About Our Gainesville & Ocala Injury Lawyers
At Allen Law Firm Helping You Is Our PriorityIn the front lobby of the Allen Law Firm, P.A.’s Gainesville office sits a short, inconspicuous sign that displays a genuine message that defines our clients.
It reads: “A client is the most important thing in the office… in person, on the telephone, or by mail. A client is not dependent on us, we are dependent on them. A client is not an interruption of our work. They are the purpose of our work. We are not doing a favor by serving the client. The client is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so. A client is not someone to argue with or match wits with. No one ever won an argument with a client. A client is a person who brings us his or her needs. Our job is to handle those needs in a way that is most beneficial to the client…putting their needs before those of our firm.”

The History of the Allen Law Firm, P.A.In February of 2007, husband and wife team Bill and Ginny Allen took a leap of faith and ended their long, well-established careers to open our firm. With sincere and willing hearts, Bill and Ginny knew that it was time to combine their extensive experience and talents to found a law firm that was different. The Allens wanted to build their firm on the foundation of their substantial backgrounds in law and insurance and their driving motivation to help others. Today, Allen Law Firm, P.A. looks much different. The firm has experienced steady growth and gradual expansion as well as dramatic improvements and office spaces and staff size that have multiplied substantially. The personal injury law firm in Gainesville changed locations several times over the years before landing in a beautiful new four thousand square foot office in Tower 24 Plaza off of SW 24th Avenue. The firm also opened in Ocala in 2010. Additionally, Allen Law Firm, P.A. does not confine ourselves to the needs of clients from Alachua County. We have had the privilege of representing clients from surrounding counties such as Lake, Levy, Gilchrist, Dixie, Columbia, Union, Marion, Putnam, Citrus, and Lafayette. We have even taken cases from other states, such as a multimillion-dollar case from Georgia.
Our ExperienceThe Allens always contribute their success to the principles that first motivated them to begin their own practice: experience and client care.? After graduating from the University of Florida with high honors and lettering in football for the Gators, Bill earned his Masters in Business Administration while working a family-owned business. Six years later, he returned to the University of Florida College of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctorate with Honors and was a member of the Trial Team. For the past twenty-three years, Bill has been practicing personal injury law and has handled over five thousand cases. The first five years of his career were spent working for insurance companies, which gives him a distinct advantage in dealing with them now. Prior to Allen Law Firm, P.A., Ginny worked for an insurance company as a claims adjuster and a state-wide claims/litigation manager, managing all types of injury claims including fatalities and large exposure cases. We currently employ five licensed insurance adjusters and the team has a combined 115 years working for insurance companies. It would be difficult to find a firm in the state with more staff members that have worked directly for insurance companies. In addition, our attorneys are members and associated with the following:
- The American Association for Justice
- The American Bar Association
- The Florida Justice Association
- The Gainesville Chamber of Commerce
