Mallory Allen is a devoted legal advocate for physically and emotionally injured people. She is a uniquely talented strategist, effective negotiator, and savvy trial lawyer. She has tried numerous cases to verdict in both state and federal courts, logging several seven- and eight-figure awards for her clients—victims of medical malpractice, dental malpractice, sex abuse, and other personal injuries.

Mallory prioritizes and takes pride in putting clients at ease throughout the legal process. She believes that injured persons should work on their physical and emotional recovery and healing, not stress over lawsuits—that’s her job. Injury cases are notoriously complex and confusing for many clients, so Mallory makes them simple to understand. She speaks to her clients in plain English. She thoroughly explains each situation, clearly presenting all options to ensure they have everything they need to make informed and wise decisions.

And she thrives under high-pressure situations—always keeping a calm and cool demeanor, while still thinking multiple steps ahead.

Although many injury cases are resolved out of court, Mallory always prepares as if they will go to trial. The reasons behind her strategy are several. It indicates to adverse parties that the facts are on her client’s side—that she has “teeth” behind her positions—and gives her clients an edge in pre-trial negotiations by signaling that they are ready, willing, and able to fight it out in court for the win, if needed.
