Report: Kenneth J. Allen tops attorney list
Valparaiso attorney Kenneth J. Allen won the largest jury judgment in Indiana during 2008, according to the 2008 Indiana Jury Verdict Reporter.
The publication reported that Allen topped the list of Indiana attorneys because of the $48 million judgment a Lake County jury awarded to a Porter County steelworker that Allen represented. The steelworker fell from a ladder and suffered spinal injuries that left him a paraplegic.
Allen also tops the list of attorneys with almost $135 million in judgments since 2000. He won million-dollar verdicts in every year since 2003.
Allen said rules placed upon attorneys prevent him from advertising his successes. But he said it is valuable for consumers to know how often their attorney wins jury trials and, when they win, how much do they win. -- By Times Staff
