Fran,I am going to try to get through this without crying as I write about my reflections and memories I have of you! I really don't even know where to start !!From the moment I linked up with you I felt this very speacial connection!You never saw color,you never saw anything!You treated me like a daugther even in you and I both knowing that you were representing me in the "Wrongful Death Lawsuit"invoving my mother.I could always email you day or night,leave you a voicemail on your blackberry when you were in court and you always would get back as soon as you saw or heard the message.Over the years in getting to the bottom and to the end of our case.I grew to love you and consider you as "my other mom"and a family member as I have always told you in many emails.I thankyou from the bottom of my heart for all the kindess,compassion and professionlism you shown when I was your client! I was so thrilled when I finally got to meet you in person.
I love you dearly !Your friend and new found family member in Richmond,Virginia, Beverly.

I found Fran to be efficient, transparent, sympathetic, intelligent, and effective as a lawyer. My family hired her several years ago on an upsetting case involving illness and the improper use of medication. Fran was consistently conscientious about her contact with us and the progress of the case. I liked Fran's caution and skepticism, which was always balanced with hard work and efficient outcomes. I was extremely satisfied with the result of our case. She has also gone above and beyond, helping to preserve my anonymity as a client (I was a minor at the time). I can't say how grateful I am. You'd be lucky to find a more compassionate, responsive, and shrewd lawyer with whom to work.

Fran took my case when my life and my family's lives were turned upside down from the loss of my husband. She took control from start to finish and was always there to help / answer my questions and explain in detail the things I didn't understand. I felt very well taken care of and still communicate from time to time. I would definitely recommend Fran to anyone, especially to those who may be unfortunate in finding themselves in a tragedy like this.
