Jennifer has been on our litigation team for several years. During a recent jury trial I was amazed at her impassioned and compelling arguments the the judge and jury. Jennifer's affinity for women's rights and compassion for the disabled has been an inspiration to the entire firm.
