  • Daniel Joseph Gerl

    There is no better DUI attorney in this state than Mike Frans. Period. I've worked against him as a prosecutor, and I've seen him in action as a DUI attorney myself and learned a great deal from him in the process both in court and at CLEs where he has been a presenter. I've reached out to Mike on occasion for advice and he's always been gracious with his time and input. He is without question a "10.0" (Avvo's ridiculous "rating" system notwithstanding).
