Client Reviews
Mr. Frank Lago provided legal counsel services for me to help review advisory agreements and in the creation release forms. Frank clearly explained any areas that I did not understand and provided excellent service. It was a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to engaging with him in the future. R. J.
My business partner and I are new small business owners. Legal aspects of business can be daunting, but from the first time we spoke to Frank, we knew that he not only was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, but also had our best interest in mind. We have been working with Frank for over a year and we could not be any more pleased with his level of expertise, his timeliness, his overall demeanor, and his ability to answer and clarify all of our questions and take care of all of our business needs. Frank is approachable, dedicated and most of all authentic. C.H.
