With over 15 years of litigation experience, Ms. Frank has the legal knowledge necessary to advise you on the financial implications, business concerns and legal considerations of a divorce. Her goal is to explain your legal options in a manner you can understand, allowing you to make an informed decision about how to proceed.

In addition, our office drafts prenuptial and marital agreements to define your rights and obligations while protecting your rights.
