What Our Clients Say

Quality

Franczek P.C. is an excellent boutique firm.
They are the one firm that is exceptional in my mind. When they formed they decided to stay small-to-medium sized. They are very good at what they do.
Not many firms have that expertise and the school and employment law practice. The rates are very reasonable considering the quality of legal representation.

Experience

Franczek P.C. has an incredible depth of knowledge and an understanding of the climates in which we work.
Franczek P.C. distinguishes itself as the best firm in town. Franczek P.C. is a top performer. They have an understanding of the local needs in Illinois and help us navigate the requirements to succeed there.

Client Service

I trust the team, I trust their judgment. They have demonstrated time after time that they have our best interests in mind. They are honest and conduct themselves with the highest sense of ethics. They are top notch in all regards. They are very dedicated to their clients.
They are excellent lawyers and advocates. They are very mindful of clients’ need and are both pragmatic and creative in their approaches to resolving issues. The reputation they hold is one of the best, and I find the people to be very service oriented. Their strengths are their professionalism, knowledge, and quality of service. We are extremely happy with their work.

Value

We did a thorough search prior to hiring them. We found their cost, experience, and knowledge to far exceed any of the other law firms we interviewed.
They definitely provide good value for the money. I get good, solid legal advice but not at the price of a large firm.

Partnering with Clients

I have worked with many other firms throughout my career and favor Franczek P.C. as my most trusted legal partner. The most important thing for me is honesty, transparency, and trust. They all share these values, which is why we work so well together.
The factor that Franczek P.C. has over the other firms I've worked with is that they really see themselves as our partner versus just another client in their book of business.
The group is very knowledgeable and works really well with our team. They seem like an internal partner.
