Below are the areas of law in which we provide our legal services.

Criminal Defense

Federal Criminal Defense

An arrest on a federal warrant is usually the result of an exhaustive investigation by skilled FBI special agents who have passed their case on to highly trained U.S. attorneys. This is the big leagues of criminal prosecution, so your defense requires an attorney whose experience and skill are equal to the task. For more than 40 years, Lenny Franco of The Franco Law Firm, P.C. has fought and won tough civil and criminal cases in federal court. You can trust us to manage your defense to a wide range of charged crimes.

If you have been arrested in Atlanta or vicinity, attorney Lenny Franco and Michael Namer of The Franco Law Firm, P.C. can provide the determined defense representation you need. For more than 40 years, we have helped clients who suddenly found themselves in trouble with the law. Whether you used poor judgment under stressful circumstances or are the victim of overzealous or mistaken law enforcement, you can rely on our experience and skill as we assert your rights and protect your interests throughout the legal process.


A will is essential at every stage of your life, providing you with the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes for what will happen upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to someone who is not your blood relative, e.g., a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your beloved pet — and the decisions the court makes might not reflect your desires. The Franco Law Firm, P.C. can draft a valid will that accurately conveys your intentions so your final wishes will be honored.

Appellate Law

The Franco Law Firm, P.C. is dedicated to providing clients the highest caliber representation in all phases of litigation, including appeals. We are attorneys who excel at appealing adverse trial court rulings and also successfully defend lower court victories on appeal. We do so by keeping abreast of litigation trends and ever-changing case law. We monitor each case our firm tries for potential points of appeal, ensuring any errors against us are preserved for post-trial relief, and we are prepared to defend rulings in your favor.

Auto Accident

Auto accidents have the potential to negatively impact your job, your family, your health and your quality of life. Even an apparently minor traffic accident may result in serious injuries. If you have been hurt because someone was negligent, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and lost income. The Franco Law Firm, P.C. has successfully represented clients injured in auto accidents in Georgia for more than 40 years. If you have been injured in a car, motorcycle, truck, ATV, boat or pedestrian-related accident, we can help.

Personal Injury Litigation

With personal injury claims on the rise, the need for a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney is growing every day. The Franco Law Firm, P.C. represents injury victims as well as businesses, property owners, insurance companies, contractors, healthcare providers and other professionals in personal injury lawsuits. Whether you are seeking damages after an injury or trying to protect your business from claims, we fight for you. We know that personal injury settlements range widely in value, so we help clients negotiate fair settlements or take cases to trial to get the best results possible.


The dissolution of a marriage involves crucial decisions about the welfare of your children and the equitable division of your assets. The Franco Law Firm, P.C. is experienced in divorce law. We consider all aspects of your divorce case to develop the best possible solutions regarding child custody and visitation rights, child support, distribution of personal property, division of marital debts, sale or possession of marital home, and spousal support or temporary support.

Business Litigation

A prolonged business dispute causes you aggravation and costs you time and money. When you’re locked in a contentious disagreement, you want a resolution that protects all of your business interests. A scorched-earth litigation strategy might win your case, but it could prove too costly and irreparably damage a business relationship you need to rely on in the future. But passively negotiating without showing any teeth could drag the issue out indefinitely. At The Franco Law Firm, P.C., we draw on more than 40 years of complex, high-value litigation in state and federal civil court. We know how to reach creative resolutions that protect our clients’ interests while managing time and expense.
