Lubin An

“I have worked closely with Lenny Franco for a decade. Practicing law is easy when having someone like Lenny Franco readily accessible for advice. His enthusiasm and knowledge in law, but mainly, life, has inspired me to love what I do as a lawyer and human being. One of the finest lawyers who I have had the pleasure to work with.”

Matt Hirsch

“I wouldn’t be the man, or the lawyer, I am today without Lenny Franco. He is a stalwart of the legal profession. He represents his client’s with a rare sense of duty, and honor, and heart. He was my mentor. He is my friend. He’s my Pop.”

Gregory Gelpi

“Passion. Passion for life. Passion for the law. Passion for always doing right by his clients. I cannot begin to say all that Mr. Franco passed on to me as his law clerk, but topping that list is certainly passion. I am truly grateful for all that Mr. Franco taught me and instilled in me – a deep understanding of the law, work ethic, and professionalism – but, above all, the passion that I too exhibit as I now practice law.”

Nicholas Panayotopoulos

“Lenny works tirelessly on behalf of his clients. I learned a great deal from him.”

Steven Altmann

“Lenny Franco gave me my first legal job as a law clerk during the summer after my first year in law school and it was an invaluable experience to learn not only the legal issues that arose in his practice, but the everyday management of his law practice as well. Lenny is known for his honesty and integrity in working with other lawyers and these qualities were always on display during my clerkship. He taught me the importance of having an honest reputation among your legal peers, which is something I aspire to in my practice every day. I definitely would not be where I am today if not for the opportunity that Lenny gave me 25 years ago. Thank you Lenny!”

Jason McLendon

“Lenny Franco is one of the kindest and most caring people I have ever had the pleasure meeting. Lenny carries these attributes over into his law practice. He invests a significant amount of time and energy into his cases because he truly cares for the individuals that he represents. Over the many years I have known Lenny, I have seen him consistently and tirelessly working to make a positive impact on his client’s lives and legal situations. I have attempted to use Lenny as a model for how to treat clients of my own. I would comfortably recommend Lenny to my friends and family.”

Jerry Culver, Owner, Forensic Financial Investigations, Inc.
(Mr. Culver has worked with Lenny on several cases.)

“Lenny Franco is the lawyer that all lawyers should strive to be. He is honest, ethical, truthful and forthright. I was a federal agent for 28 years and Lenny was highly respected by those that came into contact with him. After retirement, I continued my professional relationship with Lenny because of his abilities and reputation.”

Rachel Effron, Immigration Attorney

“Lenny and I collaborated on a case that had criminal and immigration overlap. Lenny was very creative and did an excellent job solving the criminal problem in such a way that we were able to use a loophole and solve the immigration problem. He provided excellent representation and was very smart in the way he handled the case. He is also a super guy!”

Jodi Mount, Attorney

“Lenny is a conscientious and zealous advocate for his clients. Lenny responds in a timely matter to opposing counsel.”

David Mackusick, Attorney

“Lenny is a great attorney who cares about his clients. I have had the pleasure of working on cases with Lenny in federal court when we have represented co-defendants in the same case. Lenny always does a great job for his clients.”

Taylor Harper, Attorney

“As a newly minted attorney, I am quickly learning the character traits a defense attorney must posses to successfully represent his or her clients. I can say without hesitation that Lenny Franco exhibits integrity, honesty, forthrightness, and dedication with every client he represents. Having watched him work in the courtroom and behind the scenes, I have learned a great deal about the type of lawyer I wish to be: a lawyer who combines his incredible sense of empathy, knowledge of the law, subtle tact at influencing even the most stubborn of judges and prosecutors and courtroom experience to offer legal representation. He is, without a doubt, one of the finest criminal defense attorneys Atlanta has to offer.”
