It always makes our day when we hear from clients we’ve helped!

“Any parent wanting to help their child navigate the tricky and confusing path of transfer from one FBS school to another simply should not do so without the guidance of Rick Allen and Informed Athlete.  

 I am such a parent and happen to be a lawyer of 34-plus years.  A long legal career did not prepare me for the rules, exceptions, and exceptions to exceptions found within the NCAA transfer rules.  

Fortunately, I found Rick.  Within one day I had concrete answers that led directly to my son’s successful transfer without loss of any eligibility.  I could not have done it without Rick’s guidance.  

The old phrase “a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client,” rang very true when I found out how much I did not know.  Rick knows, he is accessible, affordable and, most importantly, he cared about my son’s future.  

I would highly recommend that any parent trying to help their child call Rick first.  You will not need to call anyone else.”
