Charles is an expert trial lawyer. He has authoritative and comprehensive proficiency in the rare specialty of litigation. In this arena of uncertain legal standards and risky jury trials, Charles has the most important attribute of all: judgment.
Charles also has the one true mark of a champion: the ability to make a comeback. Once a trial begins, endurance is paramount – to last despite stress, frustration, fatigue and adversity. Fortitude and resilience are among his best qualities.
Charles possesses the traits Aristotle said define an ideal player: character, competence and good will. He brings these to the theatre of the courtroom.
We associated Charles on one of our cases and worked closely with him over the course of a couple of years. Charles is insightful, thoughtful and exceedingly creative. He has an uncanny ability to boil even very complex facts and law into very simple and elegant themes—that work. They worked for us as we developed the case along those themes and were very effective with the juries to whom we presented them
I would be remiss not to mention how much I learned from him about speaking to juries and allowing them to identify and reinforce your themes through their own mouths. It was enlightening and brilliant.
Lastly, I enjoyed working with Charles so much. He is a fierce advocate, he works incredibly hard, he was a good teacher and collaborator and became a good friend.
My son was born healthy, but after birth, he almost died from a brain injury because of a physician’s failure to diagnose a potential problem, treat it or, inform my wife and me about the risk. This negligence left our son with a lifelong disability.
Filing a malpractice lawsuit to help support my son was a traumatic experience. And taking the case to trial was frightening, but Charles was with us from the get-go. He prepared us and kept us well informed about what the jury was going through and what the defense was doing.
Charles had a personal way of communicating with our family that made us feel we were not alone and helped us make it through a very difficult time. We always knew he was fighting for us. The case settled in 2003 in our favor, and my son has a trust fund that will give him the support he needs for life.
I met Charles Allen when he spoke at a legal seminar about six years ago. Since then we've worked on several cases together. Charles is the most skilled and hardest working lawyer I have ever met, and an even better person. He is very humble and genuinely cares about clients, spends time getting to know them and really tries to do what’s best for them.
Our son Harvey was a mentally challenged 51 year old. He CHOKED to death on a paratransit bus, which transports only people with disabilities. Our son died because First Transit did not train their bus drivers in first aid including CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. The driver did not enforce the company's own rules.
Charles Harvey Allen is not the kind of person you imagine when you hear the word "Lawyer". He is kind, caring, thoughtful and dedicated. He is brilliant at what he does and his knowledge of medicine made him the perfect attorney for our wrongful death case.
Our trial lasted 10 days. The jury came back with a verdict of 100% negligence on the part of First Transit. We were awarded 15 million dollars.
No amount of money will bring our son back. With the help of Charles and our Las Vegas attorneys we plan to start a foundation to educate law makers about "HARVEY'S LAW".
"HARVEY'S LAW" will mandate that all paratransit companies train their bus drivers in basic first aid including CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. We want to get "Harvey's Law" passed in Nevada first and then take it nationwide.
Charles has over 20 years of experience in representing Plaintiff's like us ordinary people not big corporations.
We recommend Charles Harvey Allen law for 100%

Charles is an excellent trial attorney who possesses a unique talent to hone in on the significant issues and turn the Defendant’s strengths against them. Charles is as honest as the day is long and works tirelessly to ensure that his clients receive all that is possible. While no lawyer is perfect, Charles strives to be as good a lawyer as there is on this planet, and he succeeds!
I have had the honor to work with Charles on a significant wrongful death case and have watched him masterfully depose key witnesses in that case. He is a skilled trial lawyer with an uncanny ability to pull the truth out of a witness in a way that fully supports his position in the case. I was very impressed.
I’ve been honored to work with Charles on a number of cases over the years. Charles is head and shoulders above most lawyers in his devotion and passion for truth and justice, and for righting the wrongs his clients have suffered.
I respect his legal prowess, and his seemingly innate ability to simplify complex legal issues for juries. Moreover his humility, patience and social skills make him the ultimate team player.
On top of that, and most of all, I think the world of Charles because he’s just a good human being.
