Best of the Best
I had absolutely no idea what to do moving forward after I had just totaled my brand new Dodge Charger. I was in the hospital in immense amount of pain when I reached out to a criminal lawyer I had known for many years ago in what I should do. He Immediately had me call Frank Jones office. Frank and his wife Michelle had me in to their office as soon as I was healed up enough to sit comfortably and explain the situation. Their first priority was to get me the best treatment available to help with my pain. They referred me to one of the best physical therapist in the surrounding area. Every time I made contact with them their main concern was how I was feeling. Once I was finally beginning to feel better they dove head in on the case making sure my PIP coverage covered all of my medical expenses. They made sure I was properly compensated for all the pain and suffering I had endured due to my accident. Always kept me informed throughout the whole process. Not once did I ever feel they didn't have my best interest at heart and were always in my corner making sure everything went smoothly and as fast as possible. Extremely personal people while extremely professional. No matter what time of day it was I had their personal phone numbers to reach out. I will be referring anyone I know especially friends or family if they find themselves in a similar situation that I was in. Seriously if you want a top notch team of attorneys who will do everything In their power to make sure you are seeing the best medical teams in the area and getting you every penny you deserve call Frank Jones and team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The best experience
Myself and my fiancé were referred to Mr. Frank and his team after a horrible car accident. As soon as we contacted the firm, his wife, Michelle, got right to work and got the ball rolling on our case. I have had nothing but a great experience with Michelle and the firm as a whole. She keeps us up to date on everything that is going on, if we have any questions, doesn’t hesitate to answer them fully, and has gotten us and still working on what is rightfully owed to us. I would recommend to anyone to give Michelle, Frank and their team a call and they will definitely take care of you!

Excellent Service
Attorney Jones was an absolute pleasure as well is very professional to work with. I had a very complex situation and Mr. Jones throughout the entire process made me feel that he was indeed fighting for me and that he had also my best interest at heart. Today it's rare to find an attorney actually really cares about your benefit and well-being, I found that Mr. Jones had all of these qualities and I would highly recommend him to any of my friends or family who are in need of services. Mr. Jones and his staff spit adequate time researching and going over and reviewing my case..... I am sincerely grateful for Mr. Jones and his team and everything endured representing me.

Frank Jones
Frank is a highly personable lawyer with an incredibly logical out look on how to go about your case. Common sense can only take you so far and book smarts don't help much in a courtroom. This man fortunately has the best of both those world's. I have an enormous amount of respect for Mr Jones after his help in my legal obligations.

A true professional
Mr. Jones is an extremely skilled litigator and professional trial lawyer. He represented me with an internal matter involving my employer and did an outstanding job looking out for my rights as an employee. He always answered my questions and every piece of advice he gave me was spot on correct. I would (and have) recommended him to many of my friends as a first choice when looking for an attorney for either civil and criminal matters. They don't get any better than Frank Jones.

After being involved in a motorcycle accident with multiple injuries and nowhere to turn I was referred to Frank for help. His wife Mechelle met with me immediately as he was in court. I was treated with such kindness and professionalizm I new he would be able to help me. They completely took over my case and assured me not to worry. The sincere kindness has been overwhelming to me. All legal aspects of this case were handled immediatly and in less than 4 months my case has been settled. Frank knows his business and will fight to the end for his clients. As I began to heal I realized I have gained a new friend and for that I am most thankful to Frank and his wife Mechelle who spent many many hours fighting to get me the help I needed. Can not express my gratitude enough and highly recommend Frank as your attorney!!

Was involved in an incident and was referred to Frank. He was quick to set an appointment and very attentive to what happened in my incident. Frank took the case and worked to get my case settled.

Absolute rock star!
I was referred to Frank after a serious accident and could not have been more impressed with the level of compassion and professionalism from him and his staff. In an accident where you're dealing with serious medical issues, the last thing you want to think or worry about is what your attorney is up to or where your case is at, and with Frank, you don't have to. He and his staff make everything as easy as possible while still keeping you in the loop. Frank is also extremely personable and approachable. I 100% recommend Frank and his practice.
