Attorneys Scott Allen and Amanda Spence announce the formation of a new Raleigh divorce law and elder law firm, Allen & Spence.  The new office is located in The Atrium at 2501 Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh.

While Allen & Spence is a new firm, the partners have each practiced law in Wake County for over seventeen years.

Scott Allen is a trusted and experienced litigator, mediator, and appellate lawyer.  He works with individuals and families in matters of child custody, child support, equitable distribution, alimony, divorce, domestic violence, and alienation of affection and criminal conversation cases.

Amanda Spence is an experienced and trusted elder law attorney.  She works with families and individuals in matters related to elder law, trusts, nursing home issues, Medicaid, wills and estates.

Scott Allen and Amanda Spence are both graduates of the University of North Carolina School of Law.  Mr. Allen received his undergraduate degree, with honors, from North Carolina State University and Ms. Spence received her degree, with honors, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

According to Mr. Allen: “The population in the here is getting older and recent U.S. Census data indicates that North Carolina couples marry and divorce at slightly higher rates than people in most other states.  It’s well known that divorce, death, and long-term illness of a family member are among the most stressful events in life. We are caring, experienced attorneys and are able to guide our clients through life’s trying times.”

The Raleigh family law firm of Allen & Spence, located at 3737 Glenwood Avenue, Suite 100, in Raleigh, N.C., concentrates on family law and elder law, including divorce, child custody, child support, visitation, alimony, post-separation support, equitable distribution, Medicaid, wills, trusts and estates.
