Additional Client Testimonials

David Franks, really shined during a difficult time in my life. He got changes reduced/removed and gave me a chance to drive again. 8 years since then I’ve never had another ticket, my insurance took me back, all thanks to Mr.Franks. He is one of the most honorable men I’ve had the fortune to meet in my lifetime. My hat will forever be off to your firm. Thank you for all that you do and your Naval service. -DD

James Andrle in my opinion is the best family court attorney you can hope to get in the McHenry County area. I’ve had my fair share of working with the family court systems over the last 10 years and I have worked with various attorneys. So I believe my testimony that James andrle has been the best attorney ive worked with to be a reliable assessment. He is very informative and provides you with detailed information. No other attorney that I worked with has done this for me. It really did help me understand the do’s and don’ts and how to keep yourself safe in court. He will represent you and fight for what’s fair for you. He will not give in easily to anything that is below what’s fair. He gives you detailed billing information on where your money is going. He works well with you financially which establishes a good professional relationship. I didn’t feel as if I would easily be kicked to the curb if financially I couldn’t afford everything. After I hired a James andrle there really was more of a peace of mind during my case. I would use James andrle again if I need to in family court and would recommend him to anyone dealing with a tough family Court situation. You need someone who is tough, reliable and professional when you’re dealing with a family court case because this is a time when it is very difficult. James Andrle is a lawyer you can work with. -Kylee

David Franks was invaluable in his help with my legal situation. He was an utter professional and a joy to work with. I would not hesitate engaging his services in the future. I can not think of any reason to hesitate in retaining his assistance. – Richard

As a fellow professional who deals with some of the same clients, I have nothing but good things to say about this practice. I have not used their services personally, but by talking to others who have, I can tell that they care about their clients, are prompt and interested in their work, and do a really good job. – Christopher

From the moment I spoke with Jim Andlre I knew I was in good hands. During the (long) process of my divorce, Jim walked me through and explained every detail that I encountered all along the way. He was very responsive and always made sure that I understood what was happening with my case. He always gave me helpful advice to ensure I was ok when I was un-sure about where I stood during the proceedings. If you are looking for someone that is going to put your best interest first – for you and/or any children involved and help you every step along the way, Jim Andrle is it. – Erica

David Franks was a beacon of hope and light to me during a time when i thought a resolution seemed next to impossible. Not only was he able to defend me from an unjust accusation of a DUI, but his diligence, patience and perseverance really paid off. I was cleared of all charges against me and now able to move on with my life and put this all behind me. I am eternally grateful for his service and i would undoubtedly recommend David Franks without hesitation! He is that good!! – Jason

I would highly recommend James Andrle of Franks & Rechenberg, PC for your divorce and family law needs.

Franks and Rechenberg, P.C. is an amazing law firm. David Franks was my attorney when I was in a car accident. He and his team were very helpful in laying out my options and helping me decide what to do. They were very patient with my complicated situation as I lived out of the state while most of my case was being carried out. I highly recommend! – Hailey

Mr. Frank’s helped me out get out of probably my biggest traffic stop that I’ve had. He got me out of two of my three tickets, and also got me out of traffic school. He is a great listener, very professional, and most importantly very passionate about his job which makes him a great lawyer. I would recommend Mr. Franks and his team to anyone that needs help with any traffic ticket. 5/5! – Jorge

David Franks is a great attorney, standup gentleman and the Honorable naval veteran. His kind and Knowledgeable disposition made me feel at ease while he handled My court case. He was able to bargain down my issue to a simple parking ticket. The whole time I felt I was in good hands. When we parted ways after my moment in court he told me to stay out of trouble and go forth and do good things. I believe Huginn and Muninn whisper in his ears. Honestly I think he’s a bit of an empath I have always tried to do good things and he picked up on that. If you got yourself in a bit of a pickle, David Franks is your man. – Thomas R.

