Allan’s clients especially appreciate his keen ability to navigate them through incredibly difficult and unfamiliar circumstances. His approach focuses on accessibility and efficiency, an experience-based understanding of the tremendous stress and fear his clients experience from being charged with a crime, and an honest evaluation — and aggressive pursuit — of the best possible outcome.
Allan’s clients describe him best. They use words like “creative, hard working, dedicated, tenacious, and incredibly reliable,” “always on call when I needed him,” and someone who plays no games and gets straight to the point and “did everything he could to ease my nerves and make me feel at ease.”Highly Responsive and Available 24/7
Unfortunately, many Connecticut criminal defense attorneys and firms do a poor job of responding to and communicating with their clients. And when someone is made available, it often isn’t your lawyer, but instead someone who may know nothing about your case. That’s unacceptable.
Allan invests himself in his clients’ matters from day one and is personally available 24/7. No matter when you call his office, you’ll speak with Allan himself. Using video conferencing technology, those conversations also can be face-to-face from wherever you are at the time.Ethical, Honest and Efficient
Allan knows that the key to the most successful lawyer-client relationships is effective two-way communication. And his clients know that their honesty about the facts of the matter will be kept in the strictest confidence and relied upon to pursue the best possible outcome.
Allan also leverages his experience and skill to handle cases efficiently and focuses on providing reasonably priced services that offer a great value to clients. This includes payment plans and working within his client’s budget to arrange a practical payment arrangement.
