About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I have a general law practice. This means that I practice in many different areas of law. I am diversified and experienced on both sides of the court room. I have worked for the District Attorney's office and know how they think and why they push hard on some cases and not so hard on others. I know how to exploit this to your best advantage, and provide the information necessary to resolve your case with the best outcome for you. I have worked for insurance defense firms and know what claims adjusters look for and at when it comes to your claims and injuries. I know how to present the cases in ways that will maximize your recovery. There is an old saying in family law: You marry your best friend and divorce your worst enemy. While we try to resolve divorces as amicably as possible, sometimes that's just not possible. When a divorce gets ugly and becomes a fight instead of a discussion, you want an aggressive, knowledgeable attorney representing you. I'm the most aggressive attorney in California, because I'm not from California. I'm from Brooklyn NY. I am Italian and I was a Navy fighter pilot.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love that I get to help people. When clients first come to me, they are usually stressed out, upset and/or scared. When their case is over, they are thanking me and telling me that I saved their life. There is no better feeling than that.

    Mr. Allen represented me for my family law matter that dealt with a variety of issues. His vast, enormous knowledge--and expertise--in this specialty of law is very hard to find (in an attorney). I had to go through a number of attorneys before I found one who understood the needs of the case; both on a personal and professional level. I highly recommend him for family law matters.

    Keith successfully navigated through a difficult custody battle that included successfully getting court ordered a mental health evaluation. Persistent and direct, he represented me very successfully.

    Working with Keith was a positive experience. He went above and beyond for me and I will be forever grateful. He was always prepared to argue eloquently on my behalf.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
All attorneys are required to complete Mandatory Continuing Legal Education. On average I do between 10 and 20 hours every year.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
One of the most important things to understand about going to court is: "Justice is a process, not a result." That means that when you go to court, you put your fate in the hands of a judge or jury (depending on the type of case), and though you may have an attorney representing you, ultimately the decision rests with someone else. Justice is the PROCESS of presenting the evidence, examining and cross examining the witnesses, and arguing the law. The result may be what you want, what the other side wants or somewhere in between. But in every case, SOMEONE thinks that the result is unfair to some extent. I explain this to all of my clients at the very beginning. It is for this reason that I encourage my clients and the opposing side (no matter what kind of case it is) to negotiate a result they can both live with.
