  • Donald John Ramsell

    David is a fellow attorney who I have referred many clients to. They have been thrilled with his personal attention and hard work on their behalf. David is one of the few attorneys that, in my 23 years, I have seen who were so willing to invest ALL of their energy into one goal: winning DUI cases. If you have a need for a DUI attorney in McHenry or Lake County, call David Franks. He has served as the chair of the Illinois State Bar Traffic Law Committee, which is one of the highest positions someone in DUI defense can obtain. He just received intensive training in blood alcohol testing, and is unmatched in that regard in Illinois. Call David Franks now.
