Service First, Service Now, Service Always.

Efficient results and client specific legal services is why I left the public sector to enter private practice. As a Deputy District Attorney, I fought for the common good for the citizens of El Paso & Teller County. Now as a Private Attorney, I fight for individuals to serve them during difficult times.

Transparency, Creativity, and Loyalty are my core values as an Advocate. But most importantly, I view every case, not as a case number, but as a person with aspirations and a future that must be protected. I am thankful to be a member of the Private Practice community and I’ll be at the ready to serve you and yours if the need arises.

Good man, good Firm!
Mike is fighter for his clients. I went through an awful divorce, and to me it was a scary and defeating experience. Mike and his team would talk me through everything, guide me through each process and sometimes dry my tears when I couldn't take it anymore. He is encouraging, and fights for what's right. I am so glad he was on my side through the hardest thing I've ever done. I never wanted to go through divorce, but it eased my pain to know I had good people working for my good.

Honest and genuine
Mr. Allen was incredibly honest with his feelings about my case. My case was a protection order and he genuinely cared about what I went thru. Mr. Allen made me feel very comfortable with the decisions he would help make for my case and ultimately he was willing to go whichever direction I chose. I would recommend Michael to anyone needing his services. Thank you!

Great Experience!
Michael listened to what I wanted and came up with a strategy to best meet that goal. Not only were we successful, but he made the court date as easy and stress free as possible. I feel fortunate that such a compassionate and talented attorney is willing to help crime victims, and volunteers his time to help myself and others in similar situations!

Protection order assistance
Mr Allen represented me in a protection order case against my husband. He clearly described the process and my options so I could make the best decision for my future peace of mind. He is detailed and honest about various outcomes of the case, which I appreciated. He is also supportive, which meant the world to me in such an emotional case. I would recommend Mr Allen to anyone seeking assistance in family law, especially protection orders.

Great lawyer
I hired Mr. Allen for a protection order case he was able to get the charges dismissed like I wanted. He is very thorough and make sure I understood is step in the process. He is very busy (probably because he’s so good as his job) but I never felt ignored. He was laser focused on my case and I will gladly hire him again if I ever need to! Worth every penny!

Great lawyer!!
Micheal knows what he's talking about when it came to my divorce with property and child custody. He and his para made me feel like I knew what to expect before I did it. He made the process painless for me. Can't say so much about the defendant. Great job Micheal on getting me what I wanted for the most part.

Michael is an amazing lawyer. He understood my issues, and the situation I was in, immediately. His care and determination to my situation greatly impacted the outcome of my proceeding. I can't say enough of how great it feels to have a lawyer that obviously cares and understands the situation you are in.

Best Lawyer I have ever met.
Mike helped me with an absolute battle of a divorce. Helped hire a CFI and fight for child custody. The judge ruled in our favor and my kids are back home with me only because of Mike. A huge thank you to him and the team at Moran & Associates.

Mike and his team have worked tirelessly on my behalf. His effective and personable counsel has guided me through very difficult and complex situations. Mike's expertise has led to positive outcomes in multiple cases. I still retain Mike as an attorney because he's worth it. As a former Army Officer, I wholeheartedly recommend Mike.

Very Impressed
Michael Allen assisted me with my child custody case. As a single Dad, custody disputes can be hard and I not only recommend him but I guarantee once you have used his service you too will look no further. Perhaps the thing that impressed me most about Michael Allen was nothing was "sugar coated". He was very straight forward and told me what to expect each step of the way. Going thru the custody case from start to finish. Mike kept me informed of each step and what the options were and what the risks were. There were no empty promises made just to keep the client happy. Michael is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer that will dominate the opposition in the courtroom and make you feel confident that he is in your corner.

Mr.Allen helped me get the result that I needed from my protection order case. He made everything understandable to the point where I knew what was going on and what was next. He helped me through the difficult times during the case. I would definitely recommend anyone to him to get the best results and help you feel heard.
