About Francine

Learn Francine’s areas of practice.

3
Practice areas

Creating, running and growing a business is hard work. Francine knows that truth personally. After twenty-four years in corporate life (including six years with a start-up), she pursued her lifelong dream of opening her own law firm at the end of 2015. Love Law Firm, PLLC now serves small and medium sized businesses. Francine brings her real world experience of what business leaders want to delivering high-quality, business-focused legal solutions to her clients.

Francine understands that larger companies now routinely see the benefit of having their general counsel sit at the table for important business and legal decisions regarding the direction of the company.  When starting Love Law Firm, PLLC, her goal was to bring that same level of insight and service to companies that lack in-house counsel resources.  Francine has focused on all aspects of law impacting business in her career. Her background includes commercial transactions, intellectual property, employment law, privacy, cyber-security, risk management, litigation management, and corporate governance and formation.

The proud daughter of a decorated Naval officer and a schoolteacher, Francine is happy to have called New York her home for over twenty-five years.  She lives with her family in Nassau County, happily raising two amazing children with her spouse, and doting on several rescue animals. When she's not focused on her clients, she can be found enjoying all that Long Island has to offer.

Francine graduated cum laude from Smith College with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Ethics. She received her Juris Doctorate from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

Everything I could ever want from an attorney
My experience with Francine and her team was by far the best series of interactions I have ever had with a law firm. Every step of the process, from initial communications to a firm plan of action, and ultimately follow through on execution was fantastic. She came to me highly referred by someone I trust, and she delivered on everything I needed. Honest, fair, direct, friendly. A+++

Sharp, Efficient, and Very Reliable
Francine was very thorough and detailed when it came to helping me navigate through some lengthy agreements for my film work. She helped me to understand in the simplest terms what worked in my best interest and what did not. I would absolutely hire her again in the very near future and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to understand the legal side of the entertainment industry.

Best decision I've ever made!
When I first met Francine, it was immediately apparent that she was unlike any attorney I had ever met. I had been interviewing attorneys to join my team of professionals in the start up of my new business model at the time and I instantly felt a very comfortable connection with Francine. While continuing my interview process, I found my thoughts continued to come back to Francine, as she initially made me feel at ease, which allowed trust to begin building between us with our continued conversations. Thus, I started working with Francine. Her first task was to assist me in a very sensitive situation. She kept me posted each step of the way and completed the task in a timely fashion and with a satisfactory outcome, always keeping my company's best interest at heart. Francine is the most sincere, humble and compassionate attorney I have ever met and at the same time is professional, diligent and goes way above and beyond in all that she does! She continues to care for my business and myself as if we were a family member and for that I am truly grateful to have her as part of my team (family) as well! I have and will continue to highly recommend Francine!

Knowledgeable and Compassionate Counsel
Francine has an acute knowledge of the law as well as a very savvy business sense. Her practice has spanned practice areas (e.g., labor and employment, privacy, finance and business, entertainment law, etc.) and practice environments (including very high profile stints at pre-eminent companies). The perspective and experience she brings to any legal issue is matched by few. While Francine has developed significant expertise in the areas of the law in which she practices, what really sets her apart is her practical, ethical, and sage counsel. She is someone you want in your corner, no matter the issue. I could not recommend her more to potential clients of any size.

Fantastic lawyer!!
I recently had to go through a very difficult period in my life. People who I thought would be in my life forever betrayed me. I was referred to Francine and I am so happy I was because she helped me so much. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel like an old friend. She listened, really listened, to my needs and made sure that I received the settlement I deserved. She also helped me see what was the most effective way to present my case so that it would be concluded quickly and in the most cost efficient way. Francine was available whenever I needed her, kept me informed as to the progress of my case, and was kind and compassionate. I recommend her highly.

High-Level of Detail and Individualized Attention
Francine provided her legal services during my negotiation of separation services with a previous employer. She was extremely sensitive to my situation by getting quickly ramped-up while providing a high-level of detail throughout the process. She consistently provided timely responses and I was made to feel that my needs were the most urgent of her other clients. This need for individualized attention was a big motivator for not using a big firm Her articulate communication provided me with a better understanding of the frequent complex legal ramifications. In general, her service provided me with a strong peace of mind that my interest would be protected during a very sensitive time in my life. I would highly recommend Francine for any employer/employee legal needs.

Very Smart, Efficient with Great Energy and Fair
Francine was a senior lawyer at a large investment management firm where I am CFO and recently left to dart her own practice, Love Law Firm, PLLC. She handled a number of different legal activities for the investment firm, which demonstrated her diverse legal background. Deeply ethical and low ego, Francine has always efficiently executed on behalf of her clients and partners in the firm. She is a skilled problem solver and finds very effective and practical solutions that have driven great results for me in my role as CFO. I would highly recommend Francine to clients looking for a great partner with excellent and sensible legal expertise. David K.
