Born and raised in Park Ridge, Frank R. DiFranco has served our community for decades – first as a prosecutor with the Cook County State’s Attorneys Office – to founding one of the premier law firms in Northern Cook County. Frank’s parents instilled in him a sense of service to community, respect for others and a passion for justice.
Having earned both a B.S. in Accounting from Loyola University and a J.D. from Illinois Institute of Technology – Chicago Kent School of Law, Frank quickly rose through the ranks as a tough, but fair prosecutor in Cook County. His abilities were quickly recognized and Frank eventually served in the prestigious Felony Trial Division.
After his service as a prosecutor, Frank realized he could also make a difference in private practice. With this in mind, Frank entered private practice and in 1994, established DiFranco & Associates, P.C., going on to represent hundreds of citizens in our community. He has represented his clients with a variety of legal work, including complex tort litigation, estate planning, as well as defending the wrongfully accused.
Beyond the law, Frank has supported his fellow citizens in many different ways. From mentoring high school students interested in the legal profession to serving as a board member of Standing Tall Foundation, a charitable organization that provides scholarships to students in need – from grade school through college.
Frank DiFranco resides in Park Ridge, with his wife Angela and their children Kayla, Paulie and Frank, Jr.
