Allen has garnered extensive trial experience, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. As a litigator, Allen represented clients in all of Alabama’s Federal, State trial and appellate courts. He was co-lead counsel in a nationwide case Morgan v. Family Dollar which went to the United States Supreme Court resulting in a final resolution of $49,000,000.  Also, Schreiber was co-lead counsel in litigation involving a nationwide case against Dollar General which was also resolved by way of settlement.  Most recently, in 2020 the U.S. District Court in Illinois preliminarily approved resolution of a $25,000,000 result against Sturm Foods in a multi-state class action under The Deceptive Trade Practices Act.

In 1995, Allen began mediating disputes involving wrongful death, personal injury, malpractice, products liability, breach of contract, business disputes, fraud, negligence, health and general commercial liability, aviation, trucking, municipal liability, education law, wage and hour and employment disputes.  

 Allen has been included on the American Arbitration Association’s panel for consumer, employment and commercial arbitrations.  Best Lawyers most recently recognized him as the “Best Arbitrator” in Alabama. 

As a mediator and arbitrator, Allen draws from his broad range of legal experience in doing both plaintiff’s and defense work. Allen has used arbitration and mediation to successfully resolve complex and multi-party disputes.  

Mr. Schreiber is routinely listed in Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America for alternative dispute resolution.  He holds an A V Preeminent Rating by Martindale Hubbell.
