Franz was my knight in shining armor! I had gotten myself in a situation that could have had serious adverse ramifications for me professionally. He guided me through the process, keeping me both calm and informed. He made this difficult time in my life bearable and fostered an outcome that may have saved my career.

Franz was recommended to me by my sister, as he is a very well known regular where she works. I had gotten myself into a small bind, and he was by my side until the end. He was very responsive into anything I asked him, and gave me prompt information when needed.

He got me through, and even gave me advice after everything was settled. Franz became a friend of mine, just as he is to my sister, and to this day, I keep in contact with him.

Great overall individual. Highly recommended.

Franz was very knowledgeable and honest throughout the process. Very punctual and accessible as well. Had zero problems contacting and speaking with my attorney. He was also very up front and honest regarding my options and expectations. No surprises. Would recommend Franz to anyone in need of legal assistance. Mr. Borghardt most importantly was successful in the handling of my affairs.
