Unfortunately, I found myself Indicted and charged with three federal felonies including bank fraud and money laundering. From the moment of my arrest over two years ago to the moment of my acquittal, Mr. Scott J. Frankel was clearly a gift from God. With patience, professional grace and decorum, sincere kindness and decency, Mr. Frankel shepherded me through the valley of death. His brilliant lawyering coupled with a keen perspicacity for the truth, was delivered to a jury in a fashion necessary to give me my life back. As I took my 83 year old Mother grocery shopping today, I wept and thanked God for Mr. Scott J. Frankel.
I will be indebted to Scott for the remainder of my life and my family is so grateful words cannot express. He is truly a courtroom genius.

Scott was the epitome of professional while maintaining a level of personal care that I never expected. I had never been in trouble before to any real degree, and I was in a lot of trouble. Scott was truthful, humane and always direct. He worked hard for me. He put me at ease, and at the end of the day his abilities gave me the opportunity to move on with my life. I highly recommend Scott. He was the best decision I could have made.

Mr. Frankel was a great lawyer and was on top of my case the 10 months that it lasted. I did not have to worry about anything, other than showing up to court. In court Mr. Frankel had done his research and was not soft spoken. Won my case and everything went well. My recommend is getting all of your main witnesses subpoenaed.

Scott is one of a kind. He has an immense experience in criminal defense but is also uniquely perceptive and caring attorney. Highly respected, tenacious in representing his clients, and hard-working without losing a human touch often lacking in the field of criminal defense. Client should rest assured that their case is being handled with intelligence, experience and utmost dedication.
