I explained to Me. Ford that I had to decide between two bad options:
1) pleading guilty to a minor misdemeanor (allowing an unlicensed driver to operate a vehicle/0 points) and have the speeding ticket dismissed or
2) plead guilty to the speeding ticket (2 points)and have the driving while license suspended (DWLS) dismissed
To make matters worse, it was 2:30 p.m. and I was to meet with the prosecutor the next morning. Mr. Ford said that though he had court appointments that morning and couldn't represent me, he did advise the following:
- Ask the prosecutor to reduce the speeding infraction to an impeding traffic citation, thus avoiding the 2 points that would go on my driving record. He said to tell the prosecutor that I need to drive for a living and that any abstractable offense - like the speeding ticket - would result in the SOS suspending my license for at least 30 days.
- If the prosecutor days no, then ask for an adjournment and that Frank Ford would be representing me.
Initially, he did say no, so I mentioned Mr. Ford's name and after a couple of minutes of reading through my driving record, the prosecutor agreed to dismissed the DWLS and amend the speeding ticket to an impeding traffic ticket.
Without Mr. Ford's advice, I'd have a misdemeanor on my record. Thanks for your wisdom on the matter Mr. Ford!

My son was arrested for a DUI and I'm thankful I did my research and found Frank. He is very knowledgeable, helpful and affordable. He is located in Dearborn Heights but also works in the surrounding metropolitan area. I would recommend Frank to anyone in need of an attorney, reguardless of where you live!

Frank was awesome. He is sort of a "get out of my way and let me work" kind of guy, but his results are phenomenal. There were times when I wondered if Frank remembered me, but those concerns were completed erased every time we talked. His preparation is meticulous, and by the time he was done asking me questions, the hearing officer looked like Frank had read his mind and just said "Ok, I don't have any other questions." I had my license back in about 2.5 weeks.
His billing is extremely, extremely fair. I honestly don't think I can come up with any complaints.
Frank's work ethic gave me enough confidence that I would go to him for any area of law that I needed to. If it's not obvious yet, I would highly recommend Frank!
