    - Neal Morrison

He has buttressed our company, staff, and efforts with creative, sound, and successful advice in business, law, tax, and corporate governance. Martin is one of the pillars that support our company. We could not be where we are without his help and valuable assistance. "
    - Raul Herrero
    Ralco International, Inc.
    "Martin Allen has done a phenomenal job for my company in many ways. His in-depth knowledge of tax and corporate law and his creative business sense are valued at every level of the organization. He is able to create and implement incredibly complex structures and strategies while maintaining focus on our corporate goals. There are a couple of things I truly appreciate when I work with Martin (things that are not often present in other outside counsel). First, Martin partners very well with our project teams, which include deal counsel we use from other firms. For instance, Martin has been our tax counsel on several transactions that were handled by another law firm. Difficult to have happen smoothly, and yet the fact that more than one firm is involved is almost invisible due, in large part, to Martin's team-oriented attitude. Something else I value is Martin's ability to make these complex matters understandable; his elegant use of language permits the layman to understand and appreciate the structure of the deal while still providing a useful record/summary for the tax planner and attorney. "
    "Martin Allen is a brilliant practitioner. He provides practical solutions and clearly written explanations of the most complex tax matters. He is the best."
