Riley, you are by far the best lawyer we have here locally.  I admire your tenacity.  While I fight cases, I must confess that no one fights like you, or as well as you.  You set the bar high, and achieve success in the process because you accept nothing less than true justice.  You take on a battle at great expense to yourself because you know in your heart you are doing what is just.  I know you will always have that fire burning inside you.  I have the utmost respect for you, and all that you do in the fight for justice.  Bravo, my friend. Congrats!

Riley:  Thank you so much for letting me a part of the Anderson case.  It was the best legal experience of my life and will likely be the best of my career.  To think of where we came from to where we ended up on the case – wow what an amazing achievement.  Thanks for being a great mentor to me.  You have an amazing legal mind (that ticks 24 hours a day – hopefully it’s less now), your attention to detail is incredible, your passion is awesome, your tenaciousness is relentless and unmatched, and you have balls the size of dump trucks.   

Thanks again for everything!!!!

I have had the privilege to know and work with Riley Allen on several matters over the years. He is without a doubt the most fearless and intelligent litigator I have ever worked with. His legal talent is unsurpassed and his integrity is unwavering. He never backs down from the big companies and firms who go to any lengths to avoid the truth and accountability. Riley and his trusted paralegal Bonnie are a well-oiled machine and provide superb quality legal services and communication to their clients. I am proud to be able to work with this lawyer and to have him as a friend and ally.

Riley, your tenacity and fearlessness, coupled with your refusal to suffer fools, legal knowledge, and sincere search for justice, is the winning formula.

I am so fortunate to have known you all these years, and your work on the case we had together that required multiple trips to Mexico and multiple mediations is a testament that formula works!

Riley! I have in front of me a copy of the Supreme Court’s decision in Anderson.  Congratulations, brother!  What a fantastic result – and, to have all justices concur – amazing.  That never happens.  You have made all our lives a little easier seeking justice for our clients.

Great job, Riley. I started reading it, stayed glued to it, refused to be distracted by Tiffany, and finished it.  WOW!!!  A work of art!!!  I know you must take a great sense of professional satisfaction in the rewards your efforts bring to your clients, and you should!  It’s the pinnacle of the professional mountain.  Most lawyers will never know the feeling.  Those who do are very happy for you, and jealous at the same time. Congratulations on a job well done!!!!

I have had the pleasure of having Riley represent and counsel me on a number of cases. It doesn't get any better. Riley cares more about his clients than any attorney I have met and will stop at nothing to fight for them. He is fearless and driven and not afraid to take on the largest and most powerful individuals and businesses anywhere at any time. He is motivated by a strong moral compass and an acute sense of fairness. He does not tolerate frauds, liars, cheats, and thieves and because of that he is able to expose them time and again. He is the best of the best and has proven that throughout his career. His track record speaks for itself.

Great job, I know how it feels to come back the second time and hammer a**holes. Not much better! You've turned into a hell of a trial lawyer…and I'm proud of you. There is a small group of us who really revel in the success of the others; you may count me in your group and I do count you in mine. Many of these folks are jealous and give faint praise while believing they could do it themselves. The trial lawyer is becoming an extinct species. When your name comes up I smile…
You've got a gift for this and I hope you will continue to pass it on and teach as I know you do. If we don't, the advertisers will dominate, no one will be able to try a case and it will be complete chaos someday.
With personal regards,

To whom it may concern, my name is Troy Darnell Anderson and Riley Allen represented me in a case against Hilton. Riley not only treated me with respect and dignity but he approached Hilton as if he was defending himself. I'm not going to go into all the details but I will say this... he won the case, and not only did he win the case, but the way he did it was unbelievable. He did it honestly, with dignity. He treated my family as if they were his own. I am forever grateful to you Riley, and I don't really care if this gets to anyone else, I just hope that you know that I will take the time out of my day to stand up and represent you the way you have represented me. You defended me like a true warrior. You were not afraid; when I faltered, you picked me up; when I was down you held hands with my wife and prayed, not for the case but for me as a person. I love you, I respect you, and I am grateful for you, Bonnie and the rest of your staff. If ever you need anyone to tell the truth about Riley Allen, ask me. Thank you,

Troy Darnell Anderson


On a more human level, the part of that whole ordeal that sticks with me to this very day was how utterly helpless and alone I felt until talking to you. As you might imagine, I’m not the type of guy who is accustomed to experiencing that type of feeling, but I was genuinely rattled in the face of their despicable actions & the blatant injustice of it all.  I just couldn’t wrap my head around how anyone could consciously act in such an evil manner. I don’t exactly remember how much time we spent on that first call, but I swear it was probably 90 minutes.  I DISTINCTLY remember the incredible sense of relief I had in knowing that not only were you listening to me, but that you actually HEARD me!  You got it!  You understood the situation clearly, and were just as outraged about it as I was!  I clearly remember a point on that call where you began to get angry and started referring to them as ‘scumbags’.  In that moment, I knew you had my back and everything was going to be OK.  I cannot describe the sense of pure relief I had in that moment.

