  • Martin H Mathers

    I endorse this lawyer. I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Frank as a friend and colleague for over 25 years. Frank is a great lawyer - and even better person. He is well regarded and respected by everyone in the legal community - from the judges, juries, opposing lawyers, and especially his clients. Frank is truly a champion in the court room and out.
