    • I recommend Franz Borghardt.

    Every time I have an issue, there's one guy I call, and he always has an answer. Or will find one for me. He's a huge help every time I've needed him.

    • I recommend Franz Borghardt.

    Not only was he a great adviser the assistance, work ethic, knowledge of content, and support went far beyond the call of duty. You can tell that his primary purpose is to serve. Often times felt as if I was interacting with a close friend or relative.

    • I do not recommend Franz Borghardt.

    If it's knowledge and connections you need, he is great. Beyond that, no thank you. He gave me the run around, did not perform half of the tasks I asked him to nor did he even tell me that he did not do them. When the court is helping you more than your attorney, there is an issue. Never checked in with updates even when I asked and when he messed up I just kept getting blown off trying to fix it. I was on a pretty strict time frame trying to get several different sets of papers filed and several deadlines were missed that severely impeded my progress as a professional.

    Franz Nicholas Borghardt was so extremely helpful in my case. He is knowledgeable and just flat out good at what he does! He is also personable and easy to talk to which makes the whole process a lot smoother! He is definitely the lawyer that you want representing you! If any legal issues arise again in the future, I know exactly who to call!

    • I recommend Franz Borghardt.
    • I hired Franz 1-3 years ago.
    • Franz handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Very helpful when I could get a hold of him but always had to go to him he never once went out of his way to do what he knew was on schedule to be done. Intelligent and personable when others were present, but slightly condescending one on one. Could not even have a simple paper faxed and had to physically drive and pick it up. He did what he said he would but it was like pulling teeth. Honestly feel as though I could have gotten a much cheaper attorney and and would have probably had an easier time. If yours is a more intensive case, then he's a definite yes.

    Franz was my knight in shining armor! I had gotten myself into a situation that could have had serious adverse ramifications for me professionally.

    The first Lawyer I have ever felt that he would answer my questions in a way that I could understand them and made me feel comfortable in doing that. One of the most polite people I have talked to with my issues. If I could help him I would... Thanks again Franz...

    Awesome does not begin to describe Franz. A true professional! After seeking help from several attorneys, I was referred to Franz. He was the ONLY person to listen to my case and instantly agreed to help. He's a very compassionate, well spoken man who is easy to talk to, like and trust. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Thank you Franz for being there for us.

    • Franz handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I had some legal troubles and hired a new orleans attorney. It took him over 9 months to handle a very simple task. When it was over i had some follow up questions that he would just not answer, nor even take my phone calls. I randomly came across Mr Borghardts name in a directory and he was more than helpful as soon as answered the call. I got all the answers i was looking for and some more. I am very appreciative to him for that.
