Dawn Allred has been a paralegal for over 20 years. She is a native Houstonian who attended the University of Houston and earned her paralegal certification from the Southwestern Paralegal Institute. While studying to become a medical radiology technician, she began working at a law firm part-time and decided that the law was more interesting.

Dawn has worked for a number of firms with a variety of practices but was assigned by one employer to work with the family law practice group and has stuck with family law ever since. She joined the Law Office of Robert S. Hoffman in 2015.

Dawn finds family law consistently interesting, unlike other legal practices which can be fairly dry. She is pleased to help the firm’s clients, who are often struggling to deal with very difficult situations, as well as to give the attorneys the support they need to achieve favorable outcomes.
