Super Lawyer
Mr Bogulski is the best. My husband and I have used him for our business and personal affairs for over 3yrs. He has helped us both with different cases. Frank is the first lawyer that I’ve met that doesn’t rush you through a meeting and has you leaving feeling safe. If you are looking for a bulldog in the court room that won’t stop fighting for you then he is your man!!! Dan and Robert M.

Magic in the courtroom
I had seven charges two of which were felonies and he got the whole thing reduced to a single DWAI charge. Absolutely fantastic lawyer, great at reading the personality of the judge and the DA and figuring out the best way to handle the case according to all variables. Frank also had a very reassuring attitude and did not hesitate to explain all aspects of the case and assuage any concerns I had, and was happy to spend as much time as necessary to put my mind at ease. I will be recommending Frank Bogulski to any friends or family that need a lawyer in the future for sure, easy to reach, friendly, and very skilled.

I would like to personally thank Mr. Bogulski for the "EXCELLENT JOB" in representing me in New York State Supreme Court against the New York State Department of Labor, (for alleged over-payments) Mr. Bogulski knew the law(s) and fought like a "pit bull" to prove my innocents to the court, against the Erie County Assistant District Attorney which was prosecuting the case, Frank was just wonderful and won!!! the case after standing up to the DA's office from the very beginning, and was not intimidated. Mr. Bogulski and his staff was very professional and friendly and Frank even worked with me on the retainer fees, so I could afford the justice that he rightfully won for me and my family. I would and will recommend everyone that I know, including my coworkers, should they ever need an attorney or find themselves in legal trouble, to call Mr. Frank M Bogulski, because he is courageous, honest, hard working, tenacious, all of the traits of an "EXCELLENT" attorney

Very Knowledgeable
Frank helped our company get up on our feet as a startup business. He took the time to explain things we didn't understand and bring up issues that may arise in the future. His experience with business contracts and litigation guided us through the challenging process of negotiations as well. I highly recommend Frank if you're looking for an attorney who's easy to reach and attentive to your present concerns or future counsel.

Excellent Attorney
My husband and I just moved to the Buffalo area wanting to buy a house. Frank was recommended to us by a friend, and after meeting with Frank, I knew we were in great hands. The closing process went very smoothly, with no issues on his end. He explained everything in detail of what the contracts state and gave us his best advice. I highly recommend Frank to anyone who is looking to buy a house in the future.

Excellent attorney, highly recommended
Was facing a class D felony charge, frank managed to reduce my charge quite a bit to just a violation with an ACD. He is a strong advocate for his clients and fights hard on your behalf. He is very easy to get ahold of the phone, He will talk you through what is going on and help calm any nerves or concerns you might have on your case.

He was absolutely wonderful
He fought 100% for my case. I was charged with a felony and 2 misdemeanors and my charges were dropped. Small town was trying to charge me twice for the same crime and now I have no record and everything was dismissed I would recommend him very highly . he knows his job and does great at it . Hope I never need him again but blessed that I had him this time

Highly recommended
Frank handled a personal matter for me during a difficult time. He was confident he could help me, and I trusted his knowledge and experience. Turns out, I got the best outcome possible, and it played out exactly as Frank believed it would. I have since referred Frank to others and they have all had excellent results. Frank is extremely knowledgeable about the law, but just as importantly, he is great with people and guided me through my difficult times leaving me feeling far less nervous and much more at ease with the situation.

Excellent Attorney
Frank has represented my business on several matters. I have also referred him to my friends, family and clients on various matters from DWI, business law, and personal injury. He is a strong advocate for his clients and fights hard on your behalf. If you are looking for REAL representation, Frank is by far the best choice.

My boyfriend was facing criminal charges including a gun charge that was obtain during a illegal search. Frank fought hard and got all the charges dismissed. He is very pleasant, and reasonable! I would definitely recommend him to be by your side through any court battle!

Too much hot water

NOT HAPPY !
retained him bc a friend said he was good????? i am not happy with him at all, hard to ever get a hold of him, very seldom returned calls ! quoted me one price then said he needed more then said more to equal damn near 12,000.00 IF YOU DECIDE TO HIRE HIM GET IT ALL IN WRITING BEFORE YOU MAKE THE MISTAKE I DID MAKE SURE THEIRS A CLAUSE THAT SAYS HES NOT GOING TO CHARGE YOU MORE AND MORE ....... in my opinion , he doesn't deliver.... I also gave him court transcripts and i believe he never read them , if he did it would have been a wrap and i wouldn't have had to except an ACD !

Response from Frank Bogulski December 18, 2017
First, allow me to state that I am disappointed about this review. However, it should be noted that the individual is anonymous and does not provide many specific details regarding the case. For example, the charges are not listed and neither is the court. Therefore, it is possible that it may be a fake review. As is my practice all retainer agreements are put in writing so that there is no ambiguity and thus operates to the benefit of all parties involved. If in fact this is a real review, it is interesting to note that according to the reviewer the case was resolved with an ACD, which is an adjournment of contemplation of a dismissal. If basic conditions are met this is a complete dismissal and does not appear on a person’s record. In fact the mugshots are destroyed along with the fingerprints and all arrest reports. In fact, if you receive an ACD there is not even a criminal record of arrest because the case is dismissed. Therefore, at least on a practical perspective the result was in fact good because an ACD is a dismissal. Lastly, I do not recall charging that much money for a single case.
