    Our son Harvey was a mentally challenged 51 year old. He CHOKED to death on a paratransit bus, which transports only people with disabilities. Our son died because First Transit did not train their bus drivers in first aid including CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. The driver did not enforce the company’s own rules.

    Charles Harvey Allen is not the kind of person you imagine when you hear the word “Lawyer”. He is kind, caring, thoughtful and dedicated. He is brilliant at what he does and his knowledge of medicine made him the perfect attorney for our wrongful death case.

    The time work and effort he put into preparing us, the Plaintiff’s, gave us the confidence we needed to speak to the jury. He advised us to tell the truth and Harvey’s story.

    Our trial lasted 10 days. The jury came back with a verdict of 100% negligence on the part of First Transit. We were awarded $15 million dollars and the verdict was later upheld on appeal.

    No amount of money will bring our son back. With the help of Allen and Scofield Injury Lawyers and our Las Vegas attorneys we plan to start a foundation to educate law makers about “HARVEY’S LAW”.

    “HARVEY’S LAW” will mandate that all paratransit companies train their bus drivers in basic first aid including CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver. We want to get “Harvey’s Law” passed in Nevada first and then take it nationwide.

    Charles and Graham have over 30 years of experience in representing Plaintiff’s like us ordinary people not big corporations.

    We recommend Allen and Scofield Injury Lawyers 100%.

    Charles Allen and Graham Scofield are truly some of the best in the business. Charles Allen is absolutely a lion of the Georgia Bar and his respect and many accolades are well-deserved. I have had the pleasure of watching Charles in preparation for trial and was blown away by his attention to detail, understanding of a potential jury and their thought processes, and knowledge of a case that was not even his (we had brought him on as a consultant). His empathy for our client and even-handed evaluation of the pros and cons of their case was incredible to witness. Watching him work was a masterclass I was privileged to attend. If you are going to trial on your personal injury case, you definitely want Charles Allen on your side.

    I worked alongside Graham Scofield for many years and was always impressed by his grasp of the law in many different areas and his ability to thoroughly and clearly explain its nuances to all of his clients. His care for each individual’s story and situation is serious; not an act. He was always on top of each client’s situation and very responsive to all of their needs, questions, and concerns. Graham, too, is a phenomenal, no-nonsense advocate in negotiation, mediation, or trial — he will prepare you for every stage of your case so you know what to expect and update you frequently so there are no surprises.

    Both Charles and Graham adhere to the very highest ethical standards and will make sure your story is heard by those who need to hear it and that you feel taken care of and understood each step of the way.

    I have had the unique experience of working with Charles and Graham on a variety of cases over the past several years. If someone in my family needed an injury attorney in Georgia, I would send that family member to Allen & Scofield. They are incredibly personable and the results speak for themselves.
