Why You Should Retain My Services to Represent You and Your Family:
Aggressive Representation ● Experienced Advice ● Personal Service
With over 24 years of experience, I can offer you quality representation by dedicating myself to providing you with personal service in order to achieve the best possible results for your legal issue.

I don’t just take the first road or the easiest road. When it comes to my clients, I take the time to evaluate their individual situation and find the best solution to fit their particular situation. It’s about tailoring solutions for clients to achieve the best possible results under their circumstances.”  California attorney Frank Sariol, founder of Sariol Legal Center  I understand the importance of your legal matter. For that reason, I will aggressively pursue every injury claim as though the injury happened to a member of our family. I understand the anxiety that can result from having your income decline while seeing medical bills and other expenses increase. I will fight to obtain the compensation and benefits you deserve.

In other matters such as Estate Planning, Asset protection and immigration, we pay attention to details that matter and that make the difference in your case.

When giving legal advice in these matters, we look at the MACRO picture and give you a COMPLETE solution, not just a limitied one.

Experienced Advice:
The advice and recommendations you receive from your lawyer are only as good as the attorney you retain. You should seek counsel from an attorney who has extensive experience handling the type of matter you face.
As founder of Sariol Legal Center, I have over 24 years of legal experience..
I am a proud member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) California Bar Association, the Federal Bar Association, Member of the Wealth Counsel and the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association (CAAA) for individuals with workers’ compensation claims.

What does this experience and knowledge mean to you?
Well over two decades of experience and accumulated knowledge mean that you can rely on the information you receive and the advice I provide. My extensive knowledge and experience will allow you to make informed decisions and ensure that you have the proper representation to pursue whatever course of legal action you decide.
Personal Service:
Personal service is something every client deserves and should expect from his or her attorney. You will appreciate the personal service you receive from me, starting with your free initial consultation all the way through the conclusion of your matter.
I make it a point to take the time to listen to you and your concerns. I encourage and answer questions, and provide guidance through the legal system, ensuring you are prepared every step of the way. I will then analyze your situation and use my background and knowledge to provide you with experienced advice and accurate information about the law and the legal process.
The information and advice I provide may not always be what you want to hear, but it will be accurate and should help you make informed decisions. I understand that your future, and possibly the future of your family, depends on the decisions you make today.
I believe your future is too important to trust to a less experienced lawyer.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Discipline with Actual Suspension
    issued in CA, 1999


    This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

    Frank’s comment: “I became ill and did not recuperate for months. I struggled to keep the practice running at the best of my capacity but was unable to do so. Since 1999 I have worked extremely hard to keep my practice in top shape, and to provide excellent legal services to my clients. My clients, and the results I achieve for them, are the most important thing in my professional life. I have not had any other problems since 1999 and work VERY HARD to make sure I do not. I currently have an A+ BBB rating.”
