We hired Mr. Allen after he was recommended from a family member. We had a different kind of adoption that was contested on one side. Before Mr. Allen we had an attorney handle our guardianship every time I talked with her I felt unsecure. I called Allen and Rector. Immediately was set with an appointment over the phone with Mr. Allen. We talked for awhile, he calmed me down, answered every big and little question. Made us feel heard and addressed our worries. Through waiting for court every email and phone call for even the smallest of questions was answered. I never felt like a burden. His whole staff is amazing especially Starla. God really has gifted this office with amazing staff. Thank you all so much and 6 months down the line our dreams will come true and adoption will be complete thanks to Allen and Rector!

Mr. Allen handled the trust for our family and did an excellent job. He was very good at taking care of all details in the beginning and with all follow up issues.I would recommend him to anyone needing an attorney for estate planning, trusts, or wills.

Well versed attorney with great "bed side" quality combined with anticipation, strategy, and adaptability as circumstances/events developed. Exceptional courtroom performance and interaction with appropriate jurisdictional entities, i.e. Judge, Prosecuting Attorney, etc. throughout the procedure. If in need of legal assistance in Laclede County, hire Mr. Allen and you will not regret it. This was for a difficult, yet questionable traffic citation. Quite reasonable financially and located across the street from the court house(behind). This helps. He and his staff have great rapport with the jurisdictional personnel.

Where do I start as both Mr. Allen and his staff as they are very professional and exceeded my expectations involving what I thought was a simple adoption that turned into processing an international adoption with State Department forms and Hague Convention requirements. When we first met Mr. Allen he was straight forward about taking the case and some of the issues we might encounter with our granddaughter being German. Basically, the cost did not bother me but I thought it would be an easy adoption as both biological parents signed the rights over for us to adopt.
There is a lot to learn but international adoption from our case but both Mr. Allen and Ms. Queen exceeded the standards several times when issues popped like having a home study approved by the State Department and making phone calls to resolve the rejection of our State Department forms due to little issues. I seriously thought the cost of this adoption was going to increase as more issues were involved in getting the case properly ajuducated through the legal system but Mr. Allen said we would stick to te agreed fee and would accept the challenge as it was unique.
Having a great staff and someone like Ms. Queen to follow up on paperwork and phone calls on the status of the case is what makes a business successful as often the client just needs a status of where are we at and the plan for the road ahead which makes Allen & Allen a highly recommended firm to seek for legal issues. At the actual day of being in court with the judge Mr. Allen was excellent in the legal portion of the court between our now daughter and the judge as he took the time to let her know what was going to happen in the court as she gets very nervous with unknown folks.
In closing, I highly recommend Mr. Allen and his firm as I am taking the time out to personally thank all the folks involved with the successful adoption of our daughter. This is a great reflection upon Mr. Allen, Allen & Allen firm, and the city of Lebanon, Missouri.

Mr. Allen and his associates have by far exceeded my expectations with far and above satisfactory results! After reviewing numerous candidates I believed he was the best attorney to hire but with the amazing results he produces, he is "My attorney for LIFE"!!

Christopher Allen helped get my case dismissed by the court. When I came to him with my problem he listened, gave me advice, and immediately told me he would help me for a flat rate with a court date less than a week away! Thanks!!

I met with Mr. Allen regarding difficult custody issue. I was unsure and unaware of my legal rights. He was very upfront and honest with the situation. I found him easy to talk with as he listened to my questions and gave me answers in a way I could understand. He worked with me and encouraged me. He is hard working professional with a caring side. If I would of hired anyone else I would of lost. We now have a new chance for a new life.
