Thanks From A Confident Dad
“Gary, I see your LinkedIn posts every now and then and just wanted to send you a quick note. Wow, the last 6 years have been a whirlwind. I just want to thank you again for the support and guidance you provided to me 6 years ago. It has made a monumental difference in my life. My son’s mother and I made the mutual decision to move (out of state) about at a year and a half ago. Ironically, we live in the same neighborhood now, we’ve got our parenting plan at about 50% time each, and we walk him to school. We get along, and it honestly can’t be any better. My son is now in 1st grade, and he has a brother who is a year and half. In the past 6 years I’ve evolved from the scared, immature, insecure person who sat in your office to a confident father of two boys. Your input and guidance had a lot to do with that, so, thank you. I do miss Arizona – in due time, hopefully I’ll be back.”

“Gary and Hanna are the most amazing and compassionate attorneys in AZ. They go above and beyond and would highly recommend them to anyone! They work with you and actually care about the well being of your children vs. Money (unlike most others). I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for my own family. Angels.”
You have changed my life and for that I am eternally grateful.
Dear Mr. Frank,
I just want to tell you what happened after I left your office. I called my close friends and family and told them a synopsis of our meeting. After hearing myself speak, I had a pretty pivotal moment that changed my life. I kept hearing you tell me to take the most peaceful way out and felt my grandma speaking through you to me.
For 12 years, I held onto a toxic hatred for my ex that was poisoning me but I didn’t realize it until that night.
I decided to not take my ex to court because I could not imagine putting my son in that position of choosing or being in court. I also could not justify the money that would be spent on hurting my ex. This change of heart has allowed me to at least be open to forgiveness and I have started small with wishing my ex good will at least once a day hoping to completely forgive In due time.
You have changed my life and for that I am eternally grateful. I will always hold you dear to me as the person who helped me let it all go.
The best part of this story, is when (my son) came home Wednesday I decided to tell him that I was genuinely sorry for slandering his father all these years and asked him for forgiveness. Of course he forgave me and simultaneously told me that his father and step-mother are getting a divorce! My ex told my son he is divorcing her and will be getting an apartment. This solves me getting my son away from her!!!
Thank you for lifting me up to your vibration and instilling peace in my heart. May you have a blessed thanksgiving and wonderful day! I hope to see you again someday…”

