About Me

When we
represent clients who have suffered serious personal injury or whose
family members have suffered a wrongful death due to the negligent or
intentional actions of another, our goal is to obtain justice and the
resources our clients need to rebuild their lives.


When
we represent clients facing criminal charges such as DUI or drug
charges, our goals are to protect clients' rights, freedoms, and
driving privileges.


When
we represent clients in family law and divorce matters, our goal is to
help clients and their families adjust to the new reality of their
lives while protecting their rights and interests.


In every client matter, we are dedicated to obtaining the best possible outcome for our clients.


 


Our
attorneys have extensive trial experience and a remarkable track
record of success. We are committed to providing clients with legal
solutions that protect our clients' rights.  The
principal of our firm, Frank R. DiFranco, served as a States Attorney
for Cook County. As a criminal defense lawyer, he now uses his skills
and experience to preserve the freedom of clients and protect their
rights.


Because
DiFranco & Associates is a small firm we can react quickly and
efficiently to client needs and problems. Our staff of three attorneys,
four attorneys of counsel have extensive experience in their practice
areas. We have Polish and Spanish speaking legal professionals on
staff.


Clients
who visit our office will find an enthusiastic team of legal
professionals who are committed to helping clients resolve serious
legal problems in a positive way.

  • Martin Samuel Lascola

    I endorse this lawyer. Frank DiFranco is among the best choices a potential client can make in hiring an attorney. Frank is well known by the prosecutors, judges, clerks and practically everyone in the building. He is an aggressive advocate and a strong trial attorney should a case require litigation. He is a well-balanced lawyer and will achieve maximum results for his clients. Without reservation, I recommend Mr. DiFranco to anyone in search of superior legal representation.

  • Thomas F. McGuire

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Di Franco is a very thorough and professional attorney who was always prepared to represent his client. When I was an assistant state's attorney I tried a DUI case against Mr. Di Franco. He was very prepared and well versed on case law to argue various aspects of his client's case. Mr. Di Franco's client was found not guilty because of Mr. Di Franco's representation. I was assigned to the Second district for three and a half years and observed Mr. Di Franco handle many cases during that time. He was always professional and ready. If I ever needed an attorney to represent me or a loved one I would retain Mr. DiFranco.
