About Us

Founded in 1995 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Allen & Newman, PLLC is a defense Firm where the client takes top priority. Due to the evolving legal environment, Founding Member David Allen left a large insurance defense Firm with a vision and desire to start a more forward-thinking and progressive practice with a focus on efficiency and excellence in legal representation. With the early success of the Firm, clients began seeking representation throughout Tennessee as well as outside of the state, which soon facilitated the opening of branch offices across the Southeast.

To meet its growing client needs, the Firm began to add additional staff and attorneys, seeking qualified, experienced counsel whose client-centered goals and work ethic matched those of the Firm. The Firm also started expanding its representation to include all civil litigation. Soon it became clear, based on business volume, that additional offices would be needed to effectively and efficiently handle the ever-growing client base. During this same time, the mix and variety of incoming business continued to increase.

Based on client requests and a successful record of quality legal representation, Allen & Newman, PLLC has continued growing into a large, multi-state defense practice while staying true to its regional roots and client-centered values. After over twenty years of business, Allen & Newman, PLLC now represents clients in all counties throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, allowing its clients to limit their counsel over a wide geographic area.

The Firm produces reference materials on a number of subjects, which are updated yearly and provided free of charge to clients. The Firm maintains a website for client updates and provides free on-site seminars, upon request, to clients. Continuing Education credits are available in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

Allen & Newman, PLLC was invited to become one of the original members of the Claims & Litigation Management Alliance, formerly the Council on Litigation Management and the Council on Ethical Billing, which requires nomination and approval.

Additional clients available upon request.
