    I highly recommend Frank for estate planning - an important and complicated area of law. I trust him with my clients', as well as my own, estate planning needs.

  • Michael L. McCafferty

    I recently had the opportunity to work with Frank on a matter in the Kansas City Area. He not only impressed me with his knowledge in estate and tax planning but more importantly, he showed me that he knows how to listen to his clients. That all too rare quality puts Frank a cut above his peers. I highly recommend Frank.
