Many employers, apartment leases, and license applications ask if you have been convicted of a crime. When you answer yes, your application may be automatically rejected. Thankfully, there are laws in Louisiana that permit expungement of certain criminal records. Marcy Allen can help.
Marcy is a Union Parish native who has spent most of her life in north Louisiana. In fact, she attended and graduated from Northeast Louisiana University (now ULM) in Monroe, beginning as a pre-pharmacy student, but ultimately graduating as a cum laude general studies major. Thereafter, she attended Mississippi College School of Law as a full scholarship recipient. While there, she received many awards and honors and graduated magna cum laude.
Marcy began her legal career in Frisco, Texas at a small family law firm, but her family's ties to Louisiana drew her quickly back home. After one year in Texas, she moved home and began a nearly decade tenure at Theus, Grisham, Davis & Leigh, LLP, where she was a member of the litigation section. After that, Marcy worked for a prominent, local criminal defense attorney for a year and a half, where she continued practicing insurance defense, but began focusing on criminal defense.
In December of 2013, Marcy finally decided to open her own practice in Monroe.
Currently, Marcy focuses her practice on criminal defense, personal injury work, and civil litigation.
Marcy is also the proud mother of two wonderful daughters.
