Best lawyer in LA.
I called several employment attorneys to take my case all of them told me sorry we can't help you at this time, I felt hopeless until, I reached out to Mr. Frank Hakim and his partner Roxanne Davis they believed in my case against my employer. from day one Mr. Frank was very helpful communicating, explaining walking me through all difficulties and struggles with this case against my former employer. Every time I contacted him via email or phone calls he was available to answer my questions and explained the process. Mr. Frank reached out to settle my case to save me time and a headache. Thanks again Mr. Frank and Roxanne in solving my case and definitely recommend this firm to my friends and family, their experience, professionalism is worth hiring them.

Frank has been very patient from the first phone call to the last one once the case was settled. In between, he spent numerous hours on research and follow-ups either with emails or phone calls. he spent a lot of time on my case digging out all the facts about the case. we spent a lot of time over the phone and get to know him very well, he went the extra mile for me above and beyond. The first time I met him he is a very down to earth person and very helpful in nature. I am very happy with the results of my case. I definitely and highly recommend him to family and friends. THANK YOU FRANK.

Excellent Employment Attorney!
I am really grateful that I found Frank regarding my employment wrongful termination case. His valuable knowledge, detailed explanations, follow-ups and the overall support throughout the entire time was beyond my expectations. He was always available for any questions and concerns no matter of evenings or weekends. Now that my case is successfully resolved and closed, I am confident that I would always have a strong legal support like Frank on my side if any future issues arise.

Excellent Lawyer
Frank Hakim was a very thorough and competent professional who always had my best interests in mind. Frank never hesitate to tell me the truth and calm me down when I was in crisis mode! Frank always informed of the latest which made me feel like being in very good hands. He never missed a scheduled meeting and he always took my calls. What I especially liked about Frank was his ability to remain calm in crisis situations. Thank you, RZ

Employment termination case
Frank Hakim helped me tremendously. I noticed in my first conversation with him that he listened carefully and was interested in my situation. At the end of this first conversation, I could see how the facts of my case lined up. That conversation was tremendously helpful. Also, while he was working on my case, Frank was always able to make himself available for questions. I full-heartedly recommend these attorneys.

The Best
Frank Hakim believed in me. Frank never once doubted my issues. Frank and his partner stuck by my side and stood up for the injustice I was receiving from my ex-employer. Frank and his partner restored my hope and faith in the legal system. Their professionalism and individual attention is exactly what I needed. Their many years of experience is what I needed. Frank and his partner manged to get me more than what imagined. Because of Frank and his partner, we are able to move on and leave the past behind us. Don't hesitate....give Frank and his partner a call, asap!

Discrimination Wrongful Termination
I hire Frank about 3 years ago he and Roxanne are the best I had a hard time with this case. Being discriminated against is hard to live with and hard to talk about but they believed me and supported me through the long process. They kept me informed though the years. I cant thank them enough I'm so glad I hire them and it's now over. Because of them I can now put this behind me and move forward with my life. Thank you both so very much.

The Best Lawyer in entire southern CA
I basically called every single attorney in entire CA the answer was that I do not have a case! After 4 months of searching on line and follow up with references I got introduce to Frank Hakim. I could never imagine a more courteous and more thoughtful attorney who helped me through my litigation. Frank was very professional and driven to obtain a favorable outcome. I received a very high settlement and due to Frank’s negotiating skills. He treats all his clients with the same level appreciation and I am very grateful to have found such an exemplary attorney. I very rarely give references, but in this case I have made an exception. Thank you Frank, K.E

Frank took the time to listen to my story and asked very pointed questions in order to ascertain critical information. He also followed-up with updates and any further questions needed to work on my case. Frank was very sincere and empathic to my situation. I would definitely recommend their firm to anyone.
