Allen focuses his practice on helping individuals and families.  To that end, his practice revolves around protecting individuals’ civil and constitutional rights, helping families through the difficult time of parental separation, assisting the disabled in obtaining their Social Security benefits, and guiding individuals and families through the purchase and sale of their home.  Prior to opening the doors at Thompson Law Offices, Allen spent several years practicing almost exclusively in federal court, engaging in civil rights and constitutional litigation against government entities, from local townships and municipalities, to large cities and the Federal government.  Today, he practices solely in New Jersey with his primary office in Ocean County.


Allen enjoys spending time with his wife and three kids, exploring the region’s historical sites, and writing.  Allen’s legal writings have been published on legal blogs, as well as scholarly publications.  An historical article on the fighting within the town of Gettysburg will be published shortly.
