Not guilty at trial
Went to trial for me. Had my back the whole way. Came back not guilty. Thank you !
Treated me and my family with dignity and respect
I had Steve Allen as my attorney and I am so thankful. Attorney Allen Took the time to listen to my side of the case he also immediately answered text messages and telephone calls from not only myself but my mom as well, He truly made a horrible situation, so less stressful by putting me at ease and making me feel like he truly did care about the outcome of the case not only for the present situation but for my future combined, I can’t thank him enough
Facing a lot
My son was facing over 35 years exposure on various cases. He has a drug addiction. They wanted nearly 20 years for these accusing crimes. Allen was able to reduce to a few years And although he didn't get out into rehab we knew that was unlikely. Thank you !!
Facing a long term..
Was facing almost 18 years on dope charges. Allen was able to reduce it to 6 months county. Saved my life.
Charged with felony gun charges. Reduced to misdemenor and muy Dui was restated with same terms. I kept my gun rights, no jail. All good !
facing three strikes
I dont use a computer often. hell ive been in prison most my life - I have two prior strike offences and i was facing a life behind bars for assault. we went to trail, becaue there was no other options. Allen beat the case and i walked home free . Unbelievable! I asked if there was anything I could do and he simply asked me to take care of myself and family and not to come back. I thought this was the lest I could do and write a positive review. I love this man and he takes it personally to do his best and he made no promises. but he said he would do whatgever he could to get me out of this. and he did. this was over one year ago but I owe him and bob for his support my life
They are very good attorneys
Knocked it out of park
Really happy. Small case,i tried to handle myself but the Da laughed. I hired Steve to handle and he made no guarantees but he really delivered. Brought the charges down to exactly what I needed. Thanks
I had a great experience.. Not always easy to reach but always calls back same day.. He kept me updated, and told me they wouldnt stop fighting until there was nothing left to do. In the end, I took a lesser charge and was happy with the result. Thanks you!
The best in riverside. Without a doubt
Look. I can't stand attorneys. I've been swindled by a few. These guys.. Fair, reasonable Prices payment plans. I felt Allen actually cared. Took calls in weekend's evenings. Just to assure he was helping. Hopefully I'll never need him again but I'd go back.
Drug charges were serious.. facing a long long time in a prison cell. I didn’t know certain charges could be non state and Allen and his partner convinced da to change things and I ended up with a drug program and probation. I will always remember them.
High quality, affordable representation
I was referred buy a fiend for a assault case. Was facing a felony with strike but Allen was able to get quietly swiftly settled for a misdemeanor.
I had four violation of probations for not doing classes or paying fines. I expected jail but Steve was able to make all cases just go away. No classes, no jail, probation just gone. Amaaaaahzing
Allen did a great job.. took a long time, but the offer from early on was 4 years. state prison. He turned in to a house arrest deal and saved my family. Thanks!
Job well done.
Facing a felony. Was with pd for awhile 6 months nothing got done but the pd was nice. Anyways I hired Steve, within a month he got me miserable and no jail.
NoOne can tell me anything about this man. Steve worked days and nights on my case. Never ever did he give me reason to doubt him. Did an amazing job representing Me and I have not one regret about hiring him. He knows his stuff and will fight to the death for his clients. Highly Recommended!!
Gets it done!
Charged with Marijuana cultivation (back when it was a felony). The law reduced it to a misdemeanor but the DA in Riverside still Wanted Jail time. Allen was able to convince them based on everything we provided that they were wrong. Unfortunately the government still didnt drop the charges, but he was able to get it reduced to a noise ticket or some shit with no fine, no probation - It took over a year but Im more than satisfied and happy that it did not cost me my entire retirement account! Thanks
** All-Star **
Both Bob and Stephen are well versed in marijuana law - they took my case which was originally charged very seriously, and got it reduced to a noise violation. I also have used their firm for my medical marijuana business needs and they get it done. It took awhile to wrap everything up, but they promised they would not stop until we were all completely satisfied with the end . Well that day came, and I am satisfied.!
turned a bad situation into a good turn for my life..
I was charged with multiple drug ccounts. Mr. Allen successfully defended my case, got me into a program and my life is now going to the right direction. His fee was reasonable, they were easy to reach by phone, or text. And Im completely happy. Thank you!
Saved me money and time.
Minor case misdemeanor. Reasonable fees, easy to reach. Job well done.
NOT guilty at trial!!
Saved my life.. I refused to accept a deal which many thought was favorable. We went to trial, and the jury believed us. It felt amazing to win this case. Mr. Allen convinced the jury and was personal, and did a wonderful job.
I was charged with a few different felonies. Steve took the case and convinced judge to reduce. The da wouldn't go for it, but they tried everything and no jail, no felonie!!
Handled my case professionally
handled my case with ease, and professionalism. I am happy.
Put me at ease.. calmed my nerves, and did the job right!
Allen and Bob did a fine job helping me with my case.I was in an unfortunate place in my life, but their office really helped. they were patient, accepted payments, and got me a good result
Just a fair experience all the way around.. never thought I would need a criminal lawyer but I reached out after a client of mine referred us.. My son was in a difficult place with drug abuse and led to other crimes. Mr. Allen and his partner Bob really strived to guide us through the process. In the end, charges were reduced, rehab was in place, and our family is back on track. There are a lot of choices out there, but I would come back. Hopefully we won't have to though!
Felony dropped to misdemeanor
Allen and Bob did a good team effort. I was charged with felony assault. Settled for disturbing piece! Really happy. And the fee was not to much
Personal, professional, caring approach
I was referred to Mr Allen and Mckernan from a friend. They were both easy to talk to.. They know everyone in riverside and got me the best possible deal. Very satisfied with them. Cheers
DUI - dismissed
I came here because I knew I needed someone to look at specific issues. Mr. Allen made no promises as to the end result. but he DELIVERED. case dismissed. Ran a motion based on police officer statement and judge granted his motion to dismiss
Professional at a good price
Man.. I was referred here from friends. Allen gave me a fair price half the cost of bigger firms and worked my case for a year and got my felonies with strike down to misdemeanor. So happy!
One of the best. He cares..
He did his best, got a good result and legitimately does everything he can.
steven allen is the riverside go to go guy!
allen knows everyone.. He knows judges, DA attorneys, and works out amazing deals. I didnt actually expect it to be as good as it was. I was referred to him from a friend and he gave me a good price, and did a good job in a short amount of time. Hey, Im out of jail to write this review so lifes all good.
Top notch attorney
They know what they are doing. Are confident but real. Straight shooter and got a good result at a budget price. Amen!
I hired mr. Allen and his firm. I was charged with domestic abuse, felonies and a strike. He pushed and pushed and got it down to misdemeanor no time or classes. I am still in marines when I would have been discharged.
hands on personal approach
They handled my case appropriately.. above and beyond. always available for calls, texts, questions. The result was good, and the price was fair.
So far so good. Steve Allen has been available and attentive to questions I have and keeps me up to date with my case. Extremely flexible with payments which is a plus if you hit financial bumps. The thing I love the most is the consistent communication none of which I had with any other lawyer, if you call he'll answer or will get back with you as soon as possible. Will keep review up to date as case progresses Written: 03/24/16
Former DA has connections..
He knows everyone in Riverside.. I got a case dismissed for a misdemeanor before trial. His fees are fair, he allows payments, and always makes himself available for questions.
excellent service, great payment rates! All-star attorney
I was charged with many felonies.. the first attorney I hired got me a prison offer. My mom called Mr. Allen and he came in, smooth talked, got me a probation deal with a misdemeanor after 18 months.. I could not be happier. Thanks
