    • I do not recommend Michael Frank.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    The worst lawyer you can ever meet or hire. I filed for bankruptcy chapter 13 in 2010 with one of his fellow attorneys; If I would have known who he was and that he was going to represent me in court I would have never gone to his office. To start of I met one of the attorneys at the firm, he explained to me the process of the bankruptcy and I was confident that I was going to be ok with everything. The bankruptcy was filed and for weeks I did not hear anything from his office. Every time I would call his office, his assistance would tell me that they were going to let me know if and when they have an answer for the court, when the court day came I was told 1 day before and I was instructed to gather so many documents that I was very glad that I was organized with everything because I had everything they asked. Long story short, every time court day would approach they would call me 1-2 days before the court date for me to send them several documents the next day to prepare my case for hearing. This went on for about two years; finally I get a letter advising me to present to court to finalize my bankruptcy. I was sitting on the bench waiting for him but since I never met him prior to court date I did not know he was the one sitting next to me. The trustee approached him to ask him to come into an agreement and finalize my case. Since he did not know me either or seen me before he started to tell the trustee to agree with an amount that would be 5 times higher than the one I already had. After the trustee went inside the courtroom I approached him and let him know who I was. He was very upset when I disagree to pay $3,000 per month in order to finalize my case and confirm my bankruptcy. My bankruptcy was dismissed and now I have all the creditors behind me. He even told me to leave out of can tuna in order for me to pay for my bankruptcy. I would not recommend him to anyone; not even to my worst enemy. He is the worst attorney you can have to represent you.

    • I recommend Michael Frank.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.

    I had a very complicated case. I had a lot of creditors, including the IRS, and my mortgage company was trying to take everything from me. I had seen several other attorney's who told me the IRS would take my assets, and I would lose my house. Mr. Frank filed a chapter 13 for me, and I ended up paying IRS a very small amount of money, and he was able to get rid of my second and third mortgages. I have been in bankruptcy for two years, and my credit score is already in the high 600's. I will be able to save my house, and I have been receiving income tax refunds every year since I filed my bankruptcy. I have read the other reviews here, and I cannot understand them. Mr. Frank and the other lawyers at his firm are very professional. They accomplished everything they said they would. I have 100% faith in them. I have even referred family members to him, and they have all been very happy with the results.

    • I do not recommend Michael Frank.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.

    I Hire attorney Frank, but in return all I have gotten is the negligent work from his Paralegal. My case was dissmissed despite the court sending a request for corrections. Like the rest of the remark about frank In here, this guy is nasty to his employees, nasty to clients, rude, arrogant, disrespectful, a lier and very confrontational. Avoid at all cost or you will be the next person posting a remark in here about him

    • I do not recommend Michael Frank.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Debt matter.

    We had Mr. Frank's office assist us with the bankruptcy process. This process was anything but professional. He will have you talk with this paralegal, admin assistant, etc. When the court date arrives they will call you at the last minute to request further information. Frustrating.

    Terrible experience. Smart but arrogant. Impossibly disorganized, Made huge mistakes that cost me tens of thousand of dollars in my bankruptcy. Staff, who are the only people you can get on the phone for months, years, at a time are not competent to explain what is happening, which is unsurprising given how bad an attorney they work for. malpractice waiting to happen. run away!
