Background

Frank was born and raised in southeastern Michigan.  Frank has a blue-collar background and is no stranger to hard work.  Throughout his time in high school and college Frank worked on land surveying crews, learning the value of a hard day’s work.

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Frank moved to Chicago to attend law school at DePaul University.  While at DePaul, Frank learned about the law, but also began to focus on how he wanted to apply that knowledge to a career.  Prior to practicing law in the state of Illinois, Frank spent two years working at a law firm in Charlottesville, Virgina, while his wife pursued her education.  After returning to Chicago and becoming licensed as an attorney, Frank decided to dedicate his practice of law to advocating for injured workers.  Frank truly believes that working people are the fabric of our society and he spends all of his energy in representing them to the best of his ability.

When not serving his clients, Frank enjoys spending time with his wife and two children.  Frank loves exploring his adopted home of Chicago with his family.  Frank also spends considerable time trying to convince his oldest child to root for the Detroit Tigers, rather than the Chicago Cubs.
