Allred is a prolific attorney and partner of a major law firm in California, and the far majority of her clients are not exposed to media attention. I have the impression that earns significantly more than an average attorney. I've seen some interviews with her, and I recall her saying something to the effect that she will accept some clients pro bono initially with contract clauses to include percentages of future income related to interviews, books, other media, settlements, etc (sort of like an agent). Her high profile clients tend to be people who were unexpecedly or suddenly tossed into the spotlight due to associations with or witness to scandals (two Tiger Woods' mistresses, one of Herman Cain's mistresses, Scott Peterson's mistress, a porno actress who texted with Anthony Weiner, Britney Spears' bodyguard, Nicole Brown's relatives, many harassment accusers of celebrities, etc.). There seems to be a pattern where typically a press conference is held for Allred to announce her representation of a client and tell the client's side of the story. Average people caught in these situations do not have big shot attorneys on retainer, and Allred seems sympathetic to them and publicity is good for future business. Allred's non-famous cases typically involve harassment or discrimination lawsuits.
