    Far too often people who suffer injury unknowingly forfeit their rights because they believe what the insurance adjusters tell them. Insurance companies challenge personal injury claims and protect their profits — sometimes going so far as to engage in insurance bad faith.

Excellant results from David Allen Associates
I initially applied for Social Security Disability benefits and my claim was denied. I referred my case to David Allen to file an appeal and handle my case. They promptly prepared and filed the appeal, I was advised that should the matter require a formal hearing, the process could take upwards of 18 months. After only a few months, we were advised by the Social Security Administration, that upon review of the documents submitted with the appeal, they reconsidered and awarded me the benefits I was due, including retro active payment from the date of occurrence. I was impressed with both the short time it took to resolve the matter, as well as the little effort required on my part, past the initial interview/consultation. They were very professional throughout the process. For these reasons I would highly recommend them for people who could benefit from their services. Ron

The Man
When I was turned down for SSI David Allen took over my case immediately. I requested my file from my doctor, sent it to Mr Allen and he took it from there. I was awarded my SSI in a very short time and was able to get my life back. With being disabled and unable to work he made it possible for me to support myself. I recommend David Allen to everyone. Thank you immensely David Allen & Associates.

Nothing but the best
After a bad experience with another attorney and time running out, I was desperate to find another attorney. I came across David Allen & Associates. At first I was apprehensive because of all the ads on radio & TV. I was afraid the firm would be sort of "unsuitable" for me, but I was pleasantly surprised. I met with Andrew Lewellyn, their intern who is also their case intake. As it turned out he handled my entire case and did a fine job. My case was somewhat complex and Andrew had all of the support from the top notch attorneys when we needed it. His responses were timely, professional and to the point. My case settled in a positive fashion and I couldn't be more pleased.
