Remembering Joe Allen

Remembering Joe Allen
Oct 29, 2018

We are sad to announce the passing of our good friend and colleague, Joe Allen, on October 23, 2018. Joe had been a part of the Warshauer Law Group family for many years — first as a client, and later as part of our team of special investigators. Joe worked for over 30 years for Norfolk Southern Railway Company, and was the Chairman of United Transportation Union, Local 1301 Trainmen. He was also a U.S. Marine Veteran, having served in Vietnam. We are grateful to Joe for his service to the country, his co-workers and to injured railroaders throughout Tennessee. Joe was bigger than life, with a huge heart. One of his greatest joys was being “Santa” at Christmastime. He is seen above with Michael and Lyle’s youngest daughter at our firm Christmas party in 2013. He will be missed.

Joe’s family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to: ASPCA, 424 E. 92nd St, New York, NY 10128-6804 or Online condolences for Mr. Allen may be made at
