Help when needed most
Frank was professional and understanding. He was able to get me a better result than I ever imagined. I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance.

I wouldn't look anywhere else
When interviewing for my lawyer, I take a few things into consideration. How educated are they in my area of interest, am I truly getting their attention, listening to every detail, for a tailored game plan, and are they hungry to get the job done not only for my benefit...but to uphold their good name as well. I found that, and more, when working with Mr. Younes. From contract work to my criminal defense, he had the answer...and if he didn't...he made sure to find out. There are many discount lawyers out there, but remember you get what you pay for...and if you want a hungry, driven, up and comer with experience in settling million dollar cases...look no further. You've found the right guy. I've recently moved out of Nebraska but still find it worth my time to refer back to Mr. Younes when issues arise. I appreciate everything he's done for me and wish, and know, much success is in his future.

Knowledgeable, patient, kind
I called with some questions regarding my current custody case and although I’m not his client, Frank spent 15 minutes on the phone with me discussing my case. He was up front and honest with me about what to expect and how to proceed with a difficult situation. Wish I would’ve retained him when I had the chance!

Excellent Customer Service and Knowledge
I called Mr. Younes today to schedule a consultation regarding modification of an existing child support order and implementing a parenting plan. Unfortunately, the jurisdiction for this case still resides outside of the state of Nebraska so we are unable to proceed with the modification here. I have had consultations with lawyers in different states and was kinda of expecting the same very casual, vague, conversation that I had experienced in the past but this was not the case. Mr. Younes not only provided me with excellent customer service but also provided me with sound legal advice that I did not expect to receive. While my dealings with him were short, I would feel very comfortable hiring him in the future if need be and will be recommending him to any of my friends or colleagues who may need his representation.

Hire this guy!
I called to ask for a second opinion regarding my divorce case. To my surprise, Frank answered the phone. He spent 25 min on the phone with me answering my questions as best he could without knowing my case entirely. He was honest, and up front that he could not give me a second opinion due to the fact that he did not have all my documents to look over. What he did do was inform me enough to know that what I am being advised in my case, is probably the course to continue with. I was looking for a little advice to help me know that I am making the right decisions. What I got was more than that. If he spent this much time with a stranger that hasn't paid him, I can't imagine how much time he would take with a paying customer. If I am ever in Omaha and find myself needing a lawyer, I will be calling Frank again!

I highly recommend Mr. Younes
I hired Mr. Younes to represent me, as I sought circumstances that might better serve my childrens' best interests in a child custody case. His extensive knowledge and poise provided me with great comfort in a very tumultuous time in my life. Francis is extremely careful and considerate, a patient and excellent listener, and a strong communicator. When there were things I didn't quite get, he was diligent in putting those things into terms I could understand easily. He walked me through this entire process with unparalleled transparency and candor. His advise was always linear, logical, fair and balanced, and kept me looking towards the bigger picture. Our case was settled on amicable terms that favor our children, and all things considered, I am very pleased with the outcome. Mr. Younes is worth every penny, and I would highly recommend him and his firm to anyone looking to hire counsel for their child custody case.

Above and beyond
We moved to Frank after our first lawyer wouldn't respond to our emails or phone calls. Frank did more in the first few days than our previous lawyer had done in five months. He was very responsive to our emails or phone calls. He took a case that was floundering and quickly took it a better direction than the previous lawyer had even suggested. With his direction and wisdom the outcome was far better than we had even imagined it might be. When there were problems with the other party Frank took care of the issue quickly and firmly to keep the process moving.

Personal injury
I had a legal matter and someone referred me to Frank at High & Younes. From the first time I met Frank he has always went above and beyond to help me with everything. If I needed to speak to him and he wasn't available he would always return my phone call in a reasonable amount of time. Also, whenever I had a question Frank has always been kind and courteous to me and made sure all my questions were answered. I never felt just like a client to him. I felt that he treated me like how he would treated one of his family family members. Thanks Frank! I will definitely refer you to everyone I know.

Great and honest
Frank younes was an amazing lawyer for my wife and I. We had a some child support issues come out of the blue and Younes really helped us and answered all our questions as we proceeded further. During the initial consultation he really listened and gave honest advice as we went. He is easy to talk to and to understand. He gets the job done I highly recommend him especially if it's a family law case. he made a lot of good points in court and got the better deal out of what could have happened. With our case. Thank you frank.

Very helpful
We could not retain Frank because it was outside of our jurisdiction, but I called to ask questions about a complicated custody case and he was very knowledgeable. He informed us that it was outside of his jurisdiction but took the time to have a lengthy phone discussion with me and gave me several options.
Posted by Grace | June 11, 2015
Trustworthy attorney that get's things done.
From day 1 Frank was able to give me several different options and helped me to choose which course would be best for me in my family law case. Everything was done quickly and without problem. I walked away from court and what seemed like a never ending battle completely satisfied with the outcome. I would recommend Frank and his firm to anyone looking for an attorney who really knows their stuff and cares about their clients.
