Review Frank Prestia

About Me

Mr. Frank D. Prestia graduated Summa Cum Laude (Highest Honors) and as Top Graduating Philosophy Major as an undergraduate and on the Real Property Law Society from St. John's University School of Law School in 1996. During that time, he also worked for two law firms, interned with the New York State Appellate and Supreme Courts and the United States Attorneys Office, Eastern District, and was published in the New York State Real Property Law Journal, as well as later serving as President of his law school's Justinian Law Society Alumni Association.


 


As an avid chess player (1989 Nassau County Championship High School Team and 1991 Bi-Regional Collegiate Chess Tournament Championship Team), Frank naturally gravitated to computer chess machines and later to computers.  By the time he was in college, he was not only playing chess on computers, but he studied programming, built his own computer and was even a computer tutor and later founder of a computer hardware distribution company.


 


As internet commerce became a reality and continued to evolve, Frank became involved in legally compliant website development (contractual terms of use, privacy practices and legally compliant marketing) and business litigation.  His experience in these fields led to his current positions as an officer and In-House Counsel for an internet based company.

  • Christopher Daniel Leroi

    Mr. Prestia is an exemplary attorney. I would refer anyone and everyone to him on a regular basis. Despite the fact that I have been a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, and private attorney for over 24 years, I continue to learn from him daily from his Avvo posts. I would recommend that you hire him in an instant.
