Mr. Frechette helped me w/ an appeal and he went that extra mile and beyond. I knew nothing about the process involved w/ my case and he walked me through it. Keeps you informed, prompt, explains what is going on, explains the process, and a helluva guy to boot. Highly recommended!
I am a fellow attorney and I often consult with Franz on my own cases. He is very knowledgeable and is always willing to share that knowledge with me. Franz is a "bulldog" who works very hard for the interests of his clients.
Franz has helped me to properly read the nuances of what is really in, or not in, a contract. His guidance has been priceless on more than one occasion.
Franz and I work in the same industry-- criminal defense. On several occasions he has assisted me in understanding a complex aspect of the law. He unselfishly gives of his time and knowledge, and for that I'm grateful. Like many other attorneys in Colorado, I have great respect and admiration for his work and his willingness to share his knowledge. I can see from the other reviews that he spends a great deal of time with his clients and really fights for them. He is sincere, compassionate and passionate about defending his clients. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs a criminal defense attorney. There are defense attorneys and then there is Franz. He's a true champion of your rights. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a criminal defense attorney!
My small Company was facing possible litigation for an innocent trademark infringement allegation, and I didn't know how to handle it. I called Franz and he was very professional and courteous, got me right out of trouble in a hurry!
I have used Franz on two occasions over the past year. Once to facilitate the purchase of a business and negotiating a purchase agreement and lease, as well as drawing up Wills and POA for me and my wife. Franz's knowledge and experience with contract law and negotiation skills are impressive, Franz's recommendations resulted in significant savings and secured a more favorable lease.
My wife and I were able to secure Wills that addressed property and issues out of state by coordinating with out of state attorneys through Franz.
My Wife and I needed a will and we wanted someone local and reasonable. Our experience was down to earth yet professional. All our needs we met in a timely fashion. Since that time we have recommended him to several potential customers. One friend had a situation where he made a $1500 deposit with a hotel and the hotel canceled his contract but kept his deposit. According to his contact the hotel was to refund the deposit if the hotel cancelled. Our friend did not want the hassle or expense in pursuing this dispute. I recommended Franz as he is a perfect fit for a case like this. We have highly recommended him to people needing wills even people outside the community have shown interest.
With Franz as my lawyer, I received the best possible outcome with my DUI charge. My charges were reduced to a DWAI with minimum sentencing. He was professional, proactive, and kept me well informed. He was honest about possible outcomes for my case as he was genuinely concerned with me as an individual. I would highly recommend this lawyer.
I was referred to Franz by anther attorney. My son needed assistance with a year old debt to the state for an outstanding ticket. The initial consultation was very in depth to set up a "game plan" so as to give Sam the best possible outcome when going to court. Additionally, Franz recommended a class for Sam to complete to aid in his quest for leniency. When all was said and done my son "dodged a major bullet", a sentiment stated by the judge himself! In my opinion, we could not have fared better with another lawyer! Thanks to Franz' expertise Sam is no longer beholden to the state and has learned from Franz' advice how to avoid this situation in the future.
I'm writing to offer my full support and recommendation for Franz Frechette. I was looking at a 5 point ticket and hundreds of dollars worth of fines. Not only did he dispute my ticket down to 1 point, but my fine was next to nothing. I was in awe at the way he negotiated and defended me in a court room.. over just a traffic violation! He is honest and carries himself with a high degree of professionalism. He is more than knowledgeable about a wide variety of legal matters and his total comprehension of the law made for a successful ending. Thank you, Franz!
