Allen received his bachelor’s in political science from the University of California, San Diego, where he was in the Warren College Honors Program. While a student, he worked at a hospital and became EMT certified. During that time, he determined he didn’t want to become a doctor, but he still wanted to help people in their moments of crisis and decided to become a lawyer.

During his undergrad years, Allen interned at the Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, California, assisting in the legal department, and was privy to the different obstacles clients faced after experiencing an accident. At Palomar Medical Center, Allen saw the pain his clients were dealing with and was determined to find a way to help them. He worked with numerous clients in different phases of their lives who were facing a multitude of issues. This knowledge helped shaped the lawyer he would become and buttresses the ethos of Winters & Yonker where clients’ always come first.

After completing his bachelor’s degree in 2010, Allen then moved to Louisiana to attend law school at Louisiana State University. After passing the Louisiana Bar, Allen worked as a law clerk for the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office and a small personal injury law firm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. During that time, he gained in-depth knowledge of the civil court system as he researched numerous cases and help prepare them for court.

Allen then moved to Tampa, Florida, where he passed the Florida Bar. He is currently able to practice law in both Louisiana and Florida. He joined the team at Winters & Yonker in January 2016 as an attorney and has continued to serve in that capacity, learning more about Florida-specific statutes and how he can better advocate for his clients. His primary experience has been with personal injury cases, which suits his desire to help people in need.
