Banking Litigation

We provide superior quality and creative legal solutions

Who is the Financial Institution Team?

Frank R. Simon founded the firm and formed the Financial Institution Team in 1998. He left one of Michigan’s largest law firms with a commitment to provide quality, aggressive, cost-effective, result-oriented legal services to financial institutions. When the Team started, there was one other attorney. The Team continues to grow. The Financial Institution Team has distinguished itself from other banking firms by focusing on personal, quality service, with the ultimate goal of achieving cost-effective results for the client.