When you need better than the best
It is all about the passion. Whether you play baseball, run a bakery, or practice law, you will do it better if you have passion. Hanna has that passion. She helped guide me through my trying times during my divorce and custody case. Her impeccable professionalism, humanity, and understanding as well as being tough enough to get things done was beyond what I could ever hope for. I couldn’t ask for a better attorney than Hanna. She not only cared about me, she also cared about the well-being of my daughter. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Simply the Best!!!!
Supreme! It is unarguably true that this firm’s dedication, professionalism, and skill are without equal. As lawyers, as professionals, and as people they are of the highest kind, quality and order. There is no possible way I could fully express how wonderful Gary and Hanna of this firm are both at their profession and as human beings. I had heard so many horror stories about attorneys in the past that when I found myself in the position of having to find a family law attorney I was consumed with panic and concern about finding the best firm to take on my case. After researching multiple firms of the area I came across Gary Frank P.C. and I decided to call. I was surprised when Gary himself answered the phone, it wasn’t a receptionist or a machine, and in that moment I knew that this was the type of firm I needed to help me navigate through this difficult time. Gary listened attentively to me in what I could only describe as the most panic-stricken state I have ever been in, he never rushed me off the phone, nor did he turn me away despite my being without a stable form of income and his knowing that there was nothing that could guarantee that he and his firm would be compensated for their work aside from my promise to him. Gary set a meeting two days after we spoke and there I met both Gary and Hanna, his co-counsel, and they were very adept at explaining all of my options and providing suggestions that made the most sense for my case. They were open and honest every step of the way and regardless of the day or time they made themselves available to me whenever I had a question or concern. I remember many times calling Gary and Hanna on a Saturday or Sunday during lunch or in the evening and they always took my call and took the time to listen and work through whatever was happening. I consider this a rare and incomparable form of practice and a testament to the fact that Gary and Hanna truly care about their clients and the cases they choose to take. They are not only experts of their field they are also skilled at understanding the needs and concerns of their clients. The entire experience was made easier because of them. They were thorough and competent but most importantly they understood that this case was not about myself or the father of my child but about protecting and fighting for the best interest of the three month old little boy they would be representing. Most lawyers are complaisant and simply follow what the client wants but both Gary and Hanna never hesitated to tell me when they felt we should take a different approach ensuring I understood the importance of every decision we made. They were logical and rational while still understanding the needs of the client throughout the entire process. Most importantly to me I felt like my child was in the best legal hands from start to finish. These are the types of people you want handling your case without question or hesitation your best option for any child custody matter. We we were granted relocation and legal decision making for custody of my infant son.
Gary was recommended to me by a relative. I was in a long term abusive marriage and had had enough and was ready to put an end to it. while being “ready” i was scared to death as i was someone with low self esteem and so afraid of how my Ex would respond. Gary gave me courage to stand up for me and helped me work thru my insecurities so that i was able to testify in court and breath. He walked me through all the steps of what we were going to do so that I understood. he was always ready to answer any questions/concerns i had in a timely manner (and i had a lot). I have recommended Gary to several friends going thru divorce and i will continue to do so. I can’t thank him enough for his help and what he has done for me.
I was going through a family court case & did not have a lawyer. I needed help filling out paperwork & knowing what to do in court. Mr. Frank met with me on several occasions & helped with properly filling out all of my paperwork & informing me of the correct way to file it. He gave me his cell phone # & always returned my calls promptly.
I knew the other party in the case didn’t have a lawyer & I couldn’t afford one. Mr Frank helped me determine what my exhibits should be, & helped me to properly prepare them. He charged a reasonable fee for these services, & allowed me to make payments.
I was terrified of going to court & representing myself for such an important case & Mr Frank made sure I felt confident & prepared. My case turned out very well & the court awarded me with everything I asked for.
A Lawyer that cares
I chose Hannah to represent me because I know she personally invest herself into each and every client. I could tell she really cared and was ready to fight for me. When I called to schedule for a consult, Hanna received the phone call, not some lawyer’s assistant or front desk person. She has gone above and beyond what was asked of her. She knows what she’s doing. Thank you so much Hanna!
“Where do I begin? Gary, you are a godsend. The first day I came into your office, my stress was through the roof! Plus I was leery about attorneys. You changed all that in the very first meeting. Now without a doubt, you are tops in your field and a credit to your profession, but what sets you apart is how caring and uplifting you are as a person. The relief I felt when I left your office that first day truly raised my spirits. You see the whole person, not just a client. And, as for your professional skills, they are unparalleled. You educated me. You protected me from making a huge mistake that I would have regretted the rest of my life. You were skilled at bringing all parties to the table. And when you did, you worked your magic. When emotions flared as they always do, the skill with which you reached across and brought everyone back to the table was jaw dropping. How refreshing it was to see an attorney that puts his client’s pocketbook over his own. Success to you means protecting your client while achieving an amicable settlement as quickly as possible, with the least amount of expense and red tape. Contrast this to those attorneys who maximize their own pocketbook by fostering an adversarial setting, filing unnecessary court documents, and dragging out the whole process, which creates tons of stress and expense for the parties involved. I cannot thank you enough. You are one of a kind.”
I have already recommended Gary to (a friend) for her divorce. Thanks Gary!!!

I feel re-born!
“I can’t tell you how much I am now enjoying my life. It sounds crazy, but I feel re-born! Of course, I have my days, but they are fewer and fewer. I spend time with family and friends and for the first time in seven plus years, I feel alive and well. I will never be able to thank you enough for all your caring and encouragement throughout this extremely stressful and challenging time in my life. I could not have managed to get through it without your support.”
When I found myself needing to file for divorce I knew, as a mediator, that I needed an attorney who was mediation and settlement friendly and who would be sensitive to my emotional as well as my economic needs. When I described those criteria to a fellow mediator who specialized in domestic relations he told me “There’s only one name to give you and that’s Gary Frank.” He wasn’t wrong! Gary did everything he could to minimize both conflict, legalities and cost while providing excellent representation. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone.
I would recommend your services to anyone!
I am very satisfied for all you have done for me throughout my divorce and custody cases. You listened to what was important to me and you made it your number-one priority. The safety of my children meant the world to me and you helped me keep them safe. You are excellent in the courtroom. Throughout all of my court cases and different issues with my ex-husband, you helped me stay calm and grounded. I believe in our justice system since I was lucky enough to have an amazing attorney. Mr Gary Frank, you were a godsend in many ways, and every time I look at my children and know they’re safe I thank God for finding such a great attorney. I would recommend your services to anyone! Thank you once again for all your hard work.
Our guardian angel during our hardest times
We want to thank Mr. Frank for all the hard work, patience, and heart he put into our case. We have actually worked with numerous lawyers (lastly with Mr. Frank) on this one case, and by far Mr. Frank has given us the best service. Mr. Frank is a rare individual; he fights for you to truly help you. As a party involved, I value his commitment and his passion to fight for a right cause, and not just to win a case. I am also very grateful that Mr. Frank is honest and very straight forward about every aspect of the case. He explained the process and the situation clearly, and put our minds at ease during the whole process. He is definitely a quality lawyer, and if you need legal advice, meet with Mr. Frank and I am sure you’ll see why we are most satisfied with his service. If it weren’t for Mr. Frank’s kind help, things would have been very different, and we wouldn’t want to imagine it. We will never be able to forget our gratefulness to Mr. Frank; he has truly been our guardian angel during our hardest times.
I was very pleased with his services
I am a professional in a law related field, and I interact frequently with attorneys. Mr. Frank embodies all the qualities that a great attorney should have. On the professional side, he is reliable, and competent, and on the human side he is compassionate, and honest. His extraordinary ability to relate to his clients and understand their needs is what sets Mr. Frank apart from other Family Law practitioners. I was very pleased with his services and would highly recommend him to anybody in need of legal services.

