With several years of experience in the public sector, Allison Lantero has the forethought, creativity and focus to pursue a course of action to resolve disputes that meets her clients’ needs. Working in communications taught her to quickly synthesize complex issues and summarize them in a concise, comprehensive manner.
Allison drafts complaints, discovery requests and motions, including summary judgment and dismissals, for virtually all types of commercial litigation. She also helps prepare documents and parties for hearings and assists in witness interviews and depositions.
Allison gained legal research and writing skills as a summer associate at Barnes & Thornburg and as a research assistant for Professor Veronica Root-Martinez at Notre Dame Law School.
Before turning to the law, Allison was a digital communications specialist with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), where she developed, launched, and co-hosted the DOE's award-winning flagship podcast, “Direct Current.” She was also a public affairs specialist with the U.S. Department of Transportation in the Federal Transit Administration and the Office of the Secretary.
When she is not in the office, Allison can be found singing in the church choir or taking a bike ride down the 606.
