A founder in the law firm in 1996, Frank has developed a clientele engaged in real estate development, construction, oil and gas development and represents physicians, dentists, veterinarians, other lawyers, manufactures and many other types of business owners. He represents those clients in most all of the legal affairs and has the reputation of simplifying and excelling in the most complicated of business, real estate and oil and gas transactions. Frank has a considerable amount of experience in business succession and estate planning. Frank’s reputation for outstanding litigation in those areas of practice makes him a go to attorney for his clients and a referral for clients of other lawyers who choose not to engage in the stress of the courtroom. Frank has handled cases in many of Ohio’s counties, appellate courts, the Ohio Supreme Court, and the federal courts.