It was a pleasure working with Mr. Frank
I had a very legally and emotionally difficult case, and was fortunate enough to have Mr. Frank’s legal assistance. Mr. Frank was extremely professional, reliable, and competent. He always kept me informed of my case, and he gave me great legal insights. His litigation expertise and easy disposition allowed me to be comfortable and less stressed considering the situation. Mr. Frank always treated me with respect, and valued my input. I felt part of a collaborative effort rather than the usual attorney-client relationship. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Frank, and I would most definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

He works from his heart.
Gary Frank is the best lawyer out of all the lawyers my family has worked with. He works from his heart. He is definitely an indispensable and valuable lawyer; not only is he very responsible, but we have come to find that he is also a very diligent, humane, and understanding attorney. I am personally grateful for all that he has done for my family. Not only has he been very clear with the whole case, he has also shown us that he puts all his heart, effort, and professional moral conduct into every bit of the process. Although my family has worked with other lawyers throughout the years, seriously, I don’t want to imagine our life today without his help. I also respect and am unthinkably grateful for his benevolence and the moral obligation he has shown throughout all his efforts and work. We were most satisfied with Mr. Frank, and we highly recommend him to everyone in need of legal advice. We just can’t thank him enough. He is someone who helped our family during our hardest times, and we will never be able to forget the gratefulness we feel.
I would recommend him unqualifiedly.
When given the opportunity to write a testimonial for Gary Frank, who represented me in my divorce a few years ago, I hardly know where to begin. Gary helped me in so many ways during those terrible two years I could write a book about the experience. But I’ll try to distill them into a paragraph or two.
From our first meeting, I knew that Gary was a lawyer who could listen. Being a former attorney myself, I know how often a client speaks to her or his attorney and gets the impression, usually true, that they are not being heard, whether because the lawyer is in a rush, or forms an instant opinion about the way the case should be handled, or just because she or he lacks the interpersonal skills to be able to actually hear what is said to them. Throughout my long and convoluted divorce proceedings, Gary never failed to hear me and he always responded in a thoughtful, kind, and insightful manner. I could always reach him, he always got back to me immediately when there was a problem, and there were a lot of them, and he responded in a timely manner to any filing by my ex-husband’s attorney. He also worked with me to try to contain the cost of my divorce, devising strategies that would be less time-consuming and draining on my dwindling resources.
Gary has a lot of experience handling divorces and that was readily apparent to me as I watched him represent me as if I were his only client, responding in court to nasty accusations, frivolous filings, and outright lies put forward by the other side. He was able to be a fierce fighter for my rights and interests, all the while being extremely calm, which really helped me since I was an emotional wreck. I always believed he would do the right thing, and do it in the right manner. I never once doubted his ability or his intention to do what needed to be done. And I was validated in that belief when we finally reached a mediated settlement under which I was given the most favorable outcome possible under the circumstances. There are very few days that go by, even now, when I don’t mentally thank Gary for his representation of me. I would recommend him unqualifiedly.

I retained Mr. Frank almost two years to represent me in a visitation modification filed by my ex-husband. Mr. Frank quickly and efficiently became familiar with my case and was very honest about all the potential results that could occur. I truly feel that Mr. Frank had my children’s best interests in mind at all times and never once did he fail to provide me with reassurance, honesty and good advice. He represented me in court with the utmost professionalism and rejoiced as much as I did when the decisions were in our favor. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Frank for any family law matter and know that I can always contact him with questions and concerns.
