Doesn’t Sugarcoat Things

David Franks impressed me by the fact that he took the time to listen to my wife’s and my concerns/questions, plus he didn’t sugarcoat the fact that the charges were serious. But I told the truth and David got all the paperwork to back my facts. He told us what we faced. He told us it would take some time. He dug for the truth. He never gave up, and most of all he believed me.

I found David to be thorough and leave no stone unturned, followed all avenues and diligent. Even when he was sick he came to court. A very intelligent man who knows his law.

What I valued the most is two things. Integrity—this word has in it the word grit and to me someone who has grit is someone who digs in, doesn’t give up, and gives all they have. Honesty—any man, business, company to succeed must be honest in all their dealings.

His staff always answered my questions, always polite. They never made me or my wife feel rushed.

I would recommend David Franks to my family and friends if they were ever arrested for a criminal charge.

The outcome was exceptional — above and beyond our thoughts. Case dismissed with prejudice!
