Testimonials

  • He was very fair and transparent.

    “All the attorneys that I spoke to in the beginning of my cases gave me gloomy expectations. Then I came to Shay. He was optimistic and confident. He persevered for over 2 years in my case. He always kept it real with me and didn’t sell me a pipe dream. The price he quoted me in the beginning, was the price at the end of my cases. There were no hidden costs. He was very fair and transparent. I am very happy to recommend him.”

  • He is someone I can trust and I can truly call him a friend.

    At first I wasn’t convinced Attorney Allen was right for my DUI. He was going so lightly at the beginning of my case. But he assured me it wasn’t the right time to drop the hammer in my case. He told me to just wait. Even though I was scared, I saw the passion and emotion in him fighting my case. He was really fighting for me while the State was building their case to the Judge. During the trial, I really like he stressed that the officer never should have followed or pulled me over. Waiting worked and we won!  I couldn’t be happier! He did an excellent job and was very professional. He even gave me his personal cell phone number so I could contact him during my case. Then after winning my DUI case, he helped with the expungment process.

    Now I call Mr. Allen for all my legal matters, whether it’s for my parents or I need some advice. I can literally ask him anything! Mr. Allen has always been a great ear. He is someone I can trust and I can truly call him a friend. He’ll be in my phone for the rest of my life.
