I have had the opportunity to litigate cases both with and against Attorney Grippe and can personally attest to the fact that he is an excellent litigator, a skilled negotiator and a zealous and compassionate advocate on behalf of his clients. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of legal counsel.

I couldn’t be happier

When I fell last year I was so worried about how I would pay for everything after insurance. Frank Bartlett was referred to me by one of my sons. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of attorneys to represent me. Frank went over and beyond in researching and gathering the necessary information to help me out in my lawsuit. When all is over and done, I am completely satisfied with the money that I received after expenses. It was quite a bit more than I expected. If in the future I need an attorney for anything, I will be contacting Frank Bartlett.

Thank you for everything,

Excellent Attorney

Attorney Bartlett took the time to answer every question we had. Sometimes we didn’t hear back from him until the next day but he always returned our calls. My husband normally hates lawyers but he totally respected Frank. Frank treated us like family. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. He’s a rare lawyer. I highly recommend.


I recommend Frank Bartlett

Attorney Bartlett is a truly gifted lawyer with an extraordinary mind. As a past client told me about Attorney Bartlett, “he’s a true artist in the courtroom”. She was right, his ability to break down the other side’s expert witnesses on the stand is something to behold. His amazing recall of depositions taken ages ago and his line of questioning allowed him to trap and discredit their witness. During closing arguments, he smoothly recalled countless facts and details for over an hour in front of the jury without referring to notes. His honesty and true compassion is felt by everyone including the jury. This is an exceptional person. Words can’t express my appreciation for everything he’s done.

I admire Frank for his work ethic and professionalism

I hired Bartlett & Grippe for a personal injury case, and am thankful that I did. After being turned down by a few other lawyers because “I had a weak case”, Bartlett & Grippe took the time to listen and showed me how I indeed had a case, it wasn’t an easy one, but they assured me they would work diligently to get me the compensation I deserved. They did exactly that. I worked mostly with Frank Bartlett Jr, and had an overall excellent experience. Frank is honest, trustworthy, and personable. I quickly knew that I was in good hands, and that Frank was willing to put in the extensive work to win our case. Whenever I spoke to Frank, he always took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I understood what was going on. Frank always gave me regular updates, and whenever I had a question he would call or email me back right away. Throughout the entire process, I felt that I was Frank’s only client, even though I’m sure that wasn’t the case. I truly admire Frank for his work ethic and professionalism. I feel like Frank will be the only lawyer I will ever need, and he has also assisted me in starting a business and drafting a will.

Attorney Review

By Gods guidance, Attorney Bartlett was sent into my life due to a tragedy of a fire which left me and my disabled daughter homeless and penniless. He became our lawyer for a suit against the owners of an apartment complex that burned down.

In my dealings with Attorney Frank Bartlett, I see him as a light of comfort, a caring counsel who gives strength to his client to carry on during the long journey of “waiting” through the court procedures until the case is won. When you call him with questions he gives you a complete answer to your legal inquiry and never does he rush you through the phone conversation until he knows that you understand his explanations. Should there be a question that cannot be immediately answered, he always will call back with the answer. From my observation, I would say that he is a “hawk” of a good detective. This trait is rare in my opinion in today’s world.

This is a fine man I think capable of riding up the ladder of success as far as it goes and may God hold his hand in his doing so. I am blessed not only knowing him as my lawyer, but also knowing him as a person who I feel I can trust and rely on.


He’s in your corner

After getting the run-around from the insurance company, the other lawyer, and even my own lawyer I decided to hire Attorney Frank Bartlett and I couldn’t be happier. He clearly explained what was going to happen and my options through every step of the process. He turned an anxious situation into a positive one and I’m happy to say that I’ve already recommended him to family members and friends who were in need of similar services.
