Cindy Allen ‘80 lives in Abilene, Texas, and is a shareholder in The Whitten Law Firm. She received her Bachelor of Arts in social science from McMurry and graduated with distinction from St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas, in 1984. Her area of practice focuses on family practice law. In her practice, she enjoys supporting families with family law mediation helping them come together to find common ground.

Allen has been active with the State Bar of Texas, serving on committees and as a presenter at many conferences. Her community involvement has spanned her career. She has given back to the Taylor County communities with numerous board positions, including serving as the chair of Taylor County Health Endowment, City of Abilene, Civil Service Commission, and Central Appraisal District of Taylor County, Texas. Currently, she is focusing her time on client needs stepping back from civic involvement. She is grateful to be a part of the McMurry University Board of Trustees during this time of growth.

Allen is a native of San Angelo, Texas, and has made Abilene her home, along with her husband Larry, a graduate of Abilene High School, since 1984.
