Fantastic Lawyer During a Terrible Circumstance
Frank Harper was a fantastic lawyer. He helped me front start to finish in my case. He supported me from day one and ensured that I was treated fairly. He responded quickly to all calls and answered all questions thoughtfully. I had never been in this situation before, and he helped me with all worries and confusion. I'm sure that we all look for a criminal lawyer during unfortunate times (regardless of the circumstances), and Frank treated me with dignity and respect. My circumstance was a bit complicated with unjust claims, and Frank handled it delicately and quickly. We received an amazing outcome. I highly recommend Frank Harper.

No matter what issues I brought to Mr. Harper he was there to listen to every concern and question and never hesitated to help me through things. I can’t speak highly enough of this firm! Would recommend 10/10 for any case big or small!

Frank Harper II -- Highly Recommend
I highly recommend Mr. Harper for anyone that finds themselves in need of a criminal attorney. Mr. Harper provided expert guidance to help me through a very stressful time related to some serious charges incurred by my son. He and his staff were always responsive and actually seemed to care about my son. He was able to negotiate a plea agreement with the DA that provided the best possible outcome for my son. Once again, I can not speak more highly of Mr. Harper.

Very Helpful
Mr.Harper was able to make time and meet with me shortly after contact. I appreciated the time he spent explaining the law and court processes that were to occur in my son's case. Thank you again!

Great attorney and very responsive.
I had a huge problem with my NY commercial drivers license from a ticket that I have received in North Carolina from15 yrs prior that finally made it into the national driver database. I had searched for about a dozen lawyers trying to resolve this problem and it was such a hassle to reach and speak to a lawyer. Mr Harper answered my call directly, jumped on my case right away and always returned my calls the same day unlike other lawyers. I had to hire him immediately especially since he was knowledgable and had experience with cases like mine. He was at the next a valuable court date and had my speeding ticket reduced to a equipment violation. I suggest whoever reads this review to hire this lawyer. You won't regret it.

Frank Harper takes his job seriously and cares about his clients
Another Attorney recommended Frank Harper to handle a drug possession case for my son. I was immediately put at ease by Mr. Harper's directness, explanations of the process and his desire to help point my son in the right direction once the case was resolved. I was impressed with his knowledge and experience. After the initial consultation, he gave me a time frame of when he would visit my son and speak to him about the case. Mr. Harper called me the same day he saw my son to let me know (with my son's permission) what the next steps would be and what different outcomes to expect. His fees were very reasonable. While Mr. Harper could have charged more to go to trial, he put his clients bast interests first and was able to resolve the case by working out a plea deal with the DA. During this process, there were 2 or 3 times when I had questions and left messages for Mr. Harper. I always received a call back within 24 hours. If he did not know an answer, he was honest and would call me back with the information (Ex: the arresting Deputy needed to be contacted for the details). Mr. Harper also spoke with me about rehab options once the case was resolved. All in all, I highly recommend Frank Harper. It was a tough experience but once I hired Mr. Harper, I had a sense of relief that someone was handling my son's case with integrity and experience.
