College graduation is a great celebration leaving one with satisfaction of completing a major challenge; also leaving one with huge student loan debt that needs to be repaid. I struggled over the years to make any payments I could but my health was declining and my physical abilities left me walking with two canes. I reached the painful decision that I would probably not be able to work again. I contacted my student loan holder to discuss a payoff amount on my loan but the amount they wanted was more than I could pay. I contacted Ms Freed and asked her to act on my behalf and negotiate a settlement amount that I would be able to honor; she was able to do that. I am very grateful for Ms Freed's time, energy, skill and determination to see this through - I have no doubt that I would not have been able to accomplish the same result on my own.

Michelle was an absolute joy to work with. She is very knowledgeable and was able to assist me with all of my legal needs. I would highly recommend using Michelle if you ever have a need for someone in her field of expertise.

I hired Michelle for my bankruptcy after speaking to a few other attorneys and hiring and firing one.
The first attorney I talked to made the process sound much easier than I knew it would be. I'd done my research and knew there were too many variables in play for it to be that simple. I could tell he just wanted to get a client and then would change his story. The second attorney was clearly knowledgeable but every time I called his office he and his staff acted like I was bothering them. I'm not a high-maintenance person and I got attitude even when I called to make sure they received documents.
Michelle and her assistant were great. For a lot of complicated reasons, it took months to figure out what type of bankruptcy I would file. Michelle and her assistant were very responsive, professional and I always felt like I was dealing with a person who knew the best way to handle the situation. As my husband says, "She was professional and graceful through the process and when it was time to act, she did."
Bankruptcy can be extremely stressful so having an attorney you know knows their business, is responsive, and who you trust really helps reduce your stress level. Michelle Freed is all of those things. I can’t thank her enough.

I came to Michelle needing help in a debt dispute. There wasn't much time to prepare but she took control and the outcome was better than expected. Her willingness to listen and the advice she gave were top-notch. Fees were reasonable and there was no gouging to keep all of the retainer like I have heard from friends who have used other attorneys. Communications back and forth were excellent.

We had a 1-hour meeting (consultation) with Michelle before a lawsuit, and she listened well, took in all the detailed information, and gave us good feedback about the preparation we had made for our case. Most importantly, she gave us important legal information that meant the difference between winning and losing in court. We had seen 2 lawyers before Michelle, in an effort to get a lot of knowledge for a small claims case (where lawyers aren't allowed, and so most lawyers don't have first-hand experience), and we are ever so grateful for the information that Michelle provided, which made a huge difference in the outcome for us.

I have dealt with lawyers before and I did not feel that they represented me properly. Needless to say I was leary of lawyers. Michelle was great! I did not feel she was dragging my case out to make more money, she was upfront with me in regard to going to trial. She explained my situation and I was able to make the correct decision regarding my case. Overall I am satisfied with my outcome and her services.

Michelle was kind, attentive and knowledgable. She kept me fully informed throughout the whole process. I could not be more happy with both the outcome and her professionalism. Fully recommended.

I knew nothing about filing for bankruptcy and was anxious about the entire process when I hired Ms Freed. She took a lot of time to explain all of my options and what would happen with each of them. She was patient and knowledgeable and always let me know what to expect every step of the way. She was also very quick to respond to all of my messages and emails I sent. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms Freed to anyone.
