Today, Allen Law is known among our clients for our highly effective legal strategies (and our office humor… seriously—we love lawyer jokes). But we didn’t get there overnight. Our founder and lead criminal defense lawyer, Jamal Allen, has 30+ years of experience in and out of courtrooms, and our entire legal team has 75+ years of combined experience working cases right here in Arizona and around the country. We handle cases for local residents, tourists, and snowbirds. After Jamal graduated from Arizona State University College of Law, he spent some time working for a large civil law firm in this area. His time in the trenches in civil litigation allowed Jamal to fine-tune his legal strategies and research skills. Following this, Jamal became a prosecutor for Maricopa County working on a variety of criminal cases. In fact, being able to analyze cases from the perspective of a prosecutor makes Jamal uniquely qualified to defend people. In 1998, Jamal decided to give the legal field something it often lacks: empathy, compassion, and a genuine human connection. So, he opened the doors of Allen Law —a personal injury and criminal defense law firm that provides real solutions to real people facing real problems.
