While in law school, Stewart, along with other Christian students, filed a lawsuit against the University of Arizona College of Law for violating the First Amendment's freedom of religion clause. The lawsuit produced a settlement that changed the school's previous religious discriminatory practices and allowed the Christian Legal Society's law school chapter to receive the same benefits and standing that other student organizations enjoyed. The die was cast.
The son of a police officer and the grandson of a coal miner, Stewart learned working class values. He attended public schools from kindergarten through law school. Before law school, Stewart graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelors of Science degree focused on biology and chemistry. He was a research chemist prior to attending law school. During high school and college, Stewart worked as a farm hand, an auto parts salesman, a real property handy man, a newspaper bulk deliverer and an agricultural chemical truck driver.
Stewart practices with four other attorneys in the Dallas, Texas law firm of Allen Stewart, P.C. The firm represents people across the United States.
