Attorney Allen relies on years of experience to navigate the ins and outs of the courtroom. He’ll make sure you understand the legal process related to your personal injury, contract or criminal law case.

Attorney Allen came from a military family in which neither of his parents attended college. Born in Arkansas, Melvin zig-zagged across the country, living in more than 4 states before graduating High School in nearby Virginia.

While living in California, Attorney Allen witnessed the ‘Trial of the Century’ and began researching the field of law at a young age. Coming from Arkansas originally, the ascent of Bill Clinton was also highly influential to Attorney Allen. Family members worked with Bill in the years before being elected President, and this taught a lesson to a young Melvin that a kid from Arkansas could do whatever his hard work and good fortune allowed.

Today, Attorney Melvin L. Allen, Jr. is an experienced trial lawyer and considered an expert in cases regarding sex offenses, constitutional law, and fourth amendment cases. He will tireless advocate for a client, whether they’ve been charged with a crime or injured due to the negligence of another.
