"I have known John Allen professionally since 2016. At that time, John Allen was serving the legal team of a well-respected national wholesale company. I was impressed with his wealth of knowledge of business and international trade. I found his contracts to be thorough but straightforward and most notably, fair. I was pleased to have the opportunity to work directly with John Allen when he began working privately. His counsel has been integral to the growth of my business. We have retained John Allen's services since the summer of 2020. His guidance has streamlined our onboarding process with new customers and his contracts have significantly improved our business. I highly recommend John Allen to those requiring experienced legal guidance with competence and integrity."

""I trust John Allen Waldrop and Derek Colvin to provide legal guidance and manage litigation as Outside General Counsel. They both have immense legal talent, but they approach problems differently. John Allen’s knowledge and experience are well complemented by Derek’s quick-thinking and attentiveness to finding solutions. Together, they provide me with prompt, well-reasoned, and reliable legal guidance so that I can manage risk and grow my next 500M business." John T. Hewitt"
