Mr. Charles Allen is an amazing attorney, he worked along side with Ms. Leslee, Jennifer as well as Mr. Clifton Black to ensure that I had the appropriate amount of counsel and support while serving as my defense attorney. Mr. Charles was a very distinguished lawyer who devoted countless amount of time and energy to ensure that I had a fair fight while going through the process of court. Not only was he a brilliant man and an expert in his craft, but he was also a passionate, considerate, and a righteous man and lawyer in which I come to have the fullest respect for during our previous encounter. I am grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism that you have shown towards me. You, your staff, and your team are truly the best group of individuals in the state of Colorado and I am honored to have the opportunity to work with the Law Offices of Clifton Black. May the Law Offices of Clifton Black continue to prosper in the years to come and may GOD continue to bless you all in the work that you do. Thank you so much for all the help, support, and counsel Mr. Charles Allen and Leslee Jennifer!

I have never had to hire a lawyer before so the entire process was daunting and overwhelming. Especially when you have never had to deal with the court system before. Right off the bat from my initial consultation Charlie and Leslee both spoke with very kind and understanding natures. Charlie answered all of my questions right off the bat and there were a lot of them! There wasn't a time that I ever had difficulties reaching Charlie and if I couldn't get him when I first reached out he always responded within the hour. He was great about communicating both via phone and email to make sure all of my questions got answered. At the time of my hearings, he was great about walking me through the steps so I made sure I knew what to expect and what the next steps looked like. Having to go through all of this during Covid was especially stressful as there were a lot of unknowns into the mix on top of having to deal with a hearing. Charlie went above and beyond to put some of this burden on him. He even called the DMV to get answers, which is no easy task. All in all although I hope to never have to hire counsel in this type of situation again, if I had too, I know that I would reach out to Charlie to help me. He was more than fair, understanding, and above all compassionate and sensitive to my feelings and the nature of my case. Thank you for making a very hard part in my life a bit easier.