David Franks clearly has a ton of experience with respect to Criminal Defense. I know who to call if I’m ever in the unfortunate circumstance of needing a defense attorney. – Rich

David Franks was fantastic, you will be pleased to have David Franks on your side. His straight forward mindset is comforting. David overdelivers on his commitments to his clients, and I surely experienced it. Don’t think twice, call David. – Jon

Earlier in the year, I was involved in an accident and received a ticket. I spoke with David Franks and we discussed my case. David handled my case brilliantly and kept me updated with the progress. The case was recently closed with the very best possible outcome. I cannot recommend David Franks highly enough. He helped me navigate through the legal process and I’m very pleased with the results. – Donna

Being new to the area and in need of legal assistance, I was fortunate in finding Mr. Franks. He proved to be personal and attentive to my needs. His knowledge and experience from both the prosecutor and defense sides is clearly evident. Your first time in court can be stressful, but Mr. Franks was dependable and walks you through the entire process. A follow-up letter was sent after each court appearance, including detail of future dates and times (if necessary). His assistant Dimitre is detailed and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Mr. Franks in your time of time of legal need. – Bob Z

I would absolutely recommend utilizing Jim Andrle and his law firm . He always gave me great advice throughout my divorce and was prompt with returning messages and always took time to answer all of my questions. Thanks for all if you help and insight Jim! – Bob

After being in a car accident that didn’t seem serious I knew I wasn’t feeling well. After a few weeks and a strange difficulty with getting the insurance to fix my car. I called around to several personal injury lawyers in the McHenry county Illinois area. Honestly, almost everyone I called sounded strange and creepy on the phone, very difficult to talk to them. Until I called Franks & Rechenberg, oh my goodness what a difference. David Rechenberg was very easy to talk to and voice my concerns to, he listened, really listened to what I told him was going on. The staff is open and friendly and made the whole process really not scary at all. I have had legal problems in the past and the insurance company tried to leverage that against me. David didn’t let them get away with that not for a moment and destroyed all logic behind the insurance company’s angle with usually less than a single sentence. Brilliant work, a real asset to McHenry county. If you’re hurt, worried about what might happen if you push back on an insurance company. Let David handle your case you don’t have to go it alone. Based on my experience it’s not worth your time if you feel like you’re seriously hurt. It’s better if you work on your injuries and let Franks & Rechenberg work on your case. Thank you so much! =) – Drew

Mr.Franks is very professional and knowledgeable. He helped me to achieve the best possible outcome in my case. Would highly recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Best lawyer ever. – Eduard

Mr. David Franks represented my teenaged son for 2 traffic violations. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome! Mr. Franks is extremely knowledgeable and explained everything clearly. When the case was presented in court, the judge was highly impressed! The judge actually made the remark to my son that he has a very good lawyer and that is indeed true! If we ever need future representation, I will surely seek Mr. Franks services again! – Peanut Butter 143

David Franks did an awesome job. I am beyond pleased with the results. Thank you. – Samantha

I chose Jim (James Andrle, III) as my divorce attorney the day after meeting him for my free consultation. I went in not knowing what to expect, with no knowledge of the process. Honesty, I was terrified, and my life/emotions were a mess. That day, we spoke for about 45 minutes, and he took the time to explain everything in detail to me. Jim is not a fancy “suit and tie” type of guy, which made me feel comfortable and relatable. He thoroughly explained what his fees were, and how that process worked. True to his word, he gave a discount for paying in full for each billing statement, which was very much appreciated. I was Jim’s client for over a year (yes my ex wife was really crazy) and he was with me every step of the way. He responded quickly with any new information received from her attorney, and answered my questions without making me feel “stupid”. He presented me with all my options, possible outcomes, his recommendations; while at the same time reinforcing that it’s always my decision on how we were to proceed. I would absolutely recommend Jim (already have actually) to represent you during what will likely be one of the most difficult and painful times in your life. Although you’re going through a rough time, please remember to be respectful that he too has a life and needs time off of work. We all need that mental break. – Jennifer

If you need a family law attorney, then you need Mr. James Andrle. His knowledge, professionalism and dedication are second to none. He makes you and your case a top priority, fights for what is right and gets the results you need. Having Mr. Andrle represent me is the best decision I have made. I highly recommend his services. – Kyle

