Anne Allen

Anne Allen joined the Dallas office of Baron & Budd in 2021 as an attorney in the Trucking and Catastrophic Injury Group. She devotes her practice to representing individuals who have suffered irreparable harm as the result of the careless acts of individuals and trucking companies.

Ms. Allen graduated from the University of Michigan in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. She received her Juris Doctor from the University of Illinois at Chicago (formerly The John Marshall Law School) in 2011.

Prior to practicing law, Ms. Allen worked in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles. At Twentieth Century Fox, DreamWorks Animation, and other industry powerhouses, she negotiated and drafted contracts and managed compliance concerns. Ms. Allen also clerked at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, assisting prosecutors in all aspects of litigation, including initial case assessment, witness and survivor interviews, and second chairing felony trials.

In 2015, Ms. Allen fell off a zip line and sustained a lumbar spine fracture and neck injury. The incident proved to be a catharsis of introspection and empathy. “Surviving a traumatic injury provides personalized insights into my clients’ concerns and understanding how the injury itself is merely a starting point for a potentially lifelong journey of re-learning basic activities, living with chronic pain, and coping with a new normal.”

Prior to joining Baron & Budd, Ms. Allen represented individuals in personal injury cases. Working on both the plaintiff and defense sides gave her a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of a personal injury case.

When not practicing law, Ms. Allen enjoys practicing yoga, painting and spending time with family. She is also a fan of the Dallas Stars.
