Thanks Frank!
Frank represented me for a bike accident, he is always responsive, friendly and reachable any time during work hours whenever I had any questions or concerns. I was worried about the hassle of the paperwork but he took care of all of that, gave me instructions for keeping track of the necessary paperwork and got me a settlement with which I'm very happy.

Highly Recommend!
Frank Nicholas handled my car accident case. I liked him instantly when we met. He’s very professional, thorough and friendly. He’s very clear and concise and I appreciate his straight forward, no BS style. He took on my case, which was somewhat complex and he guided me step by step through all the initial documents and clearly explained what I needed to do. From there, he handled everything for me. He answered all my questions right away and responded to every email immediately. He has a very nice office in Irvine and a friendly, helpful staff. I’m very pleased with and grateful for what he did for me. He went above and beyond what I expected and if I ever need an attorney again, I’m definitely going straight to Frank. I know he really fought for me!

Turned down 3x but FRANK BELIEVED IN US and got it DONE!
My husband and I met Frank Nicholas sometime in April 2017 after seeing three other lawyers who turned us down. The case that we presented to Frank was a unique case, a medical malpractice case that required a lot of time and research. A case that would ultimately test a person’s credibility, ethics, morals, time, and patience. Having been told this by previous lawyers, medical malpractice cases are not always clear-cut and straight to the point. In other words, medical malpractice cases are not easy cases to try in court because of the value and risks it holds. Because of our delicate situation, Mr. Nicholas handled our case with the utmost care. Despite having been turned down three times by other lawyers, Frank still took us in as clients. Mr. Nicholas believed in our case but most importantly, he believed in us, his clients. Mr. Nicholas believed that what my husband and I endured was not justified and felt compelled like us (my husband and I) to seek justice. After long grueling hours of hard work and dedication, Mr. Nicholas was able to settle our case!!! Although we had to met Frank under these circumstances, my husband and I wouldn’t have changed anything about the experience we shared with Frank. We are astounded by how well Mr. Nicholas took care of us. There were times where my husband and I felt overwhelmed and hopeless, but Frank was there every step of the way to make sure the process wasn’t too much for us handle. Mr. Nicholas is a fantastic lawyer and a great person overall. It would be a mistake to pass him up as your potential lawyer. Bottom line, Frank really fights for his clients and doesn’t treat them indifferent, he treats his clients with charisma, respect, and loyalty; Mr. Nicholas treats his clients like family. Frank Nicholas has not only gained his forever clients, but has gained lifelong friends.

Car crash resolution
Mr. Nicholas took great care of my wife after her vehicle was hit by another driver. He took the time to meet with us and explain the process that we would use to take care of our case. He addressed all of our concerns, and responded to all of our questions and concerns promptly and professionally. He obtained a fair and reasonable settlement.

Amazing!
A family friend of mine recommended Frank to my family and I after I had been in a major car accident involving a drunk driver. I was 17 years old at the time, and very busy with school and work. I love Frank because he made the process as stress free as possible, and was able to work with my tight schedule. Throughout my case he communicated with me to specify any updates, and he had a very thorough plan. At the consultation he explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, and I knew from that moment that he would do everything he could to help my family and I. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that has been in a car accident.
