Introducing Kris "Tanto" Paronto
Political advertisement paid for by the Brooke Allen Campaign, in compliance with the voluntary limits of the Judicial Campaign Fairness Act.
Judge Allen has presided over hundreds of bench and jury trials in the areas of estates, guardianship, mental health and litigation related to estates and guardianship.
As a fiscally responsible judge, Judge Allen has returned more money to taxpayers this year than any other probate court in Texas. Under her leadership, our court has streamlined its budget, has appointed the first full-time public probate administrator, and has decreased staffing and overhead costs.
Judge Allen has also been active in Tarrant County speaking on guardianship, probate, and mental health law to senior-citizen groups, to parents with special-needs children, and to attorney associations.
She is dedicated to the legal profession and her commitment has been recognized by her peers at both the State and local level. She is a Fellow in the Texas Bar Foundation, a honor bestowed on only 1/3 of Texas attorneys each year. As an attorney, Brooke Allen was voted by her colleagues as a "Top Attorney" in Fort Worth Magazine and a "Rising Star" by Texas Lawyer. She was "Attorney of the Year" presented by the Fort Worth Paralegal Association.
