Allyson M. Quay

A lifelong Rhode Island resident and a trial attorney, I have focused my practice in the Rhode Island Court system. I have extensive experience
as a criminal defense attorney and have represented hundreds of clients charged with DUI and other misdemeanors and felonies. As a litigator,
I handle municipal matters, contract disputes and land use/zoning
matters. I have previously served as an assistant to the solicitor for the Town
of Little Compton, representing the Town at Town Council and various Town boards and commissions, including the Zoning Board.

I am willing to take every case to trial when necessary, which allows
me to negotiate the best outcome for you. I believe in treating
people with respect and dignity at all times. I understand that being arrested or being sued can cause great fear, anxiety and stress. I will take the time to explain the process to you and will always return your calls.
