Allison focuses on all aspects of construction law, including drafting, negotiating, and revising contracts; assisting clients manage claims, projects, and schedules in real time to keep projects moving; and resolving disputes between her clients. She strives to obtain the best possible result for her clients at the earliest opportunity. Because of this, Allison engages in negotiations and mediations before and in addition to arbitration hearings and litigation proceedings including trials. She goes “all-in” for her clients because she understands that the issues they face—large and small—can make or break for each client. Allison’s interest in and passion for construction law dates back to her days at The Ohio State University where she obtained a bachelor of science degree in architecture.
Allison is also very involved in the community, including participating in the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association’s 3Rs Program, which teaches constitution and government topics to high school students in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, as well as the Partners in Justice Program, supporting the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland. Allison is also involved in several legal and professional associations including the National Association of Women in Construction.
Allison is actively involved with leadership roles in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland’s Bridge Board and the United Way Young Leader Cabinet and other nonprofit organizations. She is the recipient of the 2017 Ohio State Bar Foundation Community Service Award for Attorneys 40 and Under for District 12.
