Word of mouth at work was that Frank Petro was the best so I went to him. It ended up being true – he did so good by me…I couldn’t be happier. The entire office makes you feel at home – you just don’t get that anywhere else. They call Frank Petro the “pit bull”…I call him the “great white shark”! When he sees something, he goes right after it. He tore up the defendants in court! Read more
