I highly recommend Attorney Freeley.
My journey with Attorney Austin J. Freeley began in the month of June 2015. He was very patient with me. Never gave me false hopes or false promises. He is a very honest , hard-working and compassionate Attorney. Not all about money. He truly cares for his clients as he is a God fearing man. I've worked with him for over 2 years. He has genuinely prayed with me, fought for me to his full potential with tremendous results. He was available for my legal needs above and beyond. His expertise in case-law is impeccable and quite extraordinary. I highly recommend Attorney Freeley.

Criminal Defense
While in college in Boston, I was unfortunately the victim of police racism and acquired multiple charges for a crime I did not commit. Austin was very diligent and highly professional with his methods and tactics for ensuring my future was not affected by false charges. The end result was my case being DISMISSED! I highly recommend Austin, he is a solid and experienced attorney in bringing a criminal defense case to speedy resolution.

Successful criminal defense on multiple incidents.
I was in school in Boston, and I was a knucklehead. Thankfully with the help of Austin Freeley I was able to avoid serious punishment and was able to get a CWOF and return to NY and get the help I needed. Now my life is completely turned around and Mr. Freeley played a big role in that. Thank you!

Professional,responsive and experienced
Mr. Freeley is consistantly updating his extensive knowledge. He is unflappable under pressure and thinks quickly on his feet. I am a nervous client and he has had to keep me under control as well as do his job against a team of aggressive lawyers armed with unlimited resources. I have found him to always respond to me truthfully and to be honest and forthcoming with his reasoning.

Austin Freeley Saved my Life
I was arrested in Boston and thought that my life was over. I had much, illegally obtained evidence on me that Austin Freeley was able to have COMPLETELY DISMISSED in court. I was certain that I would have a bad record, lose my job, and serve some time, but Austin Freeley's finesse in the courtroom defended me to the very end. All of the charges against me were dropped, and now my life is completely on track thanks to Austin Freeley's well-planned and well-executed approach. I heavily recommend Austin Freeley for any case, especially criminal deffense. Choosing the right defense attourney is vital; do not settle for a public defender. If you want a lawyer that is responsible, trustworthy, knowledgable, and caring, Attorney Austin Freeley is the right lawyer for you.
