Attorney Elliot Allen of Pontiac, MI; piggin out at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree

 
In a monumental lapse of judgment, the Michigan Supreme Court saw fit to foist Elliot Allen on an unsuspecting public by gifting him with a law license in 1987.
 
To assert that attorney Elliot Allen is a practicing glutton in repeatedly piggin out at the Attorney Misfit Apple Tree is not only an understatement but would analogous to arguing that the contestants on “The Biggest Loser” are all suffering from anorexia. In truth, Elliot’s voracious appetite would make Johnny Appleseed blush!

Enablers/Apologists on Michigan Supreme Court reinstate Allen’s law license
 
In a disgusting display or arrogance and total contempt for Allen’s victims, the losers sitting on the Supreme Court had the chutzpah to reinstate Allen’s law license on November 21, 2003. What an unmitigated joke.
 
This outrageous conduct only further proves that Attorney Misfits are held to a lower standard of conduct than we are.
 
As we speak (ca. Jan 2011), this certified loser and serial ethics abuser is presently practicing law at 485 Orchard Lake Road in Pontiac, Michigan.
