I had the great opportunity to be able to work with Mr. Francis on numerous criminal defense cases, and during my time I spent with Mr. Francis, I can honestly say that if you are facing any type of criminal charges, Mr. Francis should be your choice. He is down-to-earth, approachable, and relates well to his clients. He views criminal charges as a declaration of war against his client, and fights zealously to defend against them. As a former prosecutor, he knows the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. With both perspectives (that of a prosecutor and a defense attorney), he is always thinking of how to preempt the other side's argument. He is a step ahead of any opponent in court, and a master of cross-examination. His oratory skills are superior to any of those I have observed in court, and his creativity in court, coupled with his extensive knowledge of the law, make for a formidable force against any prosecutor trying to convict his clients. I highly endorse Burton.
