I had intended to interview several lawyers but hired Frank Doran on my first interview. He was very confident of a positive outcome for a case against my son concerning possession of a controlled substance.
While this case was pending my son was subsequently arrested for DUI. Frank was again confident of a positive outcome. I will admit to some pessimism which, as it turned out, was unfounded.
All charges were dropped in the first case. My son was found not guilty in the second case.
Frank did a great job.
Last November, we saw ourselves caught up in an unfortunate shoplifting case. We am otherwise law abiding, charitable and hard working people, but caught in stress and turmoil of various life events acted in an inappropriate way. I was very scared to face a judge for the first time in my life and having a black record against my immigration status. Panicky, I contacted Frank to represent my case after I spoke to a few lawyers. He was very confident right from the beginning that he can get my case dismissed at the Clerk's hearing itself. He sympathized with my situation and reassured that "nothing will happen". Finally my case was dismissed with no harm done to my record or immigration within one session. Thank you Frank for taking care of us when we needed you the most.
He was very frank and honest about my case. He made my really bad case have a soft landing. I cannot say enough awesome things about Mr. Doran.
Attorney Doran has represented me for almost one year. Unfortunately, my case has been very complicated.
Attorney Doran came highly recommended to me and I am pleased to provide an excellent review for him. He delivers results in difficult situations. It became quickly evident that I made an outstanding choice in selecting Attorney Doran. Even though my case was complicated, Attorney Doran was ready for anything. He provided me with legal confidence when we entered the courtroom. He was well prepared and ready to skillfully address issues that came up during the court proceeding. He has represented me in the Natick/Framingham District Court, the Westborough District Court, Worcester District Court as well as the Worcester RMV Appeal Board. It was obvious he had solid relationships with the District Attorneys, the Judges, other Attorneys, the Appeal Board and other various staff of the court. It was because of Attorney Doran's relationships that he knew what was going to happen prior to going to court and he would develop strategies that would advance my standing in the case. It seemed as though he was always several steps ahead of the prosecution.
Attorney Doran is extremely easy to work with. It was apparent that when we met in our planning sessions that he took a very personal interest in my case. He is responsive to phone calls, texts, emails and has outstanding follow-up.
I would recommend retaining Attorney Doran to anyone including my family. He went above and beyond to provide me with the best alternatives. I will continue to utilize his services. Nothing feels better than going into Court with the BEST attorney representing you. If you are going to Court, you must have Attorney Frank Doran at your side.

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.

I cannot praise Frank Doran enough. I was falsely accused of a very serious crime, and Frank was recommended to me by another attorney. He met with me and my wife, and we were both immediately impressed with his knowledge and his demeanor. Frank provided me with not only excellent legal advice, but also a calm guiding hand through the criminal process.
My case dragged on for a very long time, but Frank was by my side the whole way. He went out of his way to explain the whole process, and was always available night and day to answer questions and to calm our fears.
Thankfully, the charges against me were dropped and I was able to resume my normal life. I attribute the outcome to Frank's excellent legal strategy and advice (my innocence helped). I would recommend to anyone looking for a great defense attorney to call Frank Doran first and get him on your side!

I'm a level 1 sex offender, first smacking a girl's rear end when I was 14. I am now 25 and the free man because since then I have allegedly failed to register 3 times.the first two were convicted at the same time and I served 6 months. However this last time I was charged with a subsequent offense.this meant a minimum of 5 years mandatory in a state prison, and lifetime community parole.seeing as I hadn't committed any sex crimes sense that it was unconstitutional to put me on Lifetime community parole where I would have to pay almost $100 a month for the rest of my life. I honestly think that he genuinely thought about what it would be like to be in my shoes.there aren't enough words that can express how much I owe this man. I am now married and have a daughter, and going on with my life. That's all wouldn't have been possible if I had been sitting in a state prison right now. He will learn the ins and outs of your case, making him my number one recommendation. This is also the only case I have ever beaten. It's a good feeling! Thanks Frank

I had an unfortunate brush with Law of late when I got involved in a shoplifting case. I am otherwise a law abiding, hard working person, but caught in stress and turmoil of various life events acted in certain way I would have never done in my consciousness. Having to face a judge for the first time in my life and to top that being an (legal) immigrant, I had so much at stake apart from my relationship with my spouse. Panicky, I contacted Frank to represent my case after I spoke to a few lawyers. Right from the start Frank was very comforting. He sympathized with my situation and reassured that "nothing will happen". It was hard to believe at the beginning as I had so much to lose for this one stupid episode of my life but Frank kept on reinterring, "I should be fine." THAT ( the reassurance from my lawyer) helped me and even gave me the courage to think positive and my case was dismissed with no harm done to my record or immigration. And as promised he even worked on getting out the summon within a couple of days of the incident and that mostly helped a lot as I was able put this incident soon behind me and carry on with my life. Thanks Frank!

After being falsely charged w Assault and Battery in Framingham I knew I needed an attorney that has been a proven winner in the court room. I chose Attorney Frank Doran based on his criminal defense legal expertise, positive court rulings, and positive outcomes he has produced for his many clients. I am a Framingham business and home owner . Attorney Doran ensured this unfortunate event could be resolved. -
With sincere appreciation and gratitude,
Thank you Frank.

Mr. Frank Doran is an excellent lawyer, one of the best in Framingham area. The first day I called him regarding my daughter's DUI charges he made me feel comfortable and reassured me that everything is going to be okay. He represented my daughter for a DUI / OUI we were glad that we listened to him to plead not guilty, while most of the lawyers I spoke to before wants to take an easy route of pleading guilty. My daughter won her case and the judge found her not guilty due to lack of evidence thanks so much to Mr. Doran. We definitely trust him he kept us informed at all the time. I will definitely recommend him he is very knowledgeable and will keep you inform at all time.
