I am 86 years old and i didn't know anything about making a will. I tried two lawyers and did no t feel confident of their abilities.. I asked a friend who told me that she had found attorney Frees and he so impressed her that she told her children and they also used his services and were as pleased as she was.
. I made an appointment.
He was so friendly and so knowledgeable. He guided me clearly explaining the mistakes not to make as well as the best way he knew to accomplish what I wanted..The finished product was better than I had hoped for. I recommend him highly knowing that you will be so thankful to have an honest intelligent and wise lawyer... You can have confidence in Attorney David Frees..

Back in 1998, when my husband and I came to live in Phoenixville, we immediately looked for an attorney to write our Wills. Everyone who was asked to give a recommendation gave the name of David M. Frees III because he was known to be the most trusted, knowledgeable local attorney in this field of writing Wills and guiding in Estate Planning. We found this to be the truth because he assisted us with a most complex situation with our Wills, taking into consideration all manner of inherited entities and complex financial instruments. David met us where we were, never spoke down to us and carefully intoduced us to details of the laws which we could not understand from a so called lay persons' vantage point.
When my husband became terminally ill, David knew the weight of this sorrow and helped us -- immediately met with us, as we were literally running out of time -- to establish the Trust Under Will, so complicated but so necessary. Again, David always met with us as persons, individuals, not ever just 'clients' who had no feelings or fears. David is personal and always, always the ultimate professional -- respectful, down to the littlest detail and he has the Staff who emulate his responsive, imformed way of being.
One other aspect of David's Law Practice that has been - with my most recent re-writing of my own Will - most overwhelmingly obvious is David's extensive, deep and most up-to-date knowledge of the Federal and Commonwealth Tax Laws, and Probate Laws in all States and Commonwealths! He helped me with the most complicated and 'air-tight' revision of my own Will to protect our children and their families in the Inheritance and Distribution. As an example, when David explained the Trust, he drew a diagram, took all the time I needed to understand this complex document and its layers of distribution and then, at the signing, went over every clause to be sure that I understood every nuance of these Documents, including the various Powers of Attorney.
David merits Five Stars: he and his Staff are trustworthy, responsive and knowledgeale to the 'nth degree' and keep me totally informed and up-to-date regarding all matters pertaining to my Will and Estate Planning. I recommend him to eveyone in my family and everyone in my acquaintance who is looking for the Best in the Field of Wills and Estate Planning Law.

We have worked with David for about 10 years and have been extremely pleased with his proactive approach and expertise in the field of estate planning. He works very well with our CPA and Financial Planner to ensure everyone is on the same page and nothing is missed in our planning effort. He recommends novel approaches while conveying pros and cons of each. Highly recommend him to family, friends, and co-workers.

We met with an estate attorney several years ago to update our will. It was a frustrating experience, as
the attorney was so indefinite on issues of our concern that we left with no resulution and no changes to
Then we met with David Frees. David was exactly what we needed. He answered all of our questions
with authority and asked about our lifestyle and family. He made helpful suggestions and was very
thorough. We prepared a questionnaire and had a complete will several weeks later. His fee was very
reasonable and we highly recommend David Frees.

Mr. Frees provided outstanding service to me in the above matter. His knowledge of estate and tax law were invaluable in helping and guideing me through my decision making process. I felt confident in leaving his office knowing that I had safely provided for my children and grandchildren going forward.

I have known Dave Frees for several years now. I can't think of anyone who is more skilled, knowledgeable, responsive, and trustworth as an estate lawyer. My husband and I are very pleased to have Dave help us manage our affairs and plan for our family's future.

I have relied on David's legal advice to make critical decisions on handling family wealth and making appropriate decisions for my family's future.
David is an expert in the areas of wills, trusts and estates. But beyond his specific knowledge, he's an outstanding problem-solver, who helped me sort through some complex planning issues.
Additionally, he is superior to every other attorney -- in fact, every other professional -- I've ever used. He inspires trust, and works effectively to form the kind of rapport needed to get the kind of information you're typically providing to someone dealing with your will, trusts and estate planning issues.
He is thorough, and he guided me through some challenging decisions. He is so effective at discussion available solutions and weighing the pros and cons, that when I finally made decisions, I was able to put those issues to rest without the kind of second-guessing or reconsideration that can occur if you don't have expert help.
David is not just an outstanding attorney (recognized in the "Best of" issue of our regional magazine), he's an amazing human being as well. Those are difficult to find in any field.
