The Allen Firm has long been our preferred “go to” for real estate closings. The attorneys and legal assistants have been responsive to our needs, efficient in meeting our desired timelines, and always a pleasure to do business with– We readily recommend their services to others.
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.
Jeremy Derington and April Robinson at The Allen Law Firm were extremely helpful, courteous, and extremely understanding of my situation. Jeremy explained the legal process and answered every question I had, and eased my worries about the process. They were fair and under the circumstances timely and detailed with all documents and processes involved. We even managed to have a laugh or two during it all. I can't express my gratitude enough to Jeremy and the firm. I've never had the need for a lawyer until this particular event entered my life, but make no mistake, Jeremy and the Allen Law Firm will be the only call I make if I need legal services in the future.
The entire team at the Allen Firm are friendly and professional. I especially appreciate their timely work. In the tennis match we call Law; they always keep the ball moving fast to the other side of the court giving you a distinct advantage.
