Kyle L. Allen joined Hunter Estate and Elder Law as an associate attorney in August of 2014. He focuses on delivering a client-centered approach to estate planning, asset protection, and elder law for those seeking effective and customized legal counseling that prepares families for life’s inevitable twists and turns. Kyle was born and raised in the Indianapolis area and comes from a very hard-working, blue-collar family which he remains extremely close with to this day. The premium Kyle places on family values and compassion for others are what drove him to this area of practice, specifically with Hunter Estate and Elder Law.
Kyle attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, and graduated in 2004. While there, he was an active leader on campus serving as the president of his fraternity, Delta Tau Delta, and was appointed to serve on DePauw's inaugural Coalition for Building a Responsible Community. After DePauw, Kyle attended Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan, and received his J.D. in 2008. He was a dean's list student and actively participated in the moot court and alternative dispute resolution boards. Kyle was lead counsel on the school's national negotiation team, and led his team to the national finals in the American Bar Association's National Negotiation Competition held in Los Angeles, California.
Kyle began practicing law in 2009, and began his career in the courtroom, starting as a Marion County Public Defender. From there he moved on to a general practice firm, and that is where he was initially exposed to estate planning, which he greatly enjoyed. After leaving the firm, Kyle focused his practice solely on all aspects related to criminal defense until 2014, when he realized it was time to shift gears and move away from the courtroom. Based upon his previous experiences practicing in the estate planning field and the impact of the compassionate elder law counseling his family once received when his family faced a crisis, it was his natural choice for a career move, and that is why he compassionately serves families at Hunter Estate and Elder Law today.
Kyle is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association's Elder Law, Real Property, Trust and Probate Sections and an active participant in the Lawyers With Purpose organization. He and his wife, Michelle, live in the Indianapolis, Irvington neighborhood. They enjoy spending time at the cabin in Brown County and at her family's farm in Knightstown. In his free time, Kyle enjoys basketball, cycling, hiking, camping, trying to be a "handyman", and everything related to the Indianapolis 500.
