    I am a real estate attorney in Metrowest and Frank Doran is my "go-to" guy for all criminal referral matters. Frank has saved some of my clients from serious legal consequences. I have also had the pleasure of watching Frank perform in the courtroom, and he is one of the best trial lawyers in the area, hand's down. The judges, clerks and ADA's all know him and his sterling reputation for honesty and skill, and that most definitely contributes to the successes he obtains for his clients. If you are in legal trouble in the Metrowest area, call Frank now.
