Attorney Profile

Guided by the principle that every person and corporation has a moral and legal duty to care for the safety of others, for over 23 years, Allegra Carpenter has successfully battled those responsible to hold them accountable.  Her desire always is to bring justice to those who are catastrophically harmed by the actions of others.   

Allegra’s creative approach to selecting, strategizing, and advocating for those harmed or killed in truck crashes, from medical negligence, in nursing homes, and other personal injuries, has earned her respect among clients, peers, and judges.  She is a regularly invited instructor of trial skills, legal strategy, and legal graphics visualization.  She welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded advocates for justice.

Allegra is AV-Preeminent peer-review rated* through Martindale-Hubbell.
