Accidents & Injuries
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.
In my 30+ years as a CPA, I have never worked with a more competent and courteous firm as The Allen Firm. I am a Texas transplant, but Josh Allen made me feel as though I lived here all my life and executed both my business transactions in the most professional and timely manner possible (even called me several times on his vacation!!). I hope he never retires, because I would hate to think I would have to search for a different attorney.
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.
They, particularly Josh Allen, made setting up a 501c3 easy for me. They explained clearly and took care of everything. It was a painless, seamless process.
We went in not knowing how to proceed with some life matters including our last will and testament among some other issues. Josh and his staff made it easy and took care of us completely giving us all of the information we ask for and even some they recommended themselves that we might should consider. Very hospitable and great to work with. Will come back if and when needed for sure.