I found this firm via a Google search for McHenry county lawyers, since I was driving out of state when I was pulled over. David Franks was great at handling my case, always letting me know what the next step was. Considering I was up against a year in jail, I’m highly pleased with the results (just a fine) and will definitely be recommending this firm to any friends or family members who might find themselves in a pickle in McHenry county. If you’re reading these reviews and you’re on the fence, I highly suggest taking stock in my recommendation; as someone who’s had multiple driving offenses/court cases thereof, I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer for this case. Thanks so much! – Katrina

David Franks has always been up front and honest with everything I have needed his office for. I would and have reccomend his services to my friends and family.

My life changed for the better as a result of involving Franks and Rechenberg. Franks and Rechenberg offered reliable, responsible, and relevant support throughout my case. I found myself with a significant legal issue, and David Franks provided the prompt, thorough advocacy I required to make my life right. At every turn in the case, David was my advocate. Attention to details are what still amaze me. Near the end of my case, David noticed two initials, “CF” on the final legal papers. In an effort to secure my long-term legal rights, David reminded the court that “CF” was an inappropriate status for the case and that “CM” should be assigned. This was the difference of my case being initially logged as a “Felony” instead of a “Misdemeanor”. The consequence of this legal distinction was vital to securing my professional status and minimizing future law enforcement scenarios. This example was merely one way Franks and Rechenberg helped me secure my legal rights and maintain the lifestyle I worked my entire life to achieve. Franks and Rechenberg provided legal support that was clear and decisive. – Thomas

David Frank’s guided me through one of the most difficult situations I have had to face in my Life. He got my charges completely dropped when facing serious jail time and charges.

THANKS SO MUCH Franks & Rechenburg – Jose

The purpose of this note is to provide a recommendation for David A. Franks, Attorney, Franks & Rechenberg, P.C. I had very serious charges brought against me by the McHenry County Court. Basically, I was charged with hitting a road construction worker and failed to stop, to give aid or to report. I learned later that the worker was obligated to make a 911 call to document it as part of the job. She told this to the 911 dispatcher and she also told him she was not hurt. Still, police came to my house – five doors down from where the reported incident was to have occurred and arrested me. From my perspective, it seemed the whole thing was a misunderstanding and it seemed like the charges were being escalated. I was given 6 citations including 2 Class A Misdemeaners. David worked hard in negotiating with the prosecuting attorney and the judge to bring out the truth. David pointed out many inconsistencies in the case and over several months, there was much give and take between David and the persecuting attorney. David then recommended to me, a special conference between he, the prosecuting attorney and the judge, to which I agreed. David’s coaching was very good and this was the turning point. The final outcome was that 5 of the 6 charges were dropped and I was given 6 months Court Supervision (which is not a conviction). This meant that if I did not receive any traffic tickets for 6 months, the final charge would be dropped. I also had to pay a fine and to take Traffic School, which I did. I did not lose my license, drove for 6 months without incident, and took the traffic school. The McHenry County Traffic School administrator failed to register my completion of traffic school, so I was summoned again to appear in court. The prosecuting attorney advanced my case and David appeared in court for me again — presenting my proof of completion to the prosecutor. With this, the court terminated my case. I sure appreciated David’s respect, calm work and ability to bring this case to a close with good results. I fully endorse David Franks and recommend his counsel to anyone. – R. W. Gates

My overall experience with David Franks & legal team met all expectations…. I felt like I was in good hands when I witnessed the respect he was met with in the courtroom. David worked hard for best possible outcome in my case. Would strongly recommend his professionalism. – Steve

I’ve retained Mr. Franks to represent me in a handful of vehicle related violations. Admittedly, I wasn’t exactly the most responsible driver when I was younger.

I can’t recommend their services highly enough – TY

I had a great experience, that exceeded my expectations. Dave Rechenberg and his firm went above and beyond, and I felt that I was a priority to them.
