Our story

A full-service law firm since 1982

When the partners came up with the idea of creating Allen Stahl + Kilbourne, they wanted to create a law firm that is based on establishing personal relationships with clients.  This basic philosophy is what our attorneys strive to achieve with every client we represent.  We want our clients to feel that we understand them and we want to earn their trust.  

The vision of the Firm was to create a team atmosphere which allows us to use our collective backgrounds and experiences to better represent our clients.  Our attorneys regularly collaborate with one another to craft strategies and approaches tailored specifically for each client.  We are not simply a group of individual attorneys practicing in one office.  We are a team.  When you hire Allen Stahl + Kilbourne you hire a team of attorneys whose number one goal is to establish a lasting attorney client relationship.

  • I am a real estate agent, and by chance we worked with James Kilbourne on a very complex deal. He was great to work with, returns phone calls quickly, and is very knowledgeable. I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer.
