Allowed me to focus on what is important
Chris Allen took the worry of an insurance claim out of my hands and allowed me to focus on my daughter's health. The insurance company refused to accept liability and didn't want to pay the medical bills, after she seriously injured her foot. He fought for my daughter, got the bills paid and got her the compensation she deserved for everything she had gone through. He always took my calls and kept me calm during an emotional time. He's a genuinely nice person and an ethical attorney. I highly recommend Chris Allen!

An attorney you can trust
When you are injured and saddled with burdensome and unexpected medical bills, Chris Allen is the attorney to call. He navigated negotiations with the insurance companies on my behalf. Without him it would have been a daunting task. But with his help it was completely stress-free. He negotiated a fair settlement which allowed me to have follow up treatment. I highly recommend Chris Allen. He communicates with his clients and makes you a priority. I would call him again if the need should ever arise.

Knowledgeable and Experienced
Mr. Allen currently represents me for two auto accidents. Not one time have I ever had to speak with the insurance company regarding my cases. Mr. Allen is always available any time I call to ask a question and is assertive with the insurance companies. I would highly recommend Mr. Allen to anyone who is injured in an auto accident.

Excellent Attorney
I believe Mr. Allen gave me 110% of his attention and that is very important in looking for an attorney. When the case began, he explained in detail what he would do and that he would make every effort to get me what I deserve and he did just that! The time he took wasn't long at all. He kept me informed on what was going on with my case and if at any time I needed to speak to him, if he wasn't there, he would return my call each and every time. He is dependable and will work for you so I highly recommend him.

Excellent
Chris was excellent in the handling of our case. He negotiated to get us the maximum benefits from the insurance company possible without even having to file a lawsuit. He really knew how to handle the insurance company, he was great about explaining how the process works and the good vs. difficult aspects of our case, and he kept us well informed the whole time. I highly recommend Chris to everyone.

Integrity at every level!!!
Chris was amazing from the first phone call until months after my case closed. I never had to call and find out what was going on. He kept me informed and explained the entire process in detail. Chris is a man of integrity. He did what he said he would do at every step and that really mattered to me while I was dealing with a serious personal injury. His staff were very patient, prompt, and courteous. I was able to recover with real peace of mind knowing that Chris and his team were on top of it. I would recommend Chris to anyone needing representation, especially my friends and family. Kudos!

Christopher A Allen Review .. excellent attorney
My strongest recommendation for Mr. Allen. I had injured my hand at work and was going to be out of work for some time. I needed a good attorney and a friend recommended Mr. Allen. From day one, he listened to all of my concerns. Answered all my questions. Always returned my phone calls. He took me thru the process and made it much easier for me. He was able to get me a good settlement and certainly more than I had expected. I can't say enough about Mr. Allen.
