DO NOT HIRE! I contacted Jonathan Frank about hiring him to possibly expunge or seal a record, or maybe even get it overturned. He gave me a very decent price and because I knew him personally I sent him money via Zelle. Once I finally met him at his office he googled and realized he could not (yes googled, he literally googled everything I asked about that he couldn’t answer). He offered to write me a letter to help with my current position and also another lawyer stepped in and told him he could approach the judge about another option. He said he would approach the judge and keep my money as payment towards the balance to hire if the judge approach works out and I wanted to proceed with hiring him. He never approached the judge or filed anything on my behalf. He did take a few minutes to ask the prosecutor for her advice on the matter while he was at court for someone else and that was that. I text/called multiple times regarding the matter and whether or not to proceed, and he avoided my texts/calls until I asked about my money being refunded. He basically lied about what the money was for (I have what it was for in text and recorded) and never refunded my money that was initially to expunge/seal my record or go towards a balance to hire to overturn if the talk with the judge was successful. He kept it instead for the offer he made to write a letter for me and the offer to approach the judge to see if we can do anything about my case at all and for paperwork he never filed. Totally stealing my money. He’s immoral, unethical and on top of being a liar, he’s a thief! I should’ve known better when I hired him before this for warrants and tickets I had. I sent him money for non-arrest bonds to have the warrants lifted, get new court dates and represent me in court. He told me the warrants were lifted had me meet him at court. I get there and he’s a no show. Then I find out it’s a freaking open court. I get in front of the judge who then tells me there’s no attorney listed for representation for me and all my warrants are still open and I could possibly be arrested. I’m losing it on the inside and out at this point. I ended up handling everything ON MY OWN without everything I paid him for. I took pics of the documents stating my warrants were still open and texted him furiously demanding a refund. I think the reason I was dumb enough to reach out to him again is bc he refunded my money that time and bc I knew him (or at least I thought I did). So bottom line, I can’t speak on experience or the professionalism of the other attorneys, but avoid this thieving dullard at all costs. I’m currently in the process of filing legal complaints.
