Jared Allen, Esq.
Why Do I Practice Criminal Defense?
As a former prosecutor, I have the unique experience of having worked on both sides of the criminal justice system. I have enjoyed my career as a defense attorney, and I believe it is my true calling in life. My clients trust me at a time when they are facing what can only be described as one of the most stressful experiences of their entire life. That is true for the client with a traffic ticket, the client charged with a misdemeanor offense, and the client facing serious felony charges. I understand that my clients have family and loved ones that they may want to be included as we make decisions about how to proceed with their defense, and I am more than happy to provide that service to my clients as well.
I am the last line of defense between the State and the people it prosecutes. My job is to make sure that they have done their job from the time law enforcement gets involved until the time when my clients’ cases are resolved. Sometimes, my clients are completely innocent of the charges filed against them. Sometimes, my clients are responsible for some type of criminal behavior; however, I am there to make sure that a fair and just deal is reached in my clients’ cases. By hiring me to work on your criminal defense, you can rest assured that you will receive the best resolution available in your case.
