Professional References

"Mr. Frankovitz is a top IT professional. I was impressed how quickly he came to understand the rather complicated situation my client was facing. His testimony at trial was clear and concise and, as indicated by the jury post-verdict, he connected with them very well. I would definitely use him again in my next case." — Yosef Peretz, Peretz and Associates

"We thought you were very effective... one of the tech jurors I told you about was aloof for most of the witnesses, but he really picked up when you were testifying and actually looked at you. Normally he just stares into space... you were well prepared before taking the stand. We would definitely use you and Quandary Peak Research again for tech matters." — John, California attorney


B.A. in Telecommunications with Phi Eta Sigma honors from Indiana University.
