Frank was great. He kept me informed every step of way, always had my best interest in mind, fought very hard for my case. He was always cordial and pleasant. I would definitely recommend Frank to my friends and family. I also would use Frank again in the future.

He calmed my frayed nerves after being hit
I was struck down by a car ~ 5 yrs. ago. As you can imagine that is a very difficult time in all respects. The doctor takes care of the medical, but Frank took care of the legal issues! He also helped calm my nerves which were so frayed. I did not know what to expect: a deposition? legal documents? He helped me through it all in a clear and calming manner. That's what you need in a lawyer. That's what he did.

This review is about Frank Trief how informative and direct with every issue regarding my car accident on September 6th, 2010.
I Saira Mohammed was referred to Frank Trief September 2010. I was driving going home from the movies with my two sons Aidan (5yrs) & Adam (3yrs) in my 2009 Honda Odyssey. I was driving 20mph to 25mph between 12:30 to 1am that Saturday night into Sunday morning when i was t -bone at a right away green light intersection, which i had the green lights. The other vehicle which was an Audi was going 70mph t-bone me on to the traffic lights completely removing it and into the front of a residents house. my sons was dramatized, thank god they were seat belted properly. I was the only one sustained most of the injuries, i suffered a slip disc to my spine, torn ligaments to my left knee, pinch nerve to my upper neck and my left elbow. my sons was checked out at the emergency in good health, thank God. I made an appointment to go for consultation at Frank Trief and without any hesitation he was hired before the meeting was over. Frank Trief discussed every single little detail about what was going to be done and what were the steps to move forward with my case. All i submitted to him was photos, details of the accident how it happened and my insurance company which was Geico and still is. He referred me to highly recognized doctors and medical facilities that was trained to handle my situation and claims. He was very on point, professional and informative in every aspect of my case. He advised me to make sure and go to my therapy appointments, get all my X-rays and if needed surgery be sure to get it done. He told me that all my results will be forward to him and that will make our case stronger and will lead in the right direction. I never one day went to court when i was served documents from the other party, I emailed or faxed everyone as I received it to Frank and he told me not to worry everything is going accordingly. I placed my trust, confidence without any sort of hesitation. He made that part of my life stress free and with confidence I was able to continue my life with my sons and Frank dealt with all my legal problems without any complains and hassle to worry about. We won the case and i was very much satisfied and was compensated for my injuries. I will highly recommend Frank Trief because of his expertise, professionalism, and direct approach to every needed situation. God forbid a situation to happen to me in the future Frank Trief is just a phone call away, email or text message. My best regards to him on coming back to do what he's an excellent attorney. Best regards Saira

Awesome Lawyer
I met Frank about approximately 5 years ago. I was referred over to the company Frank worked for from a good friend. When I went into the office to meet Frank for the first time after I had gotten rear ended in a car accident, he was so easy to talk to. He was very knowledgeable about personal injury and always directed me in the right direction. He always returned my phone calls, emails and texts immediately. Frank is very easy to get along with and the most important thing for me was honesty. He updated and always informed me immediately on any important information on my case. I knew I was in good hands with Frank. Should I ever need a lawyer again I know who to call, Frank Trief.