And THAT, my friend, is the true beauty inherent to your life’s work.  How many people just like me experienced similar moments thanks to you?  How in the world can you ever truly thank somebody for that?  I honestly don’t know... I simply leave you with this…you did far more for me than you will ever know, and I will never, ever forget.

Dear Riley Allen,
I just want you to know I will never forget what you did for me. When my little boat was being tossed around in such a terrible storm where I would have certainly perished you provided hope. When things looked hopeless you shared a pathway. You were my lighthouse. I am so thankful to have had such an advocate and I will never forget how you found justice when I thought all was lost. You are an inspiration that good still finds a way in this world. I will forever be grateful to you. Thank you.

I have known Mr. Allen for approximately 20 years. During this time, he has not only represented my mother in a complex medical malpractice case, but also some close friends. Mr. Allen is motivated by doing the right thing for his clients. He always goes the extra mile. His goal has always been to put the client first. I cannot say enough good things about this attorney and his staff. The patience, care and understanding is something that very few attorneys seem to have anymore. Mr. Allen will always be my attorney no matter what. I cannot thank him enough for all his selfless efforts of time and money that he gave to my family when he represented my mother. I will never forget it.

Great continuous experience. The most committed attorney I have ever encountered.

I met Riley Allen in 2007. He became a client of mine as I'm in the technology field and his firm was expanding. I encountered a legal disaster early in 2008 that impacted the well-being of my family. I was at a loss unsure what to do. Riley not only offered his help but represented me even though this type of law is not "typical" in his particular practice. Riley and his staff committed fully to my case and defended my rights in ways I did not deem possible. My case was not a "financial gain" for Riley's firm and yet he represented me due to his code of ethics as someone had truly taken advantage of us. I have never met a more ethical and committed attorney. Being in the technology field, I have clients in all fields including law firms and share many conversations with clients regarding their personal legal experiences in diversified cases. I hear the horror stories of cases that should have been handled differently and would have had different results. I myself have experienced different legal scenarios through the course of my life. It wasn't until Riley represented me that I was able to determine the difference between a "good lawyer" and a "GREAT lawyer." Riley is a great lawyer. He does not quit. He is aggressive which in my opinion is
one of his many qualities. His due diligence is incomparable. He defends those who are taken advantage of and finds them resolution. Not only was he on top of my case, he also won my case when I thought it would never settle. I would recommend Riley Allen to my closest friend and family (I actually have!). I
consider it a privilege to have Riley Allen represent me in any legal matter should I ever require his services in the future. His skills and ethics are exceptional. He is extremely knowledgeable and truly an expert in law. I would gladly recommend Riley Allen to anyone.

Riley Allen Represents True Professionalism

They say in the practice of war that amateurs study tactics and professionals study logistics. That same sentiment can be applied to attorneys – amateurs focus their efforts on superficialities or ostentation, while professionals make it their business to master all the tiny, tedious things that are truly necessary to emerge victorious.
That’s why I am so impressed with Riley Allen. He has represented different companies for me on and off for over 20 years. I’m an attorney myself, so I have a good sense of what qualities to look for in representation. Let me say first that when it came to my cases, he had a masterful presence – in the courtroom, in chambers, in mediation and in depositions he had an unparalleled level of comfort and confidence that made his arguments all the more compelling. When matched with his depth of knowledge and his ability to think quickly on his feet, he was a formidable force indeed.
But it is his preparation where his professionalism is really established. He is relentlessly thorough on even the smallest of details, and that high degree of precision ensured that every facet of my cases was examined, every possibility was considered and every eventuality was contemplated. Throughout the process, he made it clear that he did not believe in guesswork or in chance, and instead invested himself in a tireless effort to eliminate any uncontrolled variables from the proceedings.
I have to be honest and say that when I first started working with him, all of this preparation seemed a bit on the obsessive side. But then I saw what it meant for the future of the companies in terms of actual outcome, and it all became clear. He really does take each case personally, and he put as much energy into my companies' needs as he would have put into his own. It is impressive to say the least, and I am grateful for all his efforts.
It's easy to know why he has been repeatedly recognized as one of the best lawyers in the United States.

Riley Allen provided me with excellent legal advice and service, bringing about an effective outcome that I was very pleased with. His breadth of knowledge across various legal domains allowed him to see the issues from multiple perspectives and to develop a legal strategy that was sound and holistic. He was
compassionate, looking to do 'what is right' and fully dedicated himself to see things through to that end. His confidence and fearless leadership was always
reassuring. I have known Riley for over ten years. His professionalism, coupled with his personal drive and integrity lead him to clearly stand out as a top-notch attorney and advocate for his clients. It is no wonder that Riley is so well known and highly regarded in spite of the fact that people learn about him via word of mouth referrals.
