As a former prosecutor, Allison is a lawyer with a keen understanding of the "real world" of the criminal justice system and how it works. She knows how the state will approach its case and what "value" it has to the state. Unlike other defense attorneys who have never worked as a prosecutor, worked with the victims of crimes, and/or had to deal with law enforcement officers on a daily basis, Allison brings the invaluable experience of knowing the system from both sides. As a result, she is better able to advocate for the rights and the fair disposition of her clients' cases. She knows what the different police agencies do and how they operate, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and has been successful in gaining dismissal of charges in appropriate cases.
