Allison Nelson


Allison has been an attorney with Allen, Nelson & Wilson since 2015.  Her passion is helping those who have been injured on the job or harmed by the negligence of others.  Whether you have been injured at work, injured in a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another person, or discriminated or retaliated against in your job, Allison takes great care to see that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Allison began her legal career at the Missouri Department of Transportation where she began her time focused on analyzing how the laws of Missouri work together for transportation issues.  She later shifted her focus to employment litigation, and tried cases before the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.  Allison has volunteered with the Legal Care program at the Samaritan Center in Jefferson City, serving those who need legal services but cannot afford to pay an attorney.

Allison is married to Ben Nelson, who is a partner at Allen, Nelson & Wilson.  Together they have three children—Abby, Clara and Leo.  Allison is very involved with their church, where she co-leads a small group with Ben and teaches in elementary classrooms.
