Franni provided expert guidance, counsel and support through my 12-month divorce process, and also, most importantly, was a good listener. I note that every single time Franni got in front of the judge or made a motion, she got what we asked for. Additionally, we settled in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable amount of money, with a minimal amount of nastiness.

I highly recommend Franni. She's a veteran attorney who is skilled at using the law to advise and protect her clients. She is very responsibe and responsive. I hired her to help me resolve an issue with an ex who had substance abuse issues. She worked collaboratively with me and helped guide me through that ordeal.

Frances Turean is a family-first attorney. YOUR family. She does that with deep empathy for her clients' situation, and truly helps those who, in the very difficult time of divorce, need a strong mindset to help them sort through what their new life will look like.
She helps direct her clients to decisions that will be with the childrens' best interest at the forefront. Anger in divorce is so very common, yet Frances is able to help parents drop their weapons of animosity and move to a common goal of what is best for their family. She counsels kindness.
Her integrity and fairness are accolades her peers quote often. Held in high regard by her fellows, Frances is an attorney, yes, but also a very real person.
Frances Turean's professional guidance would be an excellent choice for a parent who wants a guardian angel surrounding her/his divorce. An attorney who can help the family still live happily ever after, even though they are no longer under the same roof. It can be done.

I endorse this lawyer's work. I recently completed a parenting and child support case with Franni. While she was a vigorous advocate for her client, she also demonstrated very good judgment. Franni has a thorough understanding of the law and great depth of experience. She is well-regarded in the legal community.
