Fantastic Attorney
Having never been in a situation where I needed an attorney, reaching out to one for the first time was terrifying for me. However, Rachel was very confident in her ability to help me achieve the best possible outcome - and she did! She helped me navigate my way through my entire case and she always kept me in the loop as to what to expect. 10/10 recommend!

HYTA success
Rachel Frank is a very compassionate, professional and responsive lawyer. Rachel represented our daughter in 20th circuit court in Michigan. She was facing four criminal felonies and was able to have the case dismissed via HYTA due to Ms. Frank’s excellent legal representation. Thank you to Rachel for getting our family through a very difficult situation. I recommend her legal consul to anyone facing criminal proceedings.

You've found your lawyer!
I had a mark on my background check that should have been removed years ago and would have prohibited me from furthering my career through graduate school. I called nearly 10 other lawyers and firms receiving the same answer, "we can't help you with this issue and this will always be on your record." My call with Rachel Frank was a breath of fresh air. Her confidence and candor put me at ease and I knew that my persistence in not taking "no" for an answer had paid off. Rachel worked quickly as my case was time-sensitive and she communicated with me along the way. The speedy resolution of my case was most certainly due to her in-depth professional knowledge and dedication to her clients. I recommend Rachel Frank without hesitation, so if you are looking for representation, look no further.

License Restoration
I hired Rachel to assist me with the gruelling process of obtaining my full driving privileges after recieving two alchohol related driving convictions a number of years ago. Rachel was very professional and kind. I felt like I had a friend to assist me during the entire process. She knew exactly what needed to be done and provided me with resources to do what had to be done in order to apply for my hearing all adhering to an appropriate timeline. As far as the hearing itself, I feel she did a great job of absolutely preparing me for all things the Hearing Officer would cover about my recovery, as well as address issues I had with my interlock device within the duration of my restricted license period. She did a great job to help relay to the Hearing Officer all of the evidence proving my recovery and that I am not the person I once was. If you are seeking help to regain your driving privileges I would absolutely recommend her. She made this process smooth, less stressful, and I got an approval for my full driving privileges to be restored on the spot!

If ever needed, we would ask Rachel Franks to help us!
Attorney Rachel Franks and her legal assistant, Chasity Greer are two people you want helping you. Our son got into legal trouble years ago. We "lucked into" the legal team of Rachel and Chasity and were very happy throughout the process. They were attentive to our questions and concerns; had a sense of humor, and made us smile BIG when we needed it. They paid attention to the legal details and Rachel made a plea to the judge that was perfect. Today, our son's legal problems came to an end successfully and we so appreciate the work that Rachel and Chasity did. Thank you so much!!

Response from Rachel Frank June 1, 2016
We were able to successfully expunge a felony conviction from nearly ten years ago, aided by the client's commitment to changing his life and being a model citizen for all that time. We're so happy that we could help him start a new life and wish him and his family all the best.

I could have hired a wide assortment of attorneys for a 3rd degree minor misdemeanor, however, I decided I wanted good firm, but more importantly a young motivated attorney, and found that with Rachel Frank. I found Rachel to be extremely prompt, followed up with any question immediately, and was there for anything that I needed. For never having been charged with anything, and also a little nervous, Rachel came through in every way all the way through to the end. I got exactly what I had hoped for with representation and the outcome I wanted. If your looking for a young motivated attorney, I wouldn't hesitate to hire Rachel again.
