I handle personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Although I love my job, I wish I didn't have to do it.  I work with my clients during some of the most difficult times of their lives, be it struggling to cope with the wrongful death of a loved one, to recover from serious injuries suffered in a car accident or because of a slip and fall at a retail store, or to seek compensation for a child mauled by a pit bull and forever scarred. 

At the Allen Law Firm, we focus on representing clients, to the best of our abilities, through these difficult times and fighting to get them the compensation they deserve.  We use our decades of experience to provide practical guidance and strategy to collect compensation from insurance companies and the persons or companies who are responsible for our client's harms and losses.

As I said earlier, I wish I did not have to do this job - I would prefer that my clients not suffer injuries or wrongful death of a loved one in the first place.  Money can never fully make up for the loss of a loved one or for injuries inflicted on our clients due to no fault of their own.  But, when a client does suffer a loss or injuries, I am humbled and honored when they choose me, and my law firm, to help them seek a measure of compensation.

We have offices and meeting locations in Monterey, Santa Cruz and Salinas to serve clients throughout the Monterey Bay Area.  We offer free consultations.  Call us today. .

Semi-Truck Accident
Scott Allen Law Firm did a great job in trying to secure compensation for an accident I was involved in. A semi-truck t-boned my Ford Edge on Hwy. 101 just north of Jolon Road in King City. Myself, my high school son & his classmate survived the accident - unfortunately, the truck driver hit the side that his classmate was sitting. It pains me to recall the challenges this child now has. The truck driver totaled my car. It was said that we were lucky to be alive. Scott and his team were kind & patient in their interaction with us. They would follow through with consistent communication. I trust their approach & handling and, I appreciate their hard work in helping us deal with this case.

Excellent, Professional Attorney with the Knowledge & Experience to Get You the Best Results!
I was involved in a car accident. I hired Scott Allen to represent me in this matter. I hold the highest regards for the professionalism and knowledge he posesses! He was always very attentive in answering all of my questions with honesty and when he said he would follow up or look into something and get right back to me, he would....and he was fast! He always spoke to me when I called! I never felt ignored like I have heard others say about other attorneys, but never heard anything negative here! I highly recommend The Allen Law Firm to anyone who is looking to obtain a professional, knowledgeable attorney! Afterall, he produced the best possible outcome for me and my family. My experience in working with him on my case is that he will work for the best possible outcome for you too!

An attorney with a heart
I was going to hire someone before, but I couldn't because the other attorney wouldn't take a case if the medical expenses are under 25k, so I did everything by myself upto the demand letter that I wrote. My statue of limitation day was 4/10 this year. I hired him on 3/29 after I sent out my demand letter to the othet party's insurance company in case I would need to go for litigation instead of settling my case. He was willing to take my case. He carefully listened to my case, and speed the process of negotiation with the other party. I was able to settle right before the statue of limitation with a very happy result. I would recommend to any person who needs a personal injury attorney. He is an attorney with a good heart. Thank you!

Justice Simplified
After being hit by a red light-runner while driving for work then hospitalized for three nights, I met Scott and hired him to pursue my case. A legal situation seemed like the last thing in the world I needed on my plate at the time mid grad school and cross country relocation. Scott took it off my plate and made the entire experience as pleasant as it could be, all things considered. In 6 months he settled my case and I moved on with my life. He was the companion I needed at the time to help carry the additional burden and I am forever grateful. Thank you again Scott.
