Having worked with attorneys for 30+ years, I know what glaring issues are. I had no issues rising out of Mr. Allen’s representation of me. He and his staff kept in constant communication with me, responding to my many inquiries, whether my inquiry was via telephone call or e-mail. He and his staff were proactive in keeping me apprised of all developments, anticipating my questions prior to my asking them, and Mr. Allen provided me with straight, sound advice. In addition, his expanded work hours were of great benefit to myself, and any other individual who finds making meetings with attorneys during restrictive 9-5 hours impossible. I would recommend Mr. Allen to an individual who might have a employer-related issue or potential EEOC matter.– Former Employment Client

I was a skeptic having found Tyler on google and unsure he could help me. Little did I know, Tyler helped me fight two tickets and got me out of four points on my license and $600 in fees. If it weren’t for him, I would’ve had my driver’s license suspended and in serious debt. In addition to being knowledgeable and professional, his office was great to work with and everyone was pleasant and helpful. I have recommended him to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so – can’t say enough great things about him. Thank you, Tyler! – Former Traffic Client

Tyler was referred to me by another friend who is a lawyer. His practice took care of me, and when I say practice, the entire Tyler Allen Team defended me. Everyone was responsive, and whenever I had a question, there was no hesitation in asking. I will refer him and his team for defense against any violation in the Scottsdale Az area. – Former Criminal Defense Client

Shannon’s Client Reviews

I was in an impossible and hopeless situation. Extradited from another state, I was in Maricopa County less than 2 hours when Shannon came to visit me. Every time I saw her after that day, she was informed and clearly presented to me my options. Because of her detailed diligence in my court case, she secured for me a very favorable plea deal that I believe another lawyer would not have been able to obtain for me. Even so, she never tried to pressure me into accepting it, but was ready to go to trial if I said the word. Her stellar work did not stop there. She continued to work hard for mitigation, and her efforts in my case are the reason that I can write this review today, because I am not in prison. In general, I feel the state of Arizona is blindly overzealous in its prosecution of criminal cases. Shannon was an expert navigator of this confusing and frustrating system the whole way. Do not hesitate to hire Shannon. – Former Criminal Defense Client

I just went through the most challenging moment of my life and I am glad I had Shannon on my side. At times when I felt the odds were stacking against me, Shannon was able to show me the light at the end of the tunnel. She had a way of bringing sense to my world. Even when the case become challenging, she never stopped fighting for me. I can honestly say that she is now a friend and a mentor. If you are looking for someone who will be honest and fight tooth and nail, she is the attorney for you.– Former Client
