Very pleased
I have worked with Frank Kocs on two different occasions. Most recently he negotiated a settlement with a company in another state which was demanding compensation for my inadvertently using information / photos for a web site I was developing. I was very pleased his efficiency and the outcome. I would definitely contact Mr. Kocs on any future legal concerns.

Got my MONEY back!
Living on the Central Coast a home rental deposit is much more than a drop in the bucket. As I have always left homes in better condition than when I moved in- my landlord's illegitimate claims in order to retain my deposit came as a complete shock. I called Mr. Kocs he immediately addressed the situation and my full deposit was refunded within a weeks time. Mr. Kocs is efficient, knowledgeable, empathetic and timely. I highly recommend him for his expertise and precision as a lawyer. Above all Mr. Kocs is trustworthy and a caring human being; although this particular case was very small I would completely trust him with with legal issues of any magnitude.
