Accidents, injuries and property damage can be life altering occurrences. Our team of attorneys has assisted individuals and companies obtain monetary compensation for their injuries and property damages. Additionally, our litigation team has defended individuals and companies against damage claims.
Probate and administration of estates refers to the process by which the personal business affairs and assets of a deceased individual are handled and distributed to the deceased’s heirs or beneficiaries in accordance with the estate planning documents or applicable law. Our team of attorneys is experienced in the probate and administration process. Specifically, we can help you submit a Will for probate, appoint the executor, and guide you through the probate process ending payment of any debts and distribution of all assets.
Our attorneys have been on both sides of the table when it comes to civil lawsuits. We have filed and defended many lawsuits in the North Central Texas area ranging from car accidents to complex oil and gas matters. Our primary practice is before all Texas State Courts and the Federal Bankruptcy Courts located in the Northern District of Texas. Our firm has particular experience representing clients in the agriculture, banking and finance, oil and gas and construction industries.
For each matter, our firm seeks to establish a defined strategy so that the matter is conducted in a cost-effective manner. Some situations require aggressive action, while others require early negotiations or mediation to avoid costly litigation.
The Allen Firm has been very helpful in assisting our company with some difficult collections issues. I appreciate their responsiveness and insight in answering questions about accounts receivable and past due customers. Their professionalism and courtesy set them apart.
Fast, efficient, high quality work and the Allen Firm takes care of the details so that I do not have to.
From the moment we entered The Allen Firm, we were greeted with a smile and had an amazing experience. Getting a will in place before we leave the country was important to us and the whole process from start to finish went exceptionally well. Cannot believe how smooth and quickly they got everything completed. We are so thankful to be able to use a firm that we 100% trust. I highly recommend The Allen Firm and I guarantee you will not regret using them!
Josh did a fantastic job representing me at closing by working with the title company to ensure the title policy was air tight. I really appreciated how well he understood what we were needing him to do.
