“I can’t thank Frank, Rita and the rest of the team enough for what they have done for us over the past 6 years. My fiancé was struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian and has long lasting physical and cognitive issues from it. Frank and his team were able to handle absolutely everything for us and get her a designation of catastrophic. They were always so patient with us with all of our questions. We loved working with Frank and his team as they were very understanding of what we were going through, and never gave up on our case. He’s an honest guy, he will give you an honest opinion and holds himself to his word. Extremely trustworthy!! I would highly recommended Frank McNally to anybody in need of a honest lawyer.”
