I am a trial attorney. It is the reason I became a lawyer. I believe in the process of dispute resolution through the judicial system and cherish the role of lawyers to advocate for their clients. I also recognize that for the parties involved, a lawsuit is likely the top priority in their life at that moment. I will not only represent your interests in court, but I will also guide you with steady counsel through an unfamiliar and emotional process. Together, we will work for the best possible outcome. My years of courtroom experience are also effective in other areas of conflict resolution. I will defend you in front of a licensing board, professional disciplinary action, mediation, or any other conflict. I will advocate boldly and wisely for your interests. Attorney Justin Allen.

My Approach

My approach is simple: Be Prompt; Be Professional; Be Prepared. These are lessons I first learned from a veteran judge giving advice to young lawyers appearing in his courtroom. My experience since then has taught me it is wise to apply these principles to everything I do as an attorney. First, I appreciate that your time is valuable, and your matters are important. It is my promise to be on time and efficient. Second, litigation is a formal process. I recognize the need to be respectful and professional to all involved. As your lawyer, I am not only a representative of your interests but a reflection of you as well. Finally, effective advocacy begins long before you get to the courtroom. I will thoroughly learn your case, study the law, and develop a winning strategy from the start. Perhaps it is best summed up in the words of an important mentor of mine who often said, “If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.”

You deserve knowledgeable, creative, and cost-effective representation. With my experience and the resources of BrownWinick that is exactly what you will get.

More About Me

Before joining BrownWinick, I spent 18 years as a prosecutor for the Polk County Attorney’s Office. In my time there I handled cases from traffic tickets to homicide and everything in between.  I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 1997 with a B.A. in Psychology and from the University of Iowa College of Law in 2000. I am a member of the Iowa Bar Association and Polk County Bar Association.

While working for Polk County, I was an active member of AFSCME Local 1868 and served on the Executive Board and Contract Negotiating Team.
