Career Days with Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen

Author: Attorney Tammy Stafford Ruble

Allen, Allen, Allen & Allen: Serving Southside Virginians for 100 Years

The year 2010 marks the one hundredth anniversary of the personal injury law firm of Allen & Allen. In 1910, George E.

Why do I need an attorney to represent me in my personal injury case?

As soon as the accident is reported to the company, they begin an investigation and begin preparing to defend the company against your claim. Insurance company employees are knowledgeable about claims and are trained to make your claim cost the insurance company as little as possible.
