Since joining Meyers & Flowers, LLC in 2013, Frank has been actively involved in the firm’s product liability and?personal injury practices. He takes pride in being a voice for victims of neglectful physicians, drug companies and medical device manufacturers. Frank is not afraid of the courtroom and has tried both criminal and civil cases to verdict. His attention to detail, determination and dedication to client advocacy has resulted in recognition as a National Trial Lawyers “Top 40 Under 40”, Super Lawyers “Rising Star” and Chicago Magazine “Illinois Rising Star.”
Frank has been actively involved in numerous complex product liability litigations and trials. Several of the product liability litigations Frank has worked on have resulted in multi-billion-dollar settlements. Most recently, Frank was involved in two multi-plaintiff trials involving defective hip replacement where he presented several key witnesses.
Ultimately, both trials led to significant compensation for each of the injured plaintiffs. His compassionate litigation has recovered outstanding results for his clients including $3,250,000 for a 60-year-old Chicago executive that was injured by a defective medical device and $1,800,000 for a local attorney who sustained injuries from a defective medical device. Presently, Frank is a part of the trial team pursuing actions against Conagra following numerous cooking-spray explosions. In addition, Frank is lead counsel in the NuWave and Tristar pressure cooker cases taking place in Cook County, Illinois and Broward County, Florida.
“As an attorney, my goal is to make a difference in the lives of my clients; to give them a voice, zealously advocate on their behalf, and show them that justice and the right outcome can be achieved.”
