About Frank

Learn Frank’s areas of practice.

I became a criminal defense attorney because I am intimately familiar with how precious our constitutional rights are. After my arrest years ago, I realized how close I was to being in a situation that could have negatively impacted my life forever. That situation made me realize how important it is to have someone on your side who feels strongly about protecting those rights.

In the Air Force, I put my life on the line to support and defend the Constitution during war. Today, I support and defend the Constitution in the courtroom. My legal career began by representing indigent clients. I saw first-hand how important it is for everyone to have legal representation. This is why I make every effort to make my services available to as many people as possible.

Great Attorney
Frank went to the same NHSTA DRE course that I attended in Atlanta. He proved himself very knowledgeable and asked great questions of the instructors. I would highly recommend him to any one who gets in trouble in Oklahoma.

Don't panic! Call Urbanic
I contacted Frank via his website late on a Friday evening. I had a 2pm court date on Monday for a traffic ticket. Frank personally walked me through the entire process by phone over the weekend including Sunday. He was extremely versed on the Laws and Statutes of the state in which I received the violation. I'm very pleased with his services and I highly recommend his firm. I travel a great deal in my line of work and will pass his information along to anyone I know that could benefit from his services. I have also suggested Frank Urbanic to my local attorney friend to recommend in the future.
