Understandable and direct
Was going through a Probate with a slight complexity using a different lawyer, somewhat unsatisfied and wanted a second opinion. Mr. Allen listened and responded quickly and competently, assuring I fully understood the various aspects, giving me confidence and direction to go forward. The peace of mind was well worth the reasonable fee.

Working With the New (to us) Guy
My wife and I have had the opportunity to work with the Nelson Law Firm a couple of times since the late 1990's. Mr. Lawrence Nelson is a local icon and efficiently represented us in securing the land our current home is on. Subsequently I hired Ms. MaryGail Carver to advise me on commercial real estate issues, and now consider her a personal friend. In the summer of 2019 a residential real estate opportunity presented itself unexpectedly that required us to act quickly. At that point we met Jeffrey Allen, who quickly assessed our situation and structured a Purchase and Sale Agreement for us. Much of the work of moving the negotiations forward were performed by Mr. Allen while he was on a previously scheduled family vacation - definitely service above and beyond expectations. We were highly impressed by Mr. Allen's work and will contact him again if a need arises.

Excellent service, trustworty, personable.
Initially, I hired Jeffrey Allen and his team to draw up my will, financial & medical directives, and power of attorney. Not only was the price reasonable, but the service was impeccable. Jeff explained the process in layman’s terms, which was reassuring. I am glad I chose Jeffrey Allen and his team due to future unforeseen events with my neighbors. Conflicts such as this can be upsetting and challenging, however, I felt a great sense of relief knowing that Jeff and his team had my back. Jeff is personable and he truly shows an interest in my family. It isn’t every day that one can say they are happy to deal with an attorney. I highly recommend you put your trust (literally and figuratively) in the hands of Jeff Allen and his team. You will not regret it!

Worth your business!
It was my pleasure to work with Jeff Allen to handle a somewhat contentious estate settlement. As a young person who had never been through this situation before, Jeff helped me better understand the process and guided me confidently through some very tough conversations and decisions. Jeff is respectful, honest, well prepared and sincere. I also appreciated how easy it was to communicate with Jeff directly - not via an assistant or paralegal. Jeff absolutely values the personal relationships he has with his clients. If you are looking for an attorney who will treat you like family, give Jeff a shout! He is worthy of your business.

Finalizing my property dispute and cleaning up a very complicated title issue
After being in a 5 year legal battle that ended with trial, i was awarded my property i had gone through 4 divorce attorneys and had experienced nothing but turmoil. After a variety of issues popped up concerning my title and payoff, I was recommended to Jeff Allen. What a breath of fresh air after everything I had been through. He immediately made everything happen in days and made sure I didn't spend any more money than I needed to. At one point I asked "Do I owe you more money yet?" He said "nope, we're still good, I've only spent a a couple hours on your case". He wastes no time in getting the work done, he was honest, fair and compassionate. Jeff Allen moved a mountain for me and did it with style and grace. Unlike my experience in a different county. I am forever grateful for his knowledge and professionalism and for closing a very ugly chapter of my life. Thank you Jeff, Wendy Pauling

Excellent Lawyer
I used AVVO to research a family law firm that was recommended to me which lead me to Mr. Allen. During our first meeting I gave him the details of my situation which was very urgent. My case took much longer than normal because of the volatile nature of the situation. At one point a commissioner said in open court this was the ugliest case he had ever seen. Mr. Allen presented the facts of my case, supported with evidence, to the court during several hearings. He spoke with confidence, fully understanding me and my situation. During our many interactions he helped me understand the legal procedures. My case was resolved to my utmost satisfaction. I highly recommend Jeffery Allen to anyone who is looking for fair and thorough representation.

Great Divorce Attorney
I consulted with 2 attorneys prior to meeting with Jeff. I knew in the first 5 minutes he was the one for me. He was very knowledgeable and honest when it came to my divorce, even when the facts did not always benefit me. The attention to my time and money being spent was exceptional. I felt that every minute we used was useful and informational. We were able to settle my divorce in mediation with a fair outcome for both parties. He offered great advice and helped me to make decisions that I would not have otherwise been able to make on my own. I would recommend him to a friend without hesitation.

Screwed me over
I've worked with Jeff Allen since 2015 and have spent over 30k with him. I feel like he didn't represent me to the fullest and was straddling the fence this whole time (which is not what you pay a lawyer to do). I am a young single mom business owner, I have primary custody of my daughter and her dad gets visitation, that's great and all, but dad rarely comes out to see his daughter. Can still count on all my fingers how many times dad has been out to see his daughter since being born to now at almost age 6. Imagine only seeing your child less than 10 times in 6 years. Jeff Allen was my lawyer and drew up the parenting plan for court and due to the verbage he used in the parenting plan (which has been confirmed from 3 separate lawyers) there's nothing to hold dad accountable for establishing a solid relationship before I have to send her across the country at age 7. He now does business law and no longer family law so he can't help in modifying the parenting plan & there's no threshold for modifying due to the verbage he used. Being a business owner myself I was willing to keep him. But at this point I will no longer be doing business with him because I cannot trust that he will fully represent me and I will not recommend him to any fellow business owners
