I am extremely happy and LUCKY that I found Franz in my time of need. My case seemed ridiculously impossible, and as if the consequences would stay with me for years to come. I found myself convicted of a DUI with a ridiculously high BAC, and the looming threat of real jail time. And to boot, I had incriminated myself in the police report. Everything pointed to hell, but Franz kept me calm, talked me through every option, and gave me the clearest instructions on what I was to do to help myself from here.
Every piece of advice helped. He was always available--either by phone or email--anytime that I needed to talk, or anytime that I had questions.
The price was right, and the consultation was excellent. Most impressive to me, Franz took the time to actually humanize me before the court rather than present me as another case. In the end, my sentence was the lightest it could possibly be (which was unbelievable, all things considered).
I couldn't be happier with how Franz helped me,and I certainly wouldn't have gone with anyone else.
Franz was fantastic lawyer. He not only gave me great legal counsel he listened to me and was a friend. I thought my case would be cut and dry. Franz convinced me to “run out every ground ball”. I took his advice and my case was dismissed on a technicality. At the same time, he had a plan for whatever avenue the case may have gone. Thank you Franz!
In late January of 2015 I made the mistake of getting in my car and driving after smoking marijuana. I got pulled over and arrested for a DUI. With no experience or no idea what steps I needed to take after my arrest, I contacted Franz P. Frechette for legal advice. After the very first time talking over the phone I could tell this man was very serious and dedicated about what he was doing. He didn't just give me a clear direction to go in, he was there helping me every step of the way and making sure I was on top of what I was doing. His advice and presence in the court room helped me negotiate a deal with the DA and Judge which kept me out of jail and got my DUI dropped to a DWAI. I really appreciated the advice, help, and kindness i was treated with while consulting Franz P. Frechette.
Franz did a great job handling my dui case. He was professional, and provided me with realistic expectations for potential outcomes of my case. He worked hard to negotiate with the DA for a better result than I expected! I could not have gotten better representation. I would highly recommend him.
Franz was with me every step of the way, explaining what to expect and how to navigate what was going to happen. He listened to my story initially and went over the different approaches the we could take. During the whole process he kept in contact with me, and was understanding to what I was going through. I would definitely recommend Franz!
I contacted Franz after getting a DUI. Not only did he do a great job representing me, he helped to calm the stress associated with being in trouble and dealing with the legal system. While the process is scary in and of itself, Franz was always there to offer his support and extensive knowledge of the law. He always kept me in the loop and made it his goal to make sure my case would turn out with the best possible outcome! If you hire Franz, know you are in great hands!

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!
