“Justice, justice, shalt thou pursue.”- Deuteronomy

If you’ve ever driven past our Marengo, Illinois office, you’ve seen this quote atop our building. This phrase from Deuteronomy carries great meaning amongst our staff and attorneys. Justice is what we work towards every day. You may not even know that you need justice. But know that we’re going to do our best to find justice for you.

We Maintain Open Communication

When you call our office, you will speak with your attorney. If you get their voicemail, they’ll call you back. It is as simple as that. We strive to be accessible and communicative every step of the way.

In addition, our dedicated attorneys are available for after-hours appointments as necessary, recognizing the challenges faced by personal injury victims and those coping with family law, estate-related, and other legal matters.

We also strive to make our services accessible and affordable. We understand that working with a lawyer can be expensive and traveling to our offices can be difficult if you live in a rural area or are disabled. If cost or long travel are problems, Franks Gerkin McKenna can negotiate lower rates, meet at a location that is convenient for you, or arrange transportation options.
