A class act
I am an attorney; Frank Gibson was recommended to me by numerous colleagues when I needed help with a real estate matter. Working with him was like a master class in how to practice law-- he is emotionally intelligent, proved very knowledgeable about the area of law in question, and was respectful of my time. While he was not inexpensive, he was worth every penny I paid him. I can see why he is so highly regarded by other lawyers in the community.

Guardianship Case
I retained Mr Gibson to obtain guardianship of a family member. He went over and beyond in helping me obtain guardianship, and kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend him to any family who needs to obtain guardianship, especially under the highly stressful and emotional time a family may face when needing to obtain guardianship of an adult. All aspects were handled promptly and professionaly.

Ideal Attorney
Frank is the closest thing I can think of to my “ideal” attorney. I am involved in a case against a family member over the estate of my grandmother. Frank has taken an emotionally-charged, seemingly-complicated dysfunctional family dynamic and broken it down into easy-to-understand, core elements. I think his assessment of the situation will help opposing council (or a judge, if it comes to that) see the "holes" in their case and lead to a resolution in my favor. He is clear-headed and always open to negotiation, but also willing to go to bat for me when needed. His legal knowledge is amazing. When opposing council makes unreasonable statements that make me want to get up and hurl obscenities, Frank quickly and calmly objects with some point of law that completely takes the wind out of their statement. And I have to admit, this is more satisfying than hurling obscenities. When I first looked for an attorney in this case, I was aware that I was very emotional and could be taken advantage of. Initially I was guarded with Frank, but soon realized that although he was dedicated to this case, he was also willing to come away with less (for him and me), if it meant a faster resolution and less emotional toll for me (if that's what I wanted). He has helped me stand up for myself and fight for what I believe in and what I believe my grandmother wanted for me.

Frank is a wonderful person AND a great lawyer
We met Frank under the worst possible circumstances. We had spent huge amounts of money with another attorney who claimed to be an expert and who repeatedly told us that our case was "a slam dunk". Then court hearings occurred ... and they all went AGAINST us! We sought another opinion, and chose Frank. He correctly (and at very low cost) accurately predicted how the remaining rulings would go -- from hearings that had at that point been held but no ruling had yet been made by the judge. Frank has been and continues to be the person extricating us as best as can be done from this terrible situation. He is the consummate professional, is honest, is very knowledgeable -- all good things in an attorney. He is also a very compassionate person -- he genuinely feels your pain and works all the harder to get you out of the "situation" that you are in. He has lots of experience, and this has also been invaluable -- there is so much in the law that "depends", and it is good to have someone on your side that knows all of these details.

Frank Gibson Review
We have been working with Frank for several years with 2 businesses. We rarely make a move without consulting with him and have always felt that we've been in good hands. He has represented us well in several contract negotiations. He is very responsive and completes projects quickly. We highly recommend him.
