NAPLES — Todd Allen, the Naples attorney who gained national attention when he foreclosed on a branch of Bank of America during the real estate crisis, has formed a new firm with law partner Joe Lindsay.

Lindsay & Allen in Naples will focus on estate planning, probate, corporate, real estate, litigation and community association law. “We formed Lindsay & Allen to provide clients access to the expertise of that of a larger law firm without sacrificing the individual attention and responsiveness of a smaller practice,” says Allen, in a statement.

Allen, a graduate of Ave Maria School of Law, gained fame when he foreclosed on a branch of Bank of America during the height of the foreclosure crisis in 2011. The bank had failed to clear a title on a Naples home in a paperwork snafu that created hassles for the new owners. When attempts to get the problem resolved failed, Allen resorted to foreclosing on a branch of the bank.

As a result of the unusual tactic, Allen appeared on national television programs and in newspapers across the country, including an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The effort gained notoriety for Allen and a boost in new clients. You can read a story about Allen and click on a link to the show here.
