Family Law Attorney With Decades Of Military Service

Because military divorce can involve problems that simply never come up in civilian cases, you should think twice about trusting your case to a divorce lawyer who is not familiar with the distinctive characteristics and stresses of military family life.

At the office of Hugh O. Allen Attorney at Law, we have more than 40 years of experience with military divorce. Mr. Allen's interest in helping active-duty and retired military personnel reflects his own 25 years of service from the Vietnam War to Sept. 10, 2001, when his retired reserve status with the U.S. Navy came to an end.
