Frances Turean is a family-first attorney. YOUR family. She does that with deep empathy for her clients' situation, and truly helps those who, in the very difficult time of divorce, need a strong mindset to help them sort through what their new life will look like.
She helps direct her clients to decisions that will be with the childrens' best interest at the forefront. Anger in divorce is so very common, yet Frances is able to help parents drop their weapons of animosity and move to a common goal of what is best for their family. She counsels kindness.
Her integrity and fairness are accolades her peers quote often. Held in high regard by her fellows, Frances is an attorney, yes, but also a very real person.
Frances Turean's professional guidance would be an excellent choice for a parent who wants a guardian angel surrounding her/his divorce. An attorney who can help the family still live happily ever after, even though they are no longer under the same roof. It can be done.

I am thrilled to endorse Franni! I am a father to an amazing 7 year old daughter, and Franni recently represented me in a modification action involving my child support order. I am also a recent law school graduate. I hired Franni, because family law is not my area of expertise, and the complexity and high stakes involving family law matters require an attorney with very specialized skills and considerable experience. If I had tried to represent myself, the opposing counsel would have cemented an easy and lopsided victory. I had hired two other family law attorneys over the past six years that did not represent me with the zeal or competence that I had hoped for, which resulted in less than ideal outcomes. Franni was a very welcomed change! In observing Franni work, my own legal training reassured me that she made incredibly efficient use of my time and money. What first impressed me, was that Franni made the time in her already full caseload, in order to fit in my additional case. As Franni listened to me speak, she was quick to zero in on the most relevant facts of my case. She was highly knowledgeable on the applicable law, and the outcomes that I could expect with any given course of action. Franni helped me to pinpoint my key objectives, and to define a strategy for dealing with my daughter’s mom that would secure those objectives. Franni was quick to help keep me on track a couple of times when my focus started to veer from my key objectives. I found Franni to use the perfect balance of diplomacy and assertiveness in dealing with the opposition. Ultimately, I could not be more thrilled with the outcome Franni that obtained for me. For the first time in six years, I feel like I have a child support order that is fair! I will be using Franni for all of my own future family law needs. I cannot recommend Franni enthusiastically enough!

I decided to hire Franni part way through my family law case regarding visitation and child support for my son. I was not pleased with my previous lawyer for many reasons. Wish I had found Franni first. She is very honest and will tell you what you need to know and what is likely to happen based upon the law. She does not just tell you what you want to hear. Also she was easy to get on the phone and quick to respond to email. Her rates are reasonable for how very good she is at her job. I would highly recommend her, she is honest and knowledgeable, yet at the same time does not tolerate any nonsense from the opposing party. I believe she genuinely cares about the people she is working for.

In the midst of a very difficult and prolonged divorce case, Frances Turean (aka Franni) brought common sense and a pragmatic approach to the situation. Her professionalism,efficiency and dedication were all instrumental in providing a mutually agreeable solution. She was always readily available to listen and give the necessary guidance and recommendations. To accelerate the process she never hesitated to approach opposing counsel directly. Her experience and competence are admirable.

Franni is an amazing! She understands family law inside and out. She is very compassionate, patient and caring when needed. Franni can also be a bulldog and gets things done, if that is what is needed. I am very happy with the services she provided and would highly recommend her!

Franni was referred to me by my collaborative divorce attorney when a contempt charge was filed against me in a property settlement, making it necessary to obtain a non-collaborative law attorney. Franni acted quickly to meet a 2-week filing deadline with a response and arguments in court that resulted in the contempt charge being denied. In a second and subsequent action taken against me, her response and arguments also prevailed, including the award of some of my attorney's fees.
For my cases, she quickly comprehended the issues, obtained case law for the responses from her research assistant and drafted a response, that, at my request, she agreed to let me to edit and augment in order to reduce her time (and fees for me) a bit.
From the courtroom experience, which included hearing and seeing other cases while waiting for ours, I found that in comparison, Franni was very well prepared, articulate, concise and organized in her delivery. When I checked in for the case at the court, and the clerk noted Franni was my attorney, she smiled and commented that Franni was among the best, presumably among the attorneys with whom she deals. Other attorneys in the hallway outside the courtroom eagerly greeted and conversed with her, which to me meant she is respected by her peers.
In the face of the maddening and annoying motions that were filed against me, Franni's wittiness and dramatic interpretation of the story leading to them and her approach to our response made all our interactions in person and on the phone not only tolerable, but even entertaining. While I would have preferred to not have this experience at all, at least it was rewarding to work with such a competent and skilled attorney and to prevail.

If you're getting divorced, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Franni Turean, who represented me during my very contentious divorce. First off, Franni told me like it was, instead of telling me what I wanted to hear. Franni explained things to me in ways I could easily understand, and she was fantastic at navigating me through my difficult divorce. Franni was always very responsive to my phone calls and emails; she was easily accessible and patient. Franni was also very thorough and diligent.
Franni's assistant Katie was AWESOME; she was a pleasure to work with. Like Franni, Katie was very responsive and accessible.
Franni is a dynamite divorce attorney who truly represented me, my best interests, and my childrens' best interests and I'm forever grateful. THANKS FRANNI!

Turean Law Offices is OUTSTANDING! Franni has helped me with child custody and most currently child support issues over the past 3 years. She is an expert in family law, works hard for you, and has A+ communication. Her paralegal, Katie, is SO helpful and nice. Any new communication that comes through they immediately let me know. Her court presence is amazing. She makes her points and makes them good! I highly recommend Turean Law Offices.

I had the pleasure of working with Franni and found her to be ethical, competent, and, this is a big one: care about her client. I appreciate her legal skills and hope to use her again in the future if the occasion arises.

Franni was on point and realistic about the possible outcome throughout my case. She focused on the core issues and did not allow me to get distracted by the typical responses from the opposing side. She knew what was relevant to the court and abided by this, maintaining a professionalism that I had not experienced before with prior lawyers. We had a fair and positive outcome and she was meticulous in making sure the final order reflected everything the court ordered, so at a later date it wil not be open for interpretation.
