Mr. Freed is an amazing Attroney. I was skeptical of trusting anyone to fight my custody battle for me. After searching and calling countless attorneys I came across Mr. Freed. He was the only Attroney that took his time to talk to me immediately. I decided to hire him and am so glad I did. 5 years of constant court hearings for custody over my precious daughter and the fear of having my daughter put into the wrong hands, and now I have sole custody with no chance of danger to my child. Mr. Freed took my case very seriously, and at the same time made me feel extremely comfortable and I was able to trust him to fight for the custody of my daughter. My case involved sexual deviance involving young girls done by the father of my child, and 3 years since the last time my daughters father saw her. Her father was asking for her to leave state and visit him in Pa basically anytime my daughter was not in school. I shared my fears with my wonderful Attroney and he fought for full physical and legal custody with stipulations of psychological evaluations for sexual deviance, treatment, and supervised visitation. Before even stepping foot in the court room Mr. Freed had the opposing side agreeing to all the stipulations. He won all that we were fighting for and then some. He also was able to make it where my daughters father is not aloud to take my daughter out of San Diego county and from here out the only court we can have hearings regarding custody of my daughter at is the one which this hearing was at. I am so incredibly thankful for Mr. Freed and his associates! This man knows his stuff inside and out and he refuses to lose. While he refuses to lose, and takes great care with the cases he works on he has an amazing personality as well. I have honestly never seen an Attroney like him. I highly recommend Mr. Freed to anyone who needs an Attroney for a custody battle! The man is brilliant, honest, he doesn't back down, and I'm glad I had him on my side !!!!!
I had been paying spousal support to almost 25 years as a result of a long term marriage. Mr Freed successfully worked with my Ex (no easy feat) to get the support terminated so that I could retire.
He is my hero.
Richard Freed took over my case after a previous attorney failed to execute efficiently and arguably ethically. It was a long arduous journey, but Mr. Freed was professional, ethical and understanding throughout. His ability to communicate complicated legal issues in plain language gave me comfort, peace of mind, and ultimately my desired outcome.
Hands down the best family law attorney around! He truly cares about each one of his cases and will fight for what is right in and out of the courtroom. If you are in need of an attorney, look no further than Mr. Freed!
Mr. Freed is the most upstanding, honest lawyer that will get the job done the right way. He came highly recommended and we will recommend anybody who is in need of his expertise. Last summer my bonus daughter came to us and asked to live with us full time. She explained to us everything that was happening at her moms. We are alienated over there so we had no idea how bad it really was. We went straight to the court the next morning and filed paperwork with the free lawyers. They said if our daughter was strong willed enough she could tell her mom she wasn't coming back home and why and because she was making the call not us it is not in violation of the court order. We did as they said. Her mom refused to accept what her daughter said and showed up to pick her up anyway. She told her mom again that she was not going home with her and her mom called the sheriff. It went downhill from there. They even threatened to put my husband in jail for not forcing his daughter into the car. After the fiasco that ensued that first week we were referred to Mr. Freed. He walked us through every step of the way explaining the entire process in a way we could understand outside of all the "legal speak". He is very personable with a great sense of humor and makes you feel right a ease despite the difficult situation that got you into his office in the first place. I only wish we would have known about him sooner. We now have full physical custody of our daughter and she is in conjoint therapy with her mom to see if the relationship can be repaired. We only have just over 2 more years left in our situation but we know he will be there for us again if we need him however, he did such a great job I don't think we will.
Richard is THE BEST in San Diego. He not only has a great attitude, that is extremely commpassionate, and caring, he is a BULLDOG In the courtroom. I was asking for $300 a month in child support. He called me the morning of the court date with my ex. Asked me again how much I wanted. A few hours later, the ex husbands new girlfriend called me, yelling. Screaming about $710.00 dollars a month. I was shocked. An hour after she called, Richard called to tell me the good news. My ex even called me to tell me that he wished Richard was his lawyer. You just can't go wrong with this guy. If you deserve it, you will get it. Period.
Mr. Freed is the complete opposite of the negative review that I just read. Obviously a poor looser wrote it....this makes me very sad to see!!!
I highly recommend Richard Freed for he is the best and he will not let you down!
Mr. Freed was my Lawyer and he was amazing ....I have never seen a lawyer with a heart of gold until I met Mr. Freed. He was incredible in every way....always prepared, made me feel very comfortable in the court room, ...he even pronounced my ex boyfriend's name correctly when his own Lawyer could not pronounce it.
Knowledgeable, personable, effective--what more would one want in family law? He handled my divorce w/o anger-generating language or behavior, keeping me calm as he took care of my interests thru the court proceedings. An excellent job by a fine lawyer!
I would give value a 6 if I could. Richard was a no-nonsense and compassionate attorney who represented me in a child custody case where my exhusband was allowing his new wife to mistreat my children when in his care. Richard knew from the outset that my intention was to protect my children, not penalize my husband. He worked through multiple iterations of engagements with my ex'es attorney and helped me keep my priorities in line when emotions were running high. We resolved amicably with some workable modifications to our child support agreement, and avoided a two-day trial and thousands of dollars. I cannot more highly recommend Richard and his staff for their efficiency, efficacy and ability to keep me informed and and aware of my case status. Great, great team.
Not only is Richard the epitome of professionalism, he was also compassionate and easy to talk with. He was very understanding of my situation and was worth every penny spent. He is truly a man of integrity and strong character. While I hope to never need his services again, if you need a Family Law attorney to represent you, Richard should be your first choice!
