My name is Attorney Richard G. Allen and I am a bankruptcy lawyer with offices in Johnstown and Hollidaysburg, PA.  I am dedicated to helping people in our area obtain the fresh start they deserve.

I received my law degree from American University Washington College of Law.  After law school I lived in Texas and practiced workers compensation and personal injury law.

After moving to Johnstown, I practiced consumer bankruptcy law with a firm out of Pittsburgh.  Since then, I have established my own consumer bankruptcy practice.

I am a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (“NCBA”) and the American Bankruptcy Institute (“ABI”).

I am also a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the American Bar Association, The State Bar of Texas (inactive) and The Cambria County Bar Association.
