Kristin M. Allen


I am a lifelong resident of Western New York. My father was the first in his family to attend college and was a computer consultant at a time when owning computers, even in the business world, was rare. My mother was a cardiac nurse for 45 years, working at several local hospitals in the Western New York area. I remember the pride they took in working hard to provide for their family and am grateful that they instilled that same pride in me.

I graduated from SUNY Buffalo with a degree in Legal Studies in 1997 then went on to attend Albany Law School of Union University, graduating in 2000. Since that time I have been practicing Workers’ Compensation law. I learned the Workers’ Compensation system by representing carriers for the first few years of my career but something was missing for me personally. I left that employer and realized I had found my passion when I began representing injured workers. I have dedicated the past 12 years to fighting on behalf of Western New York’s injured workers and have managed a law office in Batavia, NY for almost a decade.

I am very excited to be a part of Dolce Panepinto team. I love working alongside others who are just as passionate as I am about helping injured workers and their families. I know the Workers’ Compensation system is complicated and can be intimidating, especially when you are looking at it from the inside. That is why I am dedicated to pursuing every possible legal avenue to help you get the best outcome. If you need assistance with a Workers’ Compensation claim, or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
