  • Brandon J. Anand

    Freddy is well-versed in all aspects of litigation, from the filing of a complaint to trial. Just as important, Freddy does not lose sight of the big picture. When handling a case, he takes into consideration all aspects of a client's goals and resources. By taking such an approach, Freddy is often able to settle cases before trial or outside of the court system altogether, saving valuable time and money for the client. Freddy is an expert negotiator and speaker and is able obtain substantial settlements for clients where previous lawyers were unable to obtain anything at all. In criminal defense matters, Freddy zealously advocates for his client's rights. His laid-back style out of the courtroom allows clients to feel relaxed and "at home" during a difficult time. In the courtroom, Freddy is strictly business. His hard-hitting examinations of adversarial witnesses and vast knowledge of the law allow him to exonerate clients facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
