Juvenile felony possession case DISMISSED
My son is a good kid, has never been in trouble, tested negative for drugs, plays football/baseball, has very involved parents and a loving home and somehow found himself charged with felony possession (thc vape). We were totally beside ourselves! We had consultations with 6 attorneys! All were more than double what Chris charged! Chris took his time, explained his thoughts, carefully thought through our situation and took time to review everything, he seemed genuinely caring. He was recommended to us by many people on the I love Conroe Facebook page. Hands down the best decision we made. So grateful he was able to get our son’s case dismissed!

THE MOST Upstanding lawyer, Goes above & Beyond!
My son’s case was a complex one. He was facing 3 assault charges, 2 of them felonies, on one officer’s false and highly inaccurate account of events in the police report. Mr. Allen and his team worked tirelessly with me to get the documentation needed to get the case dismissed and I couldn’t be more satisfied. Thank you so much, Mr. Allen, for your hard work and dedication.

Honest and straightforward
Chris took on 2 felonies and a misdemeanor of mine showing up on 4 different occasions to try and get my charges dismissed. It took a lot of time but after a few months all were dropped and he communicated with me the whole time and kept me updated on what was going on. I highly recommend using Chris.

Absolutely recommend
I had the pleasure of working with Mr.Allen on 2 legal matters, and I cannot recommend him enough. From the initial consultation to the resolution of my case, he was professional, knowledgeable, and attentive to my needs. He took the time to explain every step of the process to me, and made sure I understood all of my options before making any decisions. Mr. Allen was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had via meetings, phone calls and email, and he kept me updated on the progress of my case every step of the way. He was also very thorough in preparing for my case, which ultimately led to a favourable outcome. I truly appreciate Mr. Allen’s hard work and dedication to my case. He exceeded my expectations in every way, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you for all your help!

A True God Send!
You know I have heard the phrase "A God Send" all my life but until this past November I witnessed the epitome of that saying... my grandson for the first time in his eighteen year old life got in trouble at school and ended up in jail. We were horrified and not ever having experienced this we had no idea what you do it was a nightmare but on that Sunday morning someone at church said I know a lawyer that could help you his name is Chris Allen and he's got a lot of experience and is a really good man. I was thanking God all the way to my cell phone...I called we had a meeting he told us everything that would happen everything we needed to do and he would take care of it all...tons of pressure just drifted away Chris was so calm so reassuring but made clear to my grandson he had to make better decisions starting right now...and he did everything Chris Asked and Chris did everything he said he would do and today the case was dismissed ...we have cried hugged and and realised that Chris Allen was truly "A God send" And we have thanked God every day for him.

If you are scrolling to find reviews to choose an attorney look no more. Mr. Allen went above and beyond what you would expect from a good attorney and he walked me through my situation during difficult times concerning my case. Mr Allen not only represented me in a top notch manner but HE GOT MY CASE DISMISSED! I can’t thank him enough for being there for me and hopefully you will make the right decision to put him in your corner . I cannot say enough about the communication and representation!

Excellent representation
Words are inadequate to express my appreciation for Mr. Allen’s representation. He listened patiently, was very responsive to all my inquiries and more importantly treated me with respect and believed in me. He is very knowledgeable of the local system and got me back to my life in record time with a dismissal.

Knowledgeable and Caring!
I couldn’t have asked for a better team! When my disabled brother was arrested, I didn’t know who to call or where to turn. I searched lawyers in Montgomery County and came across the Law offices of Chris Allen and Bill Pattillo. After reading their profiles I called the office and was able to speak directly to Chris! He explained the entire process and what we could expect. Of all the other offices I called, they were the only office where I was able to speak directly to a lawyer. This demonstrated to me, the care that these lawyers would take with my brother’s case. Chris and Bill were able to get his case dismissed very quickly.

A Blessing
My family and I are forever grateful for everything Chris Allen did for us while representing a family member. We were referred to Mr. Allen and contacted him right away. From the initial consultation we had, hiring him, to the ending of the court case by way of a dismissal, Mr. Allen gave us peace of mind and what to expect. He definitely helped make a stressful situation less complex with his expertise and guidance. He was very personable and quick to respond to emails anytime there was a question or a concern. Everything was taken care of in a timely manner with exceptional follow through. If you are looking to hire an attorney as we did, you will be in great hands with Mr. Allen! Thank you for being a blessing to our family and our family member Mr. Allen! Peace and blessings.

Dismissed!
We didn't even have to appear at court, which was the best case scenario for us. He didn't promise this, but mentioned it when he took the case. It was a lot of money for a couple of phone calls, but other attorneys charge even more and didn't seem as confident of a simple solution as Mr. Allen did, so his expertise and knowledge were well worth it.

Juvenile
Chris helped us get all of my daughters charges dropped when the prosecution was pushing to have her plea guilty on all charges. Chris helped us work through the programs and successfully get all of my daughter charges dropped with no repercussions. We had a lawyer previously who took a year to not get much done and within just a couple of months Chris had everything done. We are so thankful for him and his time!
