  • Timothy Richard Anderson

    Fred is the most creative attorney I have ever worked for or met and is passionate about his clients' cases. He was a great mentor to me and taught me much of what I know about being a successful criminal defense lawyer. He ethically and professionally does whatever it takes to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients. Without a doubt, Fred is one of the best criminal defense attorneys in the nation. I wholeheartedly endorse Fred.
