Super Lawyer- Effective, Efficient and Ethical
Our business is very niche, so our legal requirements are can be complex, unusual and take time. Frank streamlines the legal process, helps us make strong Legal and Business decisions. More importantly they have help us collect on Tens of Thousands of dollars of Loss of Use revenue and damage claims. It is nice to know that we have a Law firm that works hard for us and cares about our financial profitability. I would highly recommend Frank and his group they are simply fantastic.

Wage Garnishment Issue
I had a surprise wage garnishment happen and Frank helped me navigate the waters in verifying it was legit and facilitating a settlement. Frank is very knowledgeable with debt collection matters. His expertise was extremely valuable and very much appreciated. He went above and beyond with his service, and I was very happy with the results. I would definitely hire Frank again.

Excellent, honest advice
I reached out to Francis Huguenin regarding a family / landlord-tenant issue. He called me back very quickly (over the weekend) and gave me excellent advice. He didn't charge me because we decided that the best course of action (for now) was to wait and not escalate the situation. However, if we do need to go to court in the future, he is the first person I will call.

He got my '50k promise to pay back loan' money back
I should have placed a lien on the property I lent money on. A service that Frank was going to do for me but I dropped the ball and didn't follow through. After the property sold and my friend decided not to pay me for the loan from the sale profits, I got Mr Huguenin to go get it back for me. Luckily I had texts of the conversation and he presented it to the judge and clerk and awarded me the entire amount of the loan plus interest. He was professional, he got close to the billing amount he thought it would be for his fees. Good communication and transparency. He was committed to helping me because he knew I was in the right. I am across the nation from him and trusted his firm and I am very glad I did. Absolutely 0 complaints on how he does business and gets the job done. If there was 6 stars, I give it.

Great Service
Frank was hired as defence counsel on a corporate civil litigation matter. He explained the law that applies to our situation and our options. He executed them when asked and the results were as hoped for.

Contract review
Frank was kind enough to review a breach of contract situation for me, was more than willing to listen, offered to look at the contract and give me some very sound advice and path forward. I really appreciated the extra time he was willing to take to help me. He is genuine and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him!!

Knowledgable, patient and attentive
Frank was kind enough to take 45 minutes of his day to consult me on a breach of contract issue. He listened and answered any question I had and even took the time to review my contract to see if there was anything I had overlooked that would be beneficial to my case. If I pursue litigation with this case I'll definitely be reaching back out to Frank.

A true Rock Star in a world of wanta be's
We are a collection agency specializing in enforcing judgments and we've used Frank for several different cases. He's performed a wide variety of tasks including wage, bank and rent garnishments, judgment revivals, etc. In our most recent case he skillfully obtained a new judgment against a very large unresponsive garnishee, which then led to a FULL settlement/collection. This was a big deal for us as we were expected a few hundred dollars from his actions but instead walked away with tens of thousands from that one case. And that's how it usually goes with Frank on the case. We deal with A LOT of lawyers, and most talk a good talk but when the rubber meets the road- very few show up as the kind of powerhouse that Frank has for us. Can't recommend this attorney enough- he's hard working, he's creative and thinks outside the box, is happy to collaborate with his clients (surprised by how many attorneys don't do this) and overall, he's an asset we cherish on a weekly basis. You can't go wrong with this rock star attorney!

Contract Collection
Frank is a great attorney. He resolved a very difficult case which required a lot of investigative research & litigation. Because of his knowledge & expertise, we were able to reach a resolution without the added expense of court costs. I will use Frank for all my legal needs in the future. He was in continual communication with us the entire time. We couldn't be happier!

eviction assistance
Frank was wonderful to work with - he was essential in completing the necessary paperwork to legally remove some tenants for my brother. This had been a struggle until we got Frank’s help. The whole process took slightly longer than expected but the end result was just what we asked for. Thanks, Frank!

Land purchase
Frank represented my wife and I in a land purchase recently. He was thorough and diligent in his preparation of a purchase and sale agreement and was quite helpful during the entire purchase process which went fairly smoothly. I was especially appreciative of the efficiency of his work and his willingness to address issues in a timely manner. I felt his billable hours were reasonable and fair. This is the second time I have employed Frank to help me with a legal issue and I plan to use him in the future if the need arises. Dan

Solid, Grounded, Great to work with
I am a passive real estate investor who has worked with Frank and his team navigating the sometimes murky waters of Real Estate. The great news is that at every turn of the way Frank and his team have ensured that the process has gone smoothly, offering insight to possible issues far before they occur, keeping me advised though out the process and proving the correct guidance necessary to ensure a successful project every time. Many thanks to Frank and I look forward to working with him in the future on additional Real Estate Transactions.

Excellent Attorney - Proven Results
My client, who is a subcontractor, was not paid for work they completed for a large residential contractor. My firm owned the receivables for the projects. Frank represented my firm for collecting on the debt. Frank was extremely knowledgeable and helped us navigate the laws in Washington. His analysis and game plan was well thought out and in the end we collected from the the general contractor and brought our exposure down to almost nothing. Great working with you.

owner/manager
Frank did an extremely thorough job of researching and documenting case law in writing up motions pertaining to our case. In short, he shredded the other attorney. Some $175,000 was at stake, so diligence mattered. We won the case, 100%. When attorney fees were not awarded by the court, Frank again did a brilliant job of researching/writing up a Motion for Reconsideration.

Estate Planning was a breeze
Frank Huguenin's assistance with my estate plan, and subsequent drafting of all the necessary documents, was quick and painless. He took the time to review all the documents in detail with me, making sure all of my needs were being met.

Seamless Bankruptcy Process
I hired Frank to handle my personal bankruptcy and I was extremely pleased with the services that were provided. Frank was communicative, knowledgeable, attentive and punctual throughout the entire process. Having very little knowledge of bankruptcy myself, Frank was able to put my mind at ease and make this experience as pleasant as possible. I would highly recommend his legal services to anyone.

Thanks from a very happy client
I was very happy with the outcome Mr. Huguenin was able to negotiate. I had been prepared to settle for a certain amount but he was able to negotiate a portion of my legal fees as well. I do not generally rate anyone at the top end of the scale but I've given an overall rating of 5 stars... well done!

Review of Frank Huguenin
I am the president and owner of a successful collection agency in Washington State. I have worked with Frank for a few years now. He has successfully handled a number of disputed collection cases and has obtained excellent results (for example, in one case he got the debtor to double their offer a very challenging property management case that involved a personal guaranty that was disputed). Frank has excellent communication skills, is easy to understand, has excellent critical thinking and reasoning skills, and has good legal analysis and judgment.
