Jonathan B. Frank's Summary

My entire legal career has been dedicated to effectively resolving disputes as an advocate for my clients. I am also a Neutral Arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and a trained mediator.

The Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory has awarded me its highest legal ability and ethical standards rating (AV), as well as its Client Distinction Award for positive client feedback (less than 1% of the 900,000+ attorneys listed on and have been accorded this Martindale-Hubbell honor of distinction).

Specialties: My firm focuses on providing bottom-line solutions for business and real estate disputes. My approach is a practical one; I do not litigate for the sake of litigating. I do not take every case, but instead focus on cases where I can provide significant value and solve serious problems. To do that, I use every tool available to me, including all forms of alternative dispute resolution where appropriate. I also conduct pre-litigation audits.
