“Having the need to reach out to a criminal lawyer is not something we ever plan on. Life happens, unfortunately some times things go badly, mistakes are made. Our family went through some difficult times. Richard Allman and his assistant were a God Send. Not only on a professional level but on a personal one as well. Mr. Allman fought really hard for the best possible outcome. An honest realistic outcome. He works very hard for you without sugar coating the situation. We were very happy with and grateful for the services provided by Mr. Allman and his assistant.”

“I hired Richard Allman to represent me as my lawyer for a situation I was Involved in.
Richard was very professional and knowledgeable.
Richard went out of his way to help me. Richard helped me understand all aspects of the situation.
Richard took control of the situation right from the start.
I was completely satisfied with the outcome, and the result was better than expected.
As the situation progressed Richard communicated often to inform me of changes in the case.
I would not only hire Richard again I would recommend his services to anyone in need.
I would like to add that his assistant Karen was very professional she also helped and answered all the questions, concerns I had.”

“In 2019 I was accused of a serious crime I did not commit. I was at risk of going to jail and being taken away from my family. Mr. Allman and his staff believed in my innocence and took every step to ensure I had the best chance at being acquitted. Mr. Allman even attended at the location of the allegations and took photos that were used in Court to help the Judge understand my testimony easier. Mr. Allman called all of the witnesses that the Crown did not, to include the police and other experts so that my case was completely before the Court. My case was extremely complicated and Mr. Allman was very thorough in making sure nothing was left unturned. My trial was supposed to be two days but it was closer to10 days, due to circumstances beyond Mr. Allman and my control. Mr. Allman was very fair with his fees, and all of the staff that helped to assist with this case were amazing. I would recommend his services to my friends and family 200%
Thank you Mr. Allman for proving my innocence and keeping with my family!”

“Having had my case handled by Richard and his office while I was living in Thunder Bay was going to be a disaster…or so I feared. Never having actually met Richard or Karen, I was instantly at ease when we spoke over the phone. I knew that I had nothing to worry about and I was in good hands!
I am beyond grateful for Richard and his team and ‘thank you’ just doesn’t seem enough.”

Couldn’t Have Asked for More
"Allman and his staff were true professionals at all times throughout the carriage of my file. I offer the highest possible recommendation for Mr. Allman to represent anyone that requires a criminal defense lawyer. This was my first time requiring legal assistance and throughout this time of immense stress Mr. Allman explained all options available to me with a feeling that things were under control and he was on top of my case. Mr. Allman made himself available for my bail hearing and answered all questions and inquires in a timely manner throughout. He presented as a man of integrity going the distance for me when presenting my defense, and was amazing in “thinking on his feet” when in court. I could not have asked for more or a better outcome thanks to Mr. Allman and his staff. I am relieved to put closure to this chapter of my life and am truly grateful for Mr. Allman’s utmost dedication to my case. If anyone ever needs criminal defense legal help, Mr. Allman’s firm will certainly be the only recommendation I make."

D.B – Aug 2017
"Earlier this year I had a situation where I had called the Police to help me deal with a situation within my home, but after a misunderstanding the Police unfortunately mistook me as the criminal and had pressed a fairly serious charge against me. I was concerned that the court's would convict me of a criminal offence and that I would end up with a criminal record that would follow me around for the rest of my life. After hearing only good things about Richard Allman, I hired him to represent me in Court. I was surprised how fast he took charge and showed initiative in getting my charges dropped. He dealt with the matter quickly and efficiently, and proved himself to be very knowledgeable in the steps taken to preserve the integrity of the process. I am now able to go on with my life without fear of a criminal record following me."
