Mr. Allen was very detail orientated in this process. He was very responsive and helpful when it came to the financial part of the divorce. He was able to provide the answers I needed in a short amount of time. He looked at several different options for me and didn't pressure me, he allowed me to make my own decisions. He provided excellent resources for getting a home appraisal and financial advisement help. I am highly satisfied with Mr. Allen and his ability to put his client first. I sought Mr. Allen out as a second opinion from my previous lawyer. After spending 1 hour with him I knew I needed him on my side. He was able to tell me what I needed to know in one visit compared to 5 visits with my previous attorney. Mr. Allen was also very kindhearted and compassionate during this difficult process as was his staff.

I hired Mark to represent me through my divorce. He was always prompt and thorough in responding to my questions. He had my best interests in mind as a father of 2 young boys. In the end, the divorce went smoothly and Mark was there with me every step of the way.

Mark helped me with my divorce and his help was always excellent. He got to the point quickly and got the job done without overcharging. His close relationships with the apposing lawyer and judge made the process quick and efficient.
I would highly recommend him.

I shared office space with Mark and he was always offering helpful advice. His staff is AMAZING. He is very good at client contact. Great family law attorney especially if you have a good deal of assets. Plus he is a wonderful person. Definite credit to the Clay County Bar Association!
