I'm happy living in my little fish bowl life , back and forth to work, after a careless driver injured me I needed a accident attorney, after a evening stay at a local hospital,, they were unable to mend my shoulder, I then had to wait a week for a more capable surgeon, I knew the bills would start to pile up, and the sharks would start to circle,, I didn't realize my own health care provider would also start to circle,, Frank Nunes is like Quint from Jaws,, ready to take on the great white, over the next few months of letters and calls from the money hungry Heath care providers I was starting to have worries,, a call to Frank and staff would always put my mind at ease, they have the experience and expertise to deal with my journey through the dark Waters of an accident and injury, Thank you so much for helping me get back to my daily routine.

Highly recommend Nunes Law
Nunes Law, from beginning to end made me feel comfortable and supported throughout the whole process of my lawsuit. It was an extremely stressful time before hiring Frank to take on my case and after he took over I felt relieved that everything would be taken care of. Nunes Law was professional and sympathetic at every turn. Frank told me he would do everything he could to ensure I would receive what I deserved and I can honestly say I am beyond pleased with the final outcome. I would highly recommend Frank Nunes and his team. It is my hope that I do not need legal intervention in the future, but if I do, Nunes Law will be my first call.

Exceptional Attorney!
I can’t thank Frank Nunes and his office staff enough. I was involved in a serious car accident. Leaving me with serious injuries. Frank and his staff were attentive to my every need and made sure I was able to make my doctors appoints. In the end I would not have been able to settle this lawsuit on my own. If I had tried, I most likely would have been left upside down on my medical bills. Frank Nunes was able to settle my case for the maximum amount allowed by the others drivers auto policy. I would recommend Frank Nunes to anyone dealing with a personal injury case.

Great Communication and Delivery
Frank was able to help me with a peculiar insurance claim case. Frank and his team were able to take my situation and assess what steps needed to be taken in order for me to have the best outcome. His communication skills are excellent as well as his desire to teach his clients about the ins and outs of their case.

He answered his own phone at 930pm!!
I contacted Frank Nunes for a second opinion. I was really impressed that he was very kind and so easy to talk to. He's extremely knowledgeable and he explained things in a way that was easy for me to understand. He has excellent customer service skills. He made sure all my questions were answered and told me to call back if I thought of any more. In addition, he gave me names of topics relative to our discussion to increase my knowledge!!! What an amazing experience!!!

Excellent laywer
I had a serious car accident and was buried under all the hospital bills and was completely stressed out. Then I hired Nunes Law and everything got better. They really helped get everything under control with the bills and I was able to see how much they did for me and my stress level went down before my case was even resolved. I would highly recommend Nunes Law. Words cannot express how thankful i am for hiring them to take care of this. I say "Thank You" but those words aren't enough and the 5 stars given isn't enough either. .

CEO
I have been using Mr. Frank Nunes for approximately five years now. He has helped my company with a variety of legal issues. Several times we had problems with insurance companies properly handling and or paying legitimate claims. Mr. Nunes was always able to get the insurance companies to change their view and see the proper way to handle the claims. Mr. Nunes is very good at getting the other party to agree with our position without having to actually file a claim with the court. And in most instances where a claim is filed, he is able to get a satisfactory settlement prior to going to trial. What I like about the Nunes Law Firm is that Frank Nunes is the Nunes Law Firm. You’re not forced to use a junior staff attorney. Mr Nunes is the only attorney in his firm and you always get to deal directly with him. A definite advantage.
