  • John William Rife

    It is true that dynamite comes in small packages. I have worked with and against Frank over the years and he is a tough, smart advocate. I think so highly of Frank, he has previously represented members of my own family in a domestic situation. He is a good lawyer to have with you and a bad lawyer to have against you.
