I have been practicing family law in King County and Snohomish County for the last 20 years.
I bring a level of personal attention, strategic counseling, and realist budgets in order to maximize my client's results.
Having been trained and served as a Guardian Ad Litem in KIng County, I am fully aware of the process by which the court determines a parenting plan. Serving as an attorney, I am a fierce advocate of my client's interest in having a meaningful relationship with his or her children.
I also have an extensive banking, accounting and finance background that gives me the ability to evaluate the most complex property division issues, such as closely-helding companies, investment portfolios, and stock option valuations.

I endorse this lawyer. Allen knows how to engage in a knock down drag out fight, if needed, but will not needlessly create tension in a case. His advice is precise and practical, which allows clients to make informed decisions about their cases.
