I am so happy that my friend and neighbor referred me to Franks Gerkin McKenna. This was my first time having to work with an attorney due to a work-related injury and I must say that I am very content with the way my case was handled. The firm moved quickly on my case. I was informed every step of the way. With every encounter I had with this firm, either with the staff or Attorney Greeley himself, I felt I was treated like family. Mr. Greeley did not settle with the first reasonable offer made by my Adjuster in my case and instead pursued additional monies and made the insurance company see things his way! In addition, they have staff that speaks Spanish, so I felt right at home. I will recommend this firm to my co-workers.

A friend referred me to Franks Gerkin McKenna. I did talk to other attorneys first and then came here. I am so glad I did. I was very happy with the settlement. There was good communication between me and David, Peggy and Herb. Herb did the final negotiations kudos to him for getting the job done. I was happy with the final settlement. Peggy was great she pulled it all together for me. I live in McHenry and would recommend Franks Gerkin McKenna.

I was hurt at work and was recommended by a co-worker to talk to herb and David at Franks Gerkin Mckenna. I had not worked with attorneys before.  Both David and herb called me back and kept me updated along the way in an easy to understand manner.    I was “absolutely happy” with the settlement and would definitely recommend Franks Gerkin Mckenna.

I was a client back in 2009/2010. When I call I get an answer if not right away within 24 hours. I had worked with Joe in the past. The good communication led to a good settlement. The settlement exceeded my initial expectations. I have already recommended my brother and his wife. I highly recommend all the attorneys I worked with: Steve, Joe, Herb, and David.

My co-workers told me to go to a lawyer after I was injured. I didn’t know what lawyer to trust. My father in law told me to go to Herb Franks. I took a long time in getting the information to Herb, but he stuck with me and my case. My settlement was fair and I was very happy with the result. Highly recommend Herb Franks and Franks Gerkin McKenna to other people.

I recommend Franks Gerkin McKenna to anyone. Communication and the way I was treated was great. David Montenegro would even contact me after hours to keep me informed. He and Herb were great and both went above and beyond. I worked with one lawyer before and it may take up to 2 weeks to get an answer. He explained all the details of the settlement. I was happy with the final result and was very pleased.

I was referred by another client, a fellow employee. He told him to come and talk to Herb. I found him to be personable genuine and can be trusted. He responded quickly in a language that we could understand and thoroughly explained the process.  David was also very personable.  I was pleased with the settlement. It is going to go a long way. The case went a lot faster. I thought it would drag out.  It all worked out very well and I am very thankful.

I am located in Geneva.  I never worked with lawyers before so I didn’t know what to expect. WhenIi was looking for an attorney I googled lawyers in my area.  Franks Gerkin Mckenna was highly recommended on Avvo.  Mr. Franks always answered my questions.  David checked in with me often and kept me up to date.  I would recommend FGM to my friends. The settlement was more than expected.  It was a great experience and I have no complaints.

You have been an absolute dream to work with. I can’t say enough wonderful things about your professionalism, kindness, and knowledge. I have been involved with probably over 50 closings in all sorts of capacity over the years and I’ve never encountered someone as valuable as you. Thanks again.

I was happy with the settlement but I had hoped more. It was fair. A coworker had referred me. I fond both David and Herb very personable and both returned calls right away. This was my first time dealing with an attorney. They always asked how I was doing. I would highly recommend.

I had an accident at work and the insurance was not paying. Both Herb and David answered my questions and reached a good settlement. If I need a lawyer again I would come back to Franks Gerkin McKenna. They were friendly and competent.
