How Our Firm Can Help You

Many criminal defense attorneys take a narrow view and focus only on the criminal charge with a view toward seeking the lowest possible charge, lowest fine, or least amount of jail time. While all of these are significant considerations, the Law Office of Kelli Y. Allen, PLLC employs a comprehensive approach to the practice of criminal law, always analyzing the case for potential collateral consequences such as: Immigration impact, effect on driver’s license or insurance, potential ramifications if ever faced with similar future charges, and impact on any pending or future family law issues such as divorce, alimony, or child custody. This allows our clients to make intelligent, well-informed decisions based on a full understanding and analysis of his/her entire life and future.

Criminal Law, Immigration Law, and Family Law in One Office

The Law Office of Kelli Y. Allen, PLLC also provides immigration services, including removal defense, and family law representation. As there is often significant overlap between these areas and criminal defense, we offer the benefit of having all representation handled by the same firm. This creates a more cost-effective, efficient process and allows for better overall results as all aspects of the case are considered during every step of the process.
