First let me say I never write reviews on anything, so whoever reads this please know my story is real and my case was a nightmare. From the first consultation Mr. Allen understood my situation, he genuinely cared and helped carry my stress, he always gave me the truth even when I had hard questions; he was very informative during the year we worked on my case. Thanks to Mr. Allen's strategic planning he saved my military career and I was able to retire. My case had me stressed out and depressed, but Ed kept my spirits up and my case played out exactly how he planned it to. He has years of experience on both the prosecution and defense side of the house and knew how to posture the case to our benefit. I was up against serious charges and could have spent a long time away even though I was innocent. Ed saved my career, and future. There are many lawyers you could hire to fight for you, but understand your best outcome will be with Ed standing beside you in court.

And was referred to me by a bail bondsman who had heard good things about his practice. In meeting with ED I had discovered that he was formerly a prosecuting attorney which made me feel extremely comfortable given that he had an inside track an extensive knowledge of now both sides of the law which I found to be extremely effective when handling my case. Over the duration of My case I was able to leave the state to return back to Utah where I was living, working and finishing my undergrad at BYU I am from Seattle and the alleged activity in which I was accused was found here. ed was able to convince the judge and the prosecutor to let me return back to Utah during the duration of the case which from what I understand is typically a difficult feat and having the alleged leave the state in fear of never returning. I was a consultant at the time and traveled extensively for work, mr. Allen was able to even convince the judge to let me fly out of the country to Mexico on two occasions one for work and one for holiday. This again from my understanding was unheard of. Not only did ed have a great relationship with the prosecuting attorney judge and anyone involved in my case on the states end... he was able to come back any objection from the prosecutor that allowed me essentially to walk a free man and oblige any request I made. In the end he was able to get the felony charges against me reduced down to a low class misdemeanor which effectively saved my career my life my reputation and most importantly my freedom. I would definitely recommend Mr Allenn to anyone seeking legal representation

I decided to hire Ed for a DUI charge after interviewing other attorneys. Best decision ever. From our first meeting on, he put me at ease and laid out a plan that I was comfortable with and understood. What impressed me most about Ed were his exceptional courtroom skills and determination. He was always prepared for my hearings and he'd prepare me too, which was such a relief. Ed's knowledge of the law in my type of case, as well as general court procedures, gave me confidence every time I had to stand in front of the judge. He is well experienced in the courtroom, intelligent, and quick on his feet. He worked every possible aspect and chased down every possible lead to strengthen my case and negotiate with the prosecutor. I would hire him again in an instant if needed, and I strongly recommend him to anyone in need of representation.

We were referred to Ed by a friend who had worked with him a few years ago. They said that he would treat us well and give us the best legal care possible:Ed did not disappoint.
He is not only easy to talk to, honest and sincerely wanting to help but he is also extremely familiar with the entire legal system in Washington State and all participants.
Ed always responded to us promptly, gave us very fair and honest advice and was by our side throughout the entire ordeal.
The infraction could have resulted in a severe punishment and due to Ed's expertise and highly regarded reputation, he allowed us to receive a much lighter sentence.
I cannot say enough about how satisfied we were with Ed's services.

Ed did an amazing job of putting us at ease in a difficult situation. He was caring, efficient and knowledgeable with what needed to be done. He had us do some homework ahead of time that made us look better in the eyes of the court and he was there every step of the way speaking on our behalf. Ed was comfortable in the courtroom and had a good rapport with every official we encountered. The end result was a successful outcome with no lifelong effects...we are thrilled!
I would highly recommend Ed and would use him again BUT hope we won't ever need to!

Ed was extremely helpful. He did a wonderful job. The were a few doors left slightly open by the prosecution and he made sure he opened them wide open. He was very thorough and knowledgeable when it came to past cases that set helpful precedence for case. In the end we were granted a dismissal. It was a long process, but Ed was there whole way and I never doubted his advice once. What should have been a very hard and scary process was made easy and comfortable by Ed and with out a doubt is a representation of his personal character and his professional spirit. Without hesitation I would call on Ed again or recommend him to anyone who needed representation.

Great Lawyer, A+++++, I will recommend him to anyone. He is very caring and understanding in regards to the case, and determined to find the truth when the truth is obscured by the complaint party. He made sure to understand what was really going on, in regards to my wife's case. He took the extra miles to defend my wife and helped the prosecutor to understand the reality in regards to my wife's case. I really appreciate his effort, intelligence and talent in regards to his advice and defending the case.

Ed Allen was very professional and effective. He handled my case very well from beginning to end and he accurately foresaw the outcome in my daughters case. She was able to avoid charges in lieu of attending counseling. I believe it was Mr. Allen's ability to understand my case, in addition to really working well with the prosecutor that made the difference.

I have hired Ed two times in the past and he has been wonderful. If I hadn't had him by my side I would have been even more worried then I was. Ed is extremely smart, and knows the system. Also, he has experience with many of the other people in the courts and can usually call them by name. I feel like if I had hired anyone else I would be in a much different situation then I am now and I am thankful of Ed everyday for it.
