GREAT ATTORNEY
I contacted Frank Malocu for guidance and assistance in getting custody of my daughters. It was a very stressful situation that he made so much easier. He really cares about his clients and works very hard. He is very responsive and helpful. I always tell people I know about the wonderful job he did for me and my family. I HIGHLY recommend hiring him for any of your legal needs.

This guy was amazing!
My attorney had me in New Lebanon on the 16th of January. I was sure I was going to walk in there, and not come out. Frank reduced my charges, went to bat for me, and did it with a smile. Don't second guess public defenders. Go to Frank. You won't be sorry.

Compassion for Clients
Frank is by far the most professional, efficient and personable lawyer. Without the help that I received from him, I know that I would not have had the successful outcome I had for my divorce. He stood by everyone of my requests and guided me through the entire process. He and Nicole gave my case the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court . I never once was treated as anything other than a valuable client by Mr Malocu. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support that I received . I also appreciated working with people that care for you on a personal level instead of just handling you as a "case"... Highly Recommend

Reviewing Frank and his guidance
Frank helped me through a very stressful time always calming my fears. Explaining ever step in the procedure. Explaining what could happen and helped with my decisions,not telling me what to do, but we came to the same conclusion. Also Nicole his paralegal exceptional and I thank her for all her help in guidance make a great team

Dui
Frank is the best attorney I have ever had! I went to him for a domestic violence case about a year ago and he settled everything without me even having to go to court and recently used him for a dui and I was almost sure I was going to jail but that didn’t happen! He’s a very smart man and I would recommend him to anyone having problems

Amazing attorney!
What can I say except 5 star doesn’t do Mr. Malocu justice! 10/10 best attorney in the Dayton area! He is very informative and understanding when I first had a consultation. Made me feel so comfortable in the process and made my worries disappear. He’s very much into each case he takes on. He always keeps in touch even with his personal cell to make sure you’re at ease. He got my DV charge which is a 1st Degree Misdemeanor (which cannot be sealed from your record), reduced to a Disorderly Conduct, a Minor Misdemeanor. And a year later he got it expunged from my record! He saved my life and family! You and your teams expertise is unmatched and I would gladly recommend your services to anyone. Will go to anytime I’m ever in legal trouble. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Highly recommend
He returned our calls promptly. He gave excellent advice. Beyond that, he gave us a real peace of mind that he would be available to advocate for us when we needed. I called during a difficult time and I slept better that night for it. I’m very grateful for his council.

An amazing man and a hell of a divorce attorney
I hired Mr Malocu to handle my divorce after reading his reviews. Needless to say, I was not left disappointed in the slightest. He made the whole process as smooth as possible with my circumstances and he did not sugar coat anything. He laid everything to expect out on the table, discussed my options, and we went from there. I went into court and he bent over backwards to get not only what I asked for, but much more. He is definitely worth whatever the cost and I highly recommend Mr. Malocu for whatever the reason or case. My family appreciates everything that this man has done for us.

Ovi case
Frank was the best possible attorney I could have hired for my ovi case, went above and beyond and the outcome was better than I ever could have hoped. Honest and fair pricing, would recommend to anyone looking for a great attorney who knows what he is doing !

Excellent attorney
Frank was able to get a serious misdemeanor charge dropped down to a minor traffic violation. What would have cost thousands of dollars in fines, jail time, a suspended license and probation, I just ended up pay a $100 fine, no jail time, no license suspension and no probation. Also, his quote was half of what other attorneys were going to charge. Highly recommended!

criminal law attorney
Where do I start? Im so glad I found this attorney, as there is not any advertisements out there for him unlike other attorneys via commercials, radio, ect... The day I made an appointment with Mr Malocu's firm was the best decision I ever made, he was very professional, non-judgmental, and efficient as well as affordable.. He has a great reputation with area judges and also a ton of experience. Im so thankful since day one he showed that he cared and took my case very seriously all the way through until the end. The outcome was incredible and would have been very different for me if it weren't for Frank. My run ins with law and my previous record should have carried jail time for me but Frank got me the best deal with no jail time and its all because he is an amazing lawyer with so much time behind him in this field and again his reputation hes carried with prosecution, other attorneys and judges. people respect his recommendations and opinions and it really helps with the overall outcome... most of all he shows compassion no matter what your situation is and strives to show others ways they can help you be better as a person.. I thank him for another chance... and I will without a doubt hire Frank Malocu with any of, or all of my future needs. I recommend this attorney to anyone whom wants to be treated fairly and accurately throughout the court process. Hes the very best, better than those who have been on tv commercials and/or radio stations... trust me Ive hired them in the past... Thanks again Frank!

Helped me out with an OVI
I hired Frank after getting arrested for an OVI. After the first meeting with him I was very confident that my case was going to have a positive outcome. Frank got my OVI dropped to a different charge, got my other charges dropped, and got me out of serving jail time. His price is also very reasonable compared to what I was expecting.

Taking care of business
I was referred to Mr Malocu. And right away in had a good feeling , he gave me a discount for being referred, i was excited about that. He heard my case, took it all in and was able to handle it with care and prestige. When I heard how he was able to convince the courts to go in my favor i was truly happy and bless. He was well worth every penny.. thanks again.

OVI
Frank saw my husband and I immediately to discuss our son. He right away calmed our fears and let us know everything was going to be alright. He did a great job representing our son and received compliments from the judge as well! We would recommend him to anyone who needs help!

Helped me out with my DUI case
Had to a DUI case going,this was going on my 2nd one with other traffic tickets in my past. Got online and started looking for reviews. Franks reviews were what I was looking for. Gave him a call and explained my situation and he let me know that he could help. He really took on my case and gave beyond the results I thought was going to happen. With the past that I had he really showed his skills and reinsured me that I could take a breath. Wouldn't have been able to get through this without Frank.
