Thank You! After our accident, hiring Frank Penney Law was the best decision we made!
Call Frank Penney Law and let go of your worry and frustration and secure needed funds for future possible medical care. We were rear ended and our SUV totaled. Our family had just moved to NC from CA. My daughter and I were together in the car and were injured from the accident. Our first priority was getting better and finding the proper medical care that would lead to a full recovery. I also had to deal with the auto and medical insurance companies and all the bills that start coming in the mail after receiving needed medical treatment. It was becoming overwhelming and then came all sorts of letters in the mail from lawyers that wanted our case. I didn't feel comfortable with any of their attempts to get my business. But I needed help. I called Frank, since I had known him when we lived in CA, and when he explained how he and his staff could help me and basically take everything off my plate that was stressing me out and that our physical location across the country didn't matter, I said "yes, please help us." Frank talked with me as if he had all the time in the world and I felt completely comfortable turning everything over to him. The settlement was more than I could have received on my own and the fact that I could hand it all over to him to resolve was without a doubt worth it! It was the best decision I ever made throughout this process. We were supported by Frank's knowledgeable staff. I can, without hesitation, recommend Penney law offices with the highest praise.

Excellent Lawyer!
In May, 2010, I was involved in an automotive accident. The car was totaled, but luckily no one from either party was fatally injured. However, I suffered from whiplash in the neck and spine, a broken bone, and severe external bruises. We went to several specialists beginning with a chiropractor, and finishing with a neurologist. We were referred to the Law Offices of Frank D. Penney from family friends and professionals in the medical field. We began meeting with Frank Penney that same month. He was very straightforward with his intentions towards our case. We felt that he was caring and considerate. His law offices offered to cover the entirety of our medical costs until the settlement came through, which totaled approximately $18,000! After some back and forth propositions, we did settle. In the end, it was only thanks to the professional help and advice of Frank Penney that we were able to receive an amount that we felt was fair. Throughout the entire case, we always knew that our best interests and justice is what Frank valued. He is excellent!

Very caring and informative
Mr. Penney's office includes an outstanding staff. We shopped around for other lawyers, talked to their "assistant" for every one that we called. We were fed up at how little they assistants actually knew and could not answer our questions. His legal assistant, Kristin is very bright, informative and was able to answer all of our questions perfectly. His other staff is very helpful as well. They do a great job at keeping clients informed and they care about our cases and are sympathetic to the situation most clients are in.
