  • Martin Samuel Lascola

    I endorse this lawyer. Frank DiFranco is among the best choices a potential client can make in hiring an attorney. Frank is well known by the prosecutors, judges, clerks and practically everyone in the building. He is an aggressive advocate and a strong trial attorney should a case require litigation. He is a well-balanced lawyer and will achieve maximum results for his clients. Without reservation, I recommend Mr. DiFranco to anyone in search of superior legal representation.

  • Thomas F. McGuire

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Di Franco is a very thorough and professional attorney who was always prepared to represent his client. When I was an assistant state's attorney I tried a DUI case against Mr. Di Franco. He was very prepared and well versed on case law to argue various aspects of his client's case. Mr. Di Franco's client was found not guilty because of Mr. Di Franco's representation. I was assigned to the Second district for three and a half years and observed Mr. Di Franco handle many cases during that time. He was always professional and ready. If I ever needed an attorney to represent me or a loved one I would retain Mr. DiFranco.
