Judge Allen is great. I tried a murder case there as a prosecutor, and, although things moved a little slowly, everyone in the courtroom felt listened to and treated fairly, including the defendant, who was mentally ill. It was so nice to be in front of a smart, professional and caring jurist.

Best in New York County, a truly good man. Compassionate, decent, nice to lawyers, lets you try your case, understands that defendants are actual people even when they do bad things, which is a truly remarkable. And after many years on the bench, he isn't jaded.

This gentleman exudes courtesy and professional ethics. I have encountered many negative borderline mean judges in the past. But this fine man is fair and gives people hope that there is fairness and integrity in the courts. He is a pleasure.

I recently tried a gun possession case in front of Judge Allen. This man has the patience of a saint and is very bright. I wouldn't mind trying all my cases in front of him.

I had the pleasure to try a murder case in front of Judge Allen. I felt he was very fair, did not favor one side, was extremely civil and handled jury selection in a very unique but effective way.
